Origin

(December 5, 2019) Report from the Acting Director, Traffic Management, Transportation Services

Summary

As the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) operates a transit service on Avenue Road, City Council approval of this report is required.

 

Davies Development Corp. is constructing a nine-storey residential development at 281-289 Avenue Road. The sidewalk and a portion of the northbound curb lane on the east side of Avenue Road fronting the site are currently closed to accommodate construction staging operations for the development. City Council, at its meeting on January 30 and 31, 2019, authorized the subject construction staging area from February 6, 2019 to February 6, 2020.

 

Transportation Services is requesting authorization to extend the construction staging area on Avenue Road for an additional seven months (i.e. from February 7, 2020 to August 31, 2020), in order to complete the construction of the development.

 

The developer has requested an extension of the duration of the construction staging area on Avenue Road, as the site has experienced a number of construction delays encountered during the excavation and shoring phase.
