Community Consultation: Revised planning applications for Honest Ed’s and Mirvish Village

I, along with Councillor Mike Layton, am holding a Community Consultation meeting where you can learn more about the revised application, ask questions of City staff, and share your comments.

When: Thursday, March 2, 2017
Time: 6:30pm – 7pm – Open House / 7pm – 8:30pm – Presentations & Open Forum
Where: 777 Bloor Street West – Bickford Centre – Cafeteria (map).

On January 16, 2017 further revisions to the application were submitted. When compared to the May 19, 2016 plans, the January 16, 2017 plans have further reduced the proposed density, made additional adjustments to the height and mass of towers and street-adjacent buildings, increased the size of the proposed public park space, incorporated additional heritage buildings, and incorporated changes to the pedestrian environment and parking and loading areas.

The proposed development includes a number of mid-rise and tall buildings, ranging in height from 28-storeys on Bathurst Street, and stepping down toward the south and west. A total of 23 of the 27 listed heritage buildings on the site are being retained and incorporated into the development.

The revised proposal comprises a total of 804 residential units in 59,883 square metres of residential floor area, and 15,253 square metres of new non-residential uses. The overall density of the proposal is FSI of 5.69 times the site, inclusive of retained heritage buildings, and 5.29 times the area of the site, exclusive of retained heritage buildings.

Access to underground parking is proposed from Lennox Street. A total of 480 underground vehicle parking spaces, 14 underground loading spaces, and 1038 bike parking spaces are proposed on site. The application also proposes 1150 square metres of on-site parkland and a new 440 square metre day nursery.
