Gee 2-1/2 years after a development application for a Prelminary Report? and most likely another 2-3 years to go through the full city approvals,
Sorry to say but i'm starting to believe this more and more...


Details now filled in on the development applications page:
Zoning By-law Amendment application to facilitate redevelopment of the site with a 17-storey mixed-use building on the east portion of the site: five storeys of office and 12 storeys of seniors living suites rise above the office base, with retail space along wellington Street. The existing heritage building on the west portion of the site would be retained.

Haha some people here just don't want to believe that things @ City Hall take forever to get resolved
Hey i have even experienced the long delays at City Planning various times, and have had to go through the Committee of Adjustment and even OMB to get a couple measly Four Seasons sun room additions approved

I don't think anyone doubts that things take too long, but, you know, don't post a factually incorrect claim and expect to get a pass.

The zoning process isn't comparably longer than other places. The only issue is obsolete as of right zoning forces everyone into the process. The appeals process has nothing to do with the city either. Despite what you think, everyone appeals not because planning is conservative towards development but, it costs pennies to appeal and the broke city and the pro development places to grow act encourages settlement above and beyond what the district plan has outlined. That's good for skyscrapers and skylines. It's still unclear if the increased densities and scale is good for affordability, livability and budgets. We have community plans under construction since the turn of the century that are already not living up to their expectations. There's still time to correct their deficiencies though. It will be future generations determining if we did well or failed.

I don't know what you want. Things are being rushed in Toronto due to the pressures of the boom. Cities with laxed or non existent zoning are unpopular in urban forums. You aren't going to get much support here for that.

No changes or anything but here's one I shot of the east facade of the existing building earlier this month

Finally, the total parking spaces remain at. 65 parking spaces.
