Fight brewing over Satin Finish development.

The city is gearing up for a fight over the Satin Finish development on Oak Street.

The original plan had called for 99 townhomes; the developers now want about 500 units, including two 8-storey apartment buildings and a retirement home—and only two entrances off Knob Hill.

The developers are appealing to the OMB, and City Council approved sending a lawyer to oppose the appeal and insist that:

  • The plan meets the bylaws (1, 2) about lot size, setback, and maximum height
  • That traffic flows have been studied and accepted by the city
  • Stormwater will be managed
  • There are community benefits, and that “the required warning clauses from the Toronto District School Board and the Toronto Green Standard requirements” are given.

  1. RIght after the regulation bending for the excess height of the towers to be built at Lawrence, this regulation bending? We know what this kind is developer-driven construction means — we have bleakness of Weston Rd already, and we’ve had the years of mud and mess and traffic congestion with Metrolinx.
