Spring & Summer Newsletter: Planning Studies

Posted on July 9, 2020

City Planning Studies 

Heritage Conservation District (HCD) studies involve a combination of research, field review, and analysis, including extensive consultation with the community prior to Council considering the designation. 

Baby Point Heritage Conservation District Study 

The Toronto Preservation Board, in July 2018, received a report and endorsed the suggested plan to proceed with developing an HCD Plan for the Baby Point neighbourhood. The HCD Plan process has not yet been initiated and a project start date has yet to be confirmed. 

Bloor West Village Character Study and Heritage Conservation District

There is currently an Avenue Study as well as an HCD Study underway for Bloor St W between Keele St and the Humber River. The Avenue Study assesses the land uses, transportation infrastructure, community services, built form, character, and redevelopment potential of the corridor. Policy and design guidelines will be developed alongside the HCD Study, which will include research, a built form survey, and analysis to determine if the Study Area warrants designation as an HCD.

High Park Apartment Neighbourhood Character Area and Urban Design Guidelines 

In response to significant development applications within the High Park Apartment Neighbourhood Area, City Council directed staff to undertake a study of the neighbourhood. The resulting Site and Area Specific Policy 419 identifies appropriate policies to guide change and compatible infill development. This policy approved by City Council in 2018 remains under appeal. No hearing dates have been scheduled. 

Junction Heritage Conservation District

 The process has begun towards an HCD for the Junction. Once the first steps are complete Heritage staff will begin Phase 1 of the Study, which will include extensive engagement and consultation with the neighbourhood along Dundas St W between Humberside Ave and Gilmour Ave.

West Queen West Planning Study

After several years of work,  Toronto East York Community Council  has approved City Planning staff’s recommendations on guiding development and public initiatives on Queen St West between Bathurst and Roncesvalles. The recommendations are intended to:

  • Guide the height, form and characteristics of new development to ensure it responds appropriately to the existing and planned context of the study and adjacent areas;
  • Conserve and enhance the cultural heritage value and function of Queen St W as a commercial main street; and
  • Provide appropriate transition to adjacent low-rise neighbourhoods.

City Council review is scheduled for June, 2020. Following, the Parkdale Main Street and West Queen West Heritage Conservation District Plans are scheduled to be presented to Toronto Preservation Board (TPB) and TEYCC in the fall of 2020.
