On September 13, 2016, the City Planning Division received an application to establish a new Secondary Plan for the University of Toronto St. George Campus area. This new plan would replace the existing University of Toronto Secondary Plan for the campus that was adopted in 1997. The policies of the Secondary Plan would apply to the lands generally bounded by Bloor Street West to the north, Spadina Avenue to the west, College Street to the south and an irregular boundary generally running along Bay Street to the east.
The purpose of the proposal is to provide an updated policy framework that would manage change and guide new development in the area. The proposal is organized around three main objectives for the lands:
- Conserving and protecting cultural heritage resources
- Enhancing and expanding the public realm
- Identifying opportunities for new development
City staff are currently reviewing the application submitted by the University of Toronto.
