Concord Adex's 45-acre Concord Park Place community continues to grow around Bessarion subway station in the Toronto borough of North York. 13 years into the community's construction, eight condominium buildings and a new park have been built, two more condominium towers and a community centre are under construction, and a few new projects are on the horizon with an aim to have 20 buildings in the community upon completion. We recently covered plans to bring an office building and residential tower to the northeast corner of the community next to Leslie subway station, and now another proposal is seeking Site Plan Approval for a mid-rise residential complex on the current site of the community's presentation centre.

Known as Block 7, the site is situated immediately east of Bessarion Station and Woodsy Park Lane—set to be renamed "Ethennonnhawahstihnen' Lane in line with the adjacent park's upcoming Wendat-language renaming. Home to the Concord Park Place condominium presentation centre since 2008, the site at 1001 Sheppard East has an area of 6,592 m², and would be the first Concord Park Place residential building with a frontage on Sheppard.

Plans call for a building marked mostly by its six-storey podium, but rising to eight storeys behind the podium on its east and west sides. Designed by DIALOG, the building has a total gross floor area of 25,562 m² primarily made up of residential space—23,167 m² representing 90.63% of the building—in the form of 264 condominium units. The remaining 2,395 m² is dedicated to retail space at the base of the building, designed to provide convenience for residents and animate the south side of Sheppard here, which is currently uninviting to pedestrians.

Architectural plans show organic curves of the building's tower floorplates emphasized by white metal slab edge covers in contrast to a grey-toned window wall system with dark grey spandrel panels and dark grey mullions. Other finishes include dark grey brick sections at the base of the complex, and glass balcony guards along the towers.
