    I predict something similar to Tribute Communities' 1717 Avenue.

    http://app.toronto.ca/DevelopmentApplications/searchDevelopmentProjects.do

    1678 AVENUE RD
    Ward 16 - North York OPA / Rezoning 11 330290 NNY 16 OZ Dec 22, 2011

    Application to amend the Zoning By-law to permit a 7-storey mixed-use residential commercial building with a total gross floor area of 17,011 square metres and an FSI of 3.95. Proposed are 136 units on floors 2-7 with 2,045 square metres of commercial space on the ground floor. There would be 233 parking spaces within 2 below grade parking levels consisting of 110 spaces for visitors/commercial and 123 spaces for residential use. Access to the site would be from 2 driveways with one from Brookdale Avenue and the other from Fairlawn Avenue.

    Developer is Mady Developments
    Architect is Turner Fleischer Architects

    Yes indeed ... building massing is very similar to 1717 Avenue Road, which is the City's vision for "Avenues"

    Bistro on Avenue has great wings but other than that, it's nice to see further growth of our avenues.

    Live is a strong word. I think its safer to say i woefully existed there. Roaches, ants, mice, mold, plumbing issues, bedroom with no 3 prong plugs, domestic disturbances above and below ona daily basis, power surge issues that burnt out 3 separate window A/C units, silverfish in the drains and sewage coming up through the shower drain after rainy days. I would happily work on that demolition team for free. The property was sold by Alan Cherry (that clothing guy) to Regal Property Management the same month i moved out. Now i'm renting for way too much in the architectural void that is Oxford's Rosewell Gardens. This neighbourhood is a great place to raise a family but a terrible place to be a 24 year old with an active social life. I feel my uptown days are numbered

    It's going to be quite a drastic change in streetscape once this development is finished as I grew up from across the street. Thanks for posting up the renderings as I've only come across them on this thread.

    On a interesting note, my grandparents own the property 1687 Avenue Rd. which is directly across from this development. They purchased this property about 40 years ago and actually had plans to purchase the two apartment complexes. From what I know, the builder of the apartment buildings wanted to sell them along with the two properties next to them (Bistro and the now Forest Hill Real Estate formerly a jewellery store).

    That's quite the change in direction. Here's a look at the last rendering of the Turner Fleischer design.

    It will be interesting to see the RAW version!
