Looks like redevelopment of the former post office site in Leslieville, also a bit of parking/loading space to build on.

It would certainly be a boon for the area east of Pape to see a development like this.

Along with the upcoming proposing several blocks east, it appears Queen/Leslieville is a rising area for condominium development.

1029 and 1075 Queen Street East - Zoning Amendment Application - Preliminary Report

http://www.toronto.ca/legdocs/mmis/2013/te/bgrd/backgroundfile-60677.pdf
I don't see anything in the zoning amendment which involves reducing bicycle parking, but the front page article says the site will only provide 38 spaces.

The zoning for this site requires:

a minimum of 1.0 bicycle parking spaces for each dwelling unit, allocated as 0.9 "long-term" bicycle parking space per dwelling unit and 0.1 "short-term" bicycle parking space per dwelling unit
So for 50 units, that's 45 long-term (indoor) spaces and 5 visitor spaces.

^its got retail.

Are all these proposals across the city a certain theme or something? They are all called "Oben Flats", are around the same scale, and oddly enough are all rentals.
