The proposed tower will contain

  •  42 bachelor units
  • 70 one bedroom units
  • 15 two bedroom units

The proposed units would be targeted to older adults and seniors, aged 59 and over.

The EYCC had previously opposed the building because of “built form, density, height, massing, site layout, shadow impact, proximity to the Humber River valley, access, parking and loading”.

In response, the applicant revised the plan with more setbacks, more open space, better wind design, fewer units, and a more amenity space, among other adjustments.

The development will be funded in part through the city’s affordability programs.

The plan will now go to City Council.
