Fieldgate Homes assembled the three sites from 670-690 Progress Avenue in Scarborough Town Centre back in December for $20.0m.

It will be interesting to see if this week's revised transit plans for STC have any bearing on what gets proposed here.

Scarborough Town Centre is finally moving again.. Lets see how much gets built. Makes me wonder if we would have been seeing just as much if the LRT was what was getting built.

Eventually it would have. I would assume slightly lower quality with less demand in the end with dampened enthusiasm from developers and buyers alike. It'll be an easy sell now and thankfully we'll never have to find out. I hope we get some more creative tower proposals designs at some point. As Edward says bring it on

It's a nice mix of low, mid and highrise. At street level it looks very promising, but I agree about the towers- we've seen these many times before and the eyes just glaze over.

Request for Interim Directions Report: https://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2018/sc/bgrd/backgroundfile-116962.pdf
This Report responds to an application where staff are currently not in a position to provide a Final Report to Council, but which could be appealed to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal due to a lack of decision during the break in Council's meeting schedule (July to December 2018).
[...]
City Planning staff have identified concerns with respect to: the proposed street and block plan; built form, height, density, building massing, transition in scale within the existing and planned context overall; site circulation around and through the site; parking and loading; range of housing options, including tenures and unit sizes; enhancement of employment opportunities; determination of the adequacy, location and configuration of the proposed public park; adequacy of site servicing, including sanitary sewer analysis, stormwater management, hydrogeological matters and solid waste collection; adequacy of community services and facilities to serve the proposed development; and impacts on the environment. These issues and all additional matters that arise through the development review process will need to be addressed prior to the submission of the Final Report to City Council. While staff will continue to work with the applicant to address the issues noted here, since it is an election year, it is recommended that City Council direct the City Solicitor and appropriate City Staff to attend and oppose the application in its current form should the application be appealed to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal (LPAT) on the basis of City Council's failure to make a decision on the application within the statutory timeframe of the Planning Act.

Should the application not be appealed to the LPAT, a Final Report will be submitted for City Council's consideration following the resolution of outstanding issues related to this application, and the holding of a statutory Public Meeting under the Planning Act. The target timeline for the Final Report is anticipated to be in the first quarter of 2019.
