From Markham's Circulated Planning Applications:
An ePLAN submission for a Major Official Plan and Major Zoning By-law Amendment has been received from Jesse Spiegel c/o MHBC Planning (David McKay) for the properties municipally known as 17, 19, 21, and 23 Morgan Avenue the "Subject Lands". The applicant is proposing to demolish the existing buildings on the Subject Lands and redevelop the site with a 33 storey residential building. The proposed building will contain a GFA of approximately 25,459 square meters (247,038 square feet). The proposed building will contain a total of 387 apartment units consisting of 234 one-bedroom units (60%), 127 twobedroom units (33%) and 26 three-bedroom units (7%). Parking is proposed in the form of four surface parking spaces and a five-level underground parking garage and will include 291 total parking spaces, consisting of 253 resident spaces and 38 visitor parking spaces.

Other than the whole missing middle issue, I'm on board with this. The podium is about as copy-paste as they come, but the form of the top really stands out, it feels very Scandinavian.

WDG also doesn't seem to skimp out on materials so hopefully the building will actually look decent too.
