Origin

(June 25, 2018) Report from the Acting Director, Community Planning, Toronto and East York District

Summary

On November 27, 2017 the applicant appealed of the Official Plan and Zoning By-law Amendment application to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT), citing Council's failure to make a decision on the application within the prescribed timelines of the Planning Act. A pre-hearing for these matters was held on June 14, 2018 and no hearing dates were set.

 

This application proposes to redevelop the site at 5 Scrivener Square, 4-10 & 10R Price Street, and 1095-1107 Yonge Street with two mixed-use buildings of 8-storeys (35 metres, including mechanical penthouse) and 26-storeys (97.3 metres, including mechanical penthouse). The two new buildings would contain a total of 182 rental dwelling units, 3,085 square metres of non-residential floor area, 164 parking spaces within a 4-level underground parking garage, and 203 bicycle parking spaces. The existing 4-storey buildings at 8-10 Price Street would be demolished. The existing buildings at 1095-1107 Yonge Street and 4 Price Street are to remain unaltered.

 

An alternative development proposal was submitted to the City on a "Without Prejudice but Not Confidential" (W/O Proposal) basis, was circulated to appropriate agencies and City divisions for comments, and was the focus of a second community meeting. This W/O Proposal is not formally before the LPAT.

 

The purpose of this report is to seek City Council's direction with respect to the City's position at the LPAT hearing. This report recommends that Council direct the City Solicitor, together with appropriate City staff, to oppose the 26-storey proposal, in its current form, at the LPAT.

 

The proposal in its current form is not consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement (2014), does not conform with the Growth Plan for the Greater Golden Horseshoe (2017), and does not conform to the Official Plan and is not in keeping with City Council approved Guidelines with respect to the proposed building height, massing, site layout, setbacks, streetscape, its relationship to open spaces and the public realm, the lack of on-site public park and vehicle/loading configuration.
