King City Corporate Centre (Southwest corner of King Rd. & Jane St.)

Mar 28, 2013

 

The development application for warehousing, retail space and five-storey condominium style buildings was unanimously turned down by King Council on the grounds that the King City Community Plan (KCCP) identifies this land as a “prestige employment” area, intending to provide high quality employment opportunities and acting as an iconic gateway to the village. The Ontario Planning Act stipulates that a significant departure by a planning application from the planned land use designation means that the developer will not have the right to appeal their plan to the OMB, and thus would be required to come forward with an alternative site development plan.
