This report reviews and recommends that City Council authorize the City Solicitor and appropriate City staff, to attend before the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal in support of a settlement of the Zoning By-law Amendment appeal for the site, subject to conditions as outlined in the Recommendations section of this report.
The City is prepared to support a 16-storey building here, pending the proponents accept a number of technical revisions to their plan.
Thanks for the reading. For the uninitiated it is hard to know where to look in those documents or really how to read them. Maybe could be good if they had more plain language at the start. Like a scale saying support no issues, support with conditions, does not support. Most of the public would be pretty hard pressed to interpret that sort of document.
Weird that they are supporting a new build with 70 fewer units (150 --> 80) and actually a higher proportion of bachelor units. Going from 6% of the building to 18%. It only meets the criteria of 10% family sized by reducing the number of units not by actually adding more 3 bedrooms. That seems counterproductive.
