Ferrow Real Estate has submitted Official Plan Amendment, Zoning By-law Amendment, and Site Plan Approval applications to the City of Toronto for three properties addressed to 6200 Yonge Street, and 11 and 15 Moore Park Avenue. On the southwest corner of the two streets in Toronto's borough of North York, a 25-storey, ZO1 Architects-designed mixed-use apartment building is proposed for the site. It would include 347 residential units and a sizeable daycare centre at its base.

The site is located a block south of the massive Centerpoint Mall redevelopment proposal that we covered last week. Currently on the site is a single-storey commercial strip plaza that is home to multiple small retailers plus two single-family homes. Off of Yonge Street, which is predominantly low-rise commercial on neighbouring blocks, the greater surrounding area is comprised of detached homes, a school, and a\ park.

The 347 units are proposed in a mix of 195 one-bedroom/1-bedroom + den units (56%), 114 two-bedroom/2-bedroom + den units (33%), and 38 three-bedroom units (11%). The proposal has a GFA of 25,092m² with an FSI of 7.2.

 The main pedestrian access to the residential portion building is proposed along Yonge near the corner with Moore Park, with a secondary entrance located on Moore Park at the west end of the podium. The daycare space would occupy just over 1,000m² of the ground level, with 760m² of indoor space fronting on Yonge, and 262 m² of outdoor space proposed ton the rear. No retail units are proposed.

A total of 1,539m² of amenity space is proposed; 754m² of it indoors, and 785m² of it outdoors, with a conjoined outdoor rooftop and indoor amenity space on its 8th level, while the lobby, pet spa, and loading area would occupy the ground level of the building along with eight ground-level accessed residential units fronting onto Moore Park and the daycare.

Vehicles would access the development from a private driveway off of Moore Park. Entrance to the 3-level, 174-space underground garage would be from the end of the driveway. The garage would also house 261 bike-parking spaces. Five pick-up-drop-off spaces are proposed at grade for the daycare. 

The TTC currently operates 14 bus routes that stop immediately in front of the property, providing service to Finch subway station which is 1.3 km south of the site. Approximately 500 metres north of the site is the planned Steeles station on the TTC Line 1 extension.
