Summary
At its meeting on May 23, 24 and 25, 2006 City Council adopted as amended Report 4, Clause 7, from Toronto and East York Community Council to amend Zoning By-law No. 998-88 (as amended by By-law No. 74-93 and by By-law No. 1994-0605) of the former City of Toronto, to permit, among other things, the development of the Bay Adelaide North tower at 40 Temperance Street as a 33-storey office building with a 10-storey podium. The site is bounded by Richmond Street West to the north, Cloud Gardens Park to the east, Temperance Street to the south, and existing commercial uses (353-359 Bay Street) to the west.

In lieu of making a Public Realm Improvements Contribution the owner (BAC Surface Inc.) entered into a Section 45(9) Agreement with the City to design and construct improvements to Cloud Garden Park and Temperance Street in addition to its Site Plan Approval obligations. The total cost of these additional improvements not to exceed an amount equal to the Public Realm Improvements Contribution and the amount of the Cloud Gardens Reinstatement Estimate.

The Owner's consultants and City staff worked collaboratively to prepare and finalize the design. Due to cost escalations greater than estimated in 2019 (pre-COVID) as a result of inflation, supply chain impacts and labour shortages the tender prices for the works are ~$2.265 million (net of Harmonized Sales Tax recoveries and fees) above the Owner's obligation. Supply chain issues have not all been resolved and some modifications to the design may be required.

This Motion requests authority from Council to amend both Transportation Services and Parks, Forestry and Recreation's 2022-2031 Council Approved Capital Budgets and Plans for projects to implement construction and related costs associated with streetscape improvements on Temperance Street from Yonge Street to Bay Street and improvements to Cloud Gardens Park, fully funded by Section 37 and 45 (Planning Act Reserve Fund) community benefits that have been received and are eligible for these purposes. Authority is also required to enter into the necessary Agreements with the owner (BAC Surface Inc.) and to transfer funds to complete the work on behalf of the City.

Is it strange that they didn't use the Scotiabank logo - just the word mark?
I can see that they probably wanted to balance the Deloitte sign with the word mark, but they omitted the logo.
