proposal-a-benefits-1

Adding and retaining rental housing

This new building will contribute 403 new rental units to the area, providing our communities with greater access to rental housing at a time when the vacancy rate is 1.5% across the city. The buildings and units at 2405 Finch West and 3400 Weston Road will be maintained, and existing residents will be consulted throughout the process.

Improving outdoor space

We are planning to make improvements to the outdoor amenity space, which would be thoughtfully designed to respect the area’s existing parks and greenspace, such as Lindy Lou Park to the west. We are open to ideas any ideas you have for what the area surrounding the buildings could become!

Providing new connections

A new driveway linking Weston Road with Finch Avenue West, as well as the addition of new pedestrian pathways, will improve access not just to the site, but throughout the neighbourhood.

Modernizing daycare space

To continue serving the area’s residents and families, the existing daycare at 2405 Finch Ave West will eventually be relocated to the proposed building in a brand new space.

FAQ

We submitted our original planning application in August 2020, and in March 2022, we resubmitted our revised planning application to the City.

Proposal A is located southwest of the Weston and Finch intersection, and we are proposing a 30-storey rental building with improved connections and outdoor space.

Proposal B is located on the southeast corner of Weston and Finch and is part of a master planned mixed-use community that is already partially built on the other side of Weston Road.

While we are coordinating the development efforts as much as possible, in order to ease the integration of the new buildings into the community, they are being planned and constructed separately.

We are very early on in the application review process, and it takes time. We don’t expect any changes to the site to occur until 2023 at the earliest.

There are no changes planned for either buildings at 2405 Finch Avenue West & 3400 Weston Road, other than continued improvements and regular maintenance work. We will continue to keep you informed and updated throughout the process. At any time, if you have additional questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us either here or via email at info@westonandfinch.com.
