Revitalization of Yonge-Eglinton Bus Barns Site Takes Major Step Forward

2018-07-06T20:33:41+00:00

As Midtown residents know all too well, the former TTC bus barns site at the South West corner of Yonge & Eglinton was a derelict eyesore for well over a decade and is now a construction staging ground for the Metrolinx Eglinton Crosstown LRT. With the completion of the Crosstown in 2021, it is important [...]

Fighting Back Against Overdevelopment and Advocating For Social Services and Infrastructure- Have Your Say On the Times Group Proposal for 1951 Yonge Street

2018-07-06T20:25:16+00:00

Last year, an application was submitted for two towers (34 and 25 storeys) at the northeast corner of Yonge and Davisville. In their report, City Planning Staff agree with me and the local community that the proposal from the Times Group is completely inappropriate, as it's a significant overdevelopment of the site. As it is currently proposed, the two [...]

Impending Loss of 1955 Yonge Street

2018-07-06T21:15:02+00:00

As many in the Davisville and Chaplin Estates neighbourhoods will already know, a development was approved by a previous Council, in August 2010 at 1955 Yonge Street between Belsize and Millwood. Unfortunately, a property on this block (currently acting as the developer’s sales office) was not recognized as potentially having heritage value before the development was approved. City Heritage Staff has [...]

PUBLIC MEETING NOTICE: Consultation on Yonge-Eglinton Secondary Plan 

2018-07-06T20:23:31+00:00

In 2015, I helped initiate the Midtown in Focus review of growth, built form, social services and infrastructure issues in the Yonge-Eglinton area. I believe this work should've been done two decades ago, before the condo boom. After two years of intensive study by our dedicated City Planning Staff, we now will have an up-to-date [...]

The Yonge and Eglinton area has experienced significant growth and I believe it is vital that we ensure that the community is an attractive place to live, work and play. Our quality of life should always be the focus of urban planning. That's why I initiated a review of the area’s secondary plan (which should’ve [...]

Council Approves Start of Updated Plan for Yonge and St. Clair

2018-07-06T18:38:30+00:00

As many local residents know, there is increasing development pressure in the Yonge and St. Clair area. Many of the current development proposals do not conform to the existing policies of the Secondary Plan. That's why I moved a motion to update and strengthen the policies of the local Secondary Plan. The motion also directs City Planning [...]
