2a - Redevelopment of 260 Adelaide Street West - Authority to Enter into a Joint Development Agreement

Origin
(September 9, 2021) Report from the Executive Director, Corporate Real Estate Management and the Interim Chief Executive Officer, CreateTO
Summary

The purpose of this report is to receive approval from City Council to authorize the Executive Director, Corporate Real Estate Management to enter into a negotiated joint development agreement with respect to the redevelopment of the City-owned property at 260 Adelaide Street West (“260 Adelaide”) with the owner of 254 Adelaide Street West ("254 Adelaide"), 254 Adelaide Investments Ltd., based on the terms and conditions approved by the CreateTO Board, subject to obtaining City Council approval, by adoption of Item RA23.2 at its meeting of July 7, 2021 (the "CreateTO Board Report"), and set out in this CreateTO Board Report's Confidential Attachment 1.

 

Unlocking the value at 260 Adelaide will result in significant city-building, including affordable housing, new local parkland, a new and improved fire station and the construction of other important City facilities across a number of City-owned properties. CreateTO, working with colleagues in Corporate Real Estate Management and City Planning, have developed a business case to strategically leverage the property value at 260 Adelaide and achieve significant City-building along with the adjacent privately-owned properties at 254 Adelaide and 229 Richmond Street West ("229 Richmond").

 

As the redevelopment of 260 Adelaide is a broader City-building strategic initiative, it is appropriate that this City companion report and the CreateTO Board Report be considered by Executive Committee.
