In June 2017, the City Planning Division received an Official Plan Amendment application to permit the redevelopment of the Agincourt Mall lands with a mix of land uses, including residential, retail, office, community facility space, and a new public park.
Given the complexity and size of this development application, the City of Toronto is launching its own Planning Framework Review to guide and inform its recommendations on the application and the surrounding area. The Agincourt Mall Planning Framework Review will look at ways to manage future growth of the mall lands and the surrounding area to create a vibrant and complete community.
The goal of the Agincourt Mall Planning Framework Review is to establish a vision for the development site and the surrounding area supported by strategies to guide land use, building heights and densities, affordable housing, parks and open spaces, streets and blocks, improvements to existing transportation systems, servicing infrastructure and community services and facilities.
The review will be conducted over 4 phases with the following themes: Establishing a Vision; Generating Ideas; Testing & Confirming Ideas; Synthesis & Report. The length of each phase is determinant on the nature of the iterative review process.
Each phase will be complemented by public engagement components, including Public Open Houses, Planners in Public Spaces (PiPS), a design charette, Local Advisory and Technical Advisory Committee Meetings, presentations to the Design Review Panel, and other public events as required.
The Study is currently in Phase 3: Test & Confirm Ideas
