New development proposed for Wilby Crescent

An application for 10-storey, 131-unit residential building has been submitted to the city. If it all goes ahead, the building will be constructed at 10 Wilby Crescent, currently home to an auto repair shop.

Wilby Crescent runs off of Hickory Tree Road, near Raymore Park.

  1. Has anyone looked at that stretch of Weston Road and its degree of safety before trying to add 131 more residential units?

    Build it and they will come, but who and for what and how will the people who live in those 131 units walk, drive, shop, attend school? Yikes!

  2. This is a terrible location…simply terrible. This location spells trouble. No vision, no real planning….sad….

  3. Apropos of nothing, whenever I’m walking through Raymore Park, I often hear someone from the auto repair shop on an outside paging system announcing, ‘TONY, LINE ONE’.

    This development was actually covered (in fairness it was quite well buried) in a story WestonWeb covered last November. It was announced in a CMHC document as follows,
    ‘The Riverstone project is in the pre-development phase under the leadership of Neighbourhood Concepts on behalf of Homebuyers Development Co-operative Corporation. It is being designed as a 10-storey building with 125 affordable homes. Start-up development funding has come from Home Ownership Alternatives, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation and the project builder. Homebuyers’ financial assistance will also be offered based on the Options for Homes model.’
