Just over one year ago, Dunpar Homes submitted an application seeking rezoning for a two tower residential development adjacent to the Mimico GO Station.  The original application called for two residential towers of 28 and 30 storeys containing 606 residential units.  Dunpar have recently returned with a revised application, now seeking three residential towers of 22, 30, and 36 storeys with a total of 833 residential units.

Planning staff have responded to the new application with a Refusal Report.
