Origin

(December 5, 2017) Report from the Acting Director, Transportation Services, North York District

Summary

As Yonge Street is a major arterial roadway, this proposed long term sidewalk and road occupation requires City Council approval.

 

A 29-storey mixed use residential and retail development with 3 levels of below grade parking at 2360 Yonge Street has been authorized for construction on the southwest corner of Yonge Street and Helendale Avenue. The developer will be permitted to construct this building to within one metre of the Yonge Street road allowance, and will perform construction of streetscaping on the road allowance.

 

On June 28, 2017 City Planning, North York District, provided Notice of Approval Conditions to the applicant to allow preliminary construction while the site plan agreement is being prepared by Toronto Legal Services.

 

In order to facilitate the excavation of this property and subsequent site construction, the property owner and developer, Helendale GP Incorporated for Helendale LP, has submitted an application to Transportation Services to close the west sidewalk and partial south bound curb lane on Yonge Street from Helendale Avenue to a point 58 metres south. This closure is required to provide a temporary covered walkway for pedestrians and a construction staging area in the southbound curb lane on Yonge Street. 

 

The applicant originally requested the closure for 36 months.  However, this report recommends a closure for the maximum of one year.  Any time extensions that are shown to be needed to continue with the safe construction of the building will be reported to North York Community Council before the one-year time period has elapsed.

 

Helendale GP Incorporated for Helendale LP also requests the closure of the eastbound curb lane and south sidewalk on Helendale Avenue. This location is currently occupied by an adjacent construction staging area and will not be available until April 30, 2018.  This matter will be dealt with in a future companion report requiring North York Community Council approval.
