6 large developments posted

Six new developments were posted to the city’s planning site on one of the rare occasions it was working.

The ones I noted before the site stopped functioning were:

1–9 Oxford Dr:

The proposed development will have a podium element with ground-level units. The podium will rise to 4 storeys as the street wall height, with the 5th and 6th storeys stepped back from the street. The tower portion will step back further and sit atop the podium and rise to 26 storeys. The building will have 3 levels of underground parking with a vehicle access from Oxford Drive on the south side of the site. Service vehicles will access from Oxford Drive on the north side of the site.

There is no image of the proposed development that I can find. The site is currently residential houses.


1736–1746 Weston Road: Hickory Tree Tower, on the site of the Starfish Carribean Market.

If you, like me, find it hard to keep track of all the changes in Weston and Mount Dennis, I’ve made a map of all the proposed large buildings.
