420 Lakeshore Road East (Beer Store site)

December 2022 - OLT DECISION RE SETTLEMENT: The City and the Applicant, 2828778 Ontario Inc. (formerly Stellarcorp Developments 420 Inc.) entered into Tribunal-led mediation at the Ontario Land Tribunal (OLT) in May 2022.  After subsequent submission of updated technical reports, an agreement in-principle was achieved.

KEY CHANGE: Originally proposed for 12 storeys, the maximum height is now set for 30 meters and 9 storeys.  This reduced height complies with OPA 131 - Lakeshore East Corridor Study, that permits a maximum of 8 storeys or 30m for lots greater than 60m in depth.  The subject site is 60m deep.

Lakeview Ratepayers Association (LRA) will be making a Deputation.  LRA: "This area forms part of the Lakeview pedestrian friendly main street environment.  Set backs would be required for any height above 4 stories and allow sky views.  At present the Lakeview East Corridor Study is underway and should be considered before this development proceeds."

This development site is at the boundary between the Lakeview and Port Credit Planning Districts, although technically in Lakeview.  The LRA has previously prepared a Community Response Letter (4p PDF) to the Application.

Port Credit residents have also expressed concerns, given their neighbourhood proximity to the out of scale development, and the broader community impact on the established mainstreet-oriented Port Credit and Lakeview secondary plans for the Lakeshore Corridor.

November 2020 - APPLICATION IN PROCESS: Plazacorp have submitted plans to redevelop the existing Beer Store site at 420 Lakeshore Road East (map) at the SW corner of Lakeshore Rd E and Enola Avenue.  Proposal: Condominium apartment building ranging in height from 2 to 12 storeys and containing 195 residential units with at grade non-residential uses and two levels of underground parking.
