Notice of Intention to Designate - 206 Russell Hill Road

Topic

  • Heritage > Intention to designate a heritage property

Notice Date

2019-06-21

Take notice that Toronto City Council stated its intention to designate the lands and buildings known municipally as 206 Russell Hill Road under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

206 RUSSELL HILL ROAD

Reasons for Designation

The property at 206 Russell Hill Road is worthy of inclusion on the City of Toronto's Heritage Register and 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

Located on the west side of the street, south of St. Clair Avenue West in the South Hill neighbourhood, the property at 206 Russell Hill Road is elevated on a hillside where the lot extends west to Sir Winston Churchill Park.  It contains a 2½-storey detached house form building that was constructed in 1910 for William Sefton Hodgens (1878-1963) according to the designs of Toronto architect Ewart G. Wilson.  Hodgens was a self-made financier and one of the original directors of the Dominion Securities Corporation (forerunner to today’s RBC Securities) who resided at 206 Russell Hill with his wife, Margaret Wood Meikle for over half a century.  Following Hodgens’s death, the Basilian Fathers of Toronto were among the subsequent owners of the property. 

Statement of Significance

The property at 206 Russell Hill Road is valued for its design as a well-crafted example of the Period Revival, one of the most popular styles for upscale residential architecture in the World War I era, which is particularly distinguished by its detailing inspired by the Arts and Crafts Movement.  The William S. Hodgens House displays hallmarks of the style in its varied cladding, the intricate profile incorporating the roof with the gambrel form, extended east slope, parapets and multiple chimneys, and the varied fenestration including bay windows and shed-roof dormers.     

The William S. Hodgens House is historically associated with the origins of the South Hill neighbourhood where, following the subdivision of the former Russell Hill estate, it occupied one of the larger tracts adjoining the Nordheimer Ravine.  It is also linked to the practice of Ewart G. Wilson who, in a career spanning a quarter-century, was noted for his residential commissions in Rosedale, Forest Hill and other prestigious neighbourhoods, and elegant apartment houses, including the Broadview Mansions (1927), the listed heritage property overlooking Riverdale Park.

Contextually, the William S. Hodgens House supports and maintains the historical character of the South Hill community as an early-20th century residential enclave with recognized heritage buildings on Clarendon Avenue, Clarendon Crescent, Warren Road, Balmoral Avenue and Poplar Plains Road, as well as Russell Hill Road.   The property at 206 Russell Hill Road is also historically, visually and physically linked to its location on an elevated site adjoining Sir Winston Churchill Park.

Heritage Attributes

The heritage attributes of the William S. Hodgens House at 206 Russell Hill Road are:

      -     The setback, placement and orientation of the building on the west side of the street, south of St. Clair Avenue West and adjoining Sir Winston Churchill Park

     -     The scale, form and massing of the 2½-storey plan

     -     The roof with the gambrel form, extended slope and multiple shed-roof dormers (east), the parapets (east and west) and the four brick chimneys, including the oversized chimney on the east end

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

     -     The principal (east) elevation, where the main entrance is placed off-centre in the first (ground) floor and protected by the open gable on brackets and the stepped stone wall

     -     The north side elevation with the secondary entrance and the wood detailing

     -     On all elevations, the fenestration that incorporates flat-headed openings with stone lintels or wood surrounds, segmental-arched openings with brick flat arches and stone sills, and bay windows with wood detailing (some of the openings have been altered)

     -     In many of the openings, the multi-paned windows that reflect the Period Revival styling

The detached garage at the north end of the property is not identified as a heritage attribute.

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 June 21, 2019, which is July 22, 2019.

Notice Date

2019-05-17

Notice is given that the Chief Building Official and Executive Director, Toronto Building, is reporting on a proposed amendment to Municipal Code Chapter 694, Signs, General (the "Sign By-law"), to amend the Sign By-law to allow for, and regulate, the display of one third party electronic ground sign at the premises municipally known as 2378-2410 Eglinton Avenue East. 

The proposed amendment seeks to add an area-specific amendment to the Sign By-law for the premises municipally known as 2378-2410 Eglinton Avenue East to replace the existing regulations for third party signs allowed on the premises, with regulations that would allow and regulate the following third party sign:

-   One third party electronic ground sign containing two sign faces, with one sign face displaying electronic static copy in an easterly direction and one sign face displaying static copy in a westerly direction, each measuring 6.1 metres horizontally by 3.05 metres vertically, with a total sign face area of 18.6 square metres for each sign face; and, a height (highest point of the sign measured from grade) of 10.0 metres.

The proposed amendment would also modify the permitting regime for 2378-2410 Eglinton Avenue East by including an additional requirement that two existing third party ground signs located at 2378-2410 Eglinton Avenue East, be removed prior to a sign permit being issued for third party signs on the premises, and that applicable sign permit regulations would be also modified by extending the initial permit term from five to ten years.

The Chief Building Official and Executive Director, Toronto Building, is recommending that the Council of the City of Toronto refuse to add the area-specific amendment to the Sign By-law for 2378-2410 Eglinton Avenue East.

The Planning and Housing Committee may recommend that the Council of the City of Toronto amend the Sign By-law, to amend Schedule B, Signage Master Plans and Area Specific Amendments, to add a new area specific amendment to Schedule B, Signage Master Plans and Area Specific Amendments, to allow 2378-2410 Eglinton Avenue East to contain, in addition to the signs otherwise permitted, the third party electronic ground sign.

At its meeting to be held in Toronto City Hall, Committee Room 1, on May 28, 2019 commencing at 10:30 a.m., or as soon as possible thereafter, the Planning and Housing Committee of Toronto City Council will hear in person or by his or her counsel, agent or solicitor, any person who wishes to speak to the matter.
