On September 16, 2020 a rezoning application was submitted by Triage Developments at the southwest corner of Yonge and Alexandra. The land assembly consists of the former Trull Funeral Home site and the low-rise apartment building to the south (2674-2704 Yonge Street).
North York Community Council considered a preliminary report on November 4, 2020 which identifies issues to be addressed and resulted in the scheduling of a community consultation meeting. LPRO submitted a letter to the committee with our initial comments on the proposal.
LPRO has been in contact with both City Planning and the Developer and will continue to update the community as the application progresses.
A community consultation meeting was held on January 25th, 2021.
City Planning and The Developer each gave a presentation followed by questions and comments from members of the public.
Issues raised by community members included a lack of on-site parkland, height, setbacks, traffic and shadow impacts.”
The proposal consists of a 9-storey, 30.8m-tall building. The proposed building would contain 127 units, including rental replacement units for the existing apartment building and new condo units. The Development would have 82 underground parking spaces with a driveway exiting onto Alexandra Blvd.
The Development as currently proposed does not meet the City’s parkland dedication requirement. LPRO supports the requirement to convey 10% of the property as parkland as this would allow for an expansion of the adjacent Snider Parkette. LPRO has concerns about future vehicular pick-up/drop-off activity taking place on Alexandra Blvd as well as the setbacks, step-backs and height of the building.
