Changes could be coming to Toronto’s Moss Park neighbourhood if a mixed-use tower at the intersection of Richmond and George is approved.

The Official Plan and Zoning By-law amendment application for the project was submitted to the City at the end of February and, if approved, the tower would stand 39-storeys and include a mix of retail, office space, and residential units.

Diamond Corp and Alterra teamed up to develop the project with Sweeny &CO on board as the architect.

Proposed to rise at 125 George Street, on the southeast corner of Richmond and George, the project would add to a neighbourhood that is currently experiencing a development push, with a number of other towers already under construction.

According to documents submitted to the City, the project would incorporate the façade of the current heritage building at 125 George Street and the retention of the existing 3-storey office building at 109 George Street.
