Rendering submitted to the City of Toronto

A proposal has been submitted to City of Toronto planners for a 12-storey mixed-use condo development that would rise in the Tam O’Shanter-Sullivan neighbourhood in Scarborough.

Earlier this month, a rezoning application was submitted to the City on behalf of Impressions Group to redevelop the site at 3471 Sheppard Avenue East, which currently houses a 2-storey commercial and office plaza and a parking lot.

The 3,687 square-metre lot is located on the southwest corner of Sheppard Avenue East and Aragon Avenue, just east of the intersection of Warden and Sheppard avenues.

According to the proposal, the building will contain, two levels of below-grade parking, ground floor commercial space, and residential space on the second to twelfth floors.

The building will also house both indoor and outdoor amenity spaces for residents and visitors to use. The outdoor amenity space is located on the second and seventh floors and the indoor amenity space is located on the ground and second and third floors.
