In South Etobicoke’s Long Branch community, a proposed mid-rise development could deliver condominium suites in addition to a new restaurant.
Last month, a rezoning application was submitted to city planners to construct a six-storey condo building with 19 suites at 3471 Lake Shore Boulevard West. The architect and developer, KLMA and Petrogold, have collaborated on another mid-rise project, located at 2630 Kipling Avenue.

The development site in question sits on the southeast corner of Lake Shore Boulevard West and Thirty First Street, covering an area of 5,780 square feet. A one-storey commercial building and a surface parking lot fronting Lake Shore Boulevard currently occupy the lot.
The application seeks to redevelop the site into a mixed-use building that would encompass 17,319 square feet of gross floor area. Non-residential space is proposed for the ground and second floors, which, according to architectural drawings, appears to be designated as a restaurant.
A residential lobby would be built along Thirty First Street, with another entrance provided from Lake Shore Boulevard West. Elevators and a garbage room would also share the ground level. A sheltered bicycle parking area with 14 spaces would be built on the west side of the property.
The breakdown of the 19 condo suites would include eight bachelor suites, nine one-bedroom and two two-bedroom units. According to the application’s data sheet, the suites would average 473, 699 and 871 square feet in size, respectively. Several of the residences would include private balconies and terraces, explains the planning rationale, written by Evans Planning Inc.
Parking would be shared with an adjacent development at 105 Thirty First Street, situated south of the property. Twenty-three residential parking spaces would be provided via a “mechanical stacked parking facility” that would exist within the proposed building, plus two additional surface parking spaces on the adjacent property.
In the same area, a 915-square-foot outdoor amenity space would be provided for residents of both buildings to use, located at 105 Thirty First Street.
