Planning submissions expected end of March; Committee of Adjustment sometime in June.

I live a few doors away and am personally quite happy with this proposal, especially since I've thought for a long time that the existing Toronto Corporate Services office, which is a printing plant, should be redeveloped.

That's some decent (predominantly) residential street urban infill. I assume they'll have to request a change in zoning to that property?

There is actually a zoning by-law in place concerning this neighbourhood.
But it appears nobody decided to pay any heed.

It's not that nobody involved pays any heed. The pay a lot of heed - so much that they have to go to the Committee of Adjustment when they seek to build something which exceeds the zoning. It's a long process, and if you are an abutting owner you get to have your say.

So Rad, come clean: what's your situation, what about this proposal do you object to, how have you tried to voice those objections, and/or what about the process do you not believe in?

come clean?

"come clean...
what's your situation...?"
Sheesh!
i don't have a situation.
But on the other hand, I might be well-situated to comment.
But the comment is already made.

oh, sorry...

i was commenting on the by-law they drafted.
I recall living there and going to community meetings,
about the vision for the neighbourhood, and etc...You know all that
stuff, heritage, height, density, blah, blah...
You can pretty much see the intent of it with a little stroll down the street...
High at the edges, lower towards the interior of the community,
that's why you see the step down between the midi-rise and the new townies.
