Surrounding Toronto's high-end Shops at Don Mills, a high-density residential community is gradually taking shape south of Lawrence Avenue East and west of Don Mills. Adding to Cadillac Fairview's completed Reflections, Liv Lofts and Flaire condominiums—as well as the planned two-tower project at 169 The Donway—another pair of residential towers is now making its way through the City's planning process, with a Site Plan Application (SPA) recently submitted for the property at 49 The Donway.

Already in sales, the Lanterra and CF project marketed as Rodeo Drive Condominiums is entering the approvals process with zoning secured under an OMB-mediated agreement—dating to 2001—for the Cadillac Fairview lands between The Donway and Lawrence west of Don Mills.

Reaching heights of 32 and 16 storeys, the two new buildings feature a combined total of 633 residential units, all of which are planned as either one- or two-bedroom suites. As with the nearby project at 169 The Donway, the towers feature a design by Toronto's Hariri Pontarini Architects.

At the north end of the site the taller 32-storey tower is planned, adjacent to Shops at Don Mills. Rising from a seven-storey podium—which stretches to the north—the building would feature 425 units, along with a pair of retail units at street level.

To the south, the shorter tower volume negotiates a transition in scale towards the low-rise neighbourhood south of the Shops at Don Mills Shopping Centre. Featuring 208 residential units, the smaller building will also feature two retail units at grade, both of which would front the south extension of O'Neill Road, which is slated to meet The Donway east of the two towers.

To the west, a new public park is planned, with a tree-lined walkway between the towers leading opening out to the green space. Appointed by Quinn Design Associates, the landscaping plan will also introduce new paving and planting across the site. Inside, the project's interiors will be appointed by Studio Munge

Given the site's location in what remains a relatively car-oriented part of the city, a total of 812 parking spots are planned. Of these, 136 are slated for retail use—mostly for the neighbouring shopping complex—with the remaining 673 spots reserved for condo residents. A high ratio of just over one parking spot per unit is planned, with the project served by a five-level underground parking garage.
