Request for Direction - 266-270 King Street West and 274-322 King Street West - Zoning Amendment Application
Origin
(November 8, 2013) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor, together with City Planning staff and any other appropriate staff, to oppose the applicant’s appeal respecting the Zoning By-law Amendment application for 266-270 and 274-322 King Street West and attend the Ontario Municipal Board hearing in opposition to such appeal, and retain such experts as the City Solicitor may determine are appropriate in support of the position recommended in the report dated November 4, 2013 from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District.

 

2.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor to also advise the OMB that City Council’s position is that any redevelopment of the sites, if approved by the OMB, should secure such services, facilities or matters pursuant to Section 37 of the Planning Act, as may be recommended by the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning Division, in consultation with the Ward Councillor.

 

3.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor and other City staff to take any necessary steps to implement the foregoing.

Summary

On June 18, 2013 the applicant appealed the Zoning By-law Amendment application for 266-270 and 274-322 King Street West to the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) due to City Council’s failure to make a decision within the time period prescribed by the Planning Act.  A pre-hearing conference has been scheduled for January 6, 2014. 

 

The application has not been formally modified since its submission on November 9, 2012.  Much of the background and detailed information in this report is identical to the Preliminary Report considered by the Toronto and East York Community Council on February 26, 2013, which can be viewed through the item link at:

 

http://app.toronto.ca/tmmis/viewAgendaItemHistory.do?item=2013.TE22.41

 

The application proposes to redevelop two separate parcels, municipally known as 266-270 King Street West (east parcel) and 274-322 King Street West (west parcel) with a mixed use development on each.

 

The East Parcel would be developed with an 82-storey mixed use building complete

with a six-storey base.  The West Parcel would be developed with two tower elements having total heights of 84 and 86 storeys from John Street to Ed Mirvish Way respectively, atop a six-storey base.

 

A total of approximately 22,220 m2 of non-residential gross floor area, 2,709 dwelling units and 311 parking spaces are proposed.

 

The development as proposed would result in the complete demolition of four (4) properties designated under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act.

 

This application does not represent an appropriate redevelopment of these sites and does not conform to the goals and objectives of the Official Plan.  The proposed density; tower height(s), base building height; tower floorplate ranges and tower separation distances result in a built form that is out of scale with the existing and planned context of the area.  Further, the loss of four heritage designated building, with the lack of heritage conservation also does not represent an appropriate form of redevelopment or good planning.

 

The purpose of this report is to seek Council’s direction on the appeal of these applications to the OMB.  Staff has offered to work with the applicant towards a more appropriate proposal which addresses the major issues of scale and heritage.  In the absence of any revisions, it is staff's opinion that the proposed development is inappropriate and constitutes an over-intensification of these sites.

Financial Impact

There are no financial implications resulting from the adoption of this report.

Demolition of Four Designated Heritage Properties - 266, 276, 284 and 322 King Street West
Origin
(October 22, 2013) Report from the Acting Director, Urban Design, City Planning Division
Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.         City Council refuse the proposed demolition of the designated heritage properties at 266, 276, 284 and 322 King Street West under Section 34 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

 

2.         If the owner appeals City Council's decision to refuse the application for demolition under Section 34 of the Ontario Heritage Act, City Council authorize the City Solicitor and appropriate City staff to attend any hearing held by the Ontario Municipal Board in support of the Council position opposing such appeal.

Summary

This report recommends that City Council refuse the proposed demolition of four designated heritage properties at 266, 276, 284 and 322 King Street West as part of Zoning By-law amendment application 12 276890 STE 20 OZ. 

 

The development application, which has been appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board for non-decision within required timeframes, proposes to redevelop two separate parcels, municipally known as 266-270 King Street West (east parcel) and 274-322 King Street West (west parcel) for the purpose of a mixed use development on each. A report from the Director, Community Planning will be considered at the November 19, 2013 meeting of Toronto and East York Community Council.

 

The East Parcel would be developed with an 82-storey mixed use building complete with a six storey base. The West Parcel would be developed with two tower elements having total heights of 84 and 86 storeys from John Street to Ed Mirvish Way respectively, including a six-storey base.

 

The proposed demolition of four designated buildings does not satisfy the requirements of the Planning Act, the associated Provincial Policy Statement and the City's Official Plan Heritage Policies. It also does not comply with the Standards and Guidelines for the Conservation of Historic Place in Canada, which was adopted by City Council.

Financial Impact

There are no financial implications resulting from adoption of this report.

Final Report - Ossington Avenue Between Queen Street West and Dundas Street West - City-Initiated Official Plan Amendment
Statutory - Planning Act, RSO 1990
Origin
(October 31, 2013) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.         City Council amend the Official Plan, for the properties on Ossington Avenue between Queen Street West and Dundas Street West, substantially in accordance with the proposed Official Plan Amendment attached as Attachment No. 4 to report (October 31, 2013) from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District.

 

2.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor to make such stylistic and technical changes to the draft Official Plan Amendment as may be required.

Summary

This is a City-initiated Official Plan Amendment to create an area-specific Official Plan policy for Ossington Avenue, between Queen Street West and Dundas Street West.  The proposed policy is based on the findings and recommendations of the Ossington Avenue Planning Study that was brought forward to Toronto and East York Community Council at the meeting held on October 17, 2013. 

 

In summary, the proposed policy reinforces the existing permissions while providing more emphasis on streetscape, heritage, character of the street, and transition to adjacent residential uses.  While this report recommends a four-storey height limit for the majority of the street, it also identifies opportunity for height up to five storeys on a section of the east side of Ossington Avenue.

 

This report reviews and recommends approval of a City-initiated Official Plan Amendment to create an area-specific Official Plan policy (see Attachment 4).

(November 4, 2013) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.         City Council adopt the Study, entitled "Besides the Tracks: Knitting the Rail Corridor Back to the Community", attached at Attachment 1 to the report (November 4, 2013) from the Director, Community Planning Toronto and East York District.

 

2.         City Council direct City Staff to use this framework to review development applications as well as infrastructure investment in the long-term for the lands within the Study Area.

 

3.         City Council request the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District, in consultation with appropriate City Divisions to report back in the first quarter of 2014 on an implementation strategy, including quick hits to move forward with elements of the "Besides the Tracks" Study.

Summary

In March 2011, Toronto and East York Community Council requested City Planning to conduct a review of lands abutting the CN railway, which form the western boundary of Ward 18. The Study did not look at land use as this was being considered through the Municipal Comprehensive Review, but focused on opportunities to improve this area and better connect it to the surrounding neighbourhood. The result will help the City to proactively respond to any development proposals in the area and plan for the long-term investment and revitalization of these lands. The Study responds to a unique combination of factors including relatively large industrial sites lacking local infrastructure immediately bounded by stable neighbourhoods. In addition, the area is under increasing development pressures. 

 

City staff, the Ward Councillor and members of the community have worked together to develop a vision for new development and direct infrastructure investment within the Study Area. In addition, an inter-divisional staff team worked on the project and were involved in developing the recommendations. The Study outlines short-term and long-term recommendations pertaining to parks, the transportation network (including new roads, bikeways, parking and walkways), heritage buildings, urban design and community services and facilities.

Financial Impact

The recommendations in this report have no financial impact.

Request for Directions Report - 2131 Yonge Street and 32 Hillsdale Avenue East - Official Plan Amendment and Zoning Amendment Applications
Origin
(October 31, 2013) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.         City Council refuse application 13 105888 STE 22 OZ for Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendment at 2131 Yonge Street and 32 Hillsdale Avenue East for the following reasons:

 

            a.         the site is not within the Yonge-Eglinton Urban Growth Centre;    

 

b.         the proposal is not consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement, does not conform to the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe and is not consistent with the Official Plan;

 

c.         the proposal is inconsistent with the Council-approved  Tall Buildings Design Guidelines; and

 

            d.         the proposal represents an over-development of the site.

 

2.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor together with City Planning and other appropriate staff to appear before the Ontario Municipal Board in support of City Council's decision to refuse the application.

 

3.         City Council authorize City Planning in consultation with the Ward Councillor to secure services, facilities or matters pursuant to Section 37 of the Planning Act as may be required by the Chief Planner should the proposal be approved in some form by the Ontario Municipal Board.

Summary

This application proposes to redevelop the subject site at 2131 Yonge Street and 32 Hillsdale Avenue.  The current use, a large retail store (The Art Shoppe), is to be demolished.

 

The proposed mixed commercial-residential redevelopment consists of a 38-storey (123.85 metres) north tower and a 29-storey (98.70 metres) south tower (excluding mechanical penthouses).  The height in storeys of both towers includes a common 6-storey base. The north tower includes a proposed restaurant on the 38th floor.

 

A total of 693 residential units are proposed and 497 parking spaces plus 3 car-share spaces are provided in an underground garage.  The total proposed gross floor area is approximately 9.0 times the lot area.  The lot includes the parkette on Hillsdale Avenue East which is owned by the applicant and leased to the City.

 

The base consists of retail uses on floors 1 and 2, residential units on floors 3 to 5 and a residential amenity level on the 6th floor.

 

The applicant has appealed to the Ontario Municipal Board prior to Council making a decision on their request for Official Plan and zoning amendments.  This report reviews and recommends refusal of the application to amend the Official Plan and Zoning By-law.

 

The proposed development on a site outside of the Yonge-Eglinton Urban Growth Centre (UGC) is not consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement and neither does it conform to the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe or the Official Plan. 

 

The proposed massing and tower heights of 38 storeys (124 metres) and 29 storeys (99 metres) on a lot abutting a Neighbourhoods designated area does not fit its built or planned context.  The proposal does not comply with the policies of the Official Plan, including Section 4.5 which requires transition between areas of different intensity and scale (by stepping down in height among other methods), particularly towards lower scale Neighbourhoods.

Financial Impact

The recommendations in this report have no financial impact.

Inclusion on the City of Toronto Inventory of Heritage Properties - 33 Avenue Road

Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.         City Council include the property at 33 Avenue Road (York Square) on the City of Toronto Inventory of Heritage Properties.

Summary

This report recommends that City Council include the property at 33 Avenue Road on the City of Toronto Inventory of Heritage Properties for its cultural heritage value.  Located on the north east corner of Avenue Road and Yorkville Avenue, the property contains the building historically known as York Square (1968-9). 

 

A nomination for the property to be included on the City's Inventory of Heritage Property was received in 2012.  The local councillor in Ward 27 expressed interest in having the property evaluated for inclusion.  Following research and evaluation, staff  have determined that the property at 33 Avenue Road meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation that is also used by the City when assessing properties for the City of Toronto Inventory of Heritage Properties.  A nomination for 55 Avenue Road (Hazelton Lanes) was also received by staff.  In the evaluation of 33 Avenue Road, 55 Avenue Road was also assessed and was deemed not to merit a formal evaluation report.

Financial Impact

There are no financial implications resulting from the adoption of this report.

Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that

 

1.         City Council state its intention to designate the property at 14 Blevins Place (Dickinson Tower, Regent Park South) under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

 

2.         If there are no objections to the designation in accordance with Section 29(6) of the Ontario Heritage Act, City Council authorize the City Solicitor to introduce the bills in Council designating the property under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

4.         If the designation is referred to the Conservation Review Board, City Council authorize the City Solicitor and appropriate staff to attend any hearing held by the Conservation Review Board in support of Council's decision on the designation of the property.

Summary

This report recommends that City Council state its intention to designate the property at 14 Blevins Place (Dickinson Tower, Regent Park South) under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.  Located northwest of River and Shuter Streets in Regent Park South, the Dickinson Tower (1958) is the last remaining structure from the development of the planned community as it developed in the 1950s and was listed on the City of Toronto Inventory of Heritage Properties in 2005.

 

At its meeting of May 14, 2013, the Toronto and East York Community Council adopted with amendments TE24.42, entitled "325 Gerrard Street East - Regent Park - Official Plan Amendment, Zoning Amendment Application - Preliminary Report", outlining the applications made by the Toronto Community Housing Corporation to amend the previous development permissions for the Regent Park revitalization area.  As part of the applications, the heritage property at 14 Blevins Place is proposed for demolition.

 

In order to preserve the cultural heritage values and attributes of the Dickinson Tower at 14 Blevins Place and refuse the demolition of the building, City Council must state its intention to designate the property under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Financial Impact

There are no financial implications resulting from the adoption of this report.

Central Waterfront Secondary Plan, East Bayfront and North Keating Appeals
Origin
(October 24, 2013) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Summary

The City of Toronto passed the Central Waterfront Secondary Plan in April 2003 and subsequently zoning by-laws for the East Bayfront (By-law No. 1049-2006) and North Keating (By-law No. 1174-2010).  Within these two precincts there are a total of 6 private land owner appellants to the Central Waterfront Secondary Plan and area specific By-laws.  After several years of discussions and several pre-hearing conferences, the Ontario Municipal Board (OMB) has set aside 12 weeks of time for hearings on these appeals starting on March 31, 2014.  City and Waterfront Toronto representatives have initiated negotiations with the appellants to find mutually acceptable solutions for both the appellants and the City.  It is hoped that through this process, solutions will be found that will be considered to be fair and transparent and meet the intent of the Central Waterfront Secondary Plan and the Precinct Plans.

 

The negotiation process is exceptionally labour intensive to prepare material for settlement review and to hold discussions with the appellants.  These discussions commenced in earnest in September and are expected to continue until at least the end of December 2013.  If negotiations have progressed sufficiently, a public meeting will be held in early 2014 to present the findings of this process to the public and other parties having an interest in the appeal process and to secure support for the outcomes of the negotiations.  A Directions Report will be prepared early in 2014 following the public meeting.  The Directions Report would seek Council authority to advise the OMB of the City’s position on the necessary changes to the Central Waterfront Secondary Plan and area zoning by-laws necessary to conclude any settlements of these site specific appeals.  The Directions Report is expected to provide Council with confidential details pertaining to the ongoing discussions and to request support for the resolution of this process based on the matters currently being discussed with the appellants.

Financial Impact

There are no financial implications.

Status Update Report - King-Spadina East Precinct Built Form Study
Origin
(November 4, 2013) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District
Recommendations

The City Planning Divisions recommends that:

 

1.         City Council receive for information the report (November 4, 2013) from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District, entitled "King-Spadina East Precinct Built Form Study - Status Update Report".

Summary

This report outlines the King-Spadina East Precinct Built Form Study preliminary findings and potential directions. The East Precinct is a Regeneration Area bounded by Front Street West to the south, Richmond Street West to the north, Simcoe and John Streets to the east, and Spadina Avenue to the west.  Major Secondary Plan policy objectives aim to encourage reinvestment in the area for a diverse range of employment and residential uses while preserving and reinforcing the historic scale and character of the area and enhancing the public realm.

 

With over 30 applications at various stages of review, the East Precinct has a high concentration of tall building proposals. These developments are creating a tower neighbourhood east of Spadina which was not contemplated by the in-force Plan.

 

The King-Spadina Plan was created to maintain and enhance the distinct warehouse and heritage character of the area while at the same time attracting investment by opening up land use permissions.  This plan has been largely successful in repurposing medium scale warehouse buildings and using that unique character to support the branding and visual amenity of the area.  The result has been the preservation of many heritage buildings and one of the largest concentrations of creative industries in the City.

 

However, as with some other areas of the City, this area has evolved and has now effectively become a tower neighbourhood.  The Built Form review of the area seeks to re-imagine the King-Spadina East Precinct in a way that accommodates tower forms while incorporating the character of the area that distinguishes this part of the City.  To do this, preliminary directions are to:

 

-           reinforce and maintain the special heritage character of the area;

 

-           permit tall buildings within the precinct which comply with the City's tall building guidelines (subject to the results of the on-going Heritage Conservation District Study);

 

-           update the public realm plan for the area to guide and secure higher quality sidewalks, public spaces and connections throughout the area;

 

-           complete a parks, recreation and community services study to identify services to be provided in tandem with growth;

 

-           assess hard services, transit, water, sewer and transportation for upgrades; and

 

-           achieve a balanced mix of entertainment, employment and residential uses.

 

The Built Form Study will refocus the policies for King-Spadina East Precinct to manage new towers, create an infrastructure plan and define the overall capacity of the area to absorb growth while maintaining a high quality of life for residents, employees and visitors. This will be accompanied by clear direction to enhance the quality of the public realm and character of the neighbourhood through carefully planned and managed intensification.

Financial Impact

There are no financial implications.

Recommendations

Transportation Services recommends that Toronto and East York Community Council:

 

1.         Approve the closure of the west sidewalk and part of the west curb lane on Rusholme Road, between College Street and a point 42 metres north, from December 1, 2013 to March 31, 2015.

 

2.         Approve the implementation of a "No Stopping Anytime" regulation on both sides of Rusholme Road, between College Street and a point 53 metres north, from December 1, 2013 to March 31, 2015.

 

3.         Adjust the existing "No Parking Anytime" regulation on the west side of Rusholme Road, between Bloor Street West and College Street, to be in effect from Bloor Street West to a point 53 metres north of College Street, from December 1, 2013 to March 31, 2015.

 

4.         Adjust the existing "Permit Parking" regulation on the odd side of Rusholme Road, between Bloor Street West and College Street, to be in effect from Bloor Street West to a point 53 metres north of College Street, from December 1, 2013 to March 31, 2015.

 

5.         Direct that Rusholme Road be returned to its pre-construction traffic and parking regulations when the project is complete.

Summary

This staff report is about a matter for which Toronto and East York Community Council has delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision.

 

Transportation Services is requesting authority to close the west sidewalk and part of the west curb lane on Rusholme Road.  59 Project Management is constructing a seven-storey condominium at No. 998 College Street.  This project requires a temporary sidewalk and lane closure on Rusholme Road for a period of 16 months to enable construction to proceed. 

 

As a result, Rusholme Road will be 3.5 metres wide in the vicinity of the staging area, which is sufficient for one-way traffic operation.  Pedestrians will be diverted to the east side of the road.  Stopping will be prohibited on both sides of the road in the vicinity of the staging area.  This will result in the loss of seven permit parking spaces.  On this section of Rusholme Road there are 39 parking spaces and 30 permits issued.

Financial Impact

There is no financial impact on the City.  59 Project Management is responsible for all costs, including payment of fees to the City for the occupancy of the right-of-way.  Based on the area enclosed and projected duration of the closure, these fees will be approximately $39,000.00.

Mizrahi Development Group Incorporated is constructing a 12-storey condominium at No. 181 Davenport Road.  This project requires the above closures for a period of 24 months to enable construction to proceed. 

 

The proposed staging area will be an addition to the existing staging area at No. 195 Davenport Road, which is scheduled to be complete on November 30, 2014.  No. 195 Davenport Road is being constructed by Laughlin Solutions Incorporated, which is associated with Mizrahi Development Group Incorporated, thereby allowing the staging areas to be co-ordinated.

Financial Impact

There is no financial impact on the City.  Mizrahi Development Group Incorporated is responsible for all costs, including payment of fees to the City for the occupancy of the right-of-way.  Based on the area enclosed and projected duration of the closure, these fees will be approximately $36,000.00.

Transportation Services recommends that the Toronto and East York Community Council:

 

1.         Adopt the regulations outlined in Appendix A, attached to the November 5, 2013 report entitled "Traffic Management Plan - Junction Triangle Area (Delegated Items)", from the Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District.

Summary

This staff report is about a matter for which Toronto and East York Community Council has delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision.

 

Transportation Services is responding to a request from Councillor Ana Bailão to report on a number of requests in the Junction Triangle Area.  The area is bounded by Bloor Street West to the south, Lansdowne Avenue to the east, and the CN tracks to the north and west.  The residents have numerous traffic concerns, including vehicle speeds and volumes, parking activity, turn prohibitions and signal timings.

 

The proposals in the Junction Triangle Area that are not delegated items will be addressed in a separate report to Toronto and East York Community Council entitled "Traffic Management Plan - Junction Triangle Area (Non-delegated Items)".

Financial Impact

The adoption of the recommendations in Appendix A in the estimated amount of $1,000.00 is available within the Transportation Services 2013 Operating Budget.

 

The adoption of the recommendations in Appendix B will not result in any financial impacts.  If, however, Toronto and East York Community Council decides that the amendments to the existing traffic regulations would be beneficial, the following financial impacts will result:

 

1.         The estimated cost for designating a street to operate one-way would be $500.00 per street.  Funds to undertake the necessary signage adjustments are contained within Transportation Services 2013 Operating Budget.

 

2.         The estimated cost for installing a speed hump would be $3,000.00 per hump. Funds have been allocated in the Transportation Services 2013 Capital Budget for traffic calming initiatives. Installing speed humps would be subject to competing priorities and funding availability.

 

3.         The estimated cost for installing all-way "Stop" sign control would be $1,000.00 per intersection.  Funds to undertake the necessary signage adjustments are contained within Transportation Services 2013 Operating Budget.

 

4.         The estimated cost for amending the parking regulations would be $500.00 per street.  Funds to undertake the necessary signage adjustments are contained within Transportation Services 2013 Operating Budget.

2.         City Council not approve a left-turn prohibition for eastbound Bloor Street West at Perth Avenue operating from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., daily.

 

3.         City Council not approve a left turn prohibition for westbound Dupont Street at Campbell Avenue operating Monday to Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., Monday to Friday.

Summary

Transportation Services is requesting City Council receive this report for informational purposes only.

 

Transportation Services is responding to a request from Councillor Ana Bailão to report on a number of requests in the Junction Triangle Area.  The area is bounded by Bloor Street West to the south, Lansdowne Avenue to the east, and the CN tracks to the north and west.  The residents have numerous traffic concerns, including vehicle speeds and volumes, parking activity, turn prohibitions and signal timings.

 

The proposals in the Junction Triangle Area that are delegated items will be addressed in a separate report to Toronto and East York Community Council, entitled "Traffic Management Plan - Junction Triangle Area (Delegated Items)".

Financial Impact

The adoption of staff recommendations will not result in any financial impacts.  If, however, Toronto City Council decides that the amendments to the existing traffic regulations would be beneficial, the following financial impacts will result:

 

1.         Should Community Council decide that a pedestrian crossover should be installed at Symington Avenue and Paton Street/Ernest Avenue, the estimated cost would be $30,000.00 and it would be funded from the Transportation Services Capital Program, subject to competing priorities.  The added annual operation and maintenance costs of $4,000.00 associated with this installation would be funded by the annual Transportation Services Operating Budget.

 

2.         The estimated cost for installing a left-turn prohibition would be $500.00 per location. Funds to undertake the necessary signage adjustments are contained within Transportation Services 2013 Operating Budget.

1.         Approve the installation of a pedestrian crossover on Beverley Street immediately north of Cecil Street.

Summary

This staff report is about a matter for which Toronto and East York Community Council has delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision.

Pedestrian-Cyclist Refuge Island - Bathurst Street at the Beltline Trail Crossing

Recommendations

Transportation Services recommends that:

 

1.         City Council not approve the installation of a pedestrian-cyclist refuge island on Bathurst Street at its intersection with the Kay Gardner Beltline Trail.

Summary

Toronto and East York Community Council, at its meeting on October 17, 2013, directed Transportation Services to report on installing a pedestrian-cyclist refuge island on Bathurst Street, where it intersects with the Beltline Trail. 

 

The installation of a pedestrian-cyclist refuge island on Bathurst Street, where it intersects with the Beltline Trail is not feasible.  The physical characteristics of this location are not suitable for a refuge island.  Refuge islands, installed inappropriately, can become a safety hazard in and of themselves.

Financial Impact

There is no financial impact associated with the staff recommendation.

1.         Not approve all-way stop sign control at the intersection of Logan Avenue and Withrow Avenue.

Summary

This staff report is about a matter for which Toronto and East York Community Council has delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision.

 

Transportation Services is responding to a request from Toronto and East York Community Council to investigate and report on the feasibility of replacing the existing pedestrian crossover at the intersection of Logan Avenue at Withrow Avenue with all-way stop control.

 

Our assessment revealed that all-way stop control is not warranted because the vehicle and pedestrian volumes and collision history does not satisfy the warrant criteria.  The existing pedestrian crossover is satisfying the need of pedestrians crossing Logan Avenue.

Recommendations

Transportation Services recommends to Toronto and East York Community Council that:

 

1.         Traffic calming not be installed on Highfield Road, between Dundas Street East and Kerr Road.

Summary

This staff report is about a matter for which Toronto and East York Community Council has delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision.

 

Transportation Services staff have reviewed the need for traffic calming on Highfield Road, between Dundas Street East and Kerr Road, to address residents' concerns with vehicle speeds.  Our assessment indicates the criteria as set out in the traffic calming policy has not been satisfied.  Therefore, traffic calming should not be installed on Highfield Road at this time.

Financial Impact

The adoption of the above-noted recommendation will not result in any financial impact. If, however, Toronto and East York Community Council decides a speed hump on Highfield Road, between Dundas Street East and Kerr Road, would be beneficial, the following financial impact will result:

 

1.         The estimated cost for installing one speed hump would be $3,000.00.  Funds are available in the Transportation Services 2013 Capital Budget for traffic calming initiatives.  Installing a speed hump on this section of Highfield Road would be subject to competing priorities and funding availability.

Additional Speed Hump - Knox Avenue
Origin
(October 15, 2013) Report from the Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District
Recommendations

Transportation Services recommends that Toronto and East York Community Council:

 

1.         Approve the installation of an additional speed hump on Knox Avenue, between Queen Street East and Eastern Avenue.

 

2.         Replace Drawing No. 421F-9265, dated April 2008, attached to the report dated January 17, 2008, entitled "Knox Avenue, between Queen Street East and Eastern Avenue - Traffic Calming" from Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District with Drawing No. 421G-1228, dated October 2013, attached to the report dated October 15, 2013, entitled "Additional Speed Hump - Knox Avenue" from Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District, with respect to the roadway alteration by-law.

Summary

This staff report is about a matter for which Toronto and East York Community Council has been delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision.

 

Transportation Services staff investigated the feasibility of installing an additional speed hump on Knox Avenue, between Queen Street East and Eastern Avenue, to address residents' concerns with vehicle speeds.

 

It is feasible to install an additional speed hump on Knox Avenue, approximately 31 metres north of Eastern Avenue.  The installation of the proposed speed hump may result in a slight reduction in vehicle speeds.  However, it would be less than the typical 60 metre spacing between speed humps and emergency services vehicles would be slightly delayed.

Financial Impact

The estimated cost for installing one speed hump would be $3,000.00.  Funds have been allocated in the Transportation Services 2013 Capital Budget for traffic calming initiatives.  Installing an additional speed hump on Knox Avenue is subject to competing priorities and funding availability.

Authority to Attend an Ontario Municipal Board Hearing - 323 Westlake Avenue
Origin
(October 30, 2013) Letter from Councillor Janet Davis, Ward 31, Beaches-East York
Recommendations

That:

 

1.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor to attend at the Ontario Municipal Board Hearing in support of the Committee of Adjustment Decision to refuse the minor variances related to 323 Westlake Avenue (B0043/13TEY, A0427/13TEY, A0428/13TEY), and to retain an outside planning consultant(s) if needed, for the hearing.

Summary

On July 31st, 2013, the Committee of Adjustment refused to grant consent to sever the property and four (4) variances from the former Borough of East York By-law No. 6752, in respect of the property at 323 Westlake Avenue. The applicant has appealed this refusal to the Ontario Municipal Board. A hearing is scheduled for January 22, 2014 at 10:00 a.m.

 

The purpose of the application for severance and minor variances was to facilitate the construction of a new two-storey single family dwelling on the lot and maintain the existing one-storey single family detached dwelling on a reduced lot. The application for severance was refused on the grounds that the proposed land division does not conform to the policies of the official plan, the suitability of the land for the purposes for which it is to be subdivided has not been demonstrated, the suitability of the dimensions and shapes of the proposed lots has not been demonstrated, the adequacy of roads, vehicular access, parking and loading facilities has not been demonstrated, and the adequacy of utilities and municipal services has not been demonstrated. The application for variances was refused on the grounds that the general intent and purpose of the Official Plan is not maintained, the general intent and purpose of the Zoning By-law is not maintained, the variances are not considered desirable for the appropriate development of the land, and, in the opinion of the Committee, the variances are not minor.

 

I am therefore seeking Council approval to attend the OMB in support of the decision of the Committee of Adjustment.

Summary

The City Planning Division has initiated a study of the lands bordered by Bathurst Street, Strachan Avenue, Wellington Street West, and the Metrolinx rail corridor.  The study will engage area stakeholders, including landowners, residents and business owners to develop a long-term vision for the area.  The study will consider existing uses such as the Quality Meats operation, and the City-owned shelter, day care and Works Yard.  Recommendations will address the appropriate built form, transition and appropriate buffering of new developments, potential improvements to pedestrian, cycling and vehicle connections, enhancement of area park space, and the study area's relation to the Fort York National Historic Site and other surrounding areas to the north, east and west.

 

The first community meeting on the Study was held on October 15, 2013. Further community meetings will be scheduled through 2014.

 

This report responds to Recommendation 5 of Item PG24.5, which was before Planning and Growth Management Committee on May 16, 2013 and adopted by Council on June 11, 12 and 13, 2013 by providing an update on the status of the study and a study methodology.

Recommendations

The City Planning Division recommends that:

 

1.         City Council revise the conditions of approval of demolition of 356, 358 and 360 Spadina Road under Municipal Code Chapter 667 originally approved by City Council at its meeting of April 6, 2009, as item TE24.7, by deleting Recommendation 1.b which provided for the retention of the house comprising 2 residential rental units at 362 Spadina Road.

 

2.         City Council further revise the conditions of approval referred to in Recommendation 1 by approving the application to demolish the residential building at 362 Spadina Road comprising 2 existing residential rental units pursuant to Municipal Code Chapters 667 and 363 subject to the following conditions under Chapter 667 which provide for the replacement of rental housing as outlined in this report:

 

a.         the owner shall provide two (2) residential rental units in a house to be constructed on the subject site and maintained as rental housing for a period of at least 20 years, comprising at least one (1) five-bedroom unit and one (1) one-bedroom unit, both of which shall be provided as rental housing for households connected to the religious centre which owns and operates the buildings at 356-362 Spadina Road;

 

b.         the owner shall not apply for a period of at least 20 years to convert to non-rental housing purposes, including by severance, nor to demolish without replacement, the 2 replacement rental units in a) above;

 

c.         the owner shall apply for all building permits required, and shall construct the replacement rental building substantially in accordance with the plans dated October 17, 2013, with any revisions to the rental unit floor plans to the satisfaction of the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning Division;

 

d.         the owner shall agree to complete the new replacement rental building and have the 2 rental dwelling units ready and available for occupancy prior to the date that the religious centre to be developed on the subject site opens for its operations;

 

e.         the owner shall enter into and register one or more Section 111 Agreement(s) to secure the conditions outlined in a) to d) inclusive to the satisfaction of the City Solicitor and the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning Division; and

 

f.         the owner shall enter into and register, a Section 118 Restriction under the Land Titles Act (to the satisfaction of the City Solicitor) agreeing not to transfer or charge those parts of the lands, comprising the 2 replacement rental units, without the written consent of the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning Division or their designate, to assist with securing the Section 111 Agreement against future owners and encumbrances of the lands until such time as the City Solicitor determines that its registration on title is no longer required to secure the provisions of the Section 111 Agreement.

 

3.         City Council authorize the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning Division to issue preliminary approval for a Section 111 permit for the application for the demolition of 362 Spadina Road under Municipal Code Chapter 667 after the satisfaction or securing of the conditions in Recommendation 2;

 

4.         City Council authorize the Chief Building Official to issue a Section 111 permit under Municipal Code Chapter 667 after the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning Division has given the preliminary approval referred to in Recommendation 3.

 

5.         City Council authorize the Chief Building Official to issue a permit under Section 33 of the Planning Act no earlier than the issuance of the building permit which provides for the foundation of the replacement rental building, and after the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning Division has given the preliminary approval referred to in Recommendation 3, which permit may be included in the demolition permit for Chapter 667 under 363-11.1, of the Municipal Code, on condition that:

 

a.         the owner erect a residential building on site no later than two (2) years from the day demolition of the buildings is commenced; and

 

b.         should the owner fail to complete the new building within the time specified in condition (a), the City Clerk shall be entitled to enter on the collector’s roll, to be collected in a like manner as municipal taxes, the sum of twenty thousand dollars ($20,000.00) for each dwelling unit for which a demolition permit is issued, and that each sum shall, until payment, be a lien or charge upon the land for which the demolition permit is issued.

 

6.         City Council authorize the appropriate City officials to take such actions as are necessary to implement the foregoing, including execution of the Section 111 Agreements.

Summary

This application proposes to revise the conditions of the previous approval in 2009 of a Section 111 permit for demolition of three rental housing buildings at 356, 358, 360 and 362 Spadina Road by allowing the demolition of the fourth building at 362 Spadina.  City Council's conditions for the previously approved demolition included the retention of the building at 362 Spadina Road with two rental housing units.

 

The revised conditions would permit the demolition of 362 Spadina and require the replacement of a similar residential building at the same location with 2 residential rental units to be secured as rental housing.  This report reviews and recommends approval of the application to demolish 362 Spadina and to revise the conditions of approval under Chapter 667 for the property at 356-362 Spadina Road.

Financial Impact

The recommendations in this report have no financial impact.

That:

 

1.         City Council direct the City Clerk to advise the Registrar of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (“AGCO”) that the liquor licence application for Touhenboku Ramen, 261 Queen Street West (the “Premises”), is not in the public interest having regard to the needs and wishes of the residents, and that the Registrar should issue a Proposal to Review the liquor licence application.

 

2.         City Council request the Licence Appeal Tribunal (“LAT”) to provide the City with an opportunity to be made a party in any proceedings with respect to the Premises.

 

3.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor to attend all proceedings before the LAT in this matter and be directed to take all necessary actions so as to give effect to this Motion, including adding and deleting conditions to any liquor licence issued for the Premises, in consultation with the Ward Councillor, which address issues including, but not limited to, noise, safety, security personnel, security cameras, crowd control, signage, lighting and litter.

Summary

Zuimei Co. Ltd. has submitted an application for a new liquor licence to the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (“AGCO”) for a premises at 261 Queen Street West operating under the name Touhenboku Ramen (the “Premises”). The applicant is seeking a liquor licence for an indoor capacity of 28 patrons.

 

The Premises is located in close proximity to residential properties. There is concern in the community that this new establishment will cause noise and other disturbances to residents in the area. If conditions are put in place, these concerns may be mitigated.  As such, this application for a liquor licence is not in the public interest unless certain conditions, addressing the concerns of the community, are attached to the licence.

Recommendations

That the Toronto and East York Community Council recommend that:

 

1.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor to appear at the Ontario Municipal Board to support the decision of the Committee of Adjustment in refusing File No. A0617/13TEY with regards to 59 Barton Avenue.

Summary

On September 25, 2013 the Committee of Adjustment refused an application to construct a second- storey addition over the existing one-storey semi-detached dwelling located at 59 Barton Avenue.

 

Several residents expressed significant concerns about the proposed density resulting in overdevelopment of the site, and if approved would set a negative precedence for the area. Further, the variances requested for rear and side-yard setbacks raised privacy concerns for adjacent properties. The application was refused, as the variances requested were not considered to be minor. The proposal was also found to be not in keeping with the intent and purpose of the Official Plan and Zoning By-law, and not considered desirable for the appropriate development of the land.

 

The applicant appealed the Committee of Adjustment decision to the OMB on October 4, 2013. Case # PL131108 has been assigned and a hearing has been scheduled on March 11, 2013.

(November 15, 2013) Letter from Councillor Adam Vaughan, Ward 20, Trinity-Spadina
Recommendations

 That the Toronto and East York Community Council recommend that:

           

1.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor to appear at the Ontario Municipal Board to support the decision of the Committee of Adjustment in refusing File No. A0650/13TEY with regards to 80 Willcocks Street.

Summary

On September 25, 2013 the Committee of Adjustment refused an application to construct a rear second-storey deck with stairs to ground level to the 21/2-storey semi-detached duplex located at 80 Willcocks Street.

 

The Harbord Village Residents' Association, neighbours, and area residents expressed significant concerns about the proposed construction of a second-storey deck and stairs to the ground level that would serve as a main entrance for the second and third floors. Residents opposed to this proposal cited privacy concerns with respect to the adjacent property, as well as overlook and privacy concerns for the adjoining backyards from the second-storey deck. The application was refused, as the variances requested were not considered to be minor. The proposal was also found to be not in keeping with the intent and purpose of the Official Plan and Zoning By-law, and not considered desirable for the appropriate development of the land.

 

The applicant appealed the Committee of Adjustment decision to the OMB on October 15, 2013. Case # PL131163 has been assigned but a hearing has not yet been scheduled.

School Bus Loading Zones - Ward 30 (Non-Delegated)
Origin
(October 31, 2013) Report from the Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District
Recommendations

Transportation Services recommends that:

 

1.         City Council approve the parking regulations at the locations identified in Appendix A and Appendix B, attached to the report, entitled “School Bus Loading Zones - Ward 30”, dated October 31, 2013, from the Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District.

Summary

Transportation Services is responding to a request from Toronto and East York Community Council to report on options to rescind the parking restrictions in school zones on weekends and during school holidays in the Toronto and East York District.

 

As the operational characteristics of school zones can vary significantly, each location must be assessed individually to determine the feasibility of allowing parking on weekend and during school holidays. 

 

This report recommends changes to one school bus loading zone in Ward 30.  As the TTC operates a regular service on the subject street, this report requires City Council approval.

 

A companion report has also been submitted with respect to streets that Toronto and East York Community Council has delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision.

Financial Impact

Funds to undertake the necessary signage adjustments in the estimated amount of $1,500.00 are contained within Transportation Services 2013 Operating Budget.

Traffic Considerations Associated with 1075 Queen Street East Development Application
Origin
(November 19, 2013) Letter from Councillor Paula Fletcher, Ward 30, Toronto-Danforth
Recommendations

That the Director of Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District:

 

1          Evaluate the feasibility and desirability of altering the portion of Winnifred Avenue from Queen Street East to the laneway immediately south from one-way operation to two-way operation to be ready ahead of construction.

 

2.         Report on excluding the development at 1075 Queen Street East from Permit Parking Zone 8D.

Summary

At the community meeting held regarding the development application at 1075 Queen Street East, a number of concerns were raised by the residents about the traffic impact on Winnifred Avenue during construction and after completion of the project. Residents have suggested changing the section of Winnifred Avenue from Queen Street East to the laneway immediately to the south change from one way to two way.

 

Another suggestion put forward is to ensure permit parking remains available to current residents when the new residents move in to the new apartments by eliminating access to permit parking in Permit Parking Area 8D.

 

As Transportation Services is currently reviewing this application, I would ask that these suggestions be considered and included in the staff recommendations when they are presented to the Toronto and East York Community Council.

Traffic Considerations to Improve Safety on Carlaw Avenue from Langley Avenue to Riverdale Avenue
Origin
(November 19, 2013) Letter from Councillor Paula Fletcher, Ward 30, Toronto-Danforth
Recommendations

That the Toronto and East York Community Council request the Director, Transportation Services, Toronto and East York District to:

 

1.         Evaluate the feasibility and desirability of reducing traffic on Carlaw Avenue from Langley Avenue to Riverdale Avenue to one lane in each direction, including implementing:

 

a.         Traffic calming islands as appropriate to direct traffic to a single lane.

 

b.         Modifying parking restrictions to permit parking in the curbside lane throughout the day.

 

2.         Improve the signage and markings for the Pedestrian Crossing at Langley Avenue and Carlaw Avenue.

Summary

Residents in Riverdale are concerned about the safety of children walking to school and crossing Carlaw Avenue to do so. The intersection of Carlaw and Riverdale is an important crossing for children attending Pape School and currently the stretch of Carlaw Avenue from Langley Avenue to Riverdale Avenue operates as two lanes in each direction.

 

The residents would like Carlaw narrowed to one lane in each direction on Carlaw from Langley to Riverdale to reduce the risk for children on their way to school.

Recommendations

That the Toronto and East York Community Council:

 

1.         Approve the application to demolish the subject residential buildings at 17-21  Peel Avenue with the following conditions:

 

 a.        That all debris and rubble be removed immediately after demolition.

 

 b.        That any holes in the property are backfilled with clean fill.

Summary

On October 17, 2013, 11 Peel Avenue Inc. applied for a permit to demolish the existing residential buildings at 17-21 Peel Avenue.  (Application Nos. 17 Peel 13 251863 DEM, 19 Peel 13 251874 DEM, 21 Peel 13 251879 DEM)

 

In accordance with the Residential Demolition Control By-law No. 1009-2006, the applicant posted a sign on the property for 14 days giving notice of the intention to demolish the property. An objection has not been received to date regarding the proposed demolition.

 

In accordance with Section 2 of the City of Toronto Act, 1991 (No.4), c. Pr24, S.O.1991, Toronto and East York Community Council may impose any reasonable conditions which have regard to the nature of the residential property including the preservation of significant natural features and requiring

the erection and maintenance of structures and enclosures.

 

No building permit for a replacement building had been applied for at the site and since the buildings contain 1 residential unit, the application is being referred to the Toronto and East York Community Council. In such cases, the Municipal Code requires the City Council to issue or refuse the demolition permit.

 

Although there is no current application before Community Planning regarding these properties, the applicant is at the final stages of the planning process for official plan amendment and rezoning applications for the property at 11 Peel Avenue.  In addition, the properties are adjacent to City-owned lands that are targeted for use as a new public park.

 

The requested demolition is required now to enable the applicant to initiate certain work in respect of the new public park.

 

The requested residential demolition is matter for which the Community Council has delegated authority from City Council to make a final decision

Request for Report on the Potential Designation of 10 St. Mary Street

(November 19, 2013) Letter from Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam, Ward 27, Toronto Centre-Rosedale
Recommendations

That the Toronto and East York Community Council request the Director of Urban Design to report on the evaluation of the property at 10 St. Mary Street for its potential designation under Part IV of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Summary

10 St. Mary Street is an 8-storey office building located at Yonge and St. Mary Street.  This building was identified in the North Yonge Planning framework as a building of potential heritage interest.  Toronto Buildings has received an application for a demolition permit on this site.  No application for a replacement structure has been submitted to the City of Toronto. 

 

The building is located in an area that is currently undergoing a Heritage Conservation District Study.  It would be premature to permit demolition of this building prior to the completion of this study and before the City has had the opportunity to evaluate the heritage value of the building.    The current Ontario Building Code does not have any means to prevent the issuance of a demolition permit for buildings that are not yet designated, but are being considered for heritage designation.
