(October 24, 2017) Report from the Acting Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning

Summary

This report provides a series of updates on the Unilever Precinct Planning Study, including the review of First Gulf's East Harbour development applications and the East Harbour SmartTrack Station planning context.  It provides information on consultation events for these projects and sets out the anticipated consultation plan moving forward. 

 

This report also includes a description of First Gulf's Master Plan Update submission.  This submission revises the prior master plan proposal from December 2016.  It includes additional properties acquired at 375 and 385 Eastern Avenue (adjacent to the Metrolinx rail embankment), and also contemplates additional density on First Gulf's lands.  First Gulf is now proposing 925,314 m2 (approximately 10 million ft2) of employment development on the 15.15 hectare (37 acre) portion of the Unilever Precinct they own, compared to 829,833m2

(approximately 9 million ft2) on the 13.8 hectares (34 acres) they owned at the time of the December 2016 rezoning and subdivision submissions.

 

In addition, this report addresses the request of Planning and Growth Management Committee from February 23, 2017, that the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning, report back on consultation with Enbridge Gas Distribution respecting First Gulf's applications and the Unilever Precinct Plan.  It also provides updates on Real Estate Services' work regarding yard consolidation and on coordination of major enabling infrastructure projects in the Lower Don River, including the newly commenced Broadview and Eastern Flood Protection Municipal Class Environmental Assessment.

 

This report is submitted for information at this time to provide updated details to the Committee on First Gulf's current proposal; to advise as to ongoing consultation activities on the Precinct Planning Study, the SmartTrack station and First Gulf's resubmitted proposal; and to address matters the Committee requested information on in February 2017.
