Council refused this application for an official plan amendment and zoning by-law amendment under sections 22 and 34 of the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.13, as amended on May 16, 2016.
The applicant is seeking to amend the Official Plan to permit a twelve storey building with an opportunity for an additional eight storeys of height through bonusing to allow a twenty storey building.
The proposal requires an Official Plan Amendment to change the existing land use designation on the site from “Main Street 1” with bonusing policies to “Urban Core” with bonusing policies. In addition, the proposal requires a Zoning By-law Amendment to rezone the lands from Main Street 1 (H1 MU1) to Urban Core (H1 MU4) with regulations specific to the subject property related to building height, building setback and parking.
The impact of the proposed Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment is to allow the development of a 20 storey mixed use building, containing 144 residential units with retail and service commercial uses at grade and mezzanine levels.
The subject lands are located at the southeast corner of Lakeshore Road West and East Street.
This application was refused for the reasons outlined in the staff report dated April 25, 2016, Item 2 on the agenda for the Planning and Development Council meeting of May 16, 2016.
At this time there are no other applications, under the Planning Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. P.13, as amended, pertaining to the subject land.
