The King-Spadina Plan

A new planning framework for the King-Spadina Plan area was enacted by City Council in 1996 to attract investment for a broad range of uses in a manner that reinforces the historic built form of the area.

The firm of The Planning Partnership was retained in the fall of 2005 to complete a focused review of the King-Spadina Secondary Plan. The purpose of the review was to address specific issues that have emerged in the area that are challenging the planning framework. The study document is structured in four parts, which you can download as PDF files:

Part One: Background
Provides an overview of changes to the area since 1996, with a particular focus on the issue of nightclubs.
Part Two: Review of Community Facilities
Examines existing and identifies proposed community facilities within and near the Plan area.
Part Three: Public Realm Plan
Recommends improvements to the public realm - the streets, sidewalks, lanes, parks and publicly accessible open spaces.
Part Four: Built Form
Confirms the continued relevance of the built form objectives of the Plan to protect and enhance the physical character of the area, and recommends necessary conditions to consider proposals for buildings that do not meet the current planning framework for the area.
