Origin

(May 18, 2018) Report from the Acting Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District

Summary

The application site includes the Galleria Mall site (Galleria Mall and McDonalds at 1245 Dupont Street & 213 Emerson Avenue) and Wallace Emerson Park and Community Centre (1260 Dufferin Street).  The proposal involves a land exchange between the applicant and the City of Toronto for a portion of the park along Dufferin Street with a portion of the west side of the Galleria Mall site. Wallace Emerson Park will be enlarged and further reconfigured with a parkland dedication from the Galleria Mall site.  The existing Wallace Emerson Community Centre will be demolished following the construction of a new larger community centre on the west side of the enlarged and reconfigured park.

 

A new public road (Public Street 'A') will run diagonally across the reconfigured lands from Dufferin Street to Dupont Street.  The area south of Public Street 'A' will be the enlarged and reconfigured park and new larger community centre.  The area to the north of Public Street 'A' will be the new development site. 


The new development site will be divided into east and west parcels by a new north-south public road (Public Street 'B') which runs through the centre of the development site from Public Street 'A' to Dupont Street.  The east development parcel will be further divided into three blocks (Blocks 1, 2, and 3) by an 850 square metre triangular Privately-Owned Publicly-Accessible Space (POPS) plaza, a pedestrian mews, and a private service lane.  The POPS plaza will be at the northeast corner of the intersection of Public Street 'A' and Public Street 'B'. The pedestrian mews will run diagonally across the east development parcel and will connect the POPS plaza and the intersection of Dupont Street and Dufferin Street.  The private service lane will run north-south between the POPS plaza and Dupont Street.  The west development parcel will be divided into two blocks (Blocks 4 and 5) by a north-south private road.

 

The proposal is for the east and west development parcels to be developed with a total of 8 mixed-use towers, ranging in height from 18 to 35-storeys. The tallest towers will be located on the north edge of the development parcels adjacent to Dupont Street, and the heights will decrease towards the Neighbourhoods to the east, west, and south. The site will be developed in phases, with each phase being the development of any one of the 5 Blocks that make up the site.

 

A total of 29,464 square metres of commercial space (including retail, service, food and 1,961 square metres of office space) will be located in the base of the buildings. The buildings will contain a total of 2,846 residential units, including 150 affordable rental housing units.

 

This report reviews and recommends approval of the application to amend the Official Plan and Zoning By-laws.
