    We should totally have someone such as yourself, who knows what these timelines are make a topic that details how things work in city hall in regards to the proposal and development process.

    The proposal for 12-14 didn't look offensive to me, I kinda liked it. Here's a reno right across the street at 13/15 that was approved.

    but that's a reno and not asking to place a 9s tower on the lot and move the original structure for the sole purpose.

    I don't care. Anything that offensive should be turned down at first sight.

    Here's an update form the opposition:


    Subject: Important Notice from the ARA

    Dear ARA Member,

    Your Annex Residents’ Association (under the Annex Residents’ Corporation banner, which has standing at the OMB) is a “party†in a hearing before the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB case no. MM090008) in relation to the development and construction of a proposed mixed-use residential commercial high rise building at 10-14 Prince Arthur Avenue, which does not conform to the guidelines of the East Annex Conservation District,

    We feel that this proposal potentially threatens the future protection of buildings and structures in the Annex and throughout Toronto.

    To represent our views effectively, it is necessary to engage professional consultants who have the expertise to navigate through the legal documents which form the basis of this hearing, and this is expensive.

    We are asking that you consider making a donation of $50, $100, $200, or $500 or more to help us with this initiative. Whatever you can contribute will be very helpful!

    We have joined together with the Architectural Conservancy of Ontario in this initiative, which amongst other things, enables the issuance of a tax receipt for your donation.
