Just a side note... showing children walking down the road, not using sidewalks....

Well clearly they've just come back from Sweden (the bag in the second image) and have gotten awful ideas about shared streets from those dirty socialists ;)

In their planning application they say
Quote:

One of the impetus for this DA is the looming downzoning of this property from the allowable
development rights permitted under the current zoning, to an “Established Residential” zone which will
not permit multi-unit development. Right across the street (Rosedale) though, is the Wyse Road “centres”
zone which will allow this sort of multi-unit or mixed use development with a FAR of 3.5.

But that's not true, they're being zoned HR-1, with a height limit of 20 metres, and right across the street is a corridor (not a centre), with a max height of 26 metres (not max FAR)

Yup, that must be it. Expect Austin to want to make the existing street less than one lane wide. Also he may want to ban delivery trucks too like the debacle that is the new part of Argyle St and proposed for SGR.

This is trying to get in under the wire to avoid the restrictions of the Centre Plan, so expect the councillor to decry it.

I like it. Now I will have an excuse to drive on the sidewalk! ;)

I think their application letter was from early 2018, so there may have been some changes to Centre Plan since then.

Regardless, it looks like they had a complete application on file before Council gave First Reading to Centre Plan, so they'll get in under the old rules.
