From Bailao:

I am writing to inform you that the developers of the Bloor Dufferin TDSB Lands have recently filed an appeal with the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) which was submitted prior to the amendments to the Planning Act earlier this month. This means that the appeal will proceed under the previous OMB regime (now known as LPAT). No hearing date has been set at this time and it is not expected that a full hearing would take place until 2019 or later. The developer also has the option to withdraw their LPAT appeal at any time.

The developer has indicated to my office that they are committed to continuing to work with the community and City Planning. City Planning and the developer will continue to work together to explore positive revisions to the applications. Should the discussions result in a re-submission, City Planning will have an opportunity to review their re-submission and provide new comments to the developer. City Planning may also bring forward a planning report to the Toronto and East York Community Council to provide further information. In addition, working group meetings co-ordinated through my office will continue and there will definitely be future opportunities for resident feedback.

My support for the shared priorities that we as a community have developed and clearly articulated for this former school site remain. I look forward to continuing to work with our community, City Planning and the developer to secure the inclusion of onsite childcare, affordable housing, a robust community hub, green space, heritage preservation, and overall, arriving at a proposal which respects and reinforces the character of our community.

As additional information and opportunities for feedback become available, I look forward to sharing it with you

To ensure that they get heard under the OMB, not the LPAT. It is a backup strategy if the city ends up being unreasonable.

I think Bailao's got the neighbourhood NIMBYs in her ears on this one, too, so I imagine they're thinking about increasing the likelihood they get the density they need here on a reasonable timeline.

I’m not commenting for or against the proposed massing but 40 storeys at this location will be very tall. The upper units would have a commanding and sweeping view of the city absent the views blocked by other buildings in the same complex.

It will merely set a new, more appropriate precedent. The whole immediate area should become midrises at mimimum.

Tall buildings(40+) along Bloor-Danforth subway line are acceptable to accommodate more families only if there are enough buyers

Why would there not be enough buyers for new housing on a subway line in Toronto, not to mention in great neighbourhoods? Am I missing something?
