An application submitted to the City of Toronto is seeking rezoning to permit a mixed-use, mid-rise development at the southwest corner of Bathurst and Glencairn. The plan from Lanterra Developments would replace an existing 4-storey office building at 2788 Bathurst Street, and a single-family home at 515 Glencairn Avenue.

Designed by IBI Group, the proposal includes 113 condominium units, a 1,950 m², 26-suite hotel, and 1,020 m² of retail units, adding up to a total of 26,000 m² of gross floor area. The project would primarily rise nine storeys, with a 10th level housing a mix of residential, mechanical, and amenity space. 

The 113 condo units are proposed in a unique mix of 52 two-bedrooms and 61 three-bedrooms, with no one-bedroom nor studio suites. Residents would have access to 226 m² of indoor amenity area and 226 m² of outdoor amenity area. The outdoor amenity area would include communal outdoor landscaped decks on the 2nd floor and the 9th floor.

Conforming with the City’s parkland dedication requirements, a landscape plan by The MBTW Group also includes a new 15.3-metre wide linear public park, running along the west edge of the property from Glencairn Avenue isouth to Hillmount Avenue. Three-storey townhouses would front the park, with condo suites on stepped-back floors above. The hotel would be built into the Hillmount and Bathurst frontages on the lower three floors. Along the eastern frontage, a portion of land fronting on Bathurst Street would be dedicated to the City for a future road widening project.

A two-level underground garage containing 178 parking spaces is proposed in a mix of 128 parking spaces for residential use and 50 spaces shared between the hotel, retail, and residential visitors. 114 long- and short-term bicycle spaces would be provided for the residential units, and 10 bicycle spaces for the retail units.
