A numbered Ontario company has submitted a Zoning Bylaw Amendment application to the City of Toronto for a 5-storey building at 900 Middlefield Road in northern Scarborough. Located on the edge of Milliken District Park just south of Steeles, the building is proposed with 48 condo units and 199m² of retail space at grade. Currently home to a small strip mall, the redevelopment would bring one of the first mid-rise building to an area alternately comprised of single family homes and mixed office and industrial parks.

Designed by klma, a partnership of Keith Loftier Design Inc and McAlpine Architect Inc, the building features a curve at its north end, leading southward to the lobby entrance, coffee shop and a proposed public plaza that would sit outside the building. Hidden behind the galleria of the coffee shop is a Klaus stacked parking system with a 43 car capacity. The semi-automatic garage would span the same 8.4 metre height as the 6 two-storey townhomes on the ground floor.

Above, the three residential floors would each have 14 units; all with access to the 5th floor amenity area and rooftop terraces. Appearing to be clad in a window-wall exterior with grey metal spandrel panels alternating with windows, the upper-level exterior is articulated by inset and projecting balconies for each unit.
