The old Salvation Army Thrift Store site on the west side between Dundas and Shuter - across from the new TCDSB school - if that ever goes ahead.

This will be a rental building, which also plans to implement a renewable geothermal heating and cooling system.

Geothermal - interesting. Can't seem to remember too many projects with geothermal in Toronto.

I know RioCan have been utilizing it in their rental projects in Ottawa.

If by geothermal they mean "ground source heat pump", Howard Park Residences is another example. (Source: I used to live there.)

A few Collecdev projects are being built with geothermal as well

Preliminary Report to the November 10th TEYCC Mtg.


From the report:

The following preliminary issues have been identified:

• The suitability of the proposed height, massing, stepbacks, and setbacks in relation to the area's existing and planned built form character and scale;
• The impacts of window and balcony overlook onto adjacent properties, particularly Neighbourhood-designated properties;
• The impacts of new shadowing on the adjacent Neighbourhood designated properties, the public realm and open spaces. A Shadow Study was submitted and is currently under review by City staff;
• The impacts of any changes to the pedestrian level wind conditions along adjacent and nearby streets and properties, as well as the proposed amenity spaces of the building. A Pedestrian Wind Assessment was submitted and is currently under review by City staff;
• The provision of adequate indoor and outdoor amenity space;
• The suitability of the access configuration between Poulett Street and the proposed vehicular parking and loading, in relation to the proposed development and adjacent properties and streetscape;
• The appropriateness of the streetscape, including minimum clearway widths and the proposed landscape concept;
• The identification of opportunities for parkland or open space; and
• The provision of an appropriate mix of dwelling units;
