Appropriate Land Uses Based on considerations for land use compatibility, proximity, accessibility and Master Plan objectives, general land uses that are suitable for each parcel were identified. More specific potential uses are identified in the Parcel Profiles.

The general land use categories and descriptions are: a)

Academic and Research Parcels suitable for uses related to the University’s academic and research functions. (Figure 1)

b)

Residential Parcels suitable for residential uses including a variety of building types and tenures. (Figure 2)

c)

Employment Parcels suitable for non-academic related research, office-commercial and prestigious industrial uses. (Figure 3)

d)

Retail Commercial Parcels suitable for retail uses that serve the broader community. (Figure 4)

e)

Recreational Parcels suitable for community and recreational facilities that serve a broader community – such as play fields or aquatic centre. (Figure 5)

f)

Special Uses Parcels afforded with siting, natural or built assets that render them suitable for uses that serve visiting and tourist traffic – such as an inn or convention facilities.

Compatible Design Areas Certain areas of the Endowment Lands require sensitive design considerations to ensure compatibility and a harmonious relationship with existing developed areas or important natural features. Compatible Design Areas are consistent with the principles of the Structure Plan which aim to protect and reinforce Trent’s unique and distinct physical identity.

The Compatible Design Areas and descriptions are: a)

Compatible Design with Campus Character These parcels are adjacent to the campus in highly visible locations. Development must be compatible in its compact built character, building scale, pedestrian orientation and in the use of contemporary architectural expression. (figure 1)

b)

Compatible Design with River Corridor These parcels are adjacent to the Otonabee River or Trent Canal. Development must provide for an appealing and continuous public frontage along the water’s edge and an abundance of direct physical and visual connections to the water. (figure 2)

c)

Compatible Design with Green Corridors These parcels are adjacent to Nature Areas and/ or Green Buffers and Corridors. Development must provide appropriate transitions and buffers where adjacent to Nature Areas and an appealing continuous public frontage along Green Buffers and Corridors. (figure 3)

d)

with

Existing

These Parcels are adjacent to existing established residential neighbourhoods. Development must harmoniously fit or provide for adequate landscape buffering and transition in use and built form. (figure 4)

Development and Ownership Considerations The following prioritizes the parcels according to potential development and ownership scenarios.

a)

Partnership Priority Parcels These parcels have been identified as priorities for Trent’s participation in their development. The selection is premised on ensuring strict control over design (High Priority) and/or gaining potential high returns by investing in highly marketable developments. (figure 1)

b)

Market Priority Parcels These parcels are most marketable and of the greatest land value because they are serviced lands, and due to their proximity to existing development and road accessibility. These parcels can potentially provide the University with revenue in the near-term and will likely shape the phasing of the Endowment Lands development. (figure 2)

c)

Disposition Priority Parcels The University should endeavour to enter into Land Lease agreements for all its lands, however where disposition is necessary to facilitate greater benefits to the University, parcels have been identified that are not perceived to be contiguous with Trent University lands. (figure 3)

d)

Swing Parcels These parcels are located in closest proximity to the campus and within the proposed Ring Road. In the event that the development of these parcels is not immediately viable or supportable, they may revert back to the Core Campus. (figure 4)

Potential Parcel Development Staging Plan The Structure Plan and Parcel Plan are defined with anticipated infrastructure such as roads and bridges in place. In some cases ensuring the viability of specific uses for a particular parcel such as retail will require proximity to an existing critical mass of people. Consequently, to ensure a logical and rational order of development, the recommended sequencing of parcel development is as follows:

Stage 1 – Initial Developments (0-2 years) • Disposition of 1G • Lease or Disposition of 2D (subject to MOU) Stage 2 – Near-Term Developments (2-5 years) • Lease or Partnership for 1C development • Lease or Partnership for 1A development following realignment of Armour Road • Disposition of 1F following realignment of Armour Road • Lease for Development of 2A, 2B, 2C, 2E and 2F into retail commercial developments and/or employment uses, otherwise if such uses are not viable or possible, dispose of 2A, 2B, 2C and 2F Stage 3 – Medium-Term Developments (5-15 years) • Lease or Disposition of 1E if City does not develop parcel for affordable housing • Partnership for 1B development by reinvesting revenue generated on other developments • Partnership for 1D development following the completion of the realigned bridge and new Ring Road and by reinvesting revenue generated on other developments • Partnership or Lease for 4C, 4D, 4E developments following completion of new Ring Road and extension of hard services • Lease or Partnership for 4A development following extension of hard services and road improvements • Lease for 4B development following extension of hard services and road improvements Stage 4 – Long-Term Developments (15 + years) • Lease or Partnership for 3A development following extension of hard services • Lease or Partnership for 3B, 3C, 3D and 4G development following extension of hard services and road improvements to 9th line • Lease or Partnership for 4F development following extension of hard services
