Park Space

A significant component of the proposals is the creation of a public park that will be approximately 800 square metres in size and located along the southern portion of the site. This park will be dedicated to the City to meet parkland dedication requirements for the proposed new buildings. Access to the park will be provided by a surface path system (privately owned, publicly accessible) that will connect the park to the existing and proposed buildings and public realm along Steeles Avenue West. The western portion of the Subject Lands will be redesigned with enhanced outdoor amenity space that will be used by residents of the proposed and existing building. When completed the public park will become an added benefit to the community and a focal point for local residents.
