This would be a very cool application if it's the space between the on-ramps and the Don. Possibly precedent-setting. I checked TOMaps and unfortunately it isn't though.

That would never happen. It's provincially owned land exclusively for the highways. It's such a waste the way they built these things back in the day. Engineered for having as efficient of a traffic flow as possible without giving a damn about much else.

Will the new LRT line run by this proposal? Great!:cool:

^ City-owned, actually. DVP is a municipal highway. They could always remove the onramp, and have traffic heading northbound get on the DVP at Wynford. The Eglinton-Crosstown LRT will pass by here. I forget exactly where the nearest stop will be located.

That would be very nice although probably not politically feasible. Maybe someone at BuildTO will see the potential. They are earning a positive track record for disposing of surplus city-owned property and converting to productive use. (highly improbable, I know)

That idea sounds similar to BIG's Beach and Howe proposal. Intriguing concept, though not sure if I'd live to live at such a location.

Anyways, this is likely to be more Tridel condos.

Is this Tridel as well? The Accolade project that was built here years ago was by Tridel.

I was going through my unread emails and found Burnside's October newsletter that included an update on this project.

1250 Eglinton Avenue East (Wynford)

As you may be aware, the community consultation took place prior to my election and the final report was drafted but delayed pending staff approval from Engineering and Water.

That being said, while I did not have the ability to change the application, there were a few key items that the community was promised and I made sure that these items remained a component of the proposal including:
  • The Owner will provide pathway improvements on site and public access/connections into the Open Space Area abutting the site along the top of bank to the north from Wynford Dr.
  • The Owner will provide an outdoor recreation area for the use of young children and a reciprocal access to all residents of 175 Wynford Dr. within the existing building and the proposed new buildings.
  • The Owner will submit a Construction Management Plan and Neighbourhood Communication Strategy to keep all residents informed with updates and work timelines.
This application is going to Community Council on November 10 for final approval.
Anyone have an idea what happened to the application in the November 10 Community Council?

It was recommended for adoption at City Council on December 9/10, and was adopted there.
