Appears to be the s/e corner of Eglinton & Pharmacy.

Currently a factory of some description.

Employs 100'ish people according to the website.

Site continues to border more industrial applications to the south.

****

Assuming we do get some variation of an Eglinton LRT in the next several years...

I would imagine there would be much intensification in the corridor, this would be among the last sites I would consider.

Proposed stations are Victoria Park and Warden (if underground); Pharmacy if surface as well.

Aside from that, the neighbours include industry, rail spur, car dealership, big box centre, sprawling retail/parking.....

The site is also industrial, meaning potential for clean-up issues may exist.

I wonder if this one will get through the "Employment Conversion" hoop

Application was submitted by Goldberg Group (as planning consultant)

I wonder if there's enough demand to sell that many units at Eglinton/Pharmacy. And it's nice that they're putting the towers out to the street, but it doesn't look like much thought went into the pedestrian realm along Eglinton. I'd hope they refine the podium a bit.

I don't know this area at all, but it's likely no coincidence that with the Eglinton LRT going ahead that we're seeing more, and larger, developments coming to the street. For one of Toronto's most important streets, there's been an almost stunning lack of proposals so far during this unprecedented boom.

The area is a vast waste land of big box retail from Victoria Park Ave. to Almost Birchmount. 3 Kms of parking lots. That said. The block between VP and Pharmacy on the north side of Eglinton is ripe for redevelopment. As is the site at 1891 Eglinton Ave. There are many other sites of similar size along that stretch of Eglinton that could easily accommodate mid - highrise development. Bring it on. Done properly, we can revert back to calling the strip by its original name.The Golden Mile.

I used to live at Vic Pk / Eglinton back in the early 90's... even driving Eglinton between the DVP and Kennedy now it seems like there has been a fair amount of intensification since I lived there. It is good to see some of the old industrial lands start coming up for redevelopment. Although as others have pointed out, the proposal seems to be the bare minimum rather than anything that will contribute in any meaningful way other than make traffic in the area worse.
