1990 Bloor Street West (26 Parkview Gardens)
January 2015 Update - Construction has started.
May 2014 Update - City Planning, the developer, and residents decided on a settlement. See here for the final report from City Planning.
December 2013 Update - The Bloor West Village Residents Association and the Save of Village Campaign reached a settlement with the developer.
November 2013 Update - I voted against the City Planning report but, unfortunately, the other Etobicoke York Community Council members all voted in favour. What that means is that they voted in favour of an agreement made between the developer and City Planning, which the residents disagreed with. Take a minute to read this article on Inside Toronto. At the December 16, 2013 City Council meeting, I will have one more opportunity to vote against the agreement and get the City to oppose this agreement at the Ontario Municipal Board.
July 2013 Update - City Planning staff have submitted a report to Etobicoke York Community Council and it's on the April 9 agenda. Staff are refusing the proposal and are requesting that City legal be directed to attend the Ontario Municipal Board hearings to defend the City's position. If you recall, the proponent, North Drive Investments, appealed this application to the OMB last fall, after only the first Working Group meeting in September. Consequently, the OMB pre-hearing took place on May 28, 2013 with the full hearing expected to commence in December.
September 2012 Update - On September 26, 2012, Northdrive Developments (NDI) took their proposal for 1990 Bloor St W to the OMB. City Planning's preliminary review of 1990 Bloor St W was considered at Etobicoke York Community Council and is attached here. The Working Group that was formed as a result of that prelimary review, and ended its consultation with NDI once the OMB application was made. There is no date set for the OMB hearing yet, and City Planning still has not completed its final report.
