A proposal submitted to the City of Toronto's Planning Department earlier this month seeks an Official Plan Amendment, Zoning Bylaw Amendments, and Site Plan Approval to replace an existing 3-storey medical office building at 145 Sheppard Avenue East with a new mid-rise condominium development. Site owner Zentil Property Management aims to build an 11-storey building containing 55 condominium units and ground floor retail on the site just west of Willowdale Avenue.

Designed by Graziani + Corazza Architects, the proposed building would have a total gross floor area of 6,510 m² (70,078 ft²), consisting of 6,305 m² (67,866 ft²) of residential space spread across 55 units, and 205 m² (2,206 ft²) of retail fronting onto Sheppard. The building would reach a height of 41.2 metres to the top of the mechanical penthouse.

145 Sheppard East's condominium units would range in size between 47 m² (506 ft²) and 77 m² (825 ft²), in a mix of 21 one-bedroom layouts, 23 one-bedroom+den layouts, and 11 two-bedroom layouts. Residents would have access to 110 m² second floor party room with access to a 110 m² of outdoor terrace.

Due to the constrained conditions of the 931 m² (10,021 ft²) site, a pair of car elevators would be used to access the five-level underground garage's 47 parking spaces, divided between 40 resident spaces, 5 visitor parking spaces, and 2 retail spaces. The first underground level would also support 38 long-term bicycle parking spaces, while an additional 4 short-term bicycle parking spaces would be housed at grade.

Architectural plans include the materials that will be used to finish the mid-rise. They include a mix of multiple tones of grey and white precast frames, spandrel panels, frosted and vision glazing, and composite inner frames with wood finishes.
