There is an legal undertaking that is asked for by the city from any property owner before they are allowed to tear a building down in the core. This undertaking specifies the rebuild conditions and categorically disallows the use of the lot in the interim, as a parking lot.

The owners of Denningers were made to sign this undertaking when they were given a permit to tear the building on King East and Wellington. As a result, they were made to gravel the lot and put concrete blocks all around the sides to prevent it being used as a parking lot. More specifically the city also shut down the then existing parking lot on Wellington which was actively used after the adjacent building to this parking lot was torn down.

Why has the staff/council not followed this process with David Blanchard here?

Maybe Clr Jason Farr can clarify this very serious lapse on the part of the city to follow the precedent it already has, from the demolition of the Denningers' building on King and Wellington.
