Proposed Amendment to City Centre Zoning By-law 7553/17

The City of Pickering has initiated a Zoning By-law Amendment. The purpose of this amendment is to facilitate a joint venture initiative between the City of Pickering and OPB Realty Inc., the owner of the Pickering Town Centre, to develop a portion of the Pickering Town Centre (PTC) lands on the west of Glenanna Road between Kingston Road and Pickering Parkway, and the City lands on the south side of The Esplanade South. The City is proposing the following amendments to the City Centre Zoning By-law 7553/17:

City of Pickering lands:

  • Rezone City lands from City Centre Civic (CCC) zone to City Centre Two (CC2) zone in order to permit residential uses, as shown on the Location Map below
  • Increase the maximum permitted building height on the City lands from 77 metres (approx. 25-storeys) to 125 metres (approx. 40-storeys), as shown within the orange area on the Building Height Map below

Pickering Town Centre (PTC) lands:

  • Permit the following increases in the maximum permitted building height on a portion of the PTC lands:
    • from 47 metres (approx. 15-storeys) to 155 metres (approx. 50-storeys) for one building, as shown within the red area on the Building Height Map below
    • from 47 metres (approx. 15-storeys) to 125 metres (approx. 40-storeys), as shown within the yellow area on the Building Height Map below
    • from 77 metres (approx. 25-storeys) to 125 metres (approx. 40-storeys), as shown within the orange area on the Building Height Map below

The joint venture initiative between the City and OPB Reality Inc. includes a new Central Library, Arts Centre, Seniors and Youth Centre, and various mixed-use high density residential buildings ranging in height between 9-storeys and 40-storeys, except for one landmark signature building having a maximum height of 50-storeys.
