A new proposal in North York is building off of a previous plan for a 6-storey, 42-unit development at 258-262 Sheppard Avenue West, which was recommended for approval in 2012. In the time since, seven adjacent lots have been acquired by the developer, which led to a redesign of the site to accommodate additional density. This change in massing and density have led to the current resubmission, addressed at 270 Sheppard West, for which Park Hiatt Developments is now seeking an Official Plan Amendment and rezoning.

To be known as The Addington, the project design by Kirkor Architects Planners would rise eight storeys on a 3,895 square metre subject site, and would use stepped terraces to integrate its mid-rise height in with the adjacent low-rise housing to the north.

The project's 14,295 m² gross floor area (GFA) would consist of approximately 13,645 m² of residential space, and just under 650 m² of retail space. Levels 2 through 7 of The Addington will house a mix of one-bedroom, one-bedroom + den, two-bedroom, and two-bedroom + den layouts, while the eighth and uppermost residential level will contain three-bedroom penthouse units. Four units will be located on the ground level, with two facing Addington Avenue, and the other two facing a landscaped walkway to the east. Six retail shops would face Sheppard at ground level.

A combined 693 m² of amenity space would serve residents of The Addington's 163 units. 344 m² indoor amenity space would be housed within the building's ground floor, connecting with an additional 349 m² outdoor amenity space, located to the rear of the ground level in a landscaped yard. Below grade, a two-level underground parking garage would contain a total of 199 parking spaces, with 102 spaces housed on the P2 level and 95 spaces on the P1 level. 81 bicycle parking spaces are proposed to be provided, short of the 129 that Planning formulas require for the building.
