The City is undertaking an Avenue Study to update the existing policy framework for Site and Area Specific Policy Area (SASP) 21, located along Lake Shore Boulevard West from Brown’s Line to Dwight Avenue. The Avenue Study will assess the built form, streetscape and public realm through extensive community consultation and technical review to evaluate existing conditions and develop a vision for the study area. The study recommendations for updating the area-specific planning framework and guidelines will inform future development and public realm improvements.

The study area covers approximately four kilometres of Lake Shore Boulevard West, between Brown’s Line to Dwight Avenue. This study area is generally consistent with the existing Site and Area Specific Policy (SASP) 21 area and mostly includes properties that front onto Lake Shore Boulevard West. SASP 23, on the north side of Lake Shore Boulevard West between Brown’s Line and Thirty Third Street, is included in the study area, but is identified as an area that is subject to a more fulsome study in the future.

Two areas along this segment of Lake Shore Boulevard West are not included within the study area. One area is located on the north side of Lake Shore Boulevard West, between Fourteenth Street and Ninth Street, which has been redeveloped in association with SASP 9. The second area that is not included in the study area is located on the south side of Lake Shore Boulevard West, between Twenty Third Street to Thirteenth Street, which is comprised of Humber College lands and City of Toronto lands in association with SASP 22.

Lake Shore Boulevard West Avenue Study area boundary from Fortieth Street to Dwight Avenue, generally consistent with the existing Site and Area Specific Policy Area 21 boundary.
