5. Community Update

387-403 Bloor
The applicant resubmitted new designs last fall, which are currently being reviewed by City Planning. However, the site may be sold to another developer, whom we met with on January 7, 2014. The new potential owner advised us that they are thinking of making minor adjustments to the application should they purchase the property.

Planning Staff may hold a second community consultation depending on the sale of the land and the nature of the minor modifications.

592 Sherbourne
The applicant also submitted revisions to their design last fall. City Planning seems to be moving towards a final report this spring. They have come down from 52 to 49 storeys, have purchased and are including 15 Selby as part of the application, are at 8% 3 bedrooms, have a 20m setback from the tower to the edge of the development site and are 12.5m setback from the James Cooper Mansion. Timelines appear to be: summer 2014 – tender; fall 2014 – marketing; and construction start spring 2015.
