You might be familiar with Yonge Street and Davisville Avenue for its proximity to the Davisville TTC station, the Mount Pleasant Cemetery and the host of retailers lining Yonge Street.
The Midtown intersection has captured the interest of big-name developers lately, who’ve submitted a series of high-rise applications for the area in recent weeks.
Here’s a breakdown of five recent development applications we’ve spotted for Yonge Street and Davisville Avenue.
Crowned as Canada’s second-tallest builder by storey counts, Menkes Developments Ltd. has proposed a 28-storey residential tower just west of Mount Pleasant Road.
If approved, the high-rise would provide 260 units. Above the building’s five-storey podium, a large indoor-outdoor amenity facility on the sixth floor would be constructed. The project would also contain 44 parking spaces in a three-level underground garage.
An existing apartment building could share its lot with a new 39-storey residential high-rise. Built in a “T” formation, the new development would comprise a 12- and six-storey podium with a 27-story tower component above.
Combined with the existing apartment building’s units, there would be a total of 771 residential units on the site.
Known as the builder behind The United Bldg. Condos near University Avenue and Dundas Street West, Davpart has proposed to construct two residential towers at 1910-1944 Yonge Street.
Reaching heights of 45-storeys, the towers would contain 880 condo units and recessed balconies throughout. A 10-storey podium would offer retail and office space, amenity facilities and 102 rental replacement units.
On the west side of Yonge Street, a series of buildings with retail and office uses could be demolished to make way for a 14-storey development with 164 condo units.
Retail space would occupy the ground floor, with offices and daycare facilities on the second level. Terraced balconies, created by architectural setbacks in the building’s design, would be included along the front, north and south building facades.
Two buildings would be demolished to allow the development of a 39-storey tower with a four-to-five-storey podium just north of Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
The upper levels of the podium would overhang slightly to provide shelter and weather protection to pedestrians below. Office space would be included in the podium as well as amenities and residential units.
