Capitol Management Corp has submitted Zoning By-law Amendment and Site Plan Approval applications to the City of Toronto for the construction of a 35-storey, Turner Fleischer Architects-designed, mixed-use building that would sit on the three properties of 836 and 838 Roselawn, and 131 Lyon Court, northwest of the intersection of Eglinton Avenue West and Allen Road.

The site is currently developed with two 4-storey rental apartment buildings and one 2-storey mixed-use building, comprised of 53 rental units, and associated driveways, surface vehicle parking, and landscaping.

The proposed development is generally L-shaped as per the shape of the site, and comprised of a 7-storey base above which would rise a stepped 28-storey tower, for a total building height of 35 storeys. The base, which would occupy virtually the entire site along Roselawn Avenue, would have a height of 26 metres, consistent with the existing residential building located immediately to its east. Floors 8 to 15 would transition between the base and the tower in a slab form that is similar to the forms of the surrounding apartment neighbourhood.

Glencairn station is similarly an 10-minute walk, but to the north of the site. The site is also within a 700-metre travel distance of the Allen Road, which offers quick access to the region's 400-series highways.
