Important Update: GWL Realty Redevelopment Proposal Minto Developments Redevelopment Proposal

Etobicoke York District City Planning Division has completed its Preliminary Reports on these development proposals and will present them to Etobicoke City Council for approval and direction on Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at approximately 10:30 am in the Main Floor Council Chamber at Etobicoke Civic Centre, 399 The West Mall.


Planning Division is cognisant of the impact that these two proposals, together with the construction currently underway on GWL Realty’s Grenadier Square project, will have on the neighbourhood. In addition to its normal recommendations to Council, Planning Division has requested that:


“Staff be directed to undertake an area-based character study for the Apartment Neighbourhoods designated lands located north of Bloor Street West, west of Keele Street, south of Glenlake Avenue and east of Gothic Avenue. This study is anticipated to result in a Site and Area Specific Policy (SASP) that will identify existing area characteristics, and provide guidance on appropriate infill opportunities and constraints.”


You are urged to read these reports and to attend the Council Meeting. If you wish to address Council or submit a presentation regarding these development proposals, please be advised that your remarks, as well as your personal information, will become part of the public record.
