On Sept 25 an appeal by First Urban Inc. against an O.P.A. and rezoning granted to Wellesley Residences Corp (Plazacorp) to permit a commercial-residential project at 46 Wellesley St. E. was dismissed. Wellesley residences proposed a 28s, 227-unit condo with a four storey podium. First Urban owns the adjacent property at 40 Wellesly and argued that the propsed development of 46 Wellesley St would preclude appropriate development of its property - the primary concern was with the western side yard setback for the 47 Wellesley site. First Urban has proposed a 44s tower on its site. It argued that the site is already constrained by the development on its eastern lot line at 22-24 Wellesely and that the proposed setback by Wellesley Residences would diminish the development potential of its property. The board denied the appeal and approved the O.P.A.
