This study reviews the built form and physical character of the area which includes examining building envelopes, height and massing, assessing heritage resources and considering streetscape and landscape improvement.

TransformTO, Toronto’s new and ambitious climate action plan, identifies how we’ll reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve our health, grow our economy, and improve social equity. In July 2017, City Council unanimously approved a set of long-term, low-carbon goals, and strategies to reach them. Everyone will have a part to play in transforming Toronto into a low-carbon city. Learn what Toronto will look like in 2050, how to reduce emissions, and what you can do to help. #TransformTO
Toronto’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets: 30% by 2020, 65% by 2030; 80% by 2050.
• Toronto’s Homes and Buildings: By 2030, all new buildings will be built to produce near zero GHG emissions. By 2050, all existing buildings will have been retrofitted to improve energy performance by an average of 40%.
• Transportation: By 2050, 100% of vehicles in Toronto will use low-carbon energy; 75% of trips under 5 kmwill be walked or cycled.
• Energy: By 2050, 75% of energy used will be renewable or low-carbon.
• Waste Diversion: By 2050, 95% of all waste will be diverted from landfills.
In keeping with TransformTO’s guiding principles, Toronto’s climate actions will support social equity, affordability, poverty reduction, local jobs, public health and resilient communities.
