One Bloor condo tower construction

June 13 2012: Excavation work continues at the southeast corner of Yonge & Bloor Streets where Great Gulf Homes is building its One Bloor condo tower

 

Five more floors: One Bloor, the landmark condo tower under construction at the southeast corner of Yonge & Bloor Streets, will be climbing five floors higher as a result of a Committee of Adjustment hearing at City Hall this week.

In an application to the committee, the project developer had requested a zoning bylaw variance that would allow it to raise the tower’s height from 70 to 75 storeys, as well as increase the building’s gross floor area from 55,910 square meters to 68,634 square meters.  The application was item number 26 on the Committee of Adjustment’s June 13 meeting agenda.

    So, Tam Wong doesnt really care about a breach in city bylaws as she has stated on several occasions, provided a bribe is involved?! Call it what you like, that’s exactly what’s happening, it city council should put a quick stop to it, and have her fired at once! It sets a horrendous precidance, don’t want to be turned down if you apply to amend a bylaw? No problem, just throw a few hundred thousand in Tam Wong’s pocket. I know, she claims the monies gathered from these so called agreements are to help local programs, but how do we really know where it goes? There’s no accountability at all, this really ticks me right off!!!
