Glen Andrew Learns About the Fieldgate Project

Glen Andrew Learns About the Fieldgate Project

Really good community meeting
for Glen Andrew Community
residents last night.

Over 50 people came out to hear
Mr. Craig Cal present plans for the redevelopment of the north
east corner of Progress
Avenue and Consilium Place.

Craig is a Scarborough guy. He's working for Urban strategies Inc, planning consultants for the owner, Fieldgate. Really great to have a professional who knows the area come out and show us their plans. This is a massive project with over 2,200 apartments and townhouses which will take years for approvals marketing and construction. Plans include new streets, pedestrian paths and a new public park as well as street front commercial along Consilium Place.

 All of the plans and studies prepared by the applicant are on file with the City Planners in our Civic Centre. If you want to look through any of these you can call our City Planner, Kelly Dynes at 416-396-4250 or email her at Kelly.dynes@toronto .ca to make an appointment.

 This and other proposals like the one for the old Simpsons stamping plant lands and our proposed city park/school just to the east at 705 Progress, and Mr. Goldman’s plans for the grassy field just north of the McCowan SRT Station will change the face of our Centre east of McCowan. Glen Andrew is committed to working with our Councillors, our Staff and the applicants to make sure these are the very best we can achieve for our Scarborough Centre.
