Community Meeting on Revised Scrivener Square Development Proposal

Categories: News

City of Toronto Planning will hold a community consultation meeting on Tuesday, March 20 on a revised Scrivener Square/Price Street development proposal. The SRRA encourages you to attend to obtain details on the revisions, ask questions and convey your comments.

This follows the City’s November 27, 2017 community meeting where the original proposal, which includes a 26-storey (97.3 metre) residential tower, was presented.

Meeting Details

Date: Tuesday, March 20, 2018
Time: 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
Place: Isabel Bader Theatre (93 Charles Street West)

Revised Proposal
The revised proposal calls for a 21-storey (85.4 metre) tower that, consistent with the original proposal, is divided at its peak into 4 equal quadrants, from 18 to 21 storeys in height.

The new proposal also reflects a significantly altered overall configuration including public/green space opposite the railway station, a new subway entrance and several other changes. This configuration would depend on the closure and sale of the L-shaped City-owned laneway that runs through the site.

This project site has a very lengthy history, and the active involvement of the SRRA and several other community groups in it dates back several decades.

Over the past year, as previously communicated to SRRA members, representatives of the SRRA, Summerhill Residents’ Association, ABC Residents’ Association, the two Thornwood buildings, and Toronto Lawn Tennis Club have had several non-binding meetings with the developers. The developer’s revised proposal is reflective of the discussions to date. The dialogue with DiamondCorp continues.

The SRRA is working with DiamondCorp to arrange a separate presentation and local community meeting to provide more information to and enable more discussion with South Rosedale residents. While this is has not yet been confirmed, both parties are aiming for a date in the second half of April. Details will be provided when available.
