BSäR Group are planning a future midrise development at 2388 Danforth Ave. It is currently a car wash, a couple blocks west of Main Street:

Site size: ~1400m2 / 15000ft2

Good site for redevelopment, almost directly across from The Danny condos which provides ample precedent; the Sobeys down the street will go sooner than later as well.

I believe the only site in the area off limits is @tstormers KFC As depriving him of dinner is just not on.....

I couldn't do it justice with a mobile phone and I tried with a bunch of different settings. The red letters were pure red and the car bay green had an electric glow against the dusk light. It was too beautiful to capture!
Perfection with the framing and exposure. Stunning colour. A beautiful photo!

Agreed. I just hope there is good commercial space at street level. So far, the midrises that are built or under construction along the Danforth, primarily between Jones and Main, are underwhelming at street level, with a lot of dead or underutilized space.

This is unacceptable for one of Toronto’s great (greatest?) commercial strips. I think the midrise clusters in Leslieville and Corktown can provide a good model to follow.

There is a lot of 'flow' interruption in this section of Danforth which I think hampers those condos leasing efforts. That's not to say that they cannot and should not have been better architecturally at street level; they could have and should have been.

Still, you have the Sobeys Parking Lots (East and West); a former 7-11 that is now a beauty supply place, I think, w/parking in front, you have some lowrise apartments that are nice, but lack retail, a Bell building, and then a gas station all on that one side (south).

Meanwhile, the north side has the Church, the seniors residence the KFC with parking in front, the low-rise medical building with prominent at-grade parking, the large car wash, and then a car dealer just after. Lots of intervention required here.
