This application is for an Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendment to permit the redevelopment of the Yonge Street site for an 18, 35 and 15 storey mixed-use development providing for 731 residential units, 510 m2 of retail, an overall gross floor area of 58,940 m2.
This application is tentatively scheduled to be brought forward at a Council Public Meeting on April 7th, 2021. At this meeting the public will have the opportunity to learn more about the details of the application and provide input to Council.
I would encourage any area residents to make their voices heard at that time. You may speak to Council at this meeting by registering with the Clerk. You can reach the Clerk by email at [email protected].
You may also write your thoughts in an email and send them to [email protected]. Letters received in this fashion will become a part of the agenda for the meeting and will be shared with all members of Council. (Full information about how to effectively participate in a Council Public Meeting is contained in the previous piece in this newsletter concerning the proposed a development at Major Mackenzie and Arnold Cres.)
This application represents considerably more density than is currently allowed in Richmond Hill’s Official Plan and I have concerns about a number of aspects of the proposal.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me at [email protected] or by phone at 416-346-3090
