Notice Date

2019-12-09

Take notice that Toronto City Council intends to designate the lands and building known municipally as 586 Yonge Street under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

REASONS FOR DESIGNATION

The property at 586 Yonge 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

Located on the west side of Yonge Street between Wellesley Street West and St. Joseph Street, the property at 586 Yonge Street contains a two-and-a-half-storey, mixed-use commercial building constructed in the Second Empire style by Thomas McLean for his carriage making-business and residence in 1875-6. Within a year of the establishment of the City's Heritage Inventory, the property (including 7 St. Nicholas Street) was included in 1974 and has been identified as contributing to the Historic Yonge Heritage Conservation District (HCD) which was approved for designation under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act by City Council in 2016 and is currently under appeal.

Statement of Cultural Heritage Value

The Thomas McLean Carriage Maker building is valued as a representative of a 1870s main street commercial row building type comprising a shop at the ground floor with residential accommodation above in the Second Empire Style that was popular in Toronto during this decade. The defining elements of the type remain in the glazed shop-front at grade with a separate entry to the upper levels whose elevations featuring a row of three identical rectangular windows with a mansard roof above with two dormer windows. The Second Empire style elements are present in the bell-cast curve of the mansard roof and in the details of the dormers with their semi-circular curved roofs with richly carved mouldings, and scroll brackets around semi-circular headed window openings.

The property is valued for its association with Thomas McLean and his carriage making business as it represents the mid-late 19th century period in the history of Toronto when goods were still being manufactured in shops on a main street. The property also yields an understanding of the evolution of historic Yonge Street as it represents the period when the street consolidated as a commercial street with a row of shops with residential accommodation above, becoming a "main street" with a continuous street wall.

Located on the west side of Yonge Street between Wellesley Street West and St. Joseph Street, the property at 586 Yonge Street has contextual value as it presents the two-and-a-half story scale, massing and Second Empire details of an 1870s building maintaining and supporting the historic late 19th century character of Yonge Street as it evolved into a commercial main street. Adjacent to other 1870s commercial buildings along with later 19th and early 20th-century buildings, the property is historically and visually linked to its surroundings and contributes to the cultural heritage value of the Historic Yonge HCD.

Heritage Attributes

The heritage attributes of the Thomas McLean building at 586 Yonge Street are:

   -         The setback, placement and orientation of the building on its property on the west side of Yonge Street between Wellesley Street West and St. Joseph Street

   -         The setting of the building at the edge of the public sidewalk

   -         The scale, form and massing of the two-and-a-half storey block, its rectangular plan and mansard roof with two dormer windows facing Yonge Street and brick fire walls

   -         The wood material in the dormer windows and surrounding details

   -         The Second Empire details evident in the semi-circular roofs of the dormer windows, with their elaborate mouldings and scroll brackets and elaborate moulding on the edge of the dormer roofs and the two pairs of scroll brackets at the edges of the elevation, supporting the eaves of the mansard at the second floor

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 December 9, 2019, which is January 8, 2020.

Located on the north side of Wellesley Street West between Yonge Street and St. Nicholas Street, the properties at 10-16 Wellesley Street West contain four, two-and-a-half-storey row houses, constructed by Thomas Bryce in 1876 of frame construction with brick cladding on their principal south elevations. The row houses were constructed in the same year that Bryce built the commercial row at the north-west corner of Wellesley Street West and Yonge Street (the remaining buildings are at 570, 572, 576, 582, 584 Yonge Street) and share many similar features including red and yellow brick cladding, mansard roofs with dormers and identical keystones in the curved window heads.

The Thomas Bryce row houses constructed at 10-16 Wellesley Street West have design and physical value as representative examples of 1870s row houses integrating the Second Empire Style with the emerging Toronto Bay-n-Gable urban housing typology. The defining elements are present in the two-and-a-half storey height and massing which includes bay windows and mansard roofs with dormer windows. The narrow lots and interior plans are indicated by the principal entry located to one side of the main elevation adjacent to the bay window. Archival photographs indicate that beneath the current stucco-like over-cladding, the original red and yellow patterned brick, characteristic of Toronto's mid-nineteenth century architecture, remains.

The property is valued for its historical association with the late 19th-century development of the Yonge Street as it emerged as an urban commercial and residential neighbourhood which has been identified within the Historic Yonge HCD. The properties contribute to an understanding of the social history of Yonge Street with the integration of residential and commercial building types within a block. It is also valued as it reflects the work of the prolific Toronto builder, Thomas Bryce (1843-1905).

They are particularly linked to the commercial row constructed in the same year by Thomas Bryce at the north-west corner of Yonge and Wellesley Street West featuring many shared architectural characteristics including mansard roofs with dormers, and red and yellow brick patterning. These properties are historically and visually linked to their surroundings especially the block north of Wellesley, bound by St. Joseph, Yonge and St. Nicholas streets.

Heritage Attributes

The heritage attributes of the Thomas Bryce row houses at 10, 12, 14 and 16 Wellesley Street West are:

Notice of Intention to Designate - 167 Queen Street East

Topic

  • Heritage > Intention to designate a heritage property

Notice Date

2019-12-02

Take notice that Toronto City Council stated its intention to designate the lands and buildings known municipally as 167 Queen Street East (including entrance address at 169 Queen Street East) under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Reasons for Designation

The property at 167 Queen Street East (including the entrance address at 169 Queen Street East and representing two of ten properties in the Thomas J. Wilkie block), 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

Located at the south-east corner of Queen Street East and George Street, the property at 167 Queen Street East (including the entry address at 169 Queen Street East) represents two of the original ten properties in the ten-unit block known as 167-185 Queen Street East constructed in 1886-7 for Thomas J. Wilkie.  The three-storey brick-clad block contained commercial space at the ground floor level and residential accommodation above.

The property is located in the King- Parliament Secondary Plan Area and was one of the properties identified as having heritage potential in the King-Parliament Secondary Plan Review – Proposed Secondary Plan which was adopted without amendment by the Toronto and East York Council on October 10, 2019 and by City Council on October 29, 2019. 

Statement of Cultural Heritage Value

The Thomas J. Wilkie block is representative of a late-19th century commercial and residential block in the High Victorian style with elements of the Richardsonian Romanesque style.  The High Victorian style is chiefly characterized by variety and richness of detail and is evident in the plan of the building with its differently sized shop units, in the massing which originally included a corner tower and in the combination of materials, window types and the sculptural relief of surfaces seen in the brick relief moulding, wood shopfronts and cornices, pierced wood headers - all of which indicate a high degree of originality and craftsmanship.  The Richardsonian Romanesque elements are present in the original corner tower elements, especially in the large arched openings.

The Wilkie block has historic value for its association with Thomas J. Wilkie (d.1916) who is renowned for his leadership of YMCA in Toronto and ultimately throughout the United States and Canada, and who, with his brother John N. Wilkie, contributed to the development of Long Branch as a summer resort which has since become a vibrant lake-front community. 

The Wilkie block is valued as it represents the late-19th century community which developed around this section of Queen Street, as an urban townscape combining industrial, commercial and residential functions, lining one of the city's major cross-routes. It is valued for its historic association with Queen Street, the original boundary between the Town of York and the Park Lots estates to the north, with George Street, one of the original streets of the ten-block Town of York established in 1793, and for its association with the history and development of the King-Parliament neighbourhood in the late 19th century.

Contextually, this three-storey, High Victorian, brick commercial block maintains the scale, form and massing, materiality and patterns of use of this section of Queen Street East, particularly between Mutual Street and Seaton Street. Located on the north edge of the King-Parliament Secondary Plan Area which contains the historic 1793 Town of York, it supports the character of the area as it represents the late 19th century development of the neighbourhood with commercial, residential and industrial buildings and consistent urban street walls.  Situated at the south-east intersection of Queen Street, (originally known as Lot Street), which separated the town to the south from park lot estates to the north, and George Street which was the western boundary of the original Town, the properties are physically, visually and historically linked to their surroundings.  

Heritage Attributes

The heritage attributes of the property at 167 Queen Street East (including the entry address at 169 Queen Street East) are:

   -         The setback, placement and orientation of the mixed-use commercial block at the south-east corner of Queen Street East and George Street

   -         The scale, form and massing of the three-storey building

   -         The materials including the brick, stone and precast stone elements and wood

   -         Above the shop front, on the north and west elevations, the wood cornice and entablature with its dentil course and moulded corner element above the column and the projecting metal cornice

   -         The window openings on both the north and west elevations which are flat-headed supporting stone lintels  flanked by brick pilasters or arched with pre-cast keystones and stone imposts

   -         The brick moulding and decorative elements seen in the pilasters, corbelling, string courses at the tops of pilasters and over arched window heads on both the north and west elevation

   -         Brick and stone belt courses

   -         The cornice at the top of the building

The rear cement block addition is not included in the 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 December 2, 2019, which is January 2, 2020. The notice of objection must set out the reason(s) for the objection, and all relevant facts.
