Carling and Kirkwood (North) Intersection Redesign
Construction started Autumn 2021.
(Last updated: August 2021) Purpose of redesign is to prevent traffic using Carling/Kirkwood exit from Queensway west-bound from making a left turn south onto Kirkwood. A median will be installed so that traffic exiting the Queensway must travel west to Saigon Court in order to use Carling east-bound to turn onto Kirkwood south. Saigon Court will be widened to accommodate new traffic.
As part of this redesign, a traffic light is being installed at the Saigon/Carling east-bound intersection.
(Last updated: May 2019) The owner plans to add a 10-storey tower on the west side and a 12-storey tower to the east side of the existing 5-storey building. This application was approved by City Council in 2017. Zoning has been approved and the project is under construction.
(Last updated: December 2018) The developer proposed building a total of ten two-storey homes fronting onto Kingston Avenue. Four single detached homes are located along the eastern portion of the site and three semi-detached buildings are located along the western portion of the site.
The development required a zoning by-law amendment and a site plan application. The application was approved.
