Development proposed for Superstore property

1 05 2016

(Excerpt from Councillor Leiper’s Newsletter #49)

The Loblaws real estate income trust is offering a pre-application open house to show a major development they’re proposing for the Byron side of the Superstore parking lot at 190 Richmond Road. We don’t yet have renderings, but the proposal is basically for a six-storey residential building – rentals focused on seniors – that would wrap around the Byron-Kirkwood corner. The open house will be on May 4, from 6:30-8:30 at the Churchill Seniors Centre. As soon as we have the materials, I’ll have a post up. On a related note, I’ve retained Milieu, a prototype online platform for engaging residents in urban planning, to help us provide a richer consultation as this proposal moves through the process. Stay tuned!

Byron Avenue Traffic Calming Design

11 03 2016

The City is considering improvements to Byron Avenue (Sherbourne Road to Island Park Drive) to improve conditions for all road users.

Tell the City what you think!

Complete the feedback questionnaire by May 25, 2016. A public meeting will be held in June 2016 to tell you what we heard and discuss design options.

Beyond the Byron corridor, the city is also looking for feedback on the concept of advisory lanes, the more responses they get, the more informed their decisions will be with respect to their potential consideration in other locations.

There will be future public meetings on this issue – we will post those details once available.

Should you have any questions or would like more information, please contact the project manager:
