Councillors on the Planning Committee voted in favour of the Urban Design Study for Piers 7 & 8 which calls for 110,000 square feet of new residential representing 1,071 to 1,531 new units of housing. The plan also calls for ground level commercial and entertainment businesses across the lands.
The proposal, outlined in an earlier TPR article, now moves to City Council for ratification next Wednesday.
Following this, City staff will need to create the zoning bylaws to match the urban design. The zoning bylaw will need to approval by Council after a public hearing, under the Planning Act, at Planning Committee.
The zoning bylaw can be appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board.
