City of Toronto – Design Guidelines: Mid-Rise Buildings
The City of Toronto is updating the Mid-Rise rear transition performance standards in the Zoning Bylaw and Urban Design Guidelines. Let us know what you think! Register for the Public Consultation meetings taking place on September 20, 2023.
On June 1, 2023, the Planning and Housing Committee adopted recommendations to consult on the Mid-Rise Buildings Rear Transition Performance Standards Review & Draft Update.
The Mid-Rise Buildings Rear Transition Performance Standards Review & Draft Update provided draft updates to the rear transition performance standards for mid-rise buildings. The focused review of these Performance Standards identified that providing flexibility in the rear transition of mid-rise buildings to adjoining areas creates additional opportunities to further facilitate development of mid-rise buildings. Further facilitating development in a mid-rise building form will support increased housing supply in walkable, complete communities, while providing a wider range of housing options to address current housing challenges without compromising the needs of future generations.
