Final rounds in the tale of tall condo towers on the Shoreline Towers lot!!
The owners of Shoreline Towers have appealed the Mimico-by-the-Lake Secondary Plan to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) to allow for more big buildings on their property.
Last November, as part of their presentation before the OMB, the Shoreline Tower planner proposed a new potential redevelopment scenario, which would open the door for Shoreline to construct a tower of up to 15 storeys between the existing buildings and the lake, and later replace the existing buildings with two 25-storey towers. That would undo the great work of city planning staff and throw away the fruit of seven years of public consultations, wasting over half a million dollars of taxpayers’ money and setting the precedent for a free-for-all for builders of skyscrapers on the Mimico waterfront.
The hearing on the appeal resumes on Tuesday, February 2
Having a crowd of concerned residents at the first day of the resumed hearing will send a message to the Board that people care about the future of their neighbourhood.
Join us on February 2, 2016, 10:00 a.m., at 655 Bay Street, 16th Floor as we, the community, show strong support for the implementation of the Mimico-by-the-Lake Secondary Plan as approved by City Council.
We know the time is inconvenient for residents; it’s what suits the professionals! Please try to be there!
