HOME DEPOT HOLDINGS INC.
MHBC Planning was retained by Home Depot Holdings Inc and 3589196 Canada Limited to seek Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendment approvals to develop the property located at the southwest corner of Cherry Street and Lake Shore Boulevard, for mixed-use commercial and residential purposes consisting of high density residential apartments, open space, and a home improvement store among other retail uses.
The total land holdings, approximately 5.5 ha, were part of a larger Master Plan for the east portion of the East Bayfront Precinct. The proposal consists of: six apartment buildings ranging in heights from 12 to 40 storeys; three 4-storey podiums and two 10-storey tiered buildings consisting of retail on the ground floor and residential above; a total of 106,584 sq m of residential gross floor area and 14,603 sq m of non-residential gross floor area; the extension of Queens Quay East and the creation of a public park and open spaces along the southerly portion of the lands and the creation of internal street networks within the site with consideration for the extension of Trinity Street along the westerly perimeter of the site.
MHBC, along with the owners of the subject lands, worked together with representatives of owners to the west to develop a Master Plan that would allow the remainder of the East Bayfront to be designed and developed in a comprehensive, integrated manner that met both the City’s and Home Depot’s objectives in this area.
