Union Station District Plan
The Union Station Heritage Conservation District (HCD) study is a component of the broader Union Station District Urban Design Study, which was initiated by the City Planning Division as a component of the Union Station Master Plan.
ERA Architects was retained as part of the team conducting the Union Station District Study, which included the Union Station HCD study. This process involved examining the heritage character of the area, developing district guidelines to be incorporated into a District Plan, and undertaking a process of public consultation.
A series of advertised public forums were held on October 25, 2005, December 13, 2005 and February 21, 2006 as opportunities for the public and property owners to review and comment on the study as it proceeded.
The District Plan recommends designation of the study area as a Heritage Conservation District under Part V of the Ontario Heritage Act. It is to be used by the City and property owners as a tool to strengthen and protect the significant heritage character of the Union Station Precinct.
The District Plan, as posted below, will be considered by the Toronto Preservation Board at its meeting:
