Decision Advice and Other Information
Staff from City Planning, Planning Research and Analytics gave a presentation on Development Pipeline 2022.
The City Planning Division monitors development activity in the city. This report and the attached bulletin summarize development activity in the city over the past five-and-a-half years. Information from the Division's Land Use Information System II and other sources have been analyzed to provide an overview of all development projects with any development activity between January 1, 2017 and June 30, 2022. Development activity refers to progress at any stage of the approvals and development processes, including application submission, development review, development approval, Building Permit application, Building Permit issuance, construction, ready for occupancy and completion. The bulletin illustrates how the city has grown over these five-and-a-half years and how it may continue to develop over time.
In total, 717,327 residential units and 14,484,961 million square metres of non-residential gross floor area (GFA) were proposed by projects with development activity between January 1, 2017 and June 30, 2022. Of this, 103,638 residential units and 3,087,319 square metres of non-residential gross floor area have been built. There were 203,793 residential units approved but not yet built, and an additional 409,896 units in projects still under review. Similarly, there was 5,483,875 square metres of non-residential gross floor area approved and not yet built, and a further 5,913,767 square metres in projects under review. In total, there are 613,689 residential units and 11,397,642 m2 of non-residential gross floor area in projects that are either under review or active, indicating a continuation of strong development activity in Toronto in the coming years. If all of these residential units were realized over time, they would increase the total number of dwellings in the city by over one half.
