Background: City Planning has completed the Ossington Avenue Planning Study, which recommends a City-initiated Official Plan Amendment to create an area-specific Official Plan policy that predominantly reflects the community’s vision.
Thus, preservation of streetscape, heritage, character of the street, and transition to adjacent residential uses will be key features of the plan. Regarding the height of proposed developments (e.g. condos), the plan states that Ossington between Queen and Dundas should remain 4 storeys, except for the east side, from Argyle to Bruce, which would allow for 5 storey developments.
