Have you ever wondered why the Junction has such distinctive architecture? Please join us for a presentation about the unique local building materials that were produced and supplied by Junction businesses, and the architectural features that are found on many original Junction heritage properties.
The long-awaited, revised redevelopment plans for the former United Church at 260 High Park Avenue will be revealed on Tuesday, 16 May 2017 at 7 pm in the Baka Gallery Café, located at 2256 Bloor Street West (near Beresford Avenue).
We are excited to learn that the size of the project has been reduced and the new wing complements the heritage attributes of the church and school building. Most of the balconies are inset and many other important changes requested by the community are incorporated in the new design. To preview the revised plans, please refer to: 248-260 High Park Avenue.
The developer is hosting this special community meeting and requests an RSVP. Refreshments will be served. Please RSVP asap to: firstname.lastname@example.org. To view the invitation letter, please refer to: May-16-2017_invite.
As well, on May 18th, these proposed alterations to a designated heritage property will be considered by the Toronto Preservation Board. You may also be interested in reading the report by Heritage Preservation Services (HPS) at: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2017.PB23.1.
If the HPS report is adopted it will dovetail with the final staff report by Anthony Hommik, Etobicoke York District planner, and it is on track to be considered at the 13 June 2017 Etobicoke York Community Council (EYCC) meeting. The EYCC meetings are held in the Etobicoke Civic Centre at 399 The West Mall in the Council Chamber, and the agenda is published one week prior to the meeting date. It will be available at the following link: http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/decisionBodyProfile.do?function=doPrepare&decisionBodyId=965#Meeting-2017.EY23.
