Sherway Gardens is undergoing a large multi-building development, with owner Cadillac Fairview planning to start with four storeys.
The project’s updated blueprints were announced in early November, but renderings released recently give a sneak peak at what’s to come in the first phase of the massive complex.
The first phase of the project will see the development of two new condominium buildings and two residential rental buildings ranging in height from 30 to 45 storeys on the north side of Sherway Gardens. The four buildings will contain a total of 1,578 residential units, as well as retail space and services, and will cover a total of 1.28 million square feet.
The towers will be built on top of low- and mid-rise podiums with shops and community space. Cadillac Fairview is also thinking of building a daycare in one of the podiums of the skyscraper.
A 3,061-square-metre public park, a private urban plaza fronting an internal private road, and a vast landscaped zone along The Queensway will be located outside.
The vacant area of the mall that originally housed Holt Renfrew will be included into Phase 1, with the bottom floor of one of the towers connecting to a new mall entrance.
The second phase of the Sherway Gardens development will see the construction of numerous mid-rise podiums with towers above, housing 2,800 residential apartments, 10,000 square metres of office space, and 2,000 square metres of retail on the northeast corner of the property.
