William Lea Room, Leaside Memorial Gardens
1073 Millwood Rd.
This application proposes to amend the Official Plan and Zoning By-law to permit an 8 storey residential building containing 98 dwelling units and 97 parking spaces in two levels of underground parking at 3 and 5 Southvale Drive. (Adjacent to the Leaside Memorial Arena)
The Leaside Property Owners’ Association has some serious concerns with respect to the height of the proposed building in relation to the surrounding neighbourbood, density, traffic and access. The site is designated “Neighbourhood” on the Official Plan, which means detached and semi-detached residences, duplexes, triplexes, townhouses and walk-up apartments up to 4 stories in height. This proposal is for an 8 storey condominium and seeks to have the site re-designated “Apartment Neighbourhood.” In addition, the developer is in a legal battle with the City over rights to the access road to the Arena.
