You can bet that despite how close this is to Lawrence West subway station, you'll still hear complaints from neighbours about the traffic that this will generate.

One of the streets I most hate in the city is Dufferin north of Eglinton (south of Eglinton could use some major help as well). Bring it on.

Nice to see pockets of North York outside NYCC get this kind of density. While the renderings are somewhat dull, the massing and land use plans are sweet for the area. These should be fairly affordable as well, given the area, but only a few minutes to Lawrence West and even bikable to downtown if one is ambitious.

More of this, please.

www.lanterradevelopments.com/upcoming_projects/dufferin_lawrence.php

From the website:
Lanterra has submitted plans for an upcoming large scale community at the north-east corner of Dufferin and Lawrence. The project, designed by Page + Steele comprises nearly 10 acres and contemplates a total of 1,600,000 square feet of residential and commercial uses which will include about 1,500 condominiums, 85,000 of street related retail and 60,000 square feet of office space in buildings arranging 7 to 24 storeys. The project surrounds a 3-acre public park being designed by NAK. The project will come to market in the fall of 2008.

I am very interested to see this--so much of what has happened in terms of "avenues" development in the 416 doesn't seem to work very well. But this looks pretty good.

Why don't developers ever put in inner courtyards? Those buildings would be much more palatable, not to mention could sell for more, to a larger group of people, if they had natural lighting from both sides of the building. Instead what you get is a massive solid block of apartments, supported by en even larger solid block as a base.

Cruising around Lanterra's website here http://www.lanterradevelopments.com/upcoming_projects/dufferin_lawrence.php

I noticed it says:

Dufferin & Lawrence

Lanterra has submitted plans for an upcoming large scale community at the north-east corner of Dufferin and Lawrence. The project, designed by Page + Steele comprises nearly 10 acres and contemplates a total of 1,600,000 square feet of residential and commercial uses which will include about 1,500 condominiums, 85,000 of street related retail and 60,000 square feet of office space in buildings arranging 7 to 24 storeys.

Wonder if the slowing condo market is causing a delay with this development?
