(November 9, 2021) Report from the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning

Summary

The City of Toronto, in partnership with CreateTO, is proposing a new Etobicoke Civic Centre ("ECC") on City-owned lands located at the northeast corner of Dundas Street West and Kipling Avenue, municipally known as 3755 Bloor Street West. This report recommends approval of a City-initiated Zoning By-law Amendment to permit the new Etobicoke Civic Centre with municipal offices, market office space, an outdoor civic square, a community recreation centre, a medical clinic, a childcare centre, a café, a public art gallery, and a new Toronto Public Library district branch. The community recreation centre is proposed to have a gymnasium, aquatic centre, multi-purpose rooms, and fitness rooms.

 

The proposal is seeking to amend the former City of Etobicoke Zoning Code, as amended by Zoning By-law 1088-2002 and city-wide Zoning By-law 569-2013, to permit the building with heights varying from three storeys to 16 storeys and with a total gross floor area of 44,677 square metres. A total of 420 parking spaces managed by the Toronto Parking Authority ("TPA") are located within a two-level underground parking garage.

 

The recommended draft Zoning By-law Amendments are consistent with the Provincial Policy Statement (2020), conforms with A Place to Grow: Growth Plan (2020) and the City's Official Plan.
