It looks like Toronto may lose a No Frills on Front Street to make way for two new towers planned to compliment the block where the Globe and Mail centre sits.
One of the towers is a 39-story residential building, and the other is a 27-floor office building. There will be 310 units in the residential building and a small outdoor space, but the Toronto Design Review Panel is asking for more green space and maybe some rooftop public area.
Together, these buildings will replace the existing No Frills, Dollarama, LCBO and CIBC on the block that site on Front Street between Berkley Street and Princess Street. Some of the smaller retail shots at the top end of the block on King Street will still exist once the buildings are constructed.
Things could still change since parts of the buildings aren’t finalized, but since the development has been worked on since 2018, it seems like things will continue to inch forward. WZMH Architects are also designing both towers.
