Re: Receipt of Application Zoning By-law Amendment Application No. 21 119571 NNY 06 OZ 1350 Sheppard Avenue West, William Baker District
Ward 06 – York Centre
Parc Downsview Park Inc, has submitted an application for a Zoning By-law amendment and concurrent Draft Plan of Subdivision for the William Baker District within the Downsview Secondary Plan.
The District is intended to be developed over phases with a broad range and mix of uses, built forms, densities, housing and unit types and tenures (including affordable and seniors options). The District Plan for the William Baker Neighbourhood includes development blocks at the south end proposed for a mix of high, mid, and low-rise residential as well as mixed use blocks near the intersection of Keele Street and Sheppard Avenue West.
Building heights in this area are proposed to range from 4 to 20 storeys. Residential blocks proposed in the north portion, which will be developed through subsequent phases, provide for similar heights in the range of 4 to 20 storeys, with potential for some taller elements near the Downsview Park TTC subway/GO Transit station/hub. The preservation and enhancement of the woodlot is a central feature of the new community. A park at the southern end of the District is proposed to feature a new pedestrian/cycling bridge that will provide a convenient link to Downsview Park to the south.
A preliminary report on the zoning by-law amendment application will be submitted to Community Council in the near future.
