Etobicoke York Community Council has, on March 19, 2019, adopted the recommendation from the Toronto Preservation Board regarding the intent to designate 58 Wheatfield Road in Mimico under the Ontario Heritage Act.
This recommendation will now track to Toronto City Council for confirmation on March 27, 2019.
Each resident who sent in a letter of support is owed many thanks. To write a letter, a person has to be strongly enough motivated, to take the time and effort involved in preparing and sending such an email.
The intended recipients of such individual letters are aware of the fact that it does, indeed, takes time and effort, for people to make their views known.
Letters stand in contrast to petitions. Quickly adding one’s name to a petition, valuable as petitions are, at times, takes less time and energy than writing a letter. That is a crucial difference.
This is a topic that is concerned with vital matters of strategic thinking.
For that reason, each person who has written a letter, in this case and in similar ones, has made a huge difference.
May 10, 2019 update
No objection has been received by the city for the intent to designate 58 Wheatfield Road under the Ontario Heritage Act within the designated time frame.
As a result, Heritage Preservation Services will now proceed to work with the city legal department to draft the appropriate legal instruments to formally designate the property under the Ontario Heritage Act and register it on the Land Title for the property.
It is expected that the legal instruments will proceed to Toronto City Council for approval in the next month or two.
May 13, 2019 update
he property has been sold.
The following text is from the realtor’s website. Note that the property was sufficiently desirable that it sold even before being listed on MLS.
A HERITAGE HOME IN THE HEART OF THE MIMICO TRIANGLE>/h3.
58 Wheatfield Road was built in 1908 by Alfred Baker, a local architect, for his family. When he passed in 1956, his widow continued to live there, followed by his son, until his death in 1962. It is a 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home in the heart of the Mimico Triangle on a very large 50′ x 124′ lot. The home boasts the original hardwoods on the second floor and more recently renovated bathrooms on the second floor. The gardens will appeal to any landscape enthusiast-full of peonies in the spring and many, many others throughout the summer. As of late March, 2019, this home is now designated a Heritage Home by the Ontario Heritage Act.
NOTE: This home was purchased prior to going to MLS and as such, we did not even have our professional photography and videography completed.
