Update: Westbank will be begin large scale exterior demolition of the Honest Ed’s store beginning September 27 or 28. The work will begin at the rear parking lot with trucks exiting through the alley onto Lennox Street. All work will take place between 7 am and 4 pm.
Our community’s involvement in the Mirvish Village redevelopment is continuing through a process of committee discussions between Westbank (the developer) the councillors, the City, four local residents associations, local businesses and other stakeholders.
City Council’s approval of the development, driven by Councillors Cressy and Layton, included ongoing community input on construction management and planning, site plan, park space, public realm and a new business plan.
The mandate of the Construction Management Committee (CMC) is to provide community input and advice throughout the construction of Westbank’s redevelopment of Mirvish Village and the former Honest Ed’s store. The CMC is an advisory committee and not a formal commenting or decision-making body. The CMC will take a productive and proactive approach to problem solving by reviewing, highlighting potential concerns and working to solve those concerns before they take place.
