Status Report - Official Plan Amendment Application - 2900 Steeles Avenue East at Don Mills Road in the Town of Markham
City Council Decision

City Council on May 11 and 12, 2010, adopted the following:

 

1.         City Council direct the City Clerk to notify the Town of Markham and the Region of York of the City Council comments regarding the application to amend the Official Plan of the Town of Markham at 2900 Steeles Avenue East at Don Mills Road in the Town of Markham as set out in Recommendation Nos. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 of the report (April 6, 2010) from the Director, Community Planning, North York District, in response to the Public Meeting under the Planning Act scheduled for May 4, 2010.

 

2.         City Council advise the Town of Markham that the subject application should be amended to:

 

a.         reduce the proposed gross density on the site to a maximum of 1.0 times coverage and a maximum of 400 residential units and no increase in this density shall be permitted until construction has begun on the Don Mills LRT or similar major public transportation improvements;

 

b.         redistribute development and the mix of uses over the entire subject site so that more of the development is closer to transit services and better defines and frames Steeles Avenue and Don Mills Road;

 

c.         reduce the maximum height of all building to no more than 6 storeys, the height of the neighbouring residential buildings to the south; and

 

d.         reflect a built form where the buildings fronting onto Steeles Ave. E., Don Mills Road and along the north property line have a one or two storey podium at grade and be tiered away from the perimeter of the development to minimize the impact on the lands in Toronto designated Neighbourhoods located south of Steeles Avenue East and the neighbouring residential communities to the west and north of the site.

 

3.         City Council advise the Town of Markham that Steeles Avenue East in this location has been identified for streetscape improvements including maximizing the landscaping opportunities on the existing median and any negotiations regarding Section 37 of the Planning Act related to this development should include consideration of the use of such funds for Steeles Avenue streetscape improvements.

 

4.         City Council request the Town of Markham to secure the parcel of lands located at the northwest corner of the property, “Future Building G” – phase 7, as parklands.

 

5.         City Council request the Town of Markham to have the storm water drainage plan amended as the Functional Servicing Report depicts approximately 65% of this entire developments storm water be discharged into the existing City of Toronto storm sewer.  The City of Toronto has identified this area as a problematic area subject to flooding.  Many homes in this area were flooded in the August, 2005 storm.  The drainage plan shall be amended to not permit storm water from those major events to travel to the south, and shall be contained on the site.

 

6.         City Council advise the Town of Markham that:

 

a.         this area is prone to flooding.  The Functional Servicing Report depicts the removal of the two existing storm service connections on Steeles Ave., and the installation of two new storm connections to the City of Toronto storm sewer.  City staff do not have the authority to approve the installations of new service connections to accommodate development outside of the limits of the City of Toronto; and

 

b.         as the York Durham Sewer System (YDSS), the sanitary sewer system, currently has capacity constrains and the Shops on Steeles Avenue do not have allocation for the proposed additional residential development,  the residential portion of this plan should not proceed until this site has been allocated sufficient servicing allocation from the YDSS.   No sewer installations or modifications of any kind shall be permitted within the Steeles Ave. corridor for this development.

 

7.         City Council request the Town of Markham to request that the applicant provide further information to the City of Toronto on:

 

a.         the Traffic Impact Study and addendum dated August 2009 as contained in the Technical Services letter dated November 2, 2009 and contained in Attachment No. 7 to the report (April 6, 2010) from the Director, Community Planning, North York District; and

 

b.         the Functional Servicing Report and addendum dated August 2009 as contained in the Technical Services letter dated November 2, 2009 and contained in Attachment No.7 to the report (April 6, 2010) from the Director, Community Planning, North York District.

 

8.         City Council direct Planning Staff to report to North York Community Council on any further revisions to the subject application.

2.         City Council authorize the City Solicitor to make such stylistic and technical changes to the draft Zoning By-law Amendment as may be required.

 

3.         City Council direct the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning to consider the redesignation of the Provincial Campus from Mixed Use Areas to Institutional Areas within the context of the five-year municipal comprehensive review of the City’s Official Plan.

 

4.         City Council require the Province to fund and/or provide the identified transportation network/road improvements as outlined in the Technical Services Memorandum dated April 19, 2010 (Attachment 6 to the report dated April 19, 2010 from the Director, Community Planning, North York District), at no cost to the City of Toronto.

 

5.         City Council require the Province to develop and implement, within 12 months of the enactment of the By-law, in conjunction with City staff and the assistance of a TDM consultant, a TDM strategy/plan that would minimize the impact of the proposed campus’ trip generation and parking by implementing a strategic plan with a focus on multi-modal transportation planning, demand management program, and stakeholder outreach.

 

6.         City Council require the Province to appoint a permanent full time on-site Transportation Demand Management (TDM) coordinator to manage, monitor and implement the approved TDM strategy for the entire Provincial Campus.

 

7.         To address the requirement for sustainable transportation impact mitigation measures, including better transit accessibility and connectivity, City Council require the Province to provide $250,000 to the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) to fund the procurement of a consultant to work with the TTC, City staff and the Province to prepare a feasibility study for a potential bus rapid transit route along:

 

 i.         Keele Street – from the proposed Finch West and/or Sheppard West subway stations on the Toronto-York Spadina Subway Extension; or

 

ii.         Wilson Avenue – from the Wilson subway station.

 

8.         City Council determine that since the applicant is ORC acting on behalf of the Province of Ontario, the City’s standard requirements for indemnification, and financial security in the form of letters of credit and deposits will not be required, but that the following requirements will be imposed on the approval of the Draft Plan of Subdivision for the Provincial Campus, or any related municipal infrastructure or other servicing agreements as may be required by the City:

 

i.          all development, and any new municipal infrastructure and relocated municipal infrastructure, will be constructed in accordance with the City’s standards;

 

ii.         enhanced insurance will be provided, to the satisfaction of the City’s Manager of Insurance and Risk Management; and

10.       City Council require the Province to prepare a public art plan costing not less than 1/2 percent for public art excluding Block 2, which represents a 50 percent reduction in the City’s Standard Public Art Contribution Policy, in consultation with City staff which sets out an artist selection process, implementation protocol, installation phasing plan and includes the necessary capital facilities, operating and maintenance budget(s).  The public art plan will be completed prior to the final approval of the Site Plan by the Director, Community Planning, North York District, for the Humber River Regional Hospital.

 

11.       City Council direct the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning, to consult with appropriate City Divisions and the Province to determine the feasibility of locating a municipal public facility within the Provincial Campus.

 

12.       City Council determine that the development of the lands at 1201 Wilson Avenue  would not set a precedent for the ‘Avenue’ segment in which it is located, will not adversely impact the adjacent Neighbourhoods and is partially supportable by available infrastructure and therefore can proceed prior to the completion of an Avenue study.

 

13.       City Council direct that any parking structure located above-ground at 1201 Wilson Avenue shall be subject to design control as permitted under the City of Toronto Act and shall be subject to review by the City's design review panel.

 15.       City Council direct the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning, to continue discussions with Humber River Regional Hospital, the Province and relevant City Divisions and report directly to the June 8, 2010 meeting of City Council, on the following:

 

            i.        the request for the additional 60,500 m2 of gross floor area for the hospital site;

 17.      City Council direct the Chief Planner and Executive Director, City Planning, in consultation with the General Manager, Transportation Services, to report directly to City Council at its meeting of June 8, 2010 on the effects of the Provincial Campus on the transportation network to the south of Highway 401, including an analysis of the transportation network/road improvements necessary to facilitate access to the campus.
