Decision Advice and Other Information

The Toronto and East York Community Council adopted Recommendation 5 of the Toronto Preservation Board to refer the Waverly Hotel portion of the property at 484 Spadina Avenue to the Director, Urban Design, City Planning Division, for further review for designation under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act.

Origin

(March 20, 2014) Report from the Director, Urban Design, City Planning Division

Summary

This report recommends that City Council state its intention to designate the property at 484 Spadina Avenue under Part IV, Section 29 of the Ontario Heritage Act for its cultural heritage value.  Located on the west side of Spadina Avenue just north of College Street this property contains the four-and-a-half storey Waverley Hotel (1916-17) and the one-and-a-half storey Silver Dollar Room (1957-8).  The recommendation for designation applies only to the Silver Dollar Room.  It does not apply to the Waverley Hotel.

 

Following research and evaluation, staff have determined that the property at 484 Spadina Avenue meets Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation under the Ontario Heritage Act.  The designation of the property will identify the property's heritage values and attributes and enable City Council to control alterations to the site, enforce heritage property standards and maintenance, and refuse demolition.
