    There's no application with the city yet, but I found these renderings on the Scott Shields Architects site:

    Nice find! I think the tower has potential if materials are properly executed, but the podium needs significant improvement.

    Oh no,... now were are the locals supposed to buy our,.... err, fine Italian Mezza Notte Pizza,...
    5300Yonge1.

    BTW,... that little yellow 1 storey restaurant Thai Bistro directly north of subject site, makes amazing Thai food but mysteriously closed down recently, after at least 20 years in that location,.... likely have something to do with this development proposal,.....

    This appears to be the single building directly to the north of this project, so I imagine it is related. Maybe they picked up one of the little storefronts?

    I doubt it'll really end up being over 100m. This development proposal is for 109m and 9.61 FSI density! Nothing in the North York Centre Secondary Plan area has this type of density.

    The height limit on this subject site, on Yonge Street north of Ellerslie Ave and south of Churchill Ave is 87m and 3.75FSI density.
    IMG_4507a.

    The height limit in North York Centre south of Ellerslie Ave is generally 100m (about 30-storey) and 4.5FSI density; but due to Menkes' GibsonSquare those can be increased by paying a higher Section 37 Community Benefit rate (as done at Tridel's HullmarkCentre & Bazis' EmpressWalk). Density can be maxed out to 6.0FSI for development near subway entrance; 5.0FSI elsewhere within North York Centre Secondary Plan area (this is for area with 100m height limit).

    Template would be this developer's (Diamante) Diamond condo (next block north at 5350 Yonge) at 91.85m height (via OMB beating City's 87m) with 30-storey (wow, short ceiling height!) and 4.99FSI density (but that's with height and density transfer from St.George On Yonge Anglican Church!)

    The above has "confirmation". This part does not: I'm guessing the max density that can be brought at higher Section 37 Community Benefit rate for 87m height would be closer to 4.0FSI density and height closer to 92m here.

    BTW, yes Diamante did include the former Thai Bistro site (5306 Yonge St) for larger podium (and FSI down to 9.61).
