Haven't seen a thread for this.
Development application - City of Toronto
And slowly Sheppard grows. Cool!
Preliminary report is out.
appealed to the OMB
This if approved, will be a Liberty Developments Project.
This one has been morphing, but not enough to make City Planning happy, so it's still heading for the OMB.

The Village Residences at Bayview & Sheppard (Liberty Development)
Saw the sign for this one while driving on Sheppard. It is by Liberty Development. Don't know the exact address.
This project is addressed as 591-593 Sheppard Avenue East, on south side mid block between Barberry Place and Rean Drive (attached to west side of Daniel's NY2 condos)
Sort of an awkward site mid block, the proposal seeks to wrap an L-shaped building around the north and west side of a replacement church building to replace the existing one on site

Now under construction:
Today, they built this massive covered roof on the east end of the site. Any idea what is going on? The thing is probably 35 feet high.
It's most likely the new church being built as part of a deal made between Liberty and the congregation next door.
Construction has come to a halt in the past 3 weeks. No work has progressed. However they did bring in an excavator to demolish some side piece building.
Looks like construction has been back on… although in Saturday's snow, not so much that day:
Quite the day to go trecking out around Sheppard.
Say what you will about the architecture, but the community has an interesting mix of high-rise, mid-rise, and low-rise buildings.
