88 Queen Street East - Public Art Plan

This item will be considered by Toronto and East York Community Council on October 14, 2021. It will be considered by City Council on November 9, 2021, subject to the actions of the Toronto and East York Community Council.

Introduction

Occupying an entire city block in Toronto's bustling downtown, the Development at 88 Queen Street East will feature four residential buildings, a public park, a POPS office and a series of mews lined with cafes, restaurants, and shops.

Due to the scale of the project, the construction has been separated into two phases. Phase One was completed in 2020 and built up the northern section of the Site known as Parcel A. This area now contains a 28-storey mixed-use tower with a seven-storey podium with retail uses at grade and a public park with an impactful public art wall by celebrated American artist Barbara Kasten.

Phase Two (the southern half of the Site) is currently under construction. It, too, has been divided into phases. Phase Two-A includes the middle section of the Site with two purpose-built rental towers owned by Fitzrovia Real Estate Inc. Phase Two-B is the final piece of the Development. It encompasses the southern quarter of the Site. Phase TwoB proposes a 51-storey mixed-use building with a 6-storey podium and the completion of the internal pedestrian square and mews. Phase Two-B is the subject of this Public Art Plan.

As part of the Section 37 Community Benefits related to the amendments to the zoning by law, the owner has committed to offering a financial contribution of $1,500,000.00 towards Public Art.

Please just chop up all those retail units put some patios out in that square! It's perfect for this.
