51-57 Queen St., 18 Queen St. & 282 Ontario St. – Homestead Land Holdings Ltd. – D09-039-2015, D14-146-2015
Applications for Official Plan amendment and Zoning Bylaw amendment to permit two multi-unit residential towers containing a total of 400 residential units. The applicant has modified the proposed development since the statutory public meeting held Feb.18, 2016. The applicant has reduced the proposed number of storeys from 21 to 19 on Block 5 and 21 to 17 storeys on Block 3 and removed the municipal parking garage from the proposed development on Block 3. Commercial space is proposed at grade along the King Street frontage, within the podium of both structures. Additional modifications include: removing the proposed layby, introducing a rear access lane, reducing the tower floorplate area, reducing the podium height and adding more building articulation and massing to the proposed structures.
On June 8, 2017, the applicant (Homestead Land Holdings Limited) appealed the proposed Official Plan amendment and Zoning Bylaw amendment applications to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB), based on the approval authority's failure to make decision within the prescribed amount of time. As such, the public meeting scheduled for Aug. 3, 2017 is for information purposes rather than a statutory public meeting.
In accordance with Section 37 of the Planning Act and Sections 9.5.25 – 9.5.30 of the Official Plan, the City will seek possible Community Benefits if any increase in height or density is approved by council. Possible suggestions for community benefits can be provided by the public on Aug. 3, 2017 at the public meeting.
