Applications to rezone an area at Spadina and Sussex avenues as well as 666 Spadina Ave. have been received by City Planning and are available online.
The first application is by the University of Toronto, which seeks to build a student residence on the site. The owners of the apartment building at 666 Spadina Ave. are seeking an amendment, according to the city’s planning website, “to allow the addition of an 11-storey mixed use building with a total of 128 rental residential apartments on the south side of the property and eight stacked townhouses on the north side of the property.
The proposal retains the existing 25-storey apartment building, and parking is proposed within the existing underground parking structure. The site is a heritage property.” The Gleaner will follow up on both applications in a coming issue.
