Kitchissippi development overview

You are here

It’s busy as never before right now in the ward, with development being contemplated spurred particularly by the LRT and market demand for rental housing. Before I take some holidays, I’ve asked Fiona to catch us up on the development applications that are currently in process or likely to be this fall.

There are several complex projects that are currently active and in their consultation phases that are keeping us busy. Most of these have submitted applications to the City, and I’ve linked to those documents where those are available. As I note at the bottom of this post, there are several more processes that I expect to kick off in the coming weeks, and I'll update this list when I can. In addition to what's below, there are several projects in the last phases of their site plan approvals or under construction, and my office continues to work through the issues associated with those.

A reminder that for any project that has an application before the City, including many already approved, you can visit the City's development applications site to view more information.

  • At 327 Richmond, the owners have shown the community their plan for a 184-unit, nine-storey mixed-use building
  • At 1705 Carling, the owners have shown the community their plans for a 22-storey 194-unit mixed-use tower and nine-storey retirement home
  • At 250-252 Hinchey, the owners have shown the community their plans for a low-rise three-storey 16-unit apartment building
  • At 243-245 Hinchey, the owners have shown the community their plans for a low-rise three-storey 18-unit apartment building
  • At 2046-2050 Scott Street and 301 Ashton, the owners have shown the community their plans for a 30-storey 353-unit mixed-use tower
  • At 1655 Carling, the owners have shown the community plans for an 18-storey mixed-use 260-unit tower
  • At 171-179 Armstrong the City has circulated a head’s-up for a three-storey, 32-unit apartment building with three-storey detached dwelling on Carruthers
  • At Byron/Highcroft/Churchill, the owners have shown the community plans for a six-storey 73-unit mixed-use building
  • At 2070 Scott, the owner has shown the community plans for a 25-storey, 243-unit residential tower
  • At 951 Gladstone (at Loretta), the owner has shown the community plans for three high-rises incorporating the Enriched Bread Artists building

These are at different stages in the process and I expect Planning Committee will be voting on these with some as early as late August and continuing through early winter.

This is not a comprehensive list. I expect that in the coming weeks there will be several other very significant applications moving forward for which we'll hold open houses and disseminate details in late August/early September. The developers, however, are not ready to share those plans. However, I can share that I anticipate two important processes to get underway in late August or later in the fall.

  • A new high-density proposal for the former Nielsen Dairy (Clyde and the 417)
  • A site plan application for 163-167 Parkdale (an already approved high-rise)
