Loblaws Redevelopment (Dundas/Bloor)

Choice Properties REIT, the owner of the Loblaw site at 2280 Dundas St West, the south-east corner of Dundas Street West and Bloor Street West, is looking to submit an application to redevelop the site with a mixed-use development including residential, commercial, employment and community uses, a City park, new streets and potential relocation of the high school.

In order to understand what the community envisions for this site before the application is formally submitted, City Planning staff, together with my office, hosted round table discussions which focussed on key themes such as Built Form and Use, Public Realm and Sustainability.

The December 11 & 12, 2017 Planning staff presentation can be found here: https://goo.gl/oLhKfQ .

Attached is the brainstorming questions booklet. Answers to brainstorming questions can be sent to Joanna_Kimont@toronto.ca by March 9th, 2018.

If you have any questions, please contact Councillor Perk’s  office at 416-392-7919 or councillor_perks@toronto.ca .

Wabash Community Centre Update

Community Centre budget increases by $6 million
————————————————————
City Council votes February 12 on updated Wabash Centre budget

More planning details on the Wabash Community Centre (https://wabashbuildingsociety.wordpress.com/) have been released by the City as part of the 2018 Capital Budget process (https://www.toronto.ca/city-government/budget-finances/city-budget/) .

And a hint that a pool may be included in the planning discussions was released earlier in the City?s new Facilities Master Plan (https://www.toronto.ca/city-government/accountability-operations-customer-service/long-term-vision-plans-and-strategies/parks-forestry-recreation/parks-and-recreation-facilities-master-plan/) .

The Parks, Forestry and Recreation Capital Budget document, which every year must be approved by City Council (the next vote is February 12), recommends a $6 million increase in the project?s overall budget, from $34 million (approved last year) to $40 million, flowing over five years from now till 2022. The extra funding was added ?to account for program requirements and recent costs for construction.?

The budget recommends $413,000 in 2018 spending, primarily on preliminary design work, following a modest $30,000 expenditure in 2017.

In a related development, in November Council passed the Parks, Forestry and Recreation Facilities Master Plan (FMP), a document that analyzes current facilities, identifies gaps and trends, and lays the groundwork for the next 20 years of investment for the growing and changing city.

The FMP recommended that indoor pools be including in planning for 15 new or replacement community centres over the next 20 years. Wabash was on the list.

The new community centre will be located in Sorauren Park at the site of the old linseed oil mill. The non-profit Friends of Sorauren Park (https://soraurenpark.wordpress.com/about/) (incorporated as the Wabash Building Society) plans to hold community consultations in 2018 regarding design and construction plans for the new centre, which has been the subject of discussions for more than 25 years.
