The transformation of Yonge Street in midtown Toronto continues with a new mid-rise proposal by Triage Development at 2674 through 2704 Yonge, nearly halfway between Eglinton and Lawrence Avenues.

To be known as 1 Alexandra, the Zoning By-law Amendment application calls for a 9-storey mixed-use building on the site. Designed by Studio JCI, it would feature retail at ground level, and residential suites, reaching a height of approximately 31 m to the top of the elevator overrun.

A total of 127 units are proposed, including 96 new residential units with a mix of 40 one-bedroom units, 40 two-bedroom units, and 16 three-bedroom units. 31 rental replacement units are also proposed, with 23 one-bedroom units and 8 two-bedroom units, matching suites in the existing 3-storey building that currently occupies the south portion of the site.

Two levels of underground parking are proposed with 68 spaces for residents and 14 spaces designated for visitors and commercial uses. A total of 130 bicycle parking spaces are also being proposed in the new building.

Approximately 566 m² of retail space is proposed on the ground floor along the Yonge Street frontage. The proposal also seeks to expand Snider Parkette at its northwest corner (which abuts the proposal site), and enhance access and visibility from Yonge Street through a publicly accessible walkway and open space adjacent to the south side of the proposed building.

Architectural plans show the proposed building to be slightly set back from both Yonge Street and Alexandra Boulevard to achieve six-metre wide, tree-lined boulevards with expanded 2.1 m public sidewalks, and restored Alexandra Gates.

A total of 418 m² of indoor and outdoor amenity space is also proposed, located on the ground floor (adjacent the public park) and 7th floor with an outdoor terrace. A dog-wash and pet relief area is also provided on the ground floor.
