A No Frills grocery store and a Mobil gas station located near Toronto’s Black Creek and Eglinton area could soon be home to a substantial seven tower condo development site.
The area currently predominantly features low-rise buildings, but the arrival of the upcoming Eglinton Crosstown LRT has attracted the development of this high-rise project.
The Choice Properties REIT’s proposal to the city of Toronto outlines seven residential, mixed-use buildings with heights ranging from 20 to 49 stories. The several buildings are set to house 2,356 residential units, though the proposal doesn’t outline if these are condos or rental units.

Given the height of these buildings, they’ll likely stand out significantly from the much lower buildings located in the area.
No Frills is expected to remain open during the long-term development project given it’s one of the last locations that will be redeveloped in the area. Images of the towers show off an unnamed grocery store present in the redevelopment site.
Other complex features include 4,500 sq. ft. of retail space, a new open park space that includes an off-leash area for dogs and a massive parking garage with 1,845 spaces.
