2978 Dundas St W (at Pacific Ave) LPAT Decision

Posted on December 11, 2019

The Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) has recently made a decision about the development proposal at 2978 Dundas Street West (at Pacific Avenue).

The proposal, approved by City Council in July 2018, is for an 8-storey building with a height of 24.3m (26.2m with mechanical penthouse), the partial eighth storey containing indoor amenity space and access to outdoor rooftop amenity space. The proposed building would contain retail at grade and 80 residential units above, and would require the demolition of 7 existing rental units which are proposed to be replaced in the new building.

City Council’s approval was appealed to the LPAT by a local community group. On December 3rd, 2019 the LPAT found the appeal was without merit and thus it was dismissed. The development proposal will now move forward as passed by City Council in July 2018.

An Update on Rezoning Application for 2442-2454 Bloor St West and 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 Riverview Gardens (Humber Theatre Site)

Posted on November 26, 2019

The Zoning By-law Amendment application for 2442-2454 Bloor St West has been approved by the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT).

In April 2019, the developer, the City and all of the other parties to the appeal reached a settlement for a 12-storey building on site, which the LPAT approved in principle.

The Final Order, however, was held, pending satisfaction of a number of conditions.

Those conditions are set out in Appendix A of the Confidential Report from the City Solicitor adopted at the June 2018 meeting of City Council:

http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2018.CC43.8

All outstanding conditions have now been met and the LPAT has issued the Final Order- see attached.

All supporting documentation for the Zoning By-law Amendment application, including architectural plans and technical reports, is available online at the City’s Application Information Centre, under “Supporting Documentation”: http://app.toronto.ca/AIC/index.do?folderRsn=ONqRrnyM7oImjnFtWMiVlA%3D%3D

A site plan application has been submitted to City Planning and remains under review.

Please feel free to contact my office with questions or comments.

Upcoming Friday LPAT Meeting

Posted on November 20, 2019

Friends, after receiving several emails regarding an upcoming meeting I believe that the following clarification is necessary.

A Case Management Conference taking place at the Ontario Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) this Friday, November 22nd is regarding OPA 419, the Official Plan Amendment adding a Site and Area Specific Policy within the High Park Apartment Neighbourhood Area.

This Official Plan Amendment guides change and compatible infill development in the area. It also redesignates lands located at 21 High Park Avenue from Apartment Neighbourhoods to Parks and Open Space Areas on Maps 17 and 18 of the Official Plan.

OPA 419 was approved by City Council in June, 2018 (http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2018.EY31.4). It was then appealed to the LPAT.

If you are interested, you can submit comments in writing to: Ben Bath, Case Coordinator/Planner Tribunals Ontario – Environment and Land Division, (Ben.Bath@ontario.ca).

Please note that a Case Management Conference Submission Form is available on the Tribunal’s website (https://elto.gov.on.ca/tribunals/lpat/forms) and should accompany all written submissions described above.

Runnymede Healthcare Centre Community Meeting Recap

Posted on October 3, 2019

A community meeting was held on Tuesday October 1st to discuss the Runnymede Healthcare Centre Long-Term Care Expansion.

Concerns were heard about the height and massing of the proposal, its effect on parking and traffic for the nearby area, and the effects that construction will have on the neighbourhood.

We also heard that the institute has purchased land at 3434 Dundas St W, and is in conversations with City Planning to assess the viability of using that as offsite parking to ease the parking and traffic load on the surrounding area.

The presentation given by Runnymede Healthcare can be found below:

1521 Queen St W Pre-Application Meeting

Posted on July 22, 2019

Friends,

A pre-application meeting was held on Monday July 15th at PARC by BSAR Group to show the community their initial idea of developing at 1521 Queen St W. The community saw a proposal for an 8-storey rental building (26m high + an additional 5m mechanical penthouse) with commercial retail on the ground level and with 2 levels of underground parking. The developer estimated that the building would contain 70-75 units of varying sizes.

The community voiced concerns about the height of the building, its effect on traffic and parking in the neighbourhood, and whether any of the units would be considered affordable housing. Some members of the community advocated for a Community Benefits Agreement to be made between the developer and community group representatives. Questions were also raised by the community about the previous actions of the developer in 2015, when 27 people were unlawfully evicted from this building.

The developer has provided the email address info@bsargroup.com to answer questions about the proposal. As always, feel free to contact my office if you have any questions or concerns, or wish to be added to the mailing list for this development.

A copy of the presentation can be found here.

-Gord
