This large sign, one of three posted around the site, outlines a proposal filed with the City to redevelop the 587-599 block of Yonge Street between Gloucester & Dundonald Streets. (Click on photo to view a larger image and read the details.)
A developer’s plan to build a 49-storey condo tower with 513 units and 2 floors of retail space would completely transform this block of Yonge Street, viewed here from the northwest …
… and here, from the southwest. The development would include two townhouses on Gloucester Street as well as a restaurant building on Dundonald Street.
Tower talk: City planners are asking Toronto and East York Community Council (TEYCC) to convene a community consultation meeting so they can get public feedback on a condo tower development plan that would transform an entire block on the east side of Yonge Street, between Dundonald and Gloucester Streets.
The planners’ request, a routine step in the city’s development review process, is an agenda item for tomorrow’s (October 10) monthly meeting of the TEYCC.
As I reported in my August 28 2012 post, an application has been filed with the City for zoning amendments that would allow construction of a 49-storey condo tower on the 587-599 block of Yonge Street. At that time, few details about the proposal were available. More information is now in the public domain, thanks to a September 17 2012 preliminary report that city planners have prepared for TEYCC’s consideration.
