Origin

(November 15, 2016) Letter from Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti, Ward 7 - York West

Summary

The area to the north and south of Wilson Avenue between Highway 400 and Jane Street is characterized by a mix of retail, employment and apartment uses that will be experiencing pressure for new and infill development, revitalization and reinvestment.  A large portion of the area is designated Mixed Use Areas in the City's Official Plan, which are areas that will absorb most of the anticipated increase in retail, office and service employment in Toronto in the coming decades, as well as much of the new housing. 

 

I would like to request that City Planning staff undertake a visioning study of the lands designated Mixed Use Areas, Employment Areas and Apartment Neighbourhoods to development a vision, goals and principles to guide future growth and development in the area.
