Say 'NO' to 6 Storey Condominium in Alderwood!
This petition had 141 supporters
We, the residents of Alderwood, petition Royalpark’s development proposal for a 6 storey residential condominium with ground floor commercial/retail space at Brown’s Line & Horner. In the event that this proposal be submitted to the City of Toronto, we petition the City of Toronto to decline this proposal, as well as the amendment to zoning that would accompany this plan.
Increased density is inevitable, however, the construction of a 6 storey condominium will have many negative impacts on the surrounding community. There is loss of privacy to towering new construction, as well as changes in sunlight levels to all of the surrounding properties. This mid-rise condominium will lead to an increase in population density in a confined area. This will create a higher demand on resources, like water, which can affect neighbours’ water flow. A large increase in population means more traffic on a small road like Horner, next to our community centre, school and daycare. Adding more ground level retail is a concern. The units can remain empty or underused, or be leased to lower-quality retailers, which is what is already happening along Brown’s Line. Sub-standard retail impacts residents. It can both lower the value of residential units in the building and reduce the neighbourhood’s economic vitality. Finally, this structure will stand out in our area. It will defy our low-rise streetscape. It will not fit into the character of our neighbourhood. We love that our neighbourhood gives a suburb feel in the City. A mid-rise condominium will take that away. Development is good, but 6 storeys is too tall!
We request that Royalpark stop this development proposal for a 6 storey condominium and that the City of Toronto Planning and Zoning consider the lack of support from Alderwood residents for this proposal.
