OMB Approves 109 Ossington Application for Development

109ozSliderAfter months of delay, the Ontario Municipal Board, aka OMB, finally issued a decision on the condo development at 109 Ossington, aka 109 Oz. After numerous hearings which concluded last November, the decision was issued last week, June 12th. The ruling declared that the revised proposal issued by the developer is compatible with the surroundings on Ossington and would not adversely affect the the neighbourhood to the east.

The only suggestion made by the OMB was that there be consideration of a pedestrian pathway for foot traffic in the lane behind the building, for those who don’t care to walk along either Ossington or Givens. They also found it reasonable to limit the maximum retail size to 500 sq m, to ensure only small businesses are allowed on Ossington.

We invite you to read the document below or on the OMB site here.

We are glad to finally see some movement on this location as it has been sitting empty for over a year. Expect work to begin soon, as there are lots of people eager to move in to a home in this area. We, and we’re sure the local businesses, look forward to welcoming our new neighbors.
