Another high-rise development is under way in the Yonge and Eglinton area, as demolition has commenced at the site of Freed Developments and CD Capital's 155 Redpath Condominiums. The 34-storey, architectsAlliance-designed development will rise from the southeast corner of Redpath and Roehampton, just north of Eglinton Avenue and west of Mount Pleasant. First, however, a block of single-family homes is being taken down to make way for the new construction.

The project was one of the many proposals approved in August 2014 during a marathon City Council meeting that saw dozens of new developments greenlighted across the city. Demolition applications for the houses on site were filed the following month, and the teardown process got under way recently.

Once the site has been cleared of the existing houses, the next phase of construction will involve shoring—which creates a wall to hold back the east once the subsequent phase starts, which is excavation of the site. It will be many months before the excavation is completed, prior to construction of the foundation and below-grade garage levels. It is likely that construction will not reach grade agin until late this year.

Once complete in 2017, residents of 155 Redpath's 446 condominium units will enjoy many amenities, including a 9th floor terrace with lounge areas, private cabanas, a fire pit, an infinity edge pool and a hot tub. This amenity level will also include a billiards lounge with a bar plus a sauna and change rooms.
