This project is located at the south-east corner of Bloor St and Markland Dr, just before the Etobicoke Creek.

I believe the 3 story will be at the south end of the existing 10 story building, as the east side is having it underground parking structure rebuilt at this time and no room on the west side. It will have 27 units.

The 18 story build will house retail at grade along Bloor St.

On the north side of Bloor St for 210 Markland Dr, there is enough room for 2 buildings.

If one looks at Bloor St west of here to Dixie Rd, there is no less than 15 properties that could house another building or 2 since this is a major transit route to the Islington and Kipling station today.

There is an new application up at Dixie Rd for the south-east corner for 10 townhouse at the south end.

Glad to read this...I used to live at 210 Markland....loved living there, but it was a "tower in a park" .....this area could use some density along Bloor.

From the overuse of spandrels to the generic panelled mechanical penthouse, the facade is uninspiring. The builders of the apartment buildings in the area set the bar low, but we should be doing better nowadays.
