Greencapital is seeking to rezone a 1.5-hectare site at 10 Royal Orchard Blvd.
A proposed development featuring a 59-storey tower has been deemed outrageous by a Markham councillor as a neighbourhood readies itself for the possible extension of the Yonge subway line.
Greencapital is seeking to rezone an approximately 1.5-hectare site at 10 Royal Orchard Blvd., just off Yonge Street, to facilitate the construction of four towers between 25 and 59 storeys. The development is to include 1,560 residential units, 1,866 parking spaces and a public park.
Conceptual floor plans submitted with the application propose an integrated future subway entrance in the event that a Royal Orchard stop is included on a future Yonge Street subway. The extension has yet to be approved and its alignment and stations have yet to be finalized.
