Honest Ed's/Mirvish Village Development Application

On July 10, 2015, City Planning received applications from Westbank to amend the Official Plan and Zoning By-laws to redevelop a number of properties bordered by Bloor Street West, Bathurst Street, Lennox Street, and Markham Street, as well as a number of properties on the west side of Markham Street, also known as the Honest Ed's/Mirvish Village site.

Given the size of the site and the application, City Planning have developed a detailed website for the application and its materials. Over the next number of months, information regarding public consultation, related Planning information (Four Corners study, etc.) will be posted to the website, along with the application itself.  The application documents are now posted and can be found on the website here: www.toronto.ca/planning/mirvishvillage.

The application includes the proposal for a number of mid-rise and tall buildings, ranging in height from 29-storeys at the southwest corner of Bathurst Street and Bloor Street West, to 6 and 7 storeys to the south and west, respectively. A number of potential heritage buildings fronting both sides of Markham street are proposed to be retained, while others are proposed to be removed.

This proposal is still at an early stage of an ongoing process, which is an important time for community members to give feedback about the design. My office will continue to work closely with Councillor Layton, as the site is in Ward 19, to
organize community consultation and provide updates.

City Staff are currently reviewing the application submitted by Westbank. Consultation meetings will be held in the coming weeks and dates will be posted as soon as they are known.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact my office or the City Planner working on the file:
