A recent proposal submitted to the City of Toronto by 101 Heath Holdings Inc. and 103 Heath Holdings Inc. seeks Site Plan Approval to bring a low-rise boutique condo development to 101 Heath Street West in the posh Deer Park neighbourhood. An agent of the Heath Holdings companies is Jordan Teperman, who is also an owner of Haven Developments. The proposed three-storey building sports a minimalist aesthetic of brick and glass by architects RAW Design that defers to an integrated heritage component.

Plans call for the demolition of an existing mid-20th century, two-storey brick masonry home at 101 Heath West, and retention of the front two-thirds of a three-storey red-brick Victorian townhouse--currently housing four rental units--at 103 Heath West. The former building would be demolished, while the latter building's north elevation and, adjacent parts of the west and east elevations with a depth of up to 10.55 metres would be spared. The modern section would rise 14.1 metres tall, divided from the heritage component via a glazed atrium and staircase, and contain a gross floor area of 1,517 m² dedicated entirely to residential space.

This would include 10 condominium units, all in multi-bedroom layouts with generous floor plans, including seven two-bedroom units averaging 137.5 m² in area and three three-bedroom units averaging 135.3 m². Among the ten units, one of the two-bedroom plans—measuring 235 m²—occupies the entire first two floors of the retained heritage house portion, along with new build portions at its rear. (The four existing rental units currently housed on the proposal site will not be replaced in the redevelopment, as they do not meet the threshold of six rental units or more that Chapter 667 of the Municipal Code requires replacement for.)

Ground-floor uses for the building are proposed to include a prominent residential lobby entrance, as well as six two-storey, two-bedroom units, all with outdoor patios and with five of the six to include their own dedicated exterior access. The second floor would be entirely dedicated to the upper levels of first-floor units, while the third floor would house pairs of two- and three-bedroom units accessed via an interior elevator or the atrium staircase.

A single underground level is proposed to house the site's 12 parking spaces, with ten for residents (including a single accessible space) and two for visitors. The underground floor would also house 16 bicycle parking spaces, resident storage lockers, a garbage room, as well as water and electrical functions.
