Community Council Decision

Origin

(May 27, 2020) Report from the Acting Director, Traffic Management, Transportation Services

Summary

This staff report is about a matter that Community Council has delegated authority to make a final decision provided that it is not amended so that it varies with City policy or by-laws.

 

Plazacorp Investments Limited is constructing 27-storey and 34-storey buildings at 25 Holly Street and 50 Dunfield Avenue, respectively. The development site will have frontage on both Holly Street and Dunfield Avenue. The site is bounded by existing residential apartment buildings to the north, Dunfield Avenue to the east, Soudan Avenue to the south and Holly Street to the west.

 

This development site is within the Construction Hub Coordination Pilot program and has been reviewed by staff to ensure compliance with the pilot program. This entails a coordinated review that includes construction coordination, community support, business support and communication and engagement with area residents to address safety, equity, vibrancy, innovation and engagement--the five guiding principles of the Construction Hub pilot.

 

Transportation Services is requesting authorization to close the east sidewalk and a portion of the southbound lane on Holly Street for a period of 31 months and the closure of the west sidewalk and a portion of the northbound lane on Dunfield Avenue for a period of 40 months, in order to accommodate construction staging areas. Pedestrian movements will be accommodated within the closed curb lanes.
