Like many of you, I recently found out about the sale of the Galleria Mall property, located at the south-west corner of Dufferin Street and Dupont Street.
Over the past few years, many companies have been interested in purchasing the property but none have followed through until now.
In 2004, City Council granted approval for a proposed development consisting of a phased mixed-use commercial residential development containing 1,600 residential units in 6 buildings between 6 and 19 storeys in height as well as a block of twenty, 3 ½ story stacked townhouses on the site. More details can be found in this staff report.
If the developer would like to make any zoning changes to the approved plan, community consultation will be required.
Toronto's Official Plan also references the Galleria Mall lands in Official Plan Policy 213.
I have requested a meeting with who we believe to be the new property owners to find out what their plans are for the property. I will be updating the community once I have more information.
If you would like to receive direct updates on this issue or if you have any questions, please contact my office.
