That rendering has disappeared from Icon Architect's site above, but there's a new development soon to be submitted here by Clifton Blake: 7 storeys, 120 units, (including 13 rental replacement units), retail at ground level. Public consultation on March 9, see the attachment!

Interested to see what is being proposed here. It's a pretty substantial parcel of land to work with overall.

I also saw a couple signs on the fence in front of the 1004-1006 College property, which is currently an abandoned building just west of Bairrada Churrasqueira. I was out jogging so I didn't have my phone to capture the names/listings on the signs but it hinted at an upcoming redevelopment as well.

The proposed development consists of a mid-rise building providing retail shops on the ground floor and seven storeys of residential above. The total building floor area is approximately 120,000 square feet, consisting of approximately 102,000 square feet of residential floor area, and approximately 17,800 square feet of commercial floor area. The overall density of the proposal is an F.S.I. of approximately 4.6 times the site area.

The number of dwelling units proposed is 120 consisting of a mix of bachelor, one, two and three bedroom units. 107 will be new freehold dwelling units, and 13 will be developed as rental dwelling units to replace the existing supply of rental units on the Property.

Yeah, I'd love to see that awful suburban plaza go. It's hopelessly out of place in otherwise handsome Little Italy.

Update:
On the south side of College Street, the long-standing Azores Auto Group car dealership could be making way for a new development by the Clifton Blake Group. Submitted to the City of Toronto on July 13th, a rezoning and Site Plan Approval (SPA) application outlines plans for an 8-storey mixed-use building, featuring a combination of street-level retail, residential condominiums, rental apartments, and rental replacement suites.

383 Sorauren is turning out to be quite an influential design...
Yes, nice to see the trend of chamfered solid walls here in Toronto. A nice departure from the cliché of staggered mullions and random spandrel panelled window walls. I really like how the shadows play off of it.

The recessed retail storefronts are a bit oppressive especially with the heavy solid forms above. I like the variation of brick for each volume, but it would better if the colour/shade were a little more distinctive from each other.
