On June 30 there will be a public meeting of the Toronto and East York Community Council regarding the 14-storey development proposal for Crews / Tangos.
In December 2021, Graywood Development submitted a revised development proposal for a midrise at 506-516 Church Street (Crews / Tangos and the adjacent parking lot). The revision reduces the building's overall height to 14 storeys from 15; decreases the number of condominium units from 197 to 164; and introduces additional step backs and terracing.
Graywood first submitted a development application to the City in July of 2020. City staff released a Preliminary Report regarding the application in September 2020. After two community stakeholder Working Group meetings, the developer submitted a revised application in early April 2021, which was followed by a community consultation later that month.
The developer submitted a revised application in December 2021. For background information, including the developers revised proposal, see the Development Application Centre (click Supporting Documentation and sort by date).
The Church Wellesley Village Development Working Group, led by Councillor Wong-Tam and composed of representatives of CWNA, the BIA and other stakeholders, met with Graywood for the third time on March 2, 2022 to review the latest application.
In addition to adjustments to the massing of the building, the presentation included more design details; the Crews/Tangos building restored to its original brick; and ideas for historical interpretation and laneway activation.
In May 2022, Toronto City Council voted to designate 508-510 Church Street a Heritage Property under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.
The developers final resubmission will be brought to the Toronto and East York Community Council on June 30.
