Community Consultation Meeting on apartment building proposal for Benlamond Avenue set for June 12

An online and phone-in Community Consultation Meeting regarding a proposal to build a four-storey apartment building at 9 Benlamond Ave. will take place on the evening of Monday, June 12.

An online and phone-in Community Consultation Meeting regarding a development proposal for the property at 9 Benlamond Ave., just west of Main Street, will be held on the evening of Monday, June 12.

The meeting takes place from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.

The City of Toronto recently received a zoning bylaw amendment application to build a four-storey apartment building on the site, which is currently occupied by a single detached residential building.

The proposed low-rise apartment building will have 16 residential units consisting of one single-bedroom unit; one two-bedroom; six two-bedroom units with a den; six three-bedroom units; and two three-bedroom units with a den.

The location is on a deep rectangular lot on the south side of Benlamond Avenue, across the street from Calvary Baptist Church and beside The Benlamond low-rise apartment building to the east and detached homes to the west.

The proposed development at 9 Benlamond Ave. is expected to have a total Gross Floor Area of 1,648.3 square metres, and a proposed density of 1.3 times the lot area based on gross site area.

Although the building would require 16 parking spaces in order to provide one spot for each residential unit, there are only six parking spaces in the proposal. However, there will be 10 available bicycle parking spaces for residents, according to the proposal.

The June 12 Community Consultation Meeting will include a presentation about the proposal followed by a question-and-answer session.

Those who like to comment on the proposal are encouraged to contact Sean Guenther at the City Planning Division,
