On August 30, 2021, the City of Toronto received a Zoning By-law Amendment application from Stowe Holdings Ltd. and Mountsfield Properties Inc. for a mixed-use development for assembled properties at 56, 58, and 60 Fieldway Road just south of the new Civic Centre area of Etobicoke.
The 1.723-hectare (4.26 acre) site is located on the north side of Fieldway Road east of Kipling Avenue, southeast of the intersection of Bloor Street West and Dundas Street West. The northern edge of the site borders a narrow hydro corridor which has been paved for Kipling subway station parking, and it in turn borders the CPR Milton subdivision rail corridor. The site is bisected by a CPRail spur which curves south from the corridor and into the light industrial area to the south near the east end of the site. The west side of the site where the buildings will go is currently home to a truck dealership, while a vehicle repair shop sits on the east end of the site. Its land is proposed to be given to the City for a park.
The proposed development is comprised of a 10-storey mid-rise building and three towers of 22, 32, and 35 storeys, and is designed by TACT architecture.
Together the buildings would include a total of 1,149 residential units, 935m² of office space and 432m² of childcare space. Residential units would be comprised of 36 studio units (3%), 663 one-bedroom units (58%), 334 two-bedroom units (29%) and 116 three-bedroom units (10%).
Total gross floor area of the development would be 91,397m², with an overall density of 5.3 FSI. The new public park space at the east end of the site is 2,426m² in area, while of the west side of the site, two pedestrian POPS (Privately Owned Publicly accessible Spaces) are proposed. The plans include parking space for 641 motor vehicles and 922 bicycles.
The taller buildings would be situated at the westernmost end of the site, nearest to Kipling Station. At 35 storeys, the tallest would be 120.1 metres including the mechanical penthouse. It would be comprised of a 6-storey base building, which would step back to 9 storeys on the west side and terrace at levels 32 to 35 on the west building face. The west building face of the podium is orientated parallel to the west property line and set back 8.5 metres. The building would contain approximately 935m² of office space on the west side of the building adjacent to a POPS pedestrian pathway connecting Fieldway Road to the south parking lot of Kipling Station. The main residential lobby of the building would be located on the south side of the building on Fieldway Road.
The building heights would then step down, moving east, transitioning to the residential neighbourhood to the east of the site. The buildings would be set back from the south property line along Fieldway Road by between 14 and 20 metres. The rail spur—access across which is yet to be determined other than by the existing sidewalk—will divide the buildings from the public park.
The development also proposes a possible pedestrian connection over the railway corridor adjacent to the site, connecting it to other coming developments in the recently cleared new Etobicoke Civic Centre area, where the City is preparing to move its local services and build new community facilities in a soon-to-be-built Henning Larsen-designed building.
