Republic Developments has proposed a 54-storey condominium tower at 15 Charles Street East, currently occupied by the Anndore House hotel and Constantine restaurant, adjacent to George Hislop Park.
The proposed tower would include a six storey podium, 549 units, retail space at street level and 65 parking spaces. The developer also owns the property directly to the south, at 16 Isabella, and proposes a 150m² park space that would enlarge George Hislop Park.
City staff are reviewing the proposal and a Preliminary Report is expected shortly.
Notice of a community consultation will be sent to property owners within 120 metres of the property. You can be notified of the consultation by clicking the "Community Consultation" tab on the project's Development Application Information Centre page.
Development Application Information Centre:
In 2017, CAPRIET Limited Partnership, the owner of the 28-storey rental apartment building at 100 Wellesley Street East, applied to build a new 10-storey building wrapped around its Jarvis, Wellesley and Cawthra Square frontages.
The preliminary City staff report rejected the proposal as an over-development of the site. CAPRIET appealed to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal. In 2020, the owner and the City reached a settlement agreement resulting in the same number of units but wrapping only around the Jarvis and Cawthra Square frontages, leaving the Wellesley Street frontage as open space. The agreement also provides for a Privately-Owned Publicly Accessible Space (POPS) on the east side of the property and adjacent to Barbara Hall Park.
As of January 2022 CAPREIT Limited Parternship does not appear to be moving forward with the development.
