Update on the 2-24 Temple Avenue development application

I am writing to update you on the 2-24 Temple Avenue development application. This application proposes to amend the Zoning By-law to allow a 16-storey residential building with 273 dwelling units.

The site is currently occupied by 5 detached houses and 4 semi-detached houses, which are proposed to be demolished to accommodate the proposed development. The existing houses contain 22 rental housing dwelling units and 5 dwelling rooms, comprising 5 dwelling rooms with affordable rents, 14 units with affordable rents, 3 units with mid-range rents, and 5 units with high-end rents.

The application was submitted to the City in January 2021. City Planning staff responded with a Preliminary report in April 2021 http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2021.TE24.26 and a Virtual Community Consultation Meeting.

In September, 2021 the applicant filed an appeal to the Ontario Land Tribunal.

The Ontario Land Tribunal will be holding a Case Management Conference (CMC) to begin the process of the appeal.  The  CMC is  scheduled for 9:30 AM on Tuesday, February 15th at 10AM.

The purpose of the Case Management conference is to identify parties and participants, provide procedural directions, and to potentially fix a date and place for the hearing and estimate its length.

The attached OLT Notice below details the requirements for those who wish to participate in the Case Management conference. Further it details the process to view the Case Conference.

A City Solicitor will attend the conference to advise that City Planning staff will be preparing a Request for Directions report for City Council in the near future. The Direction Report will be based on an evaluation of the application by City Planning staff including the input previously received from commenting divisions and agencies, the community virtual community meeting, as well as communications by email and phone.

If you are interested in attending the OLT Conference but have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact my office for assistance councillor_perks@toronto.ca.

My office will continue to update the community as new information becomes available.
