Let’s talk about Ossington
Ossington is the street Toronto loves — and loves to talk about. A developer (Reserve Properties) has recently filed an application for a building very different from anything else on the Ossington strip. “109OZ” would be an 82 foot tall condo (as high as an 8 story building). As wide as nine regular buildings, its “AAA retail space” would be built only to house one chain store. Right at the heart of the strip, just south of Golden Turtle. And we bet there would be more to come. Making for a very different Ossington. A key part of the city’s process for what can be built is “Community Consultation”. That is a meeting open to everyone — not just people in the area, not just people with one opinion or other. City officials — including Councillor Mike Layton and the Planning Department are there to learn public opinion. Everyone can speak, and Planning must use these statements in making its judgement. We love Ossington. We bet you do too. And we want to see you at the Community Consultation about 109OZ. This is not just about one building. And it’s too important not to talk about.
This is an official city meeting. Mike Layton will be there. Planning officials will be there. The developer will be there. Be there. Tell your neighbours.
