2636, 2640, 2642, and 2654 Eglinton Avenue West and 1856 and 1856A Keele Street is located within the dynamic Keele and Eglinton community, immediately next to the future Keelesdale Station on the Eglinton Crosstown LRT.

The Proposal

We are proposing to redevelop the existing site with a new mixed-use, transit-oriented development. Features of the proposal include:


Given that the site is next to the Keelesdale Crosstown station, we are proposing to redevelop the site with a new mixed-use activity, and a better pedestrian experience, to building that will bring new homes, retail the neighbourhood. This new building will be a transformative development and key focal point for the neighbourhood at the intersection of Keele Street and Eglinton Avenue West.

Thoughtful Design

The proposed building has been designed by award-winning Toronto-based architecture firm, gh3*, to be a high-quality and thoughtful addition to the community.

New Housing Options

The site is an ideal location to add new homes given its proximity to rapid transit as well as neighbourhood amenities and services. With 370 new residential units in a mix of unit sizes and types, the proposed development will provide greater housing choice to those seeking to live in, or move to, the area—adjacent to a major transit station.

Improved Streetscape

This proposal includes retail spaces, which wrap around the building at street level. This modern retail space will create and maintain an animated and pedestrian-oriented experience along both Eglinton and Keele, further supported by widened sidewalks and new landscaping features.
