Preliminary Report to next NYCC meeting on Sept 10th, 2020.


From the report:

Issues identified on a preliminary basis include:
•The suitability of the proposed height, massing, and other built form issues based on Section 2 q. and r. of the Planning Act; the Growth Plan (2019), the City's Official Plan policies and the Avenues and Mid-Rise Buildings Performance Standards and Addendum;
•The appropriateness of maintaining one-half of a semi-detached dwelling at the north end of the site (1734 and 1736 Bayview Avenue);
•The appropriateness of the proposed building stepbacks on Bayview Avenue;
•The appropriateness of the proposed townhouses facing the rear yard;
•The adequacy of the total area, suitability and function of the proposed indoor and outdoor amenity areas; •The proposal's transition to the adjacent Neighbourhoods designated area
• Review of the proposed retail uses to ensure conformity with the development principles for sites on Priority Retail Streets;
•The appropriateness of the proposed parking access at the north end of the site; and
•The need for on-site parkland dedication
Geeze, thanks City Planning.

Someone mind telling them that the issues they identified are largely non-issues?

As a local resident, I welcome this development to finally begin the process of connecting the lively commercial strip of South Bayview to the intersection and future LRT station area at Bayview and Eglinton.

Exactly, I look forward to seeing this project as a model of intensification for the whole area surrounding the Crosstown station!

always surprised how the ratepayers and NIMBY folks have no care for what developer is proposing the project and/or the actual design being proposed. All height and density. God forbid an extra floor of desperately needed housing across the street from a new multi billion dollar subway.

Them considering the actual plans only weakens their argument, in their minds. It also consigns them, often enough, to a dark, forgotten corner.

So disappointing that something like this gets opposed so vehemently near rapid transit, especially considering how beneficial it will be to Leasiders to connect the retail along South Bayview with the intersection (and future rapid transit stop) at Bayview and Eglinton.

Especially considering the current walk south of Eglinton on Bayview is rather dreadful currently.

According to the planner on the community planning call the site has gotten significantly larger. Architecture was pretty thoughtful and interesting given the constraints of OPA 405. It was also pretty that most of the community wasn’t aware of OPA 405 (city lead) zoning changes and clear that the only people objecting to the project was residents directly impacted on Mann Ave (which the councillor called “Main Ave”). Councillor Robinson started the meeting with her typical NIMBY rant. No logic. Just random pandering and emotion about change.

Definitely could do with breaking up the frontage substantially and getting rid of the all-glass walls. Otherwise, I’m ok with the overall look above.
