A proposal submitted to the City of Toronto seeks rezoning to permit a new 36-storey condominium tower located midway between Dundas and Gerrard streets on the east side of Jarvis. The plan from developer Minto Group calls for a Core Architects-designed tower, rising to a height of 112.45 metres (369 ft) at 295 Jarvis Street.

Currently occupied by a three-storey extended stay hotel and rooming house called the Inglewood Arms, the proposal would replace it with a 351-unit condominium tower. Images included in the submission show a rectilinear massing with narrow east and west elevations, and broader facades to the north and south.

The proposed 351 condo units are broken down into a mix of 14 studio units, 224 one-bedroom units, 97 two-bedroom units, and 16 three-bedroom units. Residents would have access to amenities housed on the third and fourth floors, as well as a rooftop amenity level offering indoor and outdoor spaces with city views. 

At street level, a landscape plan by Land Art Design includes a feature trellis framing a planter with deciduous and evergreen trees just outside the building’s main entrance. The landscaped area would also provide bike lock-ups for residents and visitors, while additional bike storage would be housed on the second floor, overlooking the street. Below grade, a five-level garage would contain 59 parking spaces.
