33 Walsh Ave


UPDATE:  33 Walsh Ave Development

Dear Resident,

I would like to update on the status of the development proposal at 33 Walsh Ave.

Following our second community meeting held October 4, 2023, the applicant appealed this development to the Ontario Land Tribunal (Court).

I believed at the community meeting that we were making some headway with the applicants. City staff and the Developer’s consultant took us through the latest proposal.  Many members of the community and I raised many very serious and reasonable concerns regarding the project:

  • The proposal is far too dense for the site.
  • The buildings being proposed are too tall.
  • The proposal is not at all compatible with the existing neighbourhoods to the north of Walsh Ave.
  • Although there is a proposal for a park, it is poorly located in the plan.
  • The plan is poorly organized and it has a lack of public access and public roads.
  • Insufficient local infrastructure for the proposal such as roads and sewers.
  • Lack of public amenities locally including schools, shopping, libraries, parks and social services.

In order to address these concerns and ensure continued community input into the proposal I suggested that a community working group be established to work with the City of Toronto Planning Staff.  The Developer has, regretfully, decided to appeal their project to the Ontario Land Tribunal. This is a Provincial Planning Court whose decisions supersede those of Toronto City Council, effectively removing us as a community from being able to weigh in on this development proposal.

On the following page I have summarized the history of activities for the application and included the key contacts on this application, should you wish to stay connected for further information.  I will continue to keep you up to date as soon as there are further developments with respect to this project at 33 Walsh Ave.
