Pretty substantial development altogether, and one block east of Yonge. Kirkor's website indicates around 877 units. And while technically on the Markham side, it does line along Steeles Ave and could act as a catalyst towards gradually intensifying this corridor altogether.

It'll replace this whole block on the left:

This "Atlantis" project might be lost before it even get started,......

I'll just repost what I posted last year on Gupta's nearby 7028 Yonge project thread regarding these high-density projects in York Region along north-side of Steeles & Toronto's "Trump Card" - which is why there's practically no high-density developments anywhere along north-side of Steeles,.... currently,....

Ever wonder why you do NOT see high-density intensification along north-side of Steeles Ave? Y’all might want to skim through the Shops on Steeles (& Don Mills) redevelopment thread,....
https://urbantoronto.ca/forum/threa...dev-summit-7-bldgs-to-32s-dormant.5266/page-4

Basically since 1974, Steeles Ave (boundary between Toronto & Vaughan/Markham/YorkRegion) is a Toronto Road - giving the City of Toronto some planning authority 45m north of Steeles Ave into York Region (Markham, Vaughan).

While high-density intensification all along the north-side of Steeles Ave would be extremely beneficial for Markham, Vaughan (York Region) - IE property tax revenue generation! It would be very negative to City of Toronto in terms of traffic congestion & infrastructure; especially water sewage drainage (ie: flooding & sewage back-up) - the water pipe & other infrastructure under Steeles Ave & downstream is old and requires rebuild but York Region refuse to contribute a fair portion to this “Toronto project”; thus, the City of Toronto will keep on playing its Trump Card,.... and refuse high-density intensification within 45m of north-side of Steeles Ave that would utilize any City of Toronto infrastructure.
