Summary

This application proposes to amend both the former City of Etobicoke Zoning Code and City-wide Zoning By-law No. 569-2013 to permit a multi-building, mixed-use development including a 1,700 m2 public park fronting Eglinton Avenue West, a 659 m2 privately-owned publicly-accessible open space (POPS) abutting the public park, and a 465 m2 community agency space 250 Wincott Drive and 4620 Eglinton Avenue West.

 

The proposed development consists of an 11-storey mixed-building (Building C) located at the southeast corner of the site, a 13-storey building (Building B) immediately north of the proposed public park, and a 13-storey building (Building A) located to the northwest of the proposed private street. The existing retail plaza (Building D) is to remain and a 8.6 m wide addition is proposed at the east end of the building.

 

The total gross floor area of the proposed development is 65,237 m2, of which 11,038 m2 would be non-residential gross floor area, 53,734 m2 would be residential and 465 m2 would be community agency space. The development would contain 587 residential units, of which 54 would be purpose-built affordable rental dwelling units. A new 8.5 m L-shaped mid-block private road is proposed connecting Wincott Drive and Eglinton Avenue West. A total of 932 vehicular parking spaces located within a 2-level underground garage and at-grade are proposed.

 

The proposed development is consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement (2020) and conforms with A Place to Grow: Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe (2020). This report reviews and recommends approval of the application to amend the Zoning By-laws to permit the proposed development.
