Gagnon & Law Urban Planners Ltd. was retained by longtime client Amexon Development Corporation to act as urban planners in connection with an ambitious redevelopment concept for The Grand Hotel and Suites located at 225 Jarvis Street in the City of Toronto. The Grand Hotel is a 13 storey local landmark, which was originally constructed in the 1970s as an office for the RCMP. The building was extensively renovated in 1999.
In the redevelopment concept, the hotel is proposed to be maintained although reconfigured and modernized. In addition to the hotel, Amexon proposes to construct a stunning 45-storey high-rise residential condominium building which will envelop a portion of the existing hotel. Our firm was successful in defending the proposal at the OMB.
