Roslyn Road development approved by city committee

Hey there, time traveller!

Only a handful of Osborne Village residents went to city hall Tuesday morning to observe as a controversial development project for their neighbourhood was endorsed by another civic committee.

The Sunstone project, a seven-storey, 78-unit multi-family development, was approved by the property and development committee and moves next to the executive policy committee.

Dennistoun House at 166 Roslyn Rd. will be demolished for a new seven-storey apartment complex in Osborne Village.

The project is expected to be considered by all members of council at the Oct. 28 meeting.

No public presentations – either for or against the project – were permitted at Tuesday’s committee meeting.

The project is located at the rear of the Osborne Village Safeway, and involves the properties at 166, 176, 178, 180 and 184 Roslyn Road.

Once approved, the developers will demolish two century-old homes, including the historic Dennistoun House.

Residents lost the battle to save Dennistoun House in 2010, when the court upheld the city’s decision to strip the heritage designation from the property.

Residents said they believe the project is too large for the site.

While the project’s plan of subdivision appears headed for approval, several residents have filed formal appeals against the planning department’s decision to approve several variances for the development, including smaller front, side and rear yards than is required; no visitor parking; and allowing a parking lot for only 70 vehicles when 94 is required.

Those appeals will be heard at a later public hearing.
