(August 10, 2017) Report from the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning

Summary

This report recommends that City Council include 258 properties identified in Recommendations 1-7 of this report on the City of Toronto's Heritage Register. The properties are located in the Midtown in Focus planning study area adjoining the Yonge-Eglinton intersection, and comprise commercial "Main Street" properties located on both sides of Bayview Avenue, Eglinton Avenue East and West, Mount Pleasant Road and Yonge Street.

 

This report represents Phase 1 of a project to "batch list" all of the properties in the study area that have been identified for inclusion on the City's Heritage Register. 

 

All of the properties meet Ontario Regulation 9/06, the provincial criteria prescribed for municipal designation, which the City also applies when assessing properties for its Heritage Register. 

 

Properties on the Heritage Register will be conserved and maintained in accordance with the Official Plan Heritage Policies. 

 

City staff will bring forward future listing and designation reports in Q4 2017 for the additional properties identified as having potential heritage value in the Midtown in Focus study area.
