Katalyst Real Estate Corporation has proposed a 7-storeybuilding at 1821 Danforth, between Coxwell and Woodbine Stations in Toronto's East End. Located at the south-west corner of Danforth and Roseheath Avenues, the site is currently home to a two-storey building housing retail at grade. The developer is seeking to construct a Melillo Architects Inc-designed building with 25 rental units and 123 m² of retail.

According to the architectural plans, the building would be clad in Copper Penny ACM Panels and Black Opal Cementitious Panels, materials not often seen on residential developments in Toronto. As this project is still in the rezoning phase, these may not be the final materials used in the construction, however they indicate an ambitious design direction. Dubbed “Lynn Residences” the building would house a unit mix of 11 bachelor, 7 one-bedroom, 5 two-bedroom and 2 three-bedroom apartments.

A 45-degree angular plane transitions the 22.5-metre tall building down to the low-rise households to the south. Only two surface-level parking spaces are planned for the project.
