On Tuesday, August 31, 2010 at 8pm, Councillor Saundercook is hosting a community meeting regarding the development proposal for 61, 63 and 67 Vine Avenue. The meeting will take place in the second floor Window room of the Annette Community Centre, 333 Annette Street.
The developer plans to demolish the 3 existing buildings and replace them with 5 townhouses.
During the June 17, 2010 Etobicoke-York committee of adjustment meeting your JRA requested this meeting as part of the negotiations. The consent to sever the existing lots and several variance requests were granted by the panel with the stipulation that the developer in conjunction with the local councillor consult with the community regarding the design of the townhouses.
The developer’s committee of adjustment application proposed a modern looking, flat roof structure. The facade material included metal cladding with large glass windows incorporated with brick and concrete. Your JRA felt this design did not respect or reinforce the existing physical character of the neighbourhood.
