Development proposals for intensifying Yonge Street through Midtown continue to be received by the City of Toronto. Recently, Nivlog Investments Ltd submitted Official Plan Amendment and Zoning By-law Amendment applications to the City for an assembly of properties at 2039, 2045, and 2049 Yonge Street and 40-50 Tullis Drive in order to permit site-specific zoning requirements to facilitate the development of a superkül-designed, 11-storey, mixed-use building with retail on Yonge and townhouse units facing the neighbourhood at the back.The FSI would be 4.4.

The site is irregularly shaped and currently is home to low-rises with street-front retail along Yonge Street, and detached homes on Tullis Drive. All of the current buildings would be demolished in order to make way for the new development.

Toronto's Official Plan splits the site into two designations; the Yonge Street properties are in an area designated for mixed use, while the Tullis Drive properties are in an area designated as neighbourhoods.

The proposal is comprised of an 11-storey mid-rise building that would front onto Yonge, while 7 three-storey townhouses would front onto Tullis. The two sections are linked by a single-storey base building that includes shared uses such as amenity space, underground parking access, and a loading area which is internal to the building for garbage pickup.

The complex would have a total gross floor area of 10,342m², comprised of 9,942m² of residential uses and 400m² of retail spaces that would front onto Yonge Street.

Above the ground floor, the mid-rise would house a total of 125 residential units, including 76 one-bedrooms, 36 two-bedrooms, and 6 three-bedrooms. The mid-rise building would provide a total of 313m² of indoor amenity space, while 348m² of outdoor amenity space would be found on the roof of the single-storey link section between the mid-rise and townhouses. The rooftop of the mid-rise building would be comprised of a mechanical penthouse, and green roof landscaping of which would not be part of the amenity spaces.

The seven proposed townhouse units fronting on Tullis would each also have a entrance at their rear connecting to a common interior corridor which would allow access to the underground garage as well as the complex's amenities.

The proposal is approximately 400 metres to both Eglinton and Davisville subway stations, both on Line 1, while the Crosstown LRT is also expected to serve Eglinton station starting from about a year from now. The Yonge 97 bus also serves the street out front of the proposal.
