Origin

(June 1, 2018) Report from Director, Real Estate Services

Summary

The purpose of this report is to seek authority to enter into an agreement to exchange lands owned by the City of Toronto and lands owned by 2470347 Ontario Inc. (Galleria Developments).

 

The proposed land exchange would facilitate a new street and block configuration associated with the redevelopment of the former Galleria Mall site located at 1245 Dupont Street. In order to facilitate the new street and block configuration, a land exchange is proposed which will exchange a portion of the former Galleria Mall lands for a portion of Wallace Emerson Park, including the existing Wallace Emerson Community Centre. The existing Wallace Emerson Community Centre will be demolished following the construction of a new larger community centre to be situated on the enlarged and reconfigured Wallace Emerson Park.

 

The terms for completing the transaction are considered to be fair, reasonable and reflective of market value.
