Public meeting held Monday to discuss application for new business at 555 Dupont

The neighbourhood public meeting to discuss an application to add more businesses to the Dupont strip between Spadina and Christie was held on Monday.

It concerned a particular application, to divide up the space inside an exiting building at 555 Dupont Street just east of Manning, between Bathurst and Christie, the former home of Leal Rentals.

The applicant, Sorensen Gravely Lowes Planning Associates Inc., represented at the meeting by Ming Lau, specified a bike store, an art gallery, a day nursery, an art supply store, a several fashion-related shops in their proposal to the city.

"Some seem happy because that particular site has got graffiti on it, barking dogs," says Rebecca Hewitt, Councillor Adam Vaughan's assistant in charge of the northern part of his ward, speaking before the meeting. "I'm expecting there might be some concern about increased traffic. We'll see."
