Community consultation meeting on proposal for 27-storey building on Cosburn near Broadview slated

The City of Toronto is hosting a virtual community consultation meeting for a developmental application at 16-26 Cosburn Ave. on Wednesday, Jan. 18.

Residents will get an opportunity to voice opinions regarding the 27-storey building proposal at the meeting which will take place from 7 to 9 p.m.

The 20,064-square-metre building, located on the north side of Cosburn Avenue and the east side of Broadview Avenue, will overlook the Don Valley to the west.

According to the application, it will have 272 residential units as well as a 223-square-metre privately owned (publicly accessible) space in front of the building, 69 on-site vehicle parking spaces, 273 bicycle parking spaces, and a six-storey podium.

The meeting will be held online and by phone-in only. The call-in and meeting number will be available a minimum of two days in advance of the meeting date.

That proposal for properties at 5 to 19 Cosburn Ave. and from 8 to 40 Gowan Ave., is proposing a 15-storey building and ground-related housing for a total of 316 residences on the site.
