A developer is looking for community feedback about their proposed project at 66 Duke Street

Residents of Ward 1 are being invited to an open house meeting to discuss the proposed development of a five-storey, 22-unit apartment building on Duke Street.

The open house meeting will take place on Wednesday evening, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., at the Italian Canadian Club.

The developer, I.T. Enterprises Ltd. is looking to discuss its preliminary development plans for the property at 66 Duke St. with nearby residents and collect their feedback.

An official application isn’t expected to be made to the city until early in the new year, but comments from local residents will be be used to help inform the application, the developer said.

Information about the open house was distributed by the developer to residents close to the development site. Pamphlets were reportedly dropped off on Alice, Duke and Elizabeth streets.

Information was also made available to residents of St. Patrick’s Ward through The Ward Residents’ Association newsletter, distributed earlier this week.

The Ward has seen an abundance of proposed development projects as of late with 180 units proposed to be built at 120 Huron St. and between 800 and 1,500 units proposed at the former IMICo site at 200 Beverley St.

There’s also a number of residential construction projects already underway in the area, including at 143 Morris, the former Biltmore Hats location (20 townhouses); the Metalworks development on Arthur Street (more than 600 units); and the 14-storey, 140-unit condominium complex to be built at 71 Wyndham St. S.
