This report provides information and identifies a preliminary set of issues regarding the application to amend the former City of Etobicoke Zoning Code and City-wide Zoning By-law No. 569-2013 for the lands municipally known as 3199 Lake Shore Boulevard West. The application is for the Humber Cultural Hub which is a component of the phased institutional development of the Humber College Lakeshore Campus. The proposal includes the partial redevelopment of the site with multiple building additions that would be developed in two phases. The first phase would include the construction of an 8 and 9-storey student residence building that would be connected by 1, 3 and 4-storey academic podiums. The second phase would include the construction of a new 3 and 4-storey academic podium, with a music and performing arts hall, which would connect to the first phase.
The existing 6-storey student residence fronting Lake Shore Boulevard West would remain, as well as the existing 2 and 3-storey library building that extends to the southeast which would connect to the proposed development. The existing 2-storey academic building component located in the center of the site would be demolished and a portion of the existing surface parking lot (a total of 169 parking spaces) would be removed to facilitate the proposed development.
The total gross floor area of the institutional development would be 51,949 m², of which 32,757 m² would be attributed to the proposed development and 19,192 m² would be attributed to the existing buildings that would be retained on the site.
Staff are currently reviewing the application. It has been circulated to all appropriate agencies and City divisions for comment. Staff will proceed to schedule a community consultation meeting for the application with the Ward Councillor.
