First Capital submitted detailed plans for their proposed development at Avenue Road and Lawrence on June 9, 2020.
BPRO has received a copy of the Preliminary Report from the City of Toronto. For those who would like to read it, it can be found by following this link: Preliminary Report.
This is the first document where the city shares with the public some of their first observations about the project.
The next step will be for a Community Consultation Meeting to be scheduled. This meeting will be organized by City Planning staff in consultation with Councillor Mike Colle. It will give everyone the opportunity to ask questions and provide input about the proposal. First Capital and the City Planning staff will take all the questions and feedback they hear into their bank of input, and this is what will ultimately inform any changes for a resubmission. Of course, BPRO will be there together with our neighbouring resident associations.
We will post the date and details about the meeting here as soon as they are known. The earliest this meeting will be is October.
In addition to reviewing the preliminary report, we encourage everyone to visit the website for this development to provide feedback now. This can be done at www.avenuelawrence.ca, and it is definitely not too late to do this.
