The recommended zoning by-law for Midtown Apartment Neighbourhoods-designated lands was adopted by City Council on February 7, 2024.

The Yonge-Eglinton area – commonly referred to as Midtown – has been experiencing rapid growth. The City Planning Division, at the direction of City Council, is undertaking a review of the zoning in the Midtown area and advancing an Infrastructure Implementation Strategy. The zoning review will align and update existing zoning to reflect the Yonge-Eglinton Secondary Plan (OPA 405), the City’s Official Plan and provincial policy. It will address land use, building heights and other matters that shape development and buildings. The Implementation Strategy will assist the City in securing and delivering improvements to community facilities, parks, the public realm, local transportation, sewers and watermains so that the area grows and evolves as a complete community.
