Developments, seniors' centre moving along
Etobicoke-York Community Council Nov. 10
A development proposing to bring a 50-storey condo to the Humber Bay Shores area got the green light at Etobicoke York Community Council (EYCC) this week.
The proposal for 2143 and 2147 Lake Shore Boulevard West - formerly the site of two, now demolished, old motels along the Motel Strip - will see the development of a five-storey commercial building fronting onto Lake Shore Boulevard West, a 16-storey mixed commercial residential building adjacent to Marine Parade Drive, a 50-storey residential building of 785 units within the centre of the site, and an on-site, 60-spot public parking lot to be shared with the residential visitors and commercial users.
The development will also entail a north-south public road along its eastern boundary, connecting Lake Shore Boulevard West to Marine Parade Drive.
"Ward 6 is where it's at. This is the third meeting in a row we've approved a 30+ storey building," Etobicoke-Lakeshore Councillor Mark Grimes said Tuesday morning, thanking staff for their hard work toward the revitalization of the waterfront community. "There's not one deputant to speak against (this development) today, which speaks to the work of the staff and developer. Thank you for supporting another great building on the waterfront."
Section 37 benefits associated with the development include $200,000 towards public and parkland improvements within Humber Bay Shores and the Mimico 20/20 revitalization study area for recreational amenities, facilities, and parkland.
