May 5 meeting on 11 Wellesley park design

Meeting set for May 5, 2016, at Toronto City Hall in Committee Room 2 at 1:50 PM

After a history of provincial ownership on this property that has been vacant for over 20 years, the city will be acquiring parkland on this site. The new park will be a 1.6 acre L-shaped park bordered by Wellesley St. W. to the north, Breadalbane St. to the south and St. Luke Lane to the east.

The new 60-storey condominium tower by Lanterra is proposed on the north-east portion of the site. (Application at 5 to 25 Wellesley Street West and 14 to 26 Breadalbane Street) The ground floor is proposed to be retail with frontage adjacent to the park while the second and third floors are proposed to be office uses.
