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


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.
