  • Public Meeting Upper Canada Mall Master Plan OPA

    Created: Friday, June 04, 2021


    Official Plan Amendment

    17600 Yonge Street – Upper Canada Mall Master Plan

    Applicant: Oxford Properties Retail Holdings Inc. 

    File Number: D09NP1908

    Take notice that the Council of the Corporation of the Town of Newmarket will hold an electronic Public Meeting on:               Monday, June 21st, 2021 at 1:00 PM

    By way of an electronic meeting using video conferencing (Zoom) to consider a proposed Official Plan Amendment under Section 17 of the Planning Act, RSO 1990, c. P. 13, as amended.

    The purpose of this amendment is to update the Secondary Plan policies with a Master Plan for the subject lands. The proposed Master Plan will guide the future long-term development of the lands surrounding the Mall.  The applicant is proposing to put into effect a Master Plan that has been prepared for the subject lands, in accordance with Section 5.3.4 of the Urban Centres Secondary Plan. 

    In planning for future growth and expansion, the proposed Master Plan will guide the future long-term development of the lands surrounding the Upper Canada Mall. While the Upper Canada Mall will continue to exist as planned, this Master Plan proposes to add, in phases, mixed use land uses of varying densities and heights, approximately 5,100 residential units, 9,700 square meters of non-residential Gross Floor Area (GFA), a new road system, approximately 4,500 parking spaces above/below ground and approximately 1.8ha of new public parks. 

    Future development of the site is proposed to occur following the approval of the OPA through subsequent planning applications including those for draft plan of subdivision, rezoning(s) and site plan approvals.
