Update on the redevelopment of 175 Wynford Drive
After the sale of 175 Wynford Drive earlier this year, the new owners began working on a proposal for developing the property, to replace previous owners’ plan to build two towers, at 30 and 36 storeys.
On September 10, 2020, an online information session was held by the Developers of 175 Wynford Drive. Deputy Mayor Minnan-Wong had asked them to provide this update on their new development proposal, which has not yet been submitted to the City. Attached is the presentation from the online information session.
The current proposal includes demolishing the Don Valley Hotel and building 4 high-rise towers (54, 45, 47 and 49 storeys) connected by two 8-storey podiums. More green space is planned on the site with a pedestrian connection from Wynford Dr. to the Eglinton Crosstown LRT stop, and retail along Wynford Dr.
The Councillor has been very clear that he cannot support this development proposal. Not only has the Wynford/Concorde community experienced significant development pressures recently but they have also been facing increasing traffic congestion and lack of community infrastructure.
To find more information on this redevelopment project and provide feedback to the developer, please visit www.175wynford.com.
If you have any questions of feedback, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.
It is a great honour to serve our community as Councillor and Deputy Mayor.
