The following message is from the Mimico Lakeshore Network:
The two landowners appealing the Mimico-by-the-Lake Secondary Plan are proposing more towers. Last September, we told you about a 28 storey-tower suggested for the plaza lands located at 2491 Lake Shore Blvd West. You might remember the artistic rendering, see attachment [below] entitled 2491 Lake Shore Blvd West for the image.
On November 21, 2014, Shore Line Towers Inc. located at 2313-2323 Lake Shore Blvd West (across from Burlington Avenue) submitted a proposal to build a 25-storey tower on the back of their lot where the secondary plan allows 9 to 15 storeys.
The Shore Line Towers Inc. proposal was submitted just in time for a mediation session scheduled for December 11, 2014 at the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB), yet had been in the works for two years. For an image of the Shore Line Towers Inc. proposal, please see attachment [below] for 2313-2323 Lake Shore Blvd West.
If successful, these developments could indeed set a precedent in the area. This community strongly opposed Humber Bay Shores type developments in the Mimico-by-the-Lake area.
We need your help and ask that you attend the (5th) Pre-Hearing Conference of the Mimico-by-the-Lake Secondary Plan scheduled for Friday December 19th, 2014 at 10:00 am at the offices of the Ontario Municipal Board, 655 Bay Street, 16th Floor. It may be possible for us to car pool, so please let us know of your intentions to attend the Pre-Hearing Conference and we will try and match you up to a driver.
The Shore Line Towers application will be posted in the next few days on the Mimico Lakeshore Network website.
