An exciting opportunity to create a vibrant community-focused lakeside precinct

Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback during this consultation. The project team are currently reviewing all feedback received and a report will be prepared for Council consideration in September.

We've listened to feedback from our community through consultation, as well as considered a review of the best use of 4 Bath Street and 1B Victory Row in line with our Sustainability Policy Review, to inform a plan for the site.

The lakeside precinct off Bath Street will be a diverse and dynamic foreshore celebrated for its versatility and open space. A new small-scale building will facilitate social connections through food and beverage offerings and complementary public uses.

*Inspirational imagery

*Indicative concept plan

Taking inspiration from its scenic lakeside location and adjacent 5ha of foreshore, the proposed precinct will feature indoor and outdoor dining opportunities, as well as pedestrian access improvements and new car parking. Alongside the flexible food and beverage options is the potential for complementary small business uses such as recreational equipment hire.

Benefits of the new lakeside precinct off Bath Street include:

  • 5ha of foreshore public open space
  • Better access and views of the lake
  • A widened and upgraded foreshore shared pathway for walking and cycling
  • Opportunity for casual lakeside dining, boutique functions and pop-up community events
  • An enhanced worker and visitor experience.

    I understand that the Tinto Cafe is on Community Land is that correct? WW

    westlakewrens Asked about 1 month ago

    Thanks for your interest in this project. That is correct, Tinto’s Cafe provides food and beverage offerings to the community. The proposal we are seeking community feedback on seeks to provide additional offerings in addition to food and beverage. Reclassification to Community Land threatens the viability of the proposal. The proposal is consistent with the current Operational Land classification.

    Regards,

    Will a shared user path (similar to the one constructed from Speers point to warners bay/ Elebana - including boardwalk) be constructed for this side of the lake? When will the master plan showing any shared user paths be available for community feedback?

    TKD Asked about 1 month ago

    Thanks for your interest in this project. This consultation is seeking community feedback specifically on a proposal for a small-scale commercial premises at 4 Bath Street and 1B Victory Row as opposed to the broader Toronto Foreshore Master Plan. 

    We are currently developing a concept master plan for Toronto Foreshore (encompassing the proposal for Bath St) , based on the input we have received from the community to date.  We will be seeking feedback from the community on the concept plan(s) in late 2020.  

    Regards,

    When will a decision be made on which option will be taken for the new lakeside precinct off Bath Street?

    Julie TIckle Asked about 1 month ago

    Hi Julie,

    Thank you for your question. This consultation is seeking community feedback on a proposal for a small-scale commercial premises at 4 Bath Street and 1B Victory Row. This proposal is based on the outcome of the Sustainability Review and feedback received from the community in previous consultations regarding the site. If this proposal is supported by the community and endorsed by Council at its meeting in September, we will proceed with a detailed design for the site, in line with what has been presented to the community. 

    Regards,

    A good idea but before unqualified support can be given I Need to see a site plan; more detailed drawings; more photos/images; a plan showing how the area will link with nearby places such as the old railway station, the rest of the foreshore, RMYC, Victory Parade, Bath Street etc. I also would like to know how big the car park will be and what zoning the precinct will carry going forward. And will there be parking and access and facilities for disabled and special needs people ?

    Thank you for your question and interest in this project. At this stage we are seeking community feedback on the proposal for the site. The indicative concept plan has now been added to the project page. If this proposal is supported by the community and endorsed by Council at its meeting in September, we will proceed with a detailed design for the site, in line with what has been presented to the community. The community will have the opportunity to comment on this at that time. The site will remain as operational land, as this provides flexibility for small-scale food, beverage and complementary offerings now and into the future.

    Why the continual harassment of the people of Toronto when you have nothing of substance to add to the project. Why do otherwise healthy old people lose the will to live ?

    This entry is Dated 28th September 2019 my question is how long can an Oganisation take to complete a property Portfolio and Substainability Policy, I know we have had some shut down time but my inquiries yielded that all Council Staff have still be Employed and working,

    Bruce Fitzgerald Asked 3 months ago

    Hi Bruce,

    Thank you for your interest in this project. I can advise that Council staff are still working through both the Property Portfolio and Sustainability Policy review. Once this has been completed, we will be in a better position to update the community on when the next round of consultation will occur.

    Regards,

    Luke
