With the TTC Eglinton Crosstown LRT on the horizon, development surrounding the future Yonge-Eglinton transit hub is intensifying at a dizzying pace. With nearby under-construction projects such as The Madison, Neon Condos and The Berwick, as well as skyscraping proposals like E Condos, 2221 Yonge and 2131 Yonge, the neighbourhood is experiencing a real estate renaissance of sorts. In addition to Freed Developments’ recently announced redevelopment of The Art Shoppe site at 2131 Yonge Street, the trend-setting development company has unveiled plans for a new 35-storey condominium tower, located just a few blocks to the east.

The 470-unit, architectsAlliance-designed project is slated to rise from the southeast corner of Redpath & Roehampton, currently the site of several single-family homes. UrbanToronto Forum member Roundabout snapped some shots of the hoarding which has recently been erected surrounding the site.

The houses located within the confines of the hoarding have been emptied of residents and boarded up. Though neither formal bylaw amendment nor demolition applications have been submitted to city staff thus far, the pre-approval cordoning-off of the land assembly with advertisement-adorned hoarding hints towards either imminent movement on the site, or simply an optimistic outlook by Freed Developments.

155 Redpath will provide residents with a wide array of amenities including but not limited to; a party room, sauna, outdoor pool and hot tub, pool and cabana lounge as well as a multi-level fitness centre. Residents will also have access relaxing spaces such as a reflecting pool and an indoor/outdoor yoga facility. The project has just now entered its sales phase and is targeted for completion in the summer of 2016.
