Origin

(June 17, 2022) Report from the Executive Director, Corporate Real Estate Management

Summary

In December 2021, City Council authorized the initiation of expropriation proceedings for a fee simple interest in a portion of the property municipally known as 350 Progress Avenue (the "Property"). The Property is required for the purposes of constructing a primary access route to the lands and premises municipally known as 330 Progress Avenue and various site services, including without limitation domestic water, sanitary sewers, storm water, hydro, telecommunications and ancillary works for the new Toronto Paramedic Services multi-function station.

 

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 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 is set out in Appendix A and shown on the draft expropriation plan attached as Appendix C.
