No staff report, but development info can be found here. From NRU TRANSIT HUB INTENSITY Mimico station highrise GO Transit is negotiating a partnership with Terrasan Corporation to integrate the latterâ€™s Royal York Road condo development into the adjacent Mimico GO Station. The proposal calls for a 20-storey condominium tower, with 190 units, and a new parking facility on the station site, to be shared by commuters and condo owners. â€œI think it fits into what everyoneâ€™s talking about, what we need to be doing in terms of intensification around transit hubs,â€ Terrasan land development vice president Jeff Usher told NRU. The site had been the subject of a previous application, though that proposal did not call for much density. Cressford Developments had submitted a plan to the city to develop townhouses on the site, but Terrasan offered to buy the property to put forward a more intense proposal. The site had previously been occupied by the Milne Fuel Oil Depot, though the brownfield property was previously remediated. â€œI didnâ€™t think it was a very good use,â€ ward councillor Mark Grimes told NRU, referring to the previous townhouse proposal. â€œThese are the places we want to intensify.â€ â€œThatâ€™s probably the most ridiculous thing Iâ€™ve seen in my life, putting town homes beside a GO Station,â€ Usher said. Terrasan sought out GO Transit to discuss the possibility of sharing property to make more efficient use of the space available. GO entered into the deal to improve parking conditions at the station, located on Royal York Road, south of the Gardiner Expressway. â€œWe are creating this partnership because our customers would receive more parking spaces at a station where parking is at capacity and this two-level parking structure would be a better utilization of an awkward space,â€ GO spokesperson Vanessa Thomas told NRU. The deal, expected to be finalized over the next few weeks, would include a two-level parking facility, adding 160-new parking spaces to the site, which currently has 174 spaces. Rezoning and site plan applications are currently being considered by city staff and already Grimes has said that Terrasanâ€™s plan is a good use of the site. â€œThese are the places that we want to have these types of buildings,â€ rimes told NRU. â€œThe community should be excited about it.â€ The surrounding area is a mix of densities and uses, including an 18-storey apartment building, cemetery, newly built townhouses, bungalows, public park and retail along Royal York Road. The building is being designed by Stanford Downey Architects. Construction is tentatively set to begin in 2010.
