4050 Yonge Development Approvals
2010 - Present
Urban Strategies was retained by the Easton’s Group to assist in the development approvals process for the property at 4050 Yonge Street in Toronto. Since 2010, Urban Strategies has been working with Build Toronto, the former owner of the site, to transform an existing surface parking lot into an office building. Easton’s Group purchased the property from Build Toronto in early 2015. Since that time, Urban Strategies has been involved in securing the rezoning and site plan approvals for a 480,000 square feet mixed-use office, hotel and retail complex. The proposed 7-storey office and 9-storey hotel development responds to the surrounding mid-rise context and presents an opportunity to introduce a landmark building at the important intersection of Yonge and York Mills. The building features a LEED Gold design, a direct connection to the York Mills subway station, a 36,000 square feet green roof, 18 electric vehicle charging stations, and the restoration of the West Don River ravine lands.
Urban Strategies has been responsible for preparing an updated Planning Rationale report and other application materials, and has managed the overall planning approvals process. Urban Strategies has worked closely with the client team, a range of sub-consultants, City staff and the TRCA to coordinate all submission materials and ensure all circulation comments have been addressed.
