6 Lloyd Avenue, refused by OMB (St. Clair & Keele)
The OMB issued a decision denying this week on the conversion of industrial lands in the St. Clair West and Keele area for a condo proposal, supporting city councilís position but not that of the local councillor (Frances
Nunziata). Terrasan Corporation had proposed to redevelop the site of the former Benjamin Moore paint facility with two condos (18s & 21s), while retaining a two-storey building for office uses. City council rejected the proposal at its Sept 26 and 27, 2007 meeting and staff appeared before the OMB to oppose the proposed official plan and zoning by-law amendments on
the grounds that the site should be retained for industrial uses.
The site, at 6 Lloyd Avenue, southeast of Keele Street and St. Clair Avenue West, is close to other active industrial sites, in an area largely occupied by low-rise housing.
