GTA mayoral elections – who won and where they stand on housing

GTA mayoral elections – who won and where they stand on housing

John Tory

Housing policy, affordability and supply were among the key issues in many municipalities leading up to the Oct. 22 Ontario elections.

The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB), the Building Industry and Land Development Association (BILD) and others did their best to alert voters to the issues, and to gage candidates on how well they understood them.

Homes Publishing did its own assessment of a selection of GTA municipalities in the context of housing development.

But now that the results are in (well, most of them), let’s take a look how some of the notable races shook down, and the various policies of the newly elected mayors, with help from BILD.

 

AURORA

Tom Mrakas (New)
Housing and growth: Proposes to protect Aurora’s Stable Neighbourhoods from “monster home” infill, by using planning tools such as Interim Control By-laws. Also wants to ensure better land use planning decisions are made through the Local Appeals Body and by implementing a Design Review Panel. He intends to uphold the Official Plan and continue to oppose golf course redevelopment. Improving municipal infrastructure, through complete streets, is also a priority.
Taxes: Proposes to reduce the tax levy.

 

BRAMPTON

Patrick Brown (new)
Housing: Proposes to create a streamlined, more efficient approvals process at City Hall for new home construction and renovations across all levels of affordability. Proposes to develop a housing strategy that encourages neighbourhood-sensitive development of rooming houses, basement apartments and in-law suites.

 

BURLINGTON

Marianne Meed Ward (New)
Growth: Opposes overdevelopment of Burlington and will seek to control growth by reducing provisions in the Official Plan, as well as accept growth only when infrastructure can handle it.
Housing: Intends to secure affordable housing with inclusionary zoning and require new development to provide a percentage of senior-friendly units. Intends to set greenspace per population targets within reasonable walking distance through prioritizing parkland over cash-in-lieu for major new developments.

 

CALEDON

Allan Thompson
Housing and growth: Supports housing and growth management initiatives that will maintain the characteristics of Caledon’s communities and create opportunities for residents and future residents of live, work and retire.

 

EAST GWILLIMBURY

Virginia Hackson
Housing: Proposes to complete the first phase of growth of 7,000 homes. In terms of transportation corridors, plans to work with the Mayor of Bradford to solve gridlock on roads between Hwys. 404 and 400.
Infrastructure: Proposes to work with the Province and local MPP to deal with the delay of the Upper York Sewage Solution which will ultimately eliminate the Holland Landing Sewage Lagoons. Proposes to address the need for quality broadband in the community.

 

HALTON HILLS

Rick Bonnette
Housing: Proposes to continue to manage difficult conversations around intensification and growth the Province has mandated and the development residents are seeing.

 

KING CITY

Steve Pellegrini
Plans to focus on business growth, the new municipal office, the library and seniors centre expansion project, as well as road beautification in the township.

 

MISSISSAUGA

Bonnie Crombie
Housing: Intends to institute an Inclusionary Zoning policy to incentivize the building of new, affordable units. Proposes to form partnerships with leaders in affordable housing to get new buildings in the ground on a faster pace.
Environment: Proposes to work with staff to bolster Green building standards that will improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas and improve urban forest canopy.
Development: Supports Mississauga’s office for a Development Ambassador.

 

NEWMARKET

John Taylor

Environment: Proposes to focus on protecting greenspace and the environment and controlling growth.

Allowing secondary suites in existing homes will also create new housing once new by-laws that monitor the neighbourhoods are in place.

Growth: Proposes to preserve heritage that is integrated with future development. Integrating heritage built form into new developments as well as establishing Heritage Conservation Districts and site plan bylaws in heritage areas in town are identified a must.
Development: Within the first 100 days, hopes to assemble a meeting of commercial-industrial landowners to get everyone on the same page, about the 404 corridor and the servicing for the area going forward. Believes that these underserviced and underutilized lands represent about $1 billion in new tax assessment for Whitchurch-Stouffville.

Bringing exceptional innovative designs to Southern Ontario

With an incredible portfolio of over 3,500 homes in communities across Southern Ontario, Andrin Homes’ commitment to excellence has been at the cornerstone of their undisputed building success.

A testament to the company’s exceptional building standards, Andrin has produced a series of outstanding master-planned communities, creating beautiful homes that embrace the homebuyer’s every need through unsurpassed living environments.

Andrin will soon be releasing detached home communities in Milton and East Gwillimbury, as well as new incredible townhome communities in Aurora and Markham.

Due to their unprecedented success, Andrin is also scheduled to release future phases in the following communities: detached homes at Hillsborough (Holland Landing), townhomes at both Glenway (Newmarket) and Country Lane (Whitby), and condominiums at Tower Two (Kitchener).

PANORAMA

Andrin is excited to announce that the release for one of their most anticipated new detached/townhome communities, Panorama in Milton, is just around the corner.

As Canada’s fastest-growing community and preferred tourist destination, Milton attracts more than 1.5 million visitors each year. Nestled at the base of the Niagara Escarpment, Milton offers an abundance of parkland and trails including the Bruce Trail and the century-old Mill Pond in the heart of the historic downtown area. An ideal place to live, work and play, Milton has experienced a new residential and industrial growth unprecedented in Canada.

HILLSBOROUGH

With phase one and two successfully sold out, Andrin is also preparing to release the next phase of Holland Landing’s most coveted master-planned community, Hillsborough. A unique collection of detached homes on 38-, 40- and 45-foot lots, Hillsborough is uniquely surrounded by parks, nature reserves and conservation areas.

At the heart of the Hillborough is an incredible 10-acre community park featuring a baseball diamond, basketball courts, a playground, splash pads, ponds, sitting areas and a gazebo – all linked by pathways that are in and around the community.

GLENWAY

Newmarket’s premier townhome community, Glenway, is now under construction with the next phase expected to be released in 2018.

An exclusive collection of two and three-storey townhomes, the community is set on attractive, tree-lined streetscapes featuring luxuriously appointed interiors and meticulous craftsmanship.

COUNTRY LANE

Country Lane in Whitby represents a new style of the master-planned community with unique streetscapes, traffic calming roundabouts and meticulously designed homes, all set on 26-, 36- and 45-foot lots.

With Country Lane’s Phase One having been one of its most successful communities, Andrin cannot wait to introduce a new phase of townhomes to homebuyers in the upcoming year.

Country Lane is moments away from excellent schools, shopping, restaurants and recreation.

TOWER TWO CONDOMINIUMS

Tower Two sets a new standard for sustainable urban living with the introduction of Kitchener’s first LEED candidate residential condominium community.

With City Centre built and completely sold out and Tower Two set to open soon, this condominium project exudes a truly urban lifestyle, including the use of energy efficient heating, plumbing and electrical systems, reduced consumption, enhanced recycling, walking, biking, car share and transit.

Focusing on people and spaces

Life is all about spaces. You need space to grow. Space to think. A space to live in. And sometimes, you just need your space. Great Gulf began in 1975 with a belief that it wasn’t just building homes, but creating spaces. Spaces that work. Spaces that last. Now, more than 40 years and some 40,000 homes later, that belief has helped earn it the one thing that every great builder aspires to: a space in its customers’ hearts.

COME A LONG WAY

From breaking ground at its first lot in Cambridge to becoming a three-time winner of Home Builder of the Year, Great Gulf has come a long way. While a lot has changed in that time, one thing hasn’t: Great Gulf’s unwavering commitment to building great spaces that inspire the people who live, work and play there.

Spaces that inspire you to do great things. Where people interact and grow closer. After four decades, Great Gulf continues to grow, innovate and inspire people to live greatly.

THE PURSUIT OF GREATNESS

Design. Technology. Experience. As the key pillars of every Great Gulf project, these three little words are a big deal to them. It starts with innovative design that combines intelligent spaces with functional beauty. Guided by technology and building science, inspiration takes physical form. But before it builds anything in the real world, Great Gulf builds in a virtual one, allowing it to perfect every aspect before laying the foundation. This results in spaces that are quieter, brighter, healthier and more energy efficient.

Finally, Great Gulf’s unparalleled dedication to every customer creates an experience that is second to none, with a well-earned reputation that can only be described with one word: great.

LIVE GREATLY

Great Gulf’s goal is simple: build extraordinary spaces that inspire the people who inhabit them on a daily basis – in everything from thoughtfully designed urban developments like its home condominium in Toronto’s core, to beautiful master-planned communities like Hillsborough in Holland Landing, East Gwillimbury. And Great Gulf continues to look ahead to the future with plans, projects and ideas that are greater than ever.

Here’s to what lies ahead.
