Plans for the mixed-use construction with an area for units were resubmitted to the City of Toronto. The programs were initially filed by Carlyle Communities, together with designs from RAW Design, last fall, have since been changed after receiving comments back from the City. The development that is proposed to bring new life to The Junction and would house a beautiful and modern 920m family playground and mixed-use areas. The revised proposal includes a total area of 50,538 square meters, where 3,258 square-meters are for an office area, and also 2,035 square-meters are for commercial spaces. This site would contain a total of 512 brand new units, and 37 would be affordable units. A total of 335 vehicular parking areas suggested above level and to be found along the railroad corridor.
The proposal submitted to the City also involved revisions to building massing, setbacks, stepbacks, unit layouts, unit mixes, amenity plans, and road and sidewalk designs, amongst others.
And in adherence to Section 37 of the Planning Act, which requires developers to provide community benefit within their applications that help "build healthy and strong neighborhoods," the proposal includes the affordable housing component, a public daycare center, and the public park in the southwest corner of their Junction property.
