Across the street from the city’s iconic Trinity Bellwoods Park, a new low-rise development has been pitched along Queen Street West.
Last month, Dales Consulting submitted a site plan approval application to city planners on behalf of the developer to construct a six-storey, mixed-use building at 835 Queen Street West.
Located on the south side of Queen Street West on the corner of Queen and Niagara streets, the irregular, 3,123-square-foot development site in question is currently home to a two-storey building. On the ground floor sits a vacant commercial unit, topped by two rental suites.

The existing structure would be demolished and replaced by the new 21-unit condo building with commercial space at-grade, according to the application’s cover letter. The letter also details that the owner plans to apply for condominium approval while maintaining ownership of the commercial and residential units for rental purposes.
The collection would include six bachelor suites, 13 one-bedroom and two two-bedroom residences. No parking spaces will be provided.
Brick, pre-finished metal panels and pre-refinished wood panelling would make up the materials palette. Setbacks and varied wall height would make room for additional spaces within the structure.
“The replacement building is proposed to extend to the property line on Queen Street West, and a generous setback on Niagara Street is proposed, allowing for an enhanced public realm, including landscaped areas and a patio,” explains the proposal’s Heritage Impact Assessment, prepared by ERA Architects Inc.
