Stage/History: Active Zoning By-law amendment request; held a public consultation on 14 December 2021, and now awaiting applicant submission after hearing public concerns
The site is located on the south side of Weeping WIllow Lane, between Varley Drive and Teron Road. The site is currently developed with an eight-storey rental apartment building containing 85 units. On the southern part of the site is a creek that forms part of the Kizell Drain and a heavily wooded area.
The proposed development would consist of a 10-storey residential-use building facing Varley Drive containing 142 residential units, with the 10th storey consisting of indoor and outdoor amenity space and mechanical services. 199 vehicle parking spaces are provided via a combination of surface and underground parking, accessed from Weeping Willow Lane via a drive aisle shared with the existing residential building.
Public consultation found issues around the placement of the building, its orientation, and the potential of future development of the lot.
