An existing low-rise rental apartment building just north of Yonge and Eglinton could be torn down to make way for a 22-storey condo and rental tower.
Last week, a rezoning application was submitted to city planners to construct a 22-storey tower with 213 residential units at 109 Erskine Avenue. The architect, RAW Design Inc, is well known for its work across a large number of condo and rental projects across the city, including The Rhodes and Fifty Scollard Condos.
The development site in question sits on the south side of Erskine Avenue, one building west of Redpath Avenue. Rectangular in shape, the 18,696-square-foot lot is currently occupied by surface parking and a three-and-a-half-storey rental apartment building with 31 units.

The proposal seeks to demolish the existing building and develop a new 22-storey project on the site with 31 rental replacement units and 182 condominium-tenure suites for a total of 213 units. The rental units would occupy the second to fifth floors, while the condos would inhabit the ground level, and from the sixth to the 22nd floor.
Of the total units, the breakdown would consist of 21 bachelor suites, 117 one-bedroom, 52 two-bedroom and 23 three-bedroom suites. The unit sizes would range from 430 to 947 square feet, according to the proposal’s data sheet.
Indoor amenity space is proposed for the ground and seventh floor, along with a seventh-floor amenity terrace that connects directly into the indoor amenity area. The terrace is said to host “moveable furniture to allow for a range of programming for users of all ages,” according to the planning rationale by WND Associates.
Two levels of underground parking would provide 41 resident and eight visitor vehicle spaces, accessed by a ramp at the rear of the site. According to the application’s cover letter, the proposal would also include 214 bicycle spaces.
