We would like your feedback on a revised rezoning application at 2406-2484 Renfrew St. The revised proposal is to allow for the development of a 14-storey mixed-use building with a 15th-floor rooftop amenity space, and a separate six-storey residential building. The two buildings are separated by a central courtyard. The zoning would change from C-1 (Commercial) and RS-1 (Residential) Districts to CD-1 (Comprehensive Development) District. This proposal includes:

  • 179 secured rental housing units
  • Commercial retail space at grade
  • Floor space ratio (FSR) of 4.08
  • Net floor area of 13,263.9 sq. m (143,837 sq. ft.)
  • Building height of 52 m (169 ft.)
  • 123 vehicle parking spaces and 340 bicycle parking spaces

The application is being considered under the Moderate Income Rental Housing Pilot Program.

In response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus), an extended online question and answer (Q&A) period was held in place of an in-person open house for this project.

The original application consisted of a 12-storey mixed-use building with:

  • 173 secured rental housing units (with a minimum 20% of residential floor area secured for moderate income households)
  • Commercial retail space at grade
  • Floor space ratio (FSR) of 4.08
  • Floor area of 13,390 sq. m (144,132 sq. ft.)
  • Building height of 44 m (145 ft.)
  • 130 vehicle parking spaces and 322 bicycle parking spaces

Note: Fly-through model is of the original submission

    Have you considered allocating some areas for childcare or preschool? Or including a preschool zoning type within the CD-1 package? There will be new families moving in and the existing childcare/preschool infrastructure is already at capacity in this area.

    According to the developer, the inclusion of a childcare facility in this location was considered during their initial design review.  It became apparent that committing to a childcare facility posed significant challenges both from a design and ongoing safety perspective. They determined that locating this facility at the intersection of Broadway and Renfrew presented several challenges and potential constraints.  Providing a safe child care operation including drop-off/pick up and supervised outdoor space that met all health and safety requirements suitable for children was the primary focus of the review, and why the developer ultimately decided not to include a childcare use, but to seek a range of uses within the proposal instead.
