Proposal

The City has received a revised submission in support of a Zoning By-law Amendment Application (A 08/20) submitted by Steele Valley Developments Ltd., 334979 Ontario Ltd., Pickering Square Inc., and Pickering Square (1986) Inc.

The application proposes to facilitate the development of three separate properties municipally known as 1300 Kingston Road, 1360 Kingston Road, and 1550 Kingston Road (see Location Map).. The applicants are requesting an amendment to Zoning By-law 7553/17, as amended, to facilitate a mixed-use development on the sites. Below is a summary of the initial proposal and the proposed changes.

1300 and 1360 Kingston Road

The original proposal included a total of nine buildings consisting of four residential buildings ranging in heights between 12 and 15 storeys and five mixed-use buildings with heights of 25 storeys each. Also proposed were 4 blocks of stacked townhouses having heights of 3 ½  storeys. This proposal also included a request to increase the maximum permitted tower floor plates and podium heights, and reduce the minimum building setback to zero metres along Kingston Road. In addition, the applicants requested the removal of the “H1” Holding symbol, which requires that a full block development plan be submitted and approved. Vehicular access was to be provided from a new east-west public road located along the north end of the site.

The revised proposal maintains a total of nine buildings consisting of three 12-storey residential buildings, one 15-storey residential building, one 29-storey residential building, 2 residential buildings with heights of 25 and 27 storeys each connected by a 6-storey mixed-use podium, and two residential buildings having heights of 27 and 29 storeys connected by a 6-storey mixed-use podium. The key change to the revised proposal includes increasing proposed building heights for one building from 25-storeys to 27-storeys and two buildings from 25-storeys to 29-storeys. The number of stacked townhouse blocks has been reduced from 4 blocks to 3 blocks. The applicant is no longer requesting amendments to increase the maximum permitted tower floor plates and podium heights; will maintain the required building setback to Kingston Road and will not remove the “H1” Holding symbol on the subject lands.

1450 Kingston Road:

The original proposal included two mixed-use buildings ranging in heights between 12 and 15 storeys, and proposed vehicular access from Glenview Road. This proposal also included a request to increase the maximum permitted tower floor plates and podium heights, and reduce the minimum building setback to zero metres along Kingston Road.

The applicant has removed this property from the rezoning application and therefore is not requesting any further change to Zoning By-law 7553/17 at this time. Any future development of this property will be in accordance with the current zoning requirements. The proposed vehicular driveway on Glendale Road has also been removed. 

1550 Kingston Road:

The original proposal included a total of 4 buildings consisting of two residential towers with heights of 16 storeys each connected by a 5-storey mixed-use podium and two 22-storey residential towers connected by a 12-storey mixed-use podium. Four blocks of 3 ½ storey townhouses were also proposed along the north portion of the site. The proposal included a request to be exempt from the height requirement to provide a 45-degree angular plane adjacent to the dwellings located at 1899 to 1903 Valley Farm Road. This proposal also included a request to increase the maximum permitted tower floor plates and podium heights, and reduce building setbacks to zero metres along Kingston Road.

The revised proposal maintains a total of 4 buildings consisting of one residential tower at 12 storeys in height, one residential tower at 27 storeys in height, and two residential towers at 14 storeys and 23 storeys in height connected by a 6-storey mixed-use podium. The key change to the revised proposal includes increasing proposed building heights for one building from 22 storeys to 23 storeys and one building from 16 storeys to 27 storeys. The applicant is no longer requesting amendments to increase the maximum permitted tower floor plates and podium heights and will maintain the required setback to Kingston Road. The proposal now meets the requirement to provide a 45-degree angular plane adjacent to residential dwellings.
