Urban Strategies was responsible for shepherding the approvals of the project, which was given Gold Star priority because of its high profile and value to the city as an important community healthcare facility. Urban Strategies was able to successfully attain approval for an Official Plan amendment and Zoning By-law amendment in support of the project, while securing the preservation and restoration of a designated heritage mansion.
