A 'Tower-in-the-Park' infill proposal has been submitted to the City of Toronto for 15 Martha Eaton Way, a private street leading off of Trethewey Drive in the area north of Eglinton and Black Creek Drive. The site is currently home to a late 1970’s built 23-storey apartment tower and surrounding lands. A small retail plaza is immediately to the east. Designed by Turner Fleischer Architects for First Gulf, the proposal brings a new 8-storey residential rental building to the southeast corner, densifying the site.

The existing building currently contains 364 rental units. With the 8-storey structure adding 155 rental units, this brings the total to 519 units for the site. The new units are proposed in a mix of 51 one-bedrooms, 92 two-bedrooms and 12 three-bedrooms. An existing 430 space below-ground parkade would see modifications to accommodate a direct elevator connection into the new building, however no new spaces are proposed. The existing surface parking area will increase by 5 and to accommodate 51 visitor spaces.

If approved, the development would replace lawns and an outdoor swimming pool of the existing building. Landscape design by Terraplan/Studio TLA landscape architects propose a new communal outdoor amenity area between and around the buildings to include a playground and splash-pad, outdoor seating and shared barbecue area. The new development would also have a private rooftop amenity space, and additional indoor amenity facilities.
