A pair of historic buildings in Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood could soon be part of the base of a new mid-rise condo.
A zoning by-law amendment has been submitted to city planners regarding a mixed-use development with 44 units at 1110-116 Avenue Road.
The building site spans 1,398 metres and features four houses currently protected under the Ontario Heritage Act as part of the East Annex Heritage Conservation District, according to Livabl.
The two-and-a-half-floor building features an Engel & Volkers on the ground floor and two residential units. The other side of the building features a vacant commercial space and a rental apartment.
If the plan is approved, the building will feature 44 residential units, including two three-bedroom townhouses, 13 one-bedroom, 11 two-bedroom and 20 three-bedroom condos.
The size of units would range from 624 sq. ft. to 1,291 sq. fit. The plan outlines how the street-facing portion of the existing buildings would be preserved with the new building constructed above it. The ground level would also feature a valet room, bicycle parking and building utility rooms. In total, the plan outlines roughly 2,212 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity space, including a terrace.
Other features include underground parking with 64 spaces, several double-height car stackers and 45 spots for bicycles.
As with all developments, it’s unclear if the city of Toronto will approve this proposal.
