A Mizrahi Developments proposal for a 9-storey condo at 128 Hazleton Avenue has been received by the City of Toronto, with renderings showing an AUDAX architecture design that the firm calls "a modern take on the classical 19th century mid-rise European building typology." The 21-unit development would neighbour Mizrahi's 133 Hazleton and 181 Davenport, two similarly styled buildings immediately to the east. Together, the three buildings will create a distinctive streetscape along the south side of Davenport Road between Avenue Road and Bay Street, with an aesthetic that contrasts with much of Toronto's recent built form.

With layouts ranging in size from 1,218 to 5,896 ft², the project's suites promise a spacious and luxurious ambiance. While the second floor will contain a total of five suites, the third and fourth floors will contain only four, while the fifth, sixth, and seventh floors will be entirely given over to two very large suites. Finally, the eighth and ninth floors will feature one unit each.

The development will feature 47 spaces of below-ground vehicle parking—more than double the number of units—with two car lifts making for spatially efficient access to street level. In addition, the plans also include 22 spaces of bicycle parking, as well as a small gym and an amenity space on the ground level.

Mizrahi's proposal also includes landscaping plans by The Planning Partnership, with ground-level plantings and beautification shown in the renderings. The ground level also includes a 2,307 ft² retail space at ground level, with a retail entrance directly at the intersection (on the building's northeast corner). On the second floor, architectural plans also show two of the smaller units—at 1,218 and 1,531 ft² classified as residential/commercial, meaning there's some possibility of more commercial activity in the building.

The residential entrance is planned for the south side of the building, making for a more private ambiance compared to the retail area at the intersection. A lobby—with concierge desk—lead to the elevators and amenity area, while the vehicular entry on Davenport is joined by a 24-hour valet station.
