Rais­ing the roof on Yonge St.

Richmond Hill Post - - Neighbourh­ood News -

A new condo has been ap­proved on Yonge Street, and the de­vel­oper is on course to build beyond the orig­i­nal height limit.

The tower is set to be a 34-storey mixed-use build­ing with 431 dwellings and three floors of com­mer­cial space. The de­vel­oper, the Con­ser­va­tory Group, doesn’t want to add any floors, but in­stead wants to in­crease the floor-to-ceil­ing height in each dwelling by one foot. The prop­erty is the fi­nal build­ing to go up on the block of Yonge Street, Hol­ly­wood Av­enue, Doris Av­enue and Spring Gar­den Av­enue.

“For this new­est ap­pli­ca­tion we were look­ing at in­creas­ing the height max­i­mum from 100 me­ters to 114 me­ters,” said Paul Bryne, man­ager of plan­ning in North York.

But ac­cord­ing to Bryne, Toronto City Coun­cil took too long to make a decision on the height lim­its, so the de­vel­op­ers ap­pealed to the OMB. The hear­ing is set for Feb. 5.
