Stop the Development of 42 Park Lawn Rd.

We, the area residents and affected parties, petition the City of Toronto to deny permission to develop the property known as 42 Park Lawn Road as the proposed construction will compromise the safety of the residents and will add to the existing traffic congestion in the area of Park Lawn Road, the Gardiner Expressway and Lakeshore Boulevard.

The issue: A request has been made to the City of Toronto to develop the property known as 42 Park Lawn Road. This property lies adjacent to the south boundary of 88-90 Park Lawn Road, also known as South Beach. The request is to build a 41-storey, 321-unit condominium on this 33 metre wide property together with a 2-storey commercial building. The concerns: The area residents and affected parties have the following concerns regarding the proposed development: • The proposed construction is within 20 feet of the South Beach property line which lies adjacent to the outdoor swimming pool and hot tub on the South Beach property. Construction will compromise the safety of residents enjoying this area. • The proposed construction also lies adjacent to the only access to the underground parking area at South Beach. Safe access to the underground parking will be compromised. • Park Lawn Road, the Gardiner Expressway and Lakeshore Boulevard are already heavily congested with traffic. Several thousand new condo units are planned or are currently under construction in the area. The proposed construction will add to this congestion. • The height of the proposed building (380 feet) is out of keeping with that of the adjacent building at 88-90 Park Lawn Road (approximately 270 feet). • Relationship of development to the valley and conformity with concept plan for Mimico Creek Improvements. • The lack of local resident awareness to the re-zoning and lack of transparency. • Servicing capacity • Construction Noise will add to the existing intolerable noise pollution the current residents are suffering from and will pro-long it by years. • Public Arts opportunity • Poor city planning with Lack of investment in public transportation and municipal services to service huge growth in population. We, the area residents and affected parties, petition the City of Toronto to deny permission to develop the property known as 42 Park Lawn Road as the proposed construction will compromise the safety of the residents and will add to the existing traffic congestion in the area of Park Lawn Road, the Gardiner Expressway and Lakeshore Boulevard.
