1830 Bloor Street West (Formerly 1844 Bloor Street West)
Final Update - Construction is now complete and the building is occupied.
On September 20, 2010 a proposed Official Plan Amendment (OPA) and Zoning By-law Amendment (ZBA) were submitted to the City to permit a 14-storey, mixed-use building including 346 residential units.
On March 22, 2011 an initial City Staff report was considered by Council, providing an overview of the proposal and outstanding issues. Staff recommended and Council directed that a community consultation meeting be held. Revised OPA and ZBA applications were submitted and presented at a community meeting I held on May 4, 2011. Revisions included an increase in the number of residential units to 378.
A December 16, 2011 staff report recommended approval of the OPA and ZBA subject to a number of conditions.
In January 2012 the staff report was considered by Council, and referred back to staff directing further community consultation with regard to the design of the development, building massing, and consideration of appropriate materials and that staff report back on any resulting revisions.
On February 28, 2012 the Applicant appealed its OPA and ZBA to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB), and on March 1, 2012 I held a community meeting to establish a working group. On January 24, 2013 the OMB approved the application.
