    Drove by this development notice this afternoon. Calls for an 11 storey mixed use building with 207 units, ground floor retail, 6 blocks of 4-storey townhomes with 186 units, and a new public road. No render yet.

    Here's what the lot and surrounding area currently looks like:

    From that site, looks like they filed the app back in August. Here an aerial render and a couple site plans from there:

    That looks great, nice enough to be on par with downtown infill projects. This quality design is a miracle for that area.

    I expect that this is what is going to infill and redevelop the downsview park area including the apartment buildings on Keele that face onto the park, and lawrence heights. These areas are going to see a rebirth even if it might take several years. Streets like dufferin are close enough to subway access that they too can see some love. Proximity to the Subway to the park a new hospital at keele and wilson a expanded yorkdale mall and to the 401 will generate a new era dispite peoples negative attitudes to the current strip plazas and ugly apartment buildings that define the area.

    I'm shocked to see a design this good outside of downtown.

    Warm red brick, wood accents up top, nicely scaled. Definitely a winner for the area, I'd love to see this set a precedent for design and scale in the 'burbs.

    This site was sold to H&R (Lindvest) in 2014. Their headquarters and Lindvest HQ is next door.

    im shocked to... especially with the station condos, dream condos and gremarcy park.... perhaps theres too much development here at the moment and these storage places will be redeveloped in 20 years.
