The site consists of a car dealership (21 Broadview), in addition to several 1-2 storey single-detached, semi-detached and rowhouse dwellings along Broadview Avenue (35-53 Broadview). At 344 Eastern Avenue is another commercial property, CARSTAR Express. The rear 14.5 m of 18-34 & 40 Lewis Street provide an appropriate transition to the neighbours to the east of the site. The balance of the Lewis Street properties will be be entirely maintained.
Streetcar Developments & Dream are partnering to bring new life to the lands at 21-53 Broadview Avenue, 344 Eastern Avenue, and the rear 14.5 metres of 18-34 & 40 Lewis Street. Rooted in the context of its neighbourhood, this project builds on the existing identity of the Riverside area and celebrates the site’s prominent position at the corner of Broadview & Eastern.
Designed to act as a visual gateway for the neighbourhood, this Danish-designed building will focus on bringing architecture that reflects the existing area, both completing and complementing the existing streetscape, while providing high quality urban homes and retail spaces.
We are excited to work with the Riverside community on this project to facilitate change that is exciting, positive, and listens to the needs and interests of its community members.
Streetcar Developments and Dream have partnered to facilitate a new vision for our site at Broadview and Eastern. As experienced developers in Toronto and beyond, we are excited to continue to support the city’s efforts in improving pedestrian experiences and building additional housing options near transit. Streetcar and Dream have been active in the Riverside & Leslieville and West Don Lands neighbourhoods for many years. We are looking forward to working with the community over the course of this development application process.
We have hired world renowned architects CEBRA to lead the design of this landmark project. Based in Denmark, the CEBRA team brings experience from around the globe to help us support Torontonians desire for “not another glass building.” We are very excited to have them as part of the team, helping us to think outside the box when it comes to the design of the building as well as how we program spaces. CEBRA will be working with local architectural firm Kasian to provide local Toronto knowledge and how that can contribute to our design.
The proposal includes the redevelopment of the site with a 12-storey mid-rise, mixed-use building.
A 466 m2 Public Park will be dedicated to the City of Toronto on site, at 344 Eastern Avenue.
The proposal includes 340 residential units and 876 m2 of commercial space. Parking will be located underground and include 82 residential spaces and 20 retail/visitor spaces.
The introduction of retail space at grade, world class design, and public realm features supporting safety and a walkable neighbourhood will dramatically improve the existing condition of the site. This will be accomplished through things like landscaping, a public park, and new sidewalks.
An application was submitted to the City of Toronto on September 3, 2021. This submission begins the formal review process, which will take many months. We encourage you to continue to check the Project Status page of this website to stay up to date on where we are in the process.
The development application review process takes time. We are still very early in the process. The application submission made on September 3, 2021 begins the formal review process with the City of Toronto. This process typically takes anywhere from 18-24 months before a decision is made by City Council. Once construction begins, it would take ~2 years. These timelines can and will change; they are a best estimate given our current stage in the process.
This website will be where you can learn about any updates to the proposal, ask questions, and provide feedback. We will be sure to post any upcoming events for stakeholders to get involved.
