Proposed residential development consisting of 2 mid-rise buildings of 11 and 10 storeys containing 329 units with retail at grade fronting Sheppard Ave. E. and four blocks of stacked townhouses containing 42 units to the rear of the site.
More mid-rises come to Sheppard! Currently the land is home to a Kia dealership.
Site plan will have to conform with the Sheppard East Avenue plan meaning something like this: (south side in the middle between Warden & Bay Mills/Aragon)

I was disappointed that in the newest design they removed the public lane on the south end. Moving the park to front on Sheppard is a nice change since it would be very difficult for the public to know that a public park is located within the development.

I've always found this section of Sheppard to be pretty drab so this kind of development would be more than welcome. The park, being situated in between the 2 buildings, would be a nice feature as well, as long as it still remains easily accessible to the general public as well.

I am very interested in the mandatory bike rack. I don't think there's a lot of bike rider. Is it really necessary to have that many bike parking in non downtown areas?

I don't understand why in the suburbs you're allowed to build these days with less than one bike storage spot per unit. That's nuts. One bike storage spot should be required per bedroom. That should go hand-in-hand with new bike lanes in the suburbs too, of course: we need both.

Interesting view. I have some experience with Markham and Oakville. Not many people bike up there. I can see why we are promoting it, but practically speaking, people can't get anywhere up here via bike. places are so far apart.

Over the coming years, I think you're going to see every suburban plaza gradually become a mixed-use centre: land values are just too high to leave them as they are now. We're also going to see a re-think on restrictive zoning in the yellow belt that will allow more multi-unit residential initially, and eventually more land uses, most likely convenience retail first. Things will get closer in the burbs, encouraging more cycling, and that will lead to more recreational cycling too. New developments should be built with those creeping, inevitable changes in mind.
