Update - Request for Direction Report - Zoning By-law Amendment Application

The North York Community Council will discuss the Request for Direction Report (Item NY26.5) at 10:15 am, on Tuesday, November 14, 2017.   This report recommends that the City Solicitor, together with City Planning staff, attend the OMB hearing in opposition to the current proposal.

------------------------------------------

 

Update - Revised Submission

 

On June 9, 2017,  the applicant submitted a revised development proposal which made minor improvements to the original design.  This revised development proposal falls short of addressing our community's concerns regarding access, built form and privacy. 

 

This revised development proposal:

  • is too high and contains too much density;  

  • does not respect the character of our neighbourhood; and 

  • does not conform to the Official Plan and Mid-Rise Buildings Guidelines.

 

The applicant has filed an appeal with the OMB (Ontario Municipal Board).

------------------------------------------

Update -  Meeting with Applicant's Team

 

In early December 2015, City staff met with the applicant's team to provide the City's comments, in addition to the community's comments.  Applicant's team is reviewing the comments.

Update - Community Consultation Meeting of October 20, 2015

 

Approximately 150 residents attended the meeting and voiced their concerns regarding the following key issues:

 

1.   Excessive height and massing of the proposed building

2.   Infringement of the proposed build form into the 45° angular plane

3.   Inappropriate setbacks and transitions

4.   Shadowing impacts

5.   Privacy impacts

6.   Incompatibility of the proposed 4 storey apartments, with 5th floor roof top terrace, with the existing 2.5 storey homes on 

      Glencairn Avenue

7.   Traffic and safety problems created by the proposed shared laneway off Glencairn Avenue

8.   Outstanding traffic and safety problems that will be exacerbated as a result of the proposed development

9.   Need for a quadrant traffic impact study at the intersection of Glencairn / Bathurst

10. Need for an Avenue Study (Bathurst Street)

 

The quadrant traffic impact study for the Glencairn/Bathurst intersection is required (i) to assess the potential impacts of traffic changes resulting from the two development proposals (Applicatio​n Nos.: 14 102565 NNY 16 OZ and 15 152614 NNY 16 OZ), in addition to potential upcoming developments at the southwest corner of the intersection and (ii) to evaluate if the type and scale of the development proposals are appropriate for the southeast and northeast sites.   

 

The Avenue Study (Bathurst Street) has been further delayed to 2017.  In the absence of a comprehensive Avenue Study, a  ''quadrant'' study for the Glencairn/Bathurst intersection is required to evaluate the appropriateness of the type and scale of the development proposals, in additon to potential upcoming developments at the southwest corner of the intersection.

New Development Proposal - Application 15 152614 NNY 16 OZ (2795 - 2799 & 2801 Bathurst Street)

 

As we anticipated, the NE corner of Glencairn Avenue and Bathurst Street will be redeveloped.  This is the second development proposal for the Glencairn Avenue / Bathurst Street intersection in the last 18 months.

 

Hunter & Associates Ltd., on behalf of Riverking Development LP (the ''Owner''), submitted the above application proposing to redevelop the site into a terraced, eleven (11) storey mixed-used building, with a partial 11th storey containing the mechanical penthouse.  

 

The proposed building will have 175 residential units, 1,100 square metres of ground floor retail and 182 parking spaces on its properties at 2795 - 2799  Bathurst Street.  The application also includes a small part of the rear property at 2801 Bathurst Street.  The Owner intends to build and manage this property as a rental building.

 

It is anticipated that City staff will most likely prepare the Preliminary Report and hold a community consultation meeting for the above development proposal in September 2015. This delay is due to the timelines for reporting to Community Council and City Council, and the upcoming summer break.
