The Development Site consists of the lands fronting onto Steeles Avenue East and will consist of two proposed residential buildings. The Master Plan Area is located within a Regional Corridor/Key Development Area, Intensification Area, the Metrolinx Steeles Mobility Hub, and is in proximity to the proposed Yonge Street Subway extension. The proposal will contribute to the intent of the Thornhill Secondary Plan to re-urbanize the Yonge Street and Steeles Avenue Corridor, as well as contribute to the planned significant levels of high residential and employment development within a Major Transit Station Area. The proposed Master Plan Area will contemplate a landscape area and private green space.
An attractive architectural design and a dynamic range of materials are proposed to reflect a high level of quality and contribute to the existing and planned character of the neighborhood. The subject land is within close proximity to the Yonge Street and Steeles Avenue East Gateway Hub where the future extension of the subway line is planned and, as such, the proposed development will be an important component to the built form along Steeles Avenue. As a result, the architectural design of exceptional quality is proposed. The building design will provide visual interest through a combination of fac ade materials and a mixture of neutral colors with wood as an accent for a unique and eye-catching frontage on Steeles Avenue East.
