The Ontario Municipal Board approves a student residence, “destroys” a neighbourhood

“We get fucked by the OMB and we get fucked by the university, and we’re about to get screwed again by the developer.”

Ceta Ramkhalawansingh, a member of the Grange Community Association, telling the Star what she thinks about a recent Ontario Municipal Board decision that clears the way for the construction of a 25-storey private student residence on College Street, south of the University of Toronto. Residents fear that the development, which had previously been rejected by the city, will attract noisy, messy tenants.
