    Looks like a nice redevelopment of the site. However, 24 units is sure packing them in. Also, 23 parking spaces is not sufficient. Should be higher, possibly 30+ since some owners will have two vehicles. Others may have none. However, what happens when a no car owner sells to a two car buyer? Somebody will park on the side street and plug up limited parking that “belongs” to others.

      Let the market and positive social trends decide what’s sufficient for parking. As Toronto gets denser and sees huge improvements to transit over the next decades, there won’t be as much demand for parking.

    I agree with Raymond. I thought the same thing when I first saw the plan. Not enough parking! Especially since it has gotten very tight at Jane and Annette. The 1hr limit from 9-4 was extended to 2hr BUT not is in effect till 9pm… with Queen Margherita Pizza, the neighborhood has a lot more people visiting… it will be very tight for parking.
    And for 24 units, sounds like it would be approximately 2 story (except 1bdr units) units so 12 below on the first two floors and 12 above on the upper two floors. Basically low-rise condos. Pretty tight.

    • junctionist says:

      Some visitors’ parking would suffice in addition to the 24 spots, but beyond that, there’s no reason to accommodate more cars. The location is not that far from the subway. Not everyone has two cars or even needs a car.
