Private Roadway Local Access ONLY on Viking Lane

Posted in Development, Road Work, Ward 5



We wanted to give you a heads-up that NEW signs have been placed at the entry/exit points on Viking Lane restricting access onto Viking Lane from both Kipling Ave. and Dundas St. W. since this is a local road only.

We are aware that during the Six Points Reconfiguration construction there will be various diversions around this area. There is ample signage re-directing drivers into safe and planned routes during this time that don’t require an access via Viking Lane.

Should you have any concerns with signage, safety, accessibility or anything at all please do email us.

The Humberview Motors Site at Montgomery Road

Posted in Development, Ward 5

There are rumours that the site has been sold. We have not had confirmation of this as we do not receive private real estate transaction details.

However, at Committee of Adjustment there was a request for the use as a car rental, which was approved. During the questions from the committee the representative was asked if a 3 year period for the variance was acceptable, the answer was ” yes as the site will be redeveloped”, this was publicly stated.

As such we do expect an application in the future, at this time nothing has been submitted to the Planning dept.
