Downsview Park looking over plans for 650 housing units
November 21, 2010
Toronto Star


A rendition of Downsview Park, which is mulling over proposals from developers to build housing on the south side of the site.

Downsview Park is mulling over proposals from developers to build housing to pay for the park itself.

The federal crown corporation has received submissions for about 650 units of housing on an 11-acre site in the Stanley Greene neighbourhood on the south side of the former military base.

When the base closing was announced in 1994, Ottawa said it wanted to see a self-financing national urban park developed on the site.

To do that, the plan is to sell or lease 223 acres for development around the perimeter of the base to bring in enough money to build a 349-acre park.

Residents say the plan calls for more development than the area can easily absorb and the North York Community Council has put off dealing with the file.

A frustrated park board has applied to take the latest plan — put together by city planning staff — to the Ontario Municipal Board, bypassing the community council, said park chair David Soknacki, a former city councillor.

“We don’t have confidence that it will be dealt with in a timely manner,” Soknacki said. “It’s very frustrating to have one public body, us, appealing to another public body, the OMB, because we can’t get a decision out of a third public body.”

A municipal board hearing could begin by late spring.

Last June, consideration of the project’s merits was deferred indefinitely by the community council, chaired by Councillor Maria Augimeri, whose ward includes the former base.

Soknacki said the park had reached an agreement with residents on development of the Stanley Greene neighbourhood but wasn’t able to present it at the June community council.

Delaying development means delaying the park, he said.

“Not only the federal government but the wider community is very frustrated at the lack of progress because we don’t have a park. Enough is enough. We want to proceed.”

The proposals being studied are for an initial phase that would see about 29 single family homes built along a new road, plus about 628 units in buildings up to five storeys high.

Another 700 units are planned to be developed later in the Stanley Greene neighbourhood, meaning a total of 1,356 units would be built on 64 acres in the area, just east of Keele St. and north of Wilson Ave.

It’s too much, Augimeri said.

“The new plan that they want to work on calls for about 1,300 apartment dwellings, which the community does not support,” she said.

Soknacki, however, said the park is willing to be flexible.

“We’re not opposed if somebody comes in and says they can do just as good a job with townhomes or lower built forms.”

New home sales climb in GTA
23 November 2010
The Toronto Star

Strong condominium sales in October have kept the Greater Toronto Area new home market on par with last year's near record pace.

Sales of new housing hit 4,535 units last month, up by 0.6 per cent from the same time last year according to figures released by the Building, Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) on Monday. The positive figure is a major rebound from September, when sales were down by 32 per cent.

The October numbers are the best such result for the month since 2000, according to BILD.

Most of the bounce is due to continued strong high rise sales, with seven out of ten homes sold in October being a condo.

High rise sales were up by 27 per cent, while low rise sales were down by 32 per cent.

"Clearly investors are still active in the property market," said housing analyst Will Dunning. "It remains to be seen how this will all play out."

Some analysts say there are too many high rise buildings going up.

But some empty nesters, particularly from areas such as China which are extremely active in the Toronto market, may not be as sensitive to local market conditions and are looking for long term appreciation, said Dunning.

While the city of Toronto accounted for most of the condo sales at 76 per cent, the largest percentage spikes were in the 905 suburbs such as Mississauga and York Region.

The more affordable condominium sector has taken off because low rise homes have been priced out of the reach of many buyers. Investors meanwhile, continue to be attracted to the relative stability of the Toronto market.

There is a $75,000 difference between high rise asking prices at $424,327 and low rise prices which surpassed the half million dollar mark for the first time in October, hitting $500,532.

Overall, new home sales are running 15.5 per cent ahead of 2009 on a year to date basis. However, sales are not expected to continue to outperform.

A forecast by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. says that a weaker 2011 is expected especially in comparison to the already softening resale market.

Airport tunnel impact minimal, residents told
Toronto Star
November 30, 2010

Noise, traffic and the energy cost of operating elevators that would whisk passengers to a proposed pedestrian tunnel connecting Toronto’s mainland to the island airport are on the minds of waterfront residents concerned about the $50 million project.

There will be one to two trucks an hour transporting excavation waste from the tunnel site near the foot of Bathurst St. during construction, which is expected to start next year, Don McKinnon, who coordinated an environmental assessment, told a public meeting Tuesday night.

The meeting was convened by the Toronto Port Authority to solicit feedback on the environmental assessment. It found that, apart from a temporary increase in dust and noise while the 123-metre tunnel is dug beneath Lake Ontario, there will be no lasting impact on traffic, noise or the natural features of the area.

One resident asked for a promise that trucks wouldn’t use Stadium Rd. — arguably the most direct route from the construction zone to Lake Shore Blvd. — because many families with small children live nearby.

“They will be directed not to use Stadium Rd.,” said Ken Lundy, director of infrastructure, planning and environment for the port authority.

Lundy described the purpose of the tunnel as “very simple.” The primary reason is to improve access to the airport, where passenger traffic has increased from 25,000 people a year to 1.2 million since Porter Airlines began flying out of Billy Bishop City Centre Airport.

Air Canada and Continental were also recently awarded landing slots.

The port authority contends a tunnel will be more efficient in getting passengers to the airport rather than having them wait at the foot of Bathurst St. for a ferry that runs every 15 minutes.

Councillor Adam Vaughan (Trinity-Spadina), who was also at the meeting, questioned how the plan’s proponents can be certain a tunnel will be faster when they can’t yet say how many passengers the elevators to the tunnel will hold.

Many residents were annoyed that hard copies of the environmental assessment report were not available at the meeting. The report is on the port authority’s website.

Another public consultation is set for Jan. 12.

1.2 million passengers/year? That's a lot more than I expected. With the tunnel and the arrival of 2 new carriers, I wouldn't be surprised to see that figure double or triple in the coming years. Is the runway long enough to handle larger jets? It would be wonderful if this turned into a good mid-sized airport handling about 15 million passengers 20 years down the road.

I doubt the runway can take larger jets. But then, the Islands residents would probably complain so loud the extra flights could never take off.

Is a turboprop quieter than a jet? Do the airlines need permission to fly certain planes by the airport authority or is it only dictated by the ability of an airport to handle the plane used?

It would be nice if they could at least use the C Series that Bombardier is planning on building. Those will be 100 - 130 seats, I think.

Sorry, I can't seem to find it anywhere here... but does anyone know what that "CONCERT" dig behind City Hall is? A new tower? I drove past it today but there's little info at the site.

The only dig behind City Hall that I'm aware of is a residential building under construction. I believe they will be rental rather than condominiums.

I thought the Island Airport restricts the hours when planes can come in / out rather than by plane type. Meanwhile, the runway length dictates what types of planes cannot use the airport.

People say that U of T residence is out of scale with the street but the building across from it is already kinda big, U of T could just fill the area south of college with towers that big and re-define the scale =P

The building across the street is about 14 storeys. It's the tallest in the immediate area but there's a big difference between 42 and 14.

The area south of College is filled with Victorians. U of T may be a powerful school but people have a right of where they want to live and whom to sell their property to. The city ultimately chooses whether to allow a development or not. Btw, this 42 storey proposal has already been denied in its current form.
