If they ever decide to develop the rest of that block west of Bayview, they really should build a new road from the 401W off-ramp, to divert the traffic from the Sheppard/Bayview intersection.
It's a very inefficient intersection to begin with with it being on top of a hill.

Interesting proposal. I've always found those few houses on Bayview Avenue, just north of that 401 West on-ramp to be kind of 'out of place'.

There's been talk of condo towers here for about the last 15-20 years; North York's New York Condo Towers are just on other side of Bayview Ave. About 5 years ago, I believe the same developer/land-assembler who assembled this lot, assembled the (at the time) 4 house lots directly west of this site - tested the water at City Planning for condo tower at both assembled lots & quickly realized the best that can be done at the western site was houses - so 4 post-war bungalow lots severed into the 6 lots hosting 2-storey houses you see now.

So question now is does the proposed mid-rise respect the transition into the neighbourhood to the west including the 6 new houses I just mentioned.

11th, there's no way City would allow MTO off-ramp onto small local residential city streets. Problem is that northbound Bayview to westbound Sheppard double left-turn have difficulty handling the volume of westbound 401 vehicles avoiding troublesome Yonge-401 interchange heading to high density North York Centre.

See image posted by Marcanadian - When cars come off the westbound 401 off-ramp onto bayview, if they can't make the turn onto Bayview, the house with red roof directly south of this site is directly in the line of fire! And that's exactly what happened about 10 years ago with a car smashing into the side of that house & leaving a giant hole at the side of the house - causing extensive structural damage.
