An application for Site Plan Approval accompanies a resubmission of Official Plan and Zoning Bylaw Amendment applications to the City of Toronto to permit an 11-storey residential rental building in Downsview. The development by Winzen Vista Ridge Estates Limited, would replace two bungalows and a vacant lot at 1304 through 1308 Wilson Avenue, located approximately halfway between Jane and Keele Streets.

The Keith Loffler McAlpine Architects-designed project was first submitted for approval in December, 2018. The site lies immediately west of a recently reconstructed Ambulance Service Facility and roughly 350 metres west of and across the street from Humber River Hospital.

The applications propose to redevelop the three properties with a mid-rise rental building containing 36 one-bedrooms, 38 two-bedrooms, and 16 three-bedrooms, for a total of 90 apartments.

The 7,489 m² building will share a single driveway onto Wilson Avenue with the abutting development proposal to the west. A 71-space, two-level parking garage would be provided underground, with 72 bicycle spaces also proposed.

A total of 517 m² of indoor and outdoor amenity spaces are envisioned across the ground and 11th floors.
