City of Toronto and ABCRA will oppose proposed development for 143 Avenue Road near Davenport

City Of Toronto Planning Report Concludes:
The proposal, as appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board is overdevelopment of this small site.  It has limited regard for the impact on the property to the east in terms shadow impact, overlook, and reduced sky view. It would set a negative precedent for future infill development in terms of the City's built form policies in the area.  It is inconsistent with a number of Council approved guidelines.  For these reasons, the proposal is not good planning.  City Planning are recommending that City Council direct staff to appear at the Ontario Municipal Board in opposition to the proposal. 

An OMB Mediation Hearing with all parties will be held starting at 10:00 am on Thursday, May 14, 2015 at the Ontario Municipal Board between all parties.
