A rental tower in Toronto’s Cedarvale neighbourhood could make way for a high-rise development with 279 new units.
Earlier this month, a zoning by-law amendment application was submitted to city planners to construct a 28-storey residential building at 40 Raglan Avenue. Hazelview Investments, the developer on the project, recently became involved in the 2,000-unit master-planned Bloor & Dufferin community that is slated for Brockton Village.
The development site is on the west side of Raglan Avenue, just northwest of St. Clair Avenue West and Bathurst Street. The lot is occupied by a seven-storey rental apartment building and surface parking area, which according to the application’s planning rationale, would be demolished.
The new 28-storey high-rise would include a six-storey base building with five two-storey integrated
townhouse units on the ground floor. Every townhouse would include a recessed private patio as well as direct access from in and outside the building. The proposal includes plans for a 168 square-metre public park, which the majority of the townhomes would front onto.
The residential lobby, located in the northeast corner of the podium, would lend access to dog wash facilities, a concierge, mailroom and leasing office.
Of the 279 proposed in the development, the breakdown would include 40 one-bedroom, 116 one-bedroom-plus-den, 41 two-bedroom units, 53 two-bedroom-plus-den and 29 three-bedroom units. Sixty-two of the residences would serve as rental replacement units. All of the suites would include inset private balconies.
A total of 1,124 square metres of indoor and outdoor amenity space would be added into the project, including outdoor facilities on the 7th, 12th and 28th levels.
A three-level underground parking garage would house 98 parking spaces in addition to 279 bicycle parking spots. A car-share space would also be added on site.
