335 Roosevelt Ave - Zoning By-Law Amendment, Site Plan + Open House Webinar

You are here

The owner of the subject property, Uniform Urban Developments, is proposing the redevelopment of the lands known as 335 Roosevelt Avenue. The owner is proposing the construction of two (2) high-rise residential buildings and four (4) low-rise residential buildings in an integrated development with shared underground parking and amenity spaces.

Development applications were previously submitted in 2011 to permit the development of two (2) high-rise towers on the subject property, with building heights of 14 and 16 storeys, respectively. These applications were approved by Council and were subsequently appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board. The Board’s decision applied a maximum of eight (8) storeys on the subject site. 

The owner is coming in with an application that would increase those permitted heights, proposing two (2) high-rise buildings having a height of 18 (east tower) and 21 (west tower) storeys, respectively. The owner has acquired lands to the south of 335 Roosevelt along Winston Avenue and Wilmont Avenue, for the development of new three (3) storey, ground-oriented residential buildings. A total of 361 residential dwelling units are proposed across the site.

With the exception of a small surface parking area for short-term parking, all parking is located underground and is accessed via two (2) entrances/exits at the termini of Winston Avenue and Roosevelt Avenue. Adjacent to the Winston access is a mid-block pedestrian pathway bisecting the site, providing direct access to the new Dominion LRT Station, located approximately 150 metres west of the property, via the existing multi-use pathway on the south side of the Transitway. Both high-rise towers contain ground-level bicycle parking spaces and other amenities.

The application has not been submitted yet, but once it is we will encourage the community to review the full details on DevApps. We are hosting a community open house in September to discuss the proposed development further:
