A new proposal submitted to the City of Toronto seeks rezoning to permit a five-building condominium and townhome development at 300 Danforth Road, located midway between Warden and Birchmount in Scarborough. The plan from Ranka Group of Companies proposes a 241-unit, Gabriel Bodor Architect-designed development consisting of four blocks of townhomes and a mid-rise condominium tower.

The proposal spreads 21,143 m² of residential density across a 7,094 m² (1.75-acre) site, with the bulk of the density—in the form of a 12-storey tower fronting on Danforth Road. The tower would rise to a height of 42.6 metres, or approximately 140 feet, and contain 161 of the proposed 241 condominium units. 161 m² (1,741 ft²) of commercial space would face the street.

The remaining 80 condominium units would be spread across four blocks of 4-storey townhomes, labelled A through D in planning documents. Building A would contain 24 units, building B would contain 16 units, and both buildings C and D would each house 20 units. The unit mix across the entire development is proposed as 111 one-bedrooms, 126 two-bedrooms, and 4 three-bedrooms.

Residents would be served by a variety of amenities, with 504 m² (5,430 ft²) of indoor space and 737 m² (7,938 ft²) of outdoor spaces. The underground garage would contain 251 spaces for residents, 48 for visitors, and 3 for the commercial users.
