The Multiplex Proposals Report , part of the City’s EHON ( Expanding Housing Options in Neighbourhoods) initiative, was adopted by the Planning and Housing Committee at their July 5, 2022 meeting. The term Multiplex refers to duplex, triplex or fourplex buildings. The objective is for more housing units to be built in Neighbourhoods. It is intended that multiplexes will continue to be built to the same general scale and zoning standards for low-rise buildings. The Casa Loma neighbourhood is considered a Neighbourhood under the Official Plan. This can be seen in the Official Plan MAP.
Consultations on the Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-Law changes to enable the recommendations in the Report will continue through the Fall of 2022. The recommended Official Plan and Zoning By-Law Amendments are expected in early 2023.
