If approved, a proposal for a massive redevelopment project will intensify the lands around a Scarborough GO station and create a new urban centre.
Republic Developments and Harlo Capital are proposing a mixed-use development on an approximately 8.9-hectare site at 3585-3595 St. Clair Avenue East. The proposal includes a master plan for 17 buildings between 15 and 42-storeys in height with base buildings up to 12-storeys. The development would contain 5818 condominium units, 309 rental apartment units, 15,321-square metres of retail space, 4,624-square metres of community space, 1.87-hectares of parkland, and three new public streets. Republic and Harlo are seeking an official plan amendment and rezoning approval to allow the project.
“The vision is to create a vibrant and complete transit-oriented community that responds to the needs of the city and local neighbourhood which are changing rapidly—especially as we’ve experienced the effects of COVID-19,”
Republic Developments president Matt Young told NRU.
“By optimizing existing infrastructure and adding appropriate density to an underutilized transit station (Scarborough GO), we can create a new gateway into Toronto—only 18 minutes away—and a new centre for the entire south Scarborough area.”
