Isn't 20 Jackson located in the 'Central Area'? Why is Blanchard or Vranich or other downtown 'developers', not required to submit building permits within a certain timeframe?

The owner of this property is proposing to demolish the existing single family dwelling and has not indicated the proposed use of the property upon the demolition. As of this date a building permit application has not been submitted to replace the dwelling.

This property is not located in the “Central Area” as defined in City Council resolution passed on July 26, 1994 regarding demolition control and therefore is not subject to special conditions regarding demolition control that would have required a building permit to be issued for a replacement dwelling on the property and for reconstruction within a specific time frame. This land is in the Crown Point West neighbourhood and is located in Ward 3. Please see attached location map shown as Appendix A to Report PED07216.

Taken from this City report that I have included as a link within this document where I question a property on my street corner where a house used to be (one that needed to be removed mind you), and it is now used for large truck/trailer parking and half of it now a used car lot.

Should owners be allowed to sit on these properties within important areas of our city that we want to transform, with no plan as to what they want to do with these properties except make some interim cash by renting the space for parking?
