TE3.35 - Preliminary Report - 75, 77 and 83 Mutual Street - Zoning Amendment Application
- Decision Type:
- 27 - Toronto Centre-Rosedale
Community Council Decision
The Toronto and East York Community Council directed that:
1. Notice for the public meeting under the Planning Act be given according to the regulations of the Planning Act.
A Zoning Amendment application has been submitted for 75, 77 and 83 Mutual Street, to permit a 38-storey building consisting of a 4-storey base and a 34-storey tower. The site is located southeast of Dundas Street East and Mutual Street, with frontage on Mutual Street. An east-west City-owned public laneway bisects the site. The apartment building at 77 Mutual Street contains 22 rental housing units and is proposed to be demolished. The applicant has submitted a rental housing demolition and conversion application under Section 111 of the City of Toronto Act.
City Staff do not support this application in its current form. The proposed tall building represents over-development, and substantially deviates from the City's Tall Building Guidelines on height and separation distances in ensuring tall buildings fit within their existing and planned context. This report provides preliminary information on the above-noted application and seeks Community Council's direction on further processing of the application.
Should the applicant substantially revise the current proposal, a Final Report and public meeting under the Planning Act is targeted for the last quarter of 2015. The target date assumes the issues raised in this report are satisfactorily resolved, and that any requested information is submitted by the applicant in a timely manner.
