Television City – Submit Comments Now

As you may be aware, Lamb Corp is planning to build two towers, 30 and 40 storeys, on the CHCH site at Caroline and Jackson.  The total number of units is planned to be 618 — a huge number for this relatively small infill property.

The proposed design with two glass towers, has been publicized extensively in local media and on the display signs on the property, and Lamb Corp has gone so far as to set up a sales office with floor plans and pricing.

All of this has happened without having an approved plan!

The lot is zoned D6, which calls for 15 metres in height.  The towers Lamb Corp are proposing will be 125 metres — quite a large difference.

  1. They look taller than the escarpment!

  2. New Horizons tried to build Tower 3 with 16 floors
    They were turned down
    This new project is just a few blocks away
    They should be turned down as well
    The Durand Neighbourhood cannot handle all the cars from the visitors that these twos towers will generate
    Plus how long the streets will be tied up during this construction

  3. There is absolutely no transition into the neighbourhood, particularly to the east on Wesanford Place. This cul de sac is zoned Residential C Protected.

  4. Janice is so correct. The proposed development is far beyond the height of already standing apartment buildings in the area but what a shock with respect to Wesanford Place!

    I’ve sent my comments to Tiffany Singh and J. Farr. Thank you for sending.
    We need responsible development for our neighbourhood.
