File Types & Numbers
Draft Plan of Subdivision – SP-2021-02
Zoning By-law Amendment – A 15/21

OPB Realty Inc.

Property Location
Lands subject to the Zoning By-law Amendment includes:

  • City of Pickering lands on the south side of The Esplanade South between Glenanna Road and Valley Farm Road
  • A portion of the Pickering Town Centre (PTC) lands located on the west side of Glenanna Road south of Kingston Road

OPB Realty Inc. is proposing a phased redevelopment of the easterly portion of the PTC lands for a high-density mixed-use development with buildings ranging in height between 9 and 50 storeys. As part of this redevelopment, the City of Pickering and OPB Realty Inc., are proposing a new Central Library, a Performing Arts Centre, a Seniors & Youth Centre, and an enhanced public realm and open space system connecting all of the buildings and uses including City Hall.

The submitted Draft Plan of Subdivision for the PTC lands proposes 10 development blocks, 3 parkland blocks and a network of new internal public and private roads that will provide access to Glenanna Road. Refer to the submitted draft plan of subdivision attached to this notice.

The purpose of the Zoning By-law Amendment is to transfer the allowable Floor Space Index attributed to the proposed public roads within the PTC lands and on the City owned lands to the proposed development blocks on the PTC lands. In addition, the applicant is requesting site-specific amendments to reduce the minimum residential parking ratio, and adjust balcony requirements and amenity requirements for apartment buildings.
