The neighbourhood north of Toronto's High Park is marked by a substantial number of high-rise rental towers, mostly built in the 1960s, while surrounding the apartments, the streets maintain a much more intimate scale through mostly single-family homes. Just to the northeast, the City has received a proposal to intensify a mid-block site at 200 Keele Street, overlooking Lithuania Park north of Glenlake Avenue.

The project aims to replace 15 existing 3-storey rental townhouses adjacent to the park with a new 4-storey, 52-unit residential apartment building featuring a design by Romanov Romanov Architects. The project would replace the existing towns with new rental units in the development in accordance with the City of Toronto's rental replacement policy, while the remaining 37 proposed units would be sold as condominiums.

The building’s condominium units will range in size from 61 square metres up to 154 square metres, and will be offered in a range of floorpans with a heavy focus on family-sized units. Of the 37 condo units proposed, 25 will feature two and three-bedroom layouts, with the remaining 12 units proposed as 1 bedroom + den layouts. Of the 15 rental units, all would include either two or three bedrooms.

The building is proposed to have 155 square metres of indoor amenity space and an additional 111 square metres of outdoor space on the top floor, with 58 parking spaces for cars in the below-grade garage.
