Origin

(December 22, 2021) Report from the Executive Director, Corporate Real Estate Management

Summary

On June 8, 2021, City Council authorized the initiation of expropriation proceedings for fee simple interests in the properties municipally known as 81 Bloor Street East and 40/42 Hayden Street (the "Property Requirements").

 

The Property Requirements are required for the purposes of constructing a new alternative station entrance, emergency exit and electrical substation facility as part of the Toronto Transit Commission Bloor-Yonge Capacity Improvement project (the "Project").

 

This report relates to the second stage of the expropriation process. During the first stage and in accordance with the Expropriations Act, Notices of Application for Approval to Expropriate were served on all applicable "registered owners", who had 30 days to request an inquiry into whether the proposed taking is fair, sound, and reasonably necessary. No requests were received and City Council may now approve the expropriation by this Stage Two report. If authorized, the Expropriation Plans will be registered and associated notices served. Statutory Offers of Compensation must be served prior to the City taking possession of the expropriated properties.

 

The Property Requirements are set out in Appendix A and shown on the reference plan attached as Appendix C.
