October 23 Update
The revised application for Glenmore Landing was posted last week and is available to the public. Notably, the proposed maximum heights have decreased from the original proposal of 36 stories to 20-25 stories.
City Administration is carefully reviewing the revised application from RioCan with respect to the land use changes at Glenmore Landing. As with all proposed developments, the application is going through an extensive detailed review by subject matter experts within the City including Mobility/traffic, Planning, Environment, and other business units.
We encourage you to review the revised application and submit comments by November 13, 2023. You can view more details about the project in two places:
In response to our request for an added engagement session to supplement the sold-out in-person engagement, RioCan is exploring hosting an additional online open house. Any further update would be shared on the RioCan project page (noted above) and as we know more, those details will be shared.
As with all applications, the Ward 11 office is reviewing the revised application to examine its alignment with broader city objectives balanced with community comments and providing our feedback to both the applicant and city planning.
We have received requests for access to studies provided by the applicant such as:
Upon inquiring with Planning about release of these documents, we have confirmed these reports are the intellectual property of the applicant to be used by specialists within the City to evaluate the proposal. The City uses these reports to make requests for improvements to the land use application (including suggested heights, density, and project phasing) and, if land use is approved, to create conditions as part of the Development Permit application. As these reports are the intellectual property of the applicant, our office is unable to release them to the public. Requests to review these studies should be made directly to the applicant, RioCan.
Further, as there is public conversation about the agreement on title regarding the surrounding lands, we noted that it wasn't widely available so want to ensure the public has access to it. You can read the agreement below.
