View from Mount Seymour Parkway


Anthem Properties Group has applied to redevelop this property. The application as submitted proposes dividing the large site into four smaller sites, in order to develop approximately 341 homes in phases: 

  • Site one — an apartment building with 119 units
  • Site two — a series of townhouses with a total of 102 units
  • Site three — a series of townhouses with a total of 31 units
  • Site four — a rental apartment building with a total of 89 units (33 of which are to be rented at below market rates)

In partnership with Habitat for Humanity, one townhouse unit will be rented at below market rates.

Each site will have its own parking, to meet the need for residential and visitor parking. At this time, over 552 parking spaces are proposed across the project.
