Origin

(June 9, 2014) Report from the Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District and City Solicitor

Summary

The City of Toronto passed the Central Waterfront Secondary Plan (CWSP) in April 2003 and subsequently zoning by-laws for East Bayfront (By-law No. 1049-2006) and North Keating (By-law No. 1174-2010).  Owners of six of the private development sites in the two precincts have filed appeals to the Central Waterfront Secondary Plan and the area specific By-laws.  After several years of discussions and several pre-hearing conferences, the Ontario Municipal Board has set time for hearings on four of these appeals starting November 17, 2014, for a period of four weeks, and a further period of six weeks commencing January 5, 2015.  City and Waterfront Toronto representatives have conducted lengthy ongoing negotiations with the appellants in an effort to find mutually acceptable solutions for both the appellants and the City.  In a report adopted by Council on May 6, 7 and 8, 2014 the City provided authority to allow for the settlement of appeals on 3 sites at Lower Jarvis Street and Queens Quay East.

 

This report outlines the nature of the second round of proposed settlement discussions and seeks City Council authority to settle the appeals based on the conclusions and recommendations set out in the Confidential Attachment.

 

This negotiation process has been an exceptionally labour intensive exercise, but has resulted in the Ontario Municipal Board approving the most recent settlements on June 2, 2014.  This report outlines the overall issues and requests in a confidential attachment, direction from Council to resolve the remaining appeals within the East Bayfront and Keating Precincts at the Ontario Municipal Board.
