Community objections to Canada Square project result in call for 'do-over'

According to a report in the Toronto Star March 30, 2021, by Tess Kalinowski:


Councillor Josh Matlow says his residents want a do-over on the Oxford Properties Group’s $2.5-billion redevelopment proposal on the Canada Square site at the southwest corner of Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue.


Before the city’s planning department rules on rezoning, the midtown councillor wants a “special study area report” that would reconsider Oxford’s December application.

He is asking council to approve a report that would gather input from a committee of residents’ and tenants’ associations, businesses, community groups and neighbouring councillors, who would work with planning and other city departments to look at the community services, affordable housing, space and economic-development requirements of the area.
