More Work to Do

Hi everyone,

Thanks to those who came out to the meeting on Oct. 3 to listen to and provide feedback on Build Toronto's development ideas for the western portion of the Quarry Lands site.

Build Toronto's initial plans call for its roughly 20 acres of land to be divided among low-rise residential (50 percent), retail (25 percent) and park space (25 percent) uses.

We will be providing a more complete update in the near future once we have received and looked through all the feedback provided by those in attendance. In brief, the retail development and traffic were identified as major concerns. Some people expressed satisfaction that only low-rise residential is being considered.

There was also ongoing concern expressed about the Conservatory Group's plans for the eastern portion of the site -- currently zoned for high rise residential towers -- and how any Build Toronto development might affect what happens on Conservatory Group land.

Back in touch soon,
Board of Directors, CCQLD
