Etobicoke York Community Council dealt with a number of early-stage development applications in Etobicoke at its February meeting.
Council focused on city planners’ preliminary reports on the development applications, which is the first stage in the city’s public aspect of its review process. This process often includes a community consultation meeting on a development application, and ends with a public meeting mandated under The Planning Act.
3353-3359 LAKE SHORE BLVD. W.
More development is proposed for the Lake Shore strip in Long Branch.
Property owner Lakeshore Blvd GP proposes to build a six-storey, mixed-use building at 3353-3359 Lake Shore Blvd. W.
Commercial retail space would occupy the ground floor, with five floors of residential condo suites and a seventh floor with mechanicals and outdoor amenities.
The building proposal includes 60 condo units, of which 72 per cent would be one-bedroom units.
The Lake Shore property west of Twenty Seventh Street is currently occupied by a used car sales lot with a one-storey building and an auto detailing shop with a two-storey building.
340 MILL RD.
Another highrise apartment building could be coming to Mill Road.
Mohican Holdings Limited has applied to the city to build a new 19-storey rental apartment building south of the existing 19-storey rental apartment building at 340 Mill Rd.
The existing apartment building will remain.
The proposed apartment building would contain 191 units, with apartments split into 22 per cent one-bedroom, 60 per cent two-bedroom and 24 per cent three-bedroom.
The existing apartment building has almost the same mix of units, except the new building would include 32.5 per cent one-bedroom plus den units.
According to the Jan. 16 city planning report, further evaluation will include proposed vehicle site access and location of parking spaces; the proposed number of units; and the size of three-bedroom units “to allow for a broad range of households, including families with children.”
For both proposed developments, councillors voted to schedule a community consultation meeting, with notice given to landowners and residents within 120 metres and others as determined in consultation with Etobicoke Centre Councillor Stephen Holyday, who represents the area.
