This is a City-led meeting presenting the development proposal for 340-376R Dufferin St. and 2 Melbourne Ave. to the local community for the opportunity to answer questions and take feedback. Councillor Perks and City Planning staff will be attending.
Hallmark Sun Life has submitted a development application for 340-376R Dufferin St. and 2 Melbourne Ave. Their proposal plans for 4 towers ranging in height from two mid-rise buildings (6 and 11-storeys) and two tall buildings (21 and 25 storeys) above a series of linked base buildings that are configured around a courtyard and privately-owned publicly-accessible open space (POPS).
We would like to bring to your attention that looking to the West the development is moving into a well-established historically mature neighbourhood of low-rise housing – Parkdale. To the East of the development are historically industrial lands following the rail tracks. Lands along the rail line have traditionally been zoned industrial and rezoned to mixed-use (i.e. commercial on the ground floor and residential above). The tall towers in this proposal look to the East for reference and validation and tend to skew the conversation. Community benefits need to be more fully discussed.
STANFORD HOMES, property owner of 1437-1455 Queen St West, is holding an On-line Community Meeting to share preliminary plans for a mixed-use development on this site near the Queen and Jameson intersection.
In Person:Parkdale Public Library, Auditorium – 1303 Queen St. W. Food and Beverages provided.
