Lakeview Linear Heritage Park – human scale planning

Local residents have been working beyond the recent City run Lakeview East Corridor Study through workshops on a vision that includes place making, public realm, heritage, walkability, parks, and how they work with public transit, height, density & growth, sustainability & parkland. Building a complete community, while taking all factors into consideration.

We would like to reintroduce & reinforce the original Lakeview Legacy vision of a Lakeview Linear Heritage Park along the Lakeshore Corridor. Using our existing heritage landscape to create a human scale main street. Please see below for recent images provided by Professor John Danahy.

Comments will be received by staff, however the design, of the trail will remain as proposed, no additional landscaping is allowed with due to the terms of the lease.

Community Notice from City

LINK to Lakeview Ratepayers Fact Sheet

Community Feedback: Any height above 2- 4-storeys at Lakeshore Road should be stepped back prior to additional height consideration. Plans currently show 4-storeys at the building edge, upon further investigation, this is nothing more than a ledge and should not constitute an actual step back of the building.

No direct contact has taken place with this developer and resident association

A Lakeshore Corridor study needs to take place, prior to considering this and other projects that require Official Plan & Lakeview Local Area Plan amendments.

Please refer to the Lakeview Legacy document point 10 (page 7) when referring to the ’10 guiding design principles’ of the Citizens Visioning Plan.

Establish the Lakeshore Corridor as a tree lined linear Heritage Park including an LRT and bikeway on the south side of Lakeshore Road flanking and servicing the medium density south of Lakeshore in the Lakeview Core (strategy 6) and linking Lakeview’s existing neighborhoods to the waterfront, core community services, revitalized commercial and employment zone

Community Feedback:
* Any height above 2- 4-storeys at Lakeshore Road should be stepped back before any further height consideration
* Original ‘L’ shaped building change has impacted the development with land swopping
* No through traffic access through the existing stable community at Byngmount Avenue
* Process: original 2014 engagement was done well, however no further engagement since & previous community input has been put aside
* Ground floor space needs to integrate with the existing Lakeview community (community kitchen to be considered)
* Green space opportunity to tie in new residents with community through parkette/community garden
* Better architectural design to the building
* Balconies should be included and rooftop space for greenery options
* Lakeshore Corridor study needs to take place, prior to considering these projects
