Developer Menkes have resubmitted their development proposal for what could become the tallest buildings in the rapidly growing Flemingdon Park neighbourhood.
Located at 793 Don Mills Road near the south-east corner of the Don Mills and Eglinton intersection, an initial application was submitted to the City in 2022 calling for four towers reaching heights of 56, 49, 45, and 22 storeys. The revised proposal sees height increases across the board, proposing 60, 57, 50 and 45 storey towers up to a height of over 202 metres.
In total, the project would contain 2,655 residential units across a mix of unit types, ranging from studios to three-bedroom units. 1,103 parking spaces and 2,700 bicycle spaces are also proposed, along with a modest parkland dedication fronting Don Mills Road.
Sweeney&Co have been retained as the projects architects, along with Oak Design Group as landscape designers and the Goldberg Group as planners.
The existing block is currently occupied by the Foresters Building, a 22-storey office tower constructed in 1966, which would be retained as part of the development. The new towers would replace a 4-storey elevated parking structure and existing surface grade parking surrounding the site. The project is expected to be constructed in phases, begging with buildings C and D on the eastern end of the site.
The development builds on the rapidly intensifying Don Mills and Eglinton area, which has seen more than 40 high-rises proposed over the last several years. Located in one of Toronto’s most significant, Major Transit Station Areas (MTSA’s), the area will be serviced by two future rapid transit lines, Line 5 Eglinton and the Ontario Line, which will converge at nearby Science Centre station.
