Choice Properties REIT is planning a very large development at the No Frills in Mount Dennis near Black Creek Drive. It is to include a building that will be, by far, the tallest in Mount Dennis, at 49 storeys.
The proposed development includes seven towers, from 20–49 storeys, “as well as a new public street, a new private street and a privately owned publicly accessible space (POPS)”. In all, 2,356 new homes are planned.
The planners say that a grocery store will remain on site.
I’m not a planner, but this is, in my view, the kind of development we can bear: close to transit and the highway, high density but not on residential streets.
It is, however, a pity that the still-new York Rec wasn’t built larger, since it’s already always busy, and this is across the street.
