CentreCourt, the developer behind the seemingly lightning-fast construction of Grid Condos and 411 Church, has submitted a zoning bylaw amendment application the City of Toronto to allow for a new residential building at 199 Church Street north of Shuter. The plan calls for the construction of a 37-storey condo tower with 478 units.

Designed by IBI Group, the tower plays off the brick finish of the heritage buildings below with red brick columns between columns of windows. A cantilevered crown begins at the 29th floor and hangs over the south side of the tower. The building would house 79 studio apartments, 266 one-bedrooms, 82 two-bedrooms, and 51 three-bedrooms. The developer has limited underground parking to 67 stalls.

At ground level, the heritage townhouse frontages will be restored and two of the three occupied by live/work units (the fourth townhouse is not part of the land assembly), while the rest of the floor plate will be used for a residential lobby and servicing/garage entry for the tight site. No retail component is proposed for the project. Currently housed in the heritage buildings, two rental units will be demolished and replaced in the construction of the new tower.
