Development is moving along at 5200 Yonge Street, and we have now received a small rendering of the proposed building via forum member urbandreamer.

The developer has released little information regarding the project, however NHD Developments, a company associated with the Sorbara Development Group, is listed as the developer in the Official Plan Amendment Application that was submitted this past January. Wallman Architects are listed as the building designers, with the developer seeking clearance to build a 37-storey tower.

The amendment proposes a primarily residential building, with a 2-storey base consisting of retail space and childcare facilities, as well as a 'community based retail market'. While it's promising to see a mixed-use development coming to North York City Centre, it's going against the Official Plan's designation of the site as Mixed-Use Area B, which allows for a maximum 50% residential development of the site.
