Notice of Intention to Designate - 61-69 Niagara Street

Topic

  • Heritage > Intention to designate a heritage property

Notice Date

2020-01-10

Take notice that Toronto City Council intends to designate the lands and building known municipally as 61-69 Niagara Street, under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Reasons for Designation

Essery Row (Part Of)

The properties at 61-69 Niagara Street are worthy of designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for their cultural heritage value, and meet Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation under all three categories of design, associative and contextual value.

Description

Located on the south side of the street west of Bathurst Street and adjacent to the mid-19th century heritage property at 89-109 Niagara Street in the South Niagara District neighbourhood, the properties at 61-69 Niagara Street contain five two-storey Late Victorian-era row houses completed in 1885 by original owner William H. Essery, and first occupied by working class families. The subject properties are part of a larger set of seventeen row houses built together by the Essery family at 55-87 Niagara Street. Two of these (75 and 77 Niagara Street) were demolished in 1963 to accommodate a public laneway. While their loss interrupts the original contiguous row, the overall integrity of the historic row is not negatively impacted. In August 2014, City Council adopted the South Niagara Planning Strategy, which includes a Heritage Study identifying the subject properties as having potential cultural heritage value for their contribution to defining, supporting and maintaining the late 19th-century character of the area. 

Statement of Cultural Heritage Value

The properties at 61-69 Niagara Street are valued for their design as part of an intact set of fifteen remaining 2-storey Victorian-era row houses constructed together in 1885-1886 and representative of the rise of speculative development in downtown Toronto in the late-nineteenth century to meet the housing demands of a burgeoning population. With their polychromatic brickwork, shared scale, and organization of the principal (north) elevations, these paired and mirrored row houses are unified by the rhythm of the placement of their window and door openings. 

The subject properties are also valued for their association with the Essery family, who owned and developed nearly the entire portion of the south side of Niagara Street between Bathurst and Tecumseth over the course of the 1880s. After establishing The Essery Manufacturing Company on the site of today’s National Casket Company Factories heritage property at the west end of the block in the early 1880s, the local manufacturers and builders William H. and William L. Essery purchased the vacant lots at 55-87 Niagara Street on speculation and promptly sold them following development. 

The Essery Row, including 61-69 Niagara Street, provides a consistent stretch of building fabric that is valued for its importance in defining, maintaining and supporting the historical character of the South Niagara District neighbourhood in the late-1800s as a largely working class residential community with larger scale industrial uses along its southern edge, including the adjacent National Casket Company Factories complex, which was also once the location of the Essery Manufacturing Company.

Comprising five two-storey row houses within the set of remaining fifteen dwellings built together, the properties at 61-69 Niagara Street are historically and visually linked to their setting along the northern edge of the CPR and GTR railway tracks, and within an area that has maintained a consistent built form, pattern of use and heritage character established more than 120 years ago.

Heritage Attributes

The heritage attributes of all five house-form buildings at 61-69 Niagara Street are:

·         The location of the row houses on the south side of Niagara Street, including the set back and orientation

·         The scale, form and massing of the row houses including their two-storey height and L-shaped plan on a raised basement, and gable roof with each mirrored pair containing a central cross-gable on the principal (north) elevation

·         The mirrored organization of the principal (north) elevations with their side-by-side entrances, single-storey bay windows and symmetrically-arranged windows at the second floor level

·         On the principal (north) elevations, the segmental-arched window and door openings

·         The materials with the red brick cladding and buff brick detailing, the pointed buff brick headers above all openings, and the existing wooden window- and door-frames and sills

·         On the principal (north) elevations, the transom surmounting the main entrance

Notice of an objection to the proposed designation may be served on the City Clerk, Attention:  Ellen Devlin, Administrator, Toronto and East York Community Council, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen Street West, 2nd floor, Toronto, Ontario, M5H 2N2, within thirty days of January 10, 2020, which is February 10, 2020.

Notice of Intention to Designate - 90 Croatia Street (980 Dufferin Street)

Topic

  • Heritage > Designation of a heritage property

Notice Date

2020-01-08

Take notice that Toronto City Council intends to designate the lands and building known municipally as 90 Croatia Street (980 Dufferin Street) under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Reasons for Designation

Kent School

The property at 90 Croatia Street (with the entrance address at 980 Dufferin Street) is worthy of designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value, and meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation, under all three categories of design, associative and contextual value.

Description

The property at 90 Croatia Street (with the entrance address at 980 Dufferin Street) is located on the southwest corner of Bloor Street West and Dufferin Street in the Toronto neighbourhood of Brockton.  It contains the Kent School, a three-storey institutional building that was commissioned in 1907 by the Toronto Board of Education as the largest public school in Toronto to serve the rapidly growing west end of the city.  Named for the Board’s co-chair and one of its longest serving trustees, Herbert A. E. Kent, the first eight rooms of the school opened in 1908, with the remainder completed the next year.  Following the growth of the school population after World War II, the south wing was added in 1960.  The Kent School was declared surplus by the Toronto District School Board in 2016.

Statement of Cultural Heritage Value

The Kent School has design value as a well-crafted school building with Edwardian Classical styling.  It was one of the first schools completed according to the Ogden Plan, created by the Toronto Board of Education’s Buildings Department to improve health and safety in new facilities, including egress, lighting and ventilation.  The Kent School features the T-shaped plan with the multiple entrances and oversized openings associated with the Ogden Plan in a design highlighted by classical detailing that remains on the main (east) and north (side) elevations.

The property at 90 Croatia Street (with the entrance address at 980 Dufferin Street) is historically associated with the development and expansion of Brockton, which was incorporated as a village and town before 1884 when it became one of the first independent municipalities to be annexed by the City of Toronto.  At the west end of the rapidly expanding city, Brockton was the focus of immigration and residential development in the early 1900s, leading to the need for new educational facilities, including the Kent School.

As an institution of significance in Brockton, the Kent School was originally designed as the largest custom-built public school in Toronto to meet the demand for educational facilities that accompanied the increase in immigration and the westward growth of the city after the turn of the 20th century.  In response to another population surge following World War II, the south wing was added to the Kent School as it continued to serve the Brockton community.

The Kent School is linked historically to architect C. H. Bishop through his role as Superintendent of Buildings for the Toronto Board of Education during the period when the school was designed and constructed.  Bishop is credited with dozens of elementary and secondary schools in Toronto during his thirty-year career and, to address the demand for new and larger schools in the early 20th century, developed standardized plans for the Board of Education with features that were considered innovative at the time.

Contextually, the property at 90 Croatia Street helped define the historical context of Brockton where it remains historically, physically and visually linked to its setting on the southwest corner of Bloor Street West and Dufferin Street, a major intersection in Toronto.  With its scale, design and orientation facing Dufferin Street, The Kent School is highly visible and a local landmark in Brockton.

Heritage Attributes

The heritage attributes of the Kent School at 90 Croatia Street (with the entrance address of 980 Dufferin Street) are:

   -         The setback, placement and orientation of the building on the west side of Dufferin Street, south of Bloor Street

   -         The scale, form and massing of the three-storey T-shaped building with the textured stone base with the stone coping and the flat-headed window openings

   -         The materials, with the red brick cladding and the brick, stone, metal and wood detailing

   -         The flat roof, with the stepped brick parapets with the stone coping and the metal cornice incorporating the name “Kent School” (east) on the east, north and south ends of the main body of the building (the parapets have been modified)

   -         The principal (east) elevation facing Dufferin Street, which is organized into five sections with frontispieces in the centre and on the north and south ends, and the stone cornice that extends across the entire elevation between the first- and second-storey window openings

   -         The central frontispiece, which extends three bays and has twin entrances in the first (ground) floor that are separated by a single flat-headed window opening containing three sash windows (the windows have been replaced)

   -         The twin entrances (east), which are accessed by stone staircases, with the stone doorcases with the triangular pediments supported on brackets that contain pairs of panelled wood doors with glass inserts and flat-headed multi-paned transoms (the doors are not original)

   -         On the central frontispiece, above the entrances, the two-storey colonnade with the four stone semi-engaged Ionic columns that organize the flat-headed window openings in the second and third stories with the stone sills and aprons, which contain three sash windows in the centre bay and two sash windows in the outer bays (the windows have been replaced)

   -         On the bays flanking the central frontispiece, in all three stories, the large flat-headed window openings, which contain four sash windows, with the stone sills and, beneath the second- and third-storey openings, stone aprons

   -         The north (side) elevation where, above the first storey with the banded brickwork and the entrance, the upper two stories are organized into three bays by brick pilasters with stone detailing and the outer two bays have brick panel

   -         On the north elevation, the entrance that is centered in the first (ground) floor, with the stone stairs, the pair of panelled wood doors with glass inserts, the multi-paned flat transoms, and the open porch with the brick piers, the wood columns and semi-engaged columns, and the triangular pediment with the modillion blocks and mouldings (the doors are not original0

   -         Above the north entrance, the single flat-headed window opening in the second and third stories, with the brick flat arch, stone sills and two sash windows (the windows have been replaced)

   -         The south (side) elevation, which is partially concealed by the 1960 wing, with the cladding, detailing and fenestration

The rear (west) elevation and the rear (south) wing of the original school, and the 1960 south addition, are not identified as heritage attributes.

Notice of an objection to the proposed designation may be served on the City Clerk, Attention:  Ellen Devlin, Administrator, Toronto and East York Community Council, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen Street West, 2nd floor, Toronto, Ontario, M5H 2N2, within thirty days of January 8, 2020, which is February 7, 2020.

Notice of Intention to Designate - 38 Camden Street

Topic

  • Heritage > Designation of a heritage property

Notice Date

2020-01-08

Take notice that Toronto City Council intends to designate the lands and building known municipally as 38 Camden Street, under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Reasons for Designation

Edward Green Building

The property at 38 Camden Street (including the entrance address at 40 Camden Street) is worthy of designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value, and meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation under all three categories of design, associative and contextual value.

Description

The property at 38 Camden Street is located on the north side of the street between Spadina Avenue (east) and Brant Street (west) in the King-Spadina neighbourhood.  It contains a commercial building that was completed in 1952 for Edward Green according to the plans of Toronto architect E. I. Richmond.

The property at 38 Camden Street was listed on the City of Toronto's Heritage Register in December 2017.  The King-Spadina HCD Plan (2016) identifies 38 Camden Street as a contributing heritage property.  Council designated the King-Spadina Heritage Conservation District (HCD) under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act in October 2017 by By-law 1111-2017, which was amended by By-law 1241-2017.  In 2019, the HCD was under appeal. 

Statement of Significance

The Edward Green Building has cultural heritage value for its design as a Mid-Century Modern factory and warehouse that is part of a surviving collection of post-World War II commercial buildings on Camden Street.  The subject building is distinguished by the treatment of its principal (south) elevation facing Camden Street with vertical and horizontal elements, including the frontispiece with the narrow vertical window opening and the recessed window openings in the flanking bays. 

The property at 38 Camden Street is valued historically for its contribution to the development, evolution and regeneration of the King-Spadina neighbourhood during the 20th century.  After the Great Fire of 1904, the area changed from an institutional enclave adjoined by residential subdivisions to Toronto's new manufacturing district.  Following World War II when many manufacturers left King-Spadina for the city’s suburbs, portions of the community were redeveloped with low-rise commercial buildings, including the Edward Green Building and its surviving neighbours on Camden Street.

The Edward Green Building was designed by architect E. I. (Edward Isaac) Richmond (1908-1982) who, after opening a solo practice in the late 1930s, “employed a progressive modernist style in his early commissions” while designing, extending and altering residential and commercial buildings in Toronto.  During the post-World War II era when he became “one of the most prolific designers of apartment towers in Toronto,” Richmond also designed low-rise factories and warehouses in King-Spadina, including the subject building (quotations from Biographical Dictionary of Architects in Canada, 1800-1950).

Contextually, the property at 38 Camden Street has value through its support for the historical character of the King-Spadina neighbourhood.  The Edward Green Building is part of an important collection of buildings that represent the evolution of King-Spadina from its origins as an institutional and residential enclave in the 19th century, to its redevelopment as the City’s new manufacturing centre in the early 20th century, and its transformation after World War II with low-rise commercial edifices.  The Edward Green Building is also historically and visually linked to its setting on the north side of Camden Street between Spadina Avenue and Brant Street where it is part of an enclave of surviving mid-20th century commercial buildings that are recognized on the City of Toronto's Heritage Register.

Heritage Attributes

The heritage attributes of the Edward Green Building on the property at 38 Camden Street are:

   -         The placement, setback and orientation of the building on the north side of the street

   -         The scale, form and massing of the two-storey building with the rectangular-shaped plan and the raised base with the flat-headed window openings

   -         The materials, with the red brick cladding and the brick and stone detailing on the principal (south) elevation

   -         The flat roofline with the minimal cornice on the south end, which wraps around the ends of the east and west side elevations

   -         The principal (south) elevation, which is organized into five bays by brick piers

   -         On the south elevation, the frontispiece in the central bay with the main entrance in the first (ground) floor and the vertical flat-headed window opening above

   -         Adjoining the frontispiece, the flat-headed window openings in the first and second stories with the stone sills, the panelled wood aprons, and the brickwork above the second-storey openings

   -         The east and west side elevations where, in the southernmost bays, the brickwork and coping is extended from the south elevation

Notice of Intention to Designate - 445 Adelaide Street West (John P. Jackson House)

Topic

  • Heritage > Intention to designate a heritage property

Notice Date

2019-12-24

Take notice that Toronto City Council stated its intention to designate the lands and buildings known municipally as 445 Adelaide Street West under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

John P. Jackson House

Reasons for Designation

The property at 445 Adelaide Street West is worthy of designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value, and meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation under all three categories of design, associative and contextual value.

Description

The property at 445 Adelaide Street West is located on the southwest corner of Adelaide and Morrison streets in the King-Spadina neighbourhood.  It contains a detached house form building that was completed in 1880 for realtor John P. Jackson and first occupied by Herbert Hamilton, a veterinary surgeon.  Jackson also owned the adjacent properties to the west where his sister, Eliza Jackson Lennox commissioned the extant row houses (1904) at 447-453 Adelaide Street West.

The property at 445 Adelaide Street West was listed on the City of Toronto's Heritage Register in December 2017.  The King-Spadina HCD Plan (2016) identifies 445 Adelaide Street West as a contributing heritage property.  Council designated the King-Spadina Heritage Conservation District (HCD) under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act in October 2017 by By-law 1111-2017, which was amended by By-law 1241-2017.  In 2019, the HCD was under appeal. 

Statement of Significance

The John P. Jackson House has cultural heritage value for its design as one of the few surviving examples of a detached Toronto Bay-n-Gable house in the King-Spadina neighbourhood, which displays the prototypical bay window beneath a gable with wood detailing and is further distinguished by its pattern brickwork.  It is part of a small collection of extant residential buildings from the 19th and early 20th century in King-Spadina. 

The property at 445 Adelaide Street West is valued historically for its contribution to the understanding of the development, evolution and regeneration of the King-Spadina neighbourhood from its origins as military land that was conveyed to the City of Toronto and stood opposite the municipality’s “West Market” (renamed St. Andrew’s Market and later replaced by St. Andrew's Playground and the adjoining City Waterworks Building).  When the City sold the subject site to realtor John P. Jackson in the late 1800s, it was developed during the residential growth of King-Spadina prior to the area’s transformation to a manufacturing district in the 20th century.  Historically linked to the adjoining group of row houses at 447-453 Adelaide Street West (1904), which were commissioned by Jackson's sister, the John P. Jackson House is an important surviving reminder the late-19th century residential appearance of this area.

Contextually, the property at 445 Adelaide Street West has value through its support for the historical character of the King-Spadina neighbourhood as it was initially developed as a residential and institutional enclave before the transformation of the area as an industrial district after the Great Fire of 1904. The John P. Jackson House is historically, visually and physically related to its surroundings adjoining the southwest corner of Adelaide and Morrison streets, beside the Eliza Lennox Houses (1904) at 447-453 Adelaide Street West and opposite St. Andrew’s Playground.

Heritage Attributes

The heritage attributes of the John P. Jackson House on the property at 445 Adelaide Street West are:

   -         The placement, setback and orientation of the building on the southwest corner of Morrison Street

   -         The scale, form and massing of the 2½-storey building with the rectangular-shaped plan and the raised base with the flat-headed window openings

   -         The materials, with the red brick cladding and the red and buff brick and stone detailing on the principal (north) and east side elevations, including the quoins (most of the brickwork on the north elevation has been painted)

   -         The gable roof with the returned eaves (east) and the gable on the north elevation with the carved wood bargeboard

   -         The principal (north) elevation, which is organized into two bays with the main entrance in the first (ground) storey of the right (west) bay where it is set in a segmental-arched surround with a transom and a brick hood mould

   -         The fenestration on the north elevation, with the single-storey bay window with the segmental-arched openings in the first storey, the pair of segmental-arched openings with the brick hood moulds in the second storey, and the round-arched opening with the brick hood mould in the attic storey (the flat-headed opening in the second storey above the entrance is an alteration following the removal of the two-storey porch that is documented in archival images)

   -         The east (side) elevation with the segmental-arched window openings with the hood moulds in the first, second and attic stories

The west (side) elevation adjoins the neighbouring building at 455 Adelaide Street West.  Viewed from Morrison Street, no heritage attributes are identified on the rear (south) elevation or the south additions.

Notice of an objection to the proposed designations may be served on the City Clerk, Attention:  Ellen Devlin, Administrator, Toronto and East York Community Council, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen Street West, 2nd floor, Toronto, Ontario, M5H 2N2, within thirty days of December 24, 2019, which is January 23, 2020. The notice of objection must set out the reason(s) for the objection, and all relevant facts.

Notice of Intention to Designate - 447-453 Adelaide Street West (Eliza Lennox Houses)

Topic

  • Heritage > Intention to designate a heritage property

Notice Date

2019-12-24

Take notice that Toronto City Council stated its intention to designate the lands and buildings known municipally as 447-453 Adelaide Street West under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Eliza Lennox Houses

Reasons for Designation

The properties at 447-453  Adelaide Street West are worthy of designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value, and meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation under all three categories of design, associative and contextual value.

Description

The properties at 447-453 Adelaide Street West are located on the south side of the street, west of Morrison Street in King-Spadina neighbourhood.  They contain a group of four row houses that were constructed in 1904 for Eliza Jackson Lennox, whose brother, John P. Jackson commissioned the adjoining detached house form building at 445 Adelaide Street West.  By the mid-20th century, commercial uses were introduced to parts of the sites.

The properties at 447-453 Adelaide Street West were listed on the City of Toronto's Heritage Register in December 2017.  The King-Spadina HCD Plan (2016) identifies 445-453 Adelaide Street West as contributing heritage properties.  Council designated the King-Spadina Heritage Conservation District (HCD) under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act in October 2017 by By-law 1111-2017, which was amended by By-law 1241-2017.  In 2019, the HCD was under appeal. 

Statement of Significance

The Eliza Lennox Houses have cultural heritage value for their design as a surviving group of row houses in the King-Spadina neighbourhood that are distinguished from earlier examples in the district with the Edwardian Classical styling.  As a group, the row houses have distinctive detailing with, on the principal (north) elevations, the brick parapet that extends across all four units and incorporates a central segmental-arched pediment and terra cotta panels in the centre and on the ends.

The associative value of the Eliza Lennox Houses at 447-453 Adelaide Street West is through their contribution to an understanding of the development and evolution of the King-Spadina neighbourhood where they occupy former military reserve lands that were granted to the City of Toronto and located opposite the municipality’s West Market site (renamed St. Andrew’s Market and later replaced by St. Andrew’s Playground and the adjoining City Waterworks complex).   Linked historically to the adjoining John P. Jackson House (1880) at 445 Adelaide Street West, which was commissioned by Eliza Lennox's brother, subject properties are part of an important surviving collection of house form buildings in King-Spadina and, with their construction in 1904, reflect the period when the neighbourhood was undergoing a major transformation from a residential and institutional enclave to Toronto’s manufacturing centre.

Contextually, the properties at 447-453 Adelaide Street West have value through their support for the historical character of the King-Spadina neighbourhood as it initially developed as a residential and institutional enclave before the transformation of the area as an industrial district after the Great Fire of 1904.  The Eliza Lennox Houses are historically, visually and physically related to their surroundings adjoining the southwest corner of Adelaide and Morrison streets, beside the John P. Jackson House (1880) at 445 Adelaide Street West and opposite St. Andrew’s Playground.

Heritage Attributes

The heritage attributes of the Eliza Lennox Houses on the properties at 447-453 Adelaide Street West are:

   -         The placement, setback and orientation of the group of row houses on the south side of the street, west of Morrison Street

   -         The scale, form and massing of the group of two-storey buildings with the rectangular-shaped plans

   -         The raised bases with the stone cladding and the segmental-arched window openings with the brick flat arches

   -         The materials, with the red brick cladding and, on the principal north elevations of the group of row houses, the brick, stone and terra cotta detailing

   -         The flat roofs and, across the north elevations of the group of row houses, the continuous stepped parapet with the stone coping that incorporates the central segmental-arched pediment and, in the centre and on the ends, the terra cotta panels

   -         The principal (north) elevations of the group of row houses, where the units at 447-449 and 451-453 are designed as mirror images with the raised entrances placed side-by-side in the first (ground) floor in segmental-arched surrounds with brick detailing and panelled wood doors with glass inserts

   -         On the north elevations of the group of row houses, the fenestration with the segmental-arched openings with the brick flat arches and stone sills, with the individual openings placed beside the entrance in the first (ground) storey of each building and in pairs in the second storey

The east (side) elevation of 447 Adelaide Street West adjoins the neighbouring building at 445 Adelaide Street West.  The west (side) elevation of 453 Adelaide Street West, which is partially concealed by the adjoining building, is devoid of openings.  No heritage attributes are identified on the south (rear) elevations or additions.

Notice of an objection to the proposed designations may be served on the City Clerk, Attention:  Ellen Devlin, Administrator, Toronto and East York Community Council, Toronto City Hall, 100 Queen Street West, 2nd floor, Toronto, Ontario, M5H 2N2, within thirty days of December 24, 2019, which is January 23, 2020.
