Project it up at the CoA next week.
This application is for variances for a proposed 20-storey residential apartment tower with a six-storey podium on the land at 3220 Sheppard Avenue East. The Sullivan Community Zoning By-law was amended in 2013 to permit a maximum of 230 dwelling units on the site, including six two-storey townhouse units within the podium. The applicant is now requesting a variance to increase the maximum number of dwelling units to 259. The applicant is also reqesting variances to permit an increase in the mechanical penthouse rooftop coverage, and two setback variances described below.

I found these renderings on Icke Brochu's website. Since Burka downsized in 2014 it looks like they handed off the project to these guys:

Update from Norm Kelly.

"Developers are interested in purchasing the site but easements on the property don't make it economically feasible at the asking price."
 
Easements of what nature? Hmm…

maybe he meant some odd covenant? or something to do with the gas pipeline that runs directly to the west of the site (on the site?).
 
Updated render from the Dev App site. The building is now 18 storeys:

Gee 6 years since I post this thread for something to take place, considering the number of project that have die over this time frame on Sheppard.

I saw the hording in Feb, but didn't have the time to stop as I drove by it to see it.
