Will Quayside be a place where normal municipal by-laws and planning rules do not apply?

If Waterfront Toronto’s evaluation of the MIDP proposal results in a decision by our Board of Directors to continue to next steps, it’s just an endorsement of the proposal or elements of the proposal.

Waterfront Toronto does not have planning approval authority, which means that the municipal approval process still applies. Should the MIDP be endorsed in whole or in part, it will be subject to all municipal by-law and zoning regulations, and will have to also comply with all provincial and federal laws and standards. There may be certain elements of the plan that require working with governments on changes or modifications to existing regulatory frameworks, such as the Ontario Building Code as it relates to tall timber.
