Origin

(March 21, 2022) Report from the Deputy City Manager, Infrastructure and Development Services

Summary

The Province of Ontario is advancing the planning and delivery of the Ontario Line from the Science Centre to Exhibition Place through central Toronto, one of its four priority subway projects in Toronto.  As part of this subway project, a number of stations have been identified as part of the Transit Oriented Communities (TOC) program, which leverages new development permission on transit station sites for a contribution to the future transit facilities.  

 

The TOC proposals covered in this report have been advanced by the Province within the context of the legislative framework provided by the Building Transit Faster Act, the Transit Oriented Communities Act, and Minister's zoning powers under the Planning Act.  It is within this context that these proposals have been reviewed by City staff, and to every extent possible, City staff have sought to negotiate and protect for municipal objectives to achieve appropriate outcomes.

 

This report provides an update on the general TOC program and process to date, including negotiations with the Province on community benefits, affordable housing, rental housing replacement, parkland dedication, enabling infrastructure, terms and agreements and method of authorization of the TOC proposals.  City staff are seeking City Council authority to conclude agreements with the Province to confirm some of the details of the TOC program as it will apply to subway projects in Toronto, including a Value Allocation Framework and a resourcing agreement to allow the City to manage the demands of the TOC program. 

 

The Province is seeking zoning certainty for the TOC proposals in advance of going to market to find development partners for each of the sites.  City staff expect the Province to issue Minister's Zoning Orders in spring 2022 to achieve this zoning certainty.

 

This report provides planning assessments of the final development concepts for eight Ontario Line TOC proposals made by the Province through Infrastructure Ontario.  City staff are seeking City Council authority to conclude a series of Memorandums of Understanding with the Province to confirm the development details for each of the following TOC proposals:

 

1. Corktown Station block (bounded by King St. E, Parliament St., Front St. E and Berkeley St.)
2. First Parliament block (bounded by Front St. E, Parliament St., Parliament Square Park, and Berkeley St.)
3. Queen/Spadina NE corner (372-378 Queen St. W and 165 – 177 Spadina Ave. including the existing heritage CIBC building and an A&W outlet)
4. Queen/Spadina SW corner (443 – 453 Queen St. W including the TD bank property and three adjacent properties to the west)
5. King/Bathurst NE corner (662 & 668 King St. W and 91 Bathurst St.)
6. King/Bathurst SE corner (645-665 King St. W, 69-73 Bathurst St. and 60 Stewart St. – the Banknote building)
7. Exhibition Jefferson site (2 & 20 Atlantic Ave.)
8. Exhibition Atlantic site (1 & 1A Atlantic Ave.)
 

Since submitting the TOC proposals in April and May, 2021, the Province has made some modifications and has carried out two rounds of public engagement for the TOCs, as well as meetings with a series of Local Advisory Committees that it convened at each station location.  A summary of these activities and feedback received from the public and key stakeholders is included.

 

The report concludes with an outline of next steps and anticipated timing of Provincial decisions and actions through the first half of 2022.  Best available information is provided regarding the marketing of TOC offerings, the process to award contracts, and the future site plan process.
