“I am a principal with the firm proposing to re-develop 861 and 863 St Clair West. We are holding an open house next week to present the project to the neighborhood, but I wondered if a meeting with you and some of your executive would be helpful. We have designed a truly first class project for the site and I would be pleased to, with the help of my team, present it to you and your associates. Best regards, Mitch Abrahams”

Feb 20, 2019. Message from Harry Lay:

I enclose a copy of the current zoning variances that are generated by the proposal for this new building at Winona Avenue and St. Clair Ave. West. The zoning variances range from an excess in height to an inadequate number of bicycle parking spaces.
