Site Size: ~4900m2/52000ft2

Context: To the immediate south are purpose built apartments in the 6/7s range, across the street are 2s townhomes, to the rear (east) are mostly 1s bungalows and the north is 1s retail.

This one may be reaching a bit on height given the neighbours and lack of immediate precedent, there's no MTSA or other special circumstance for this one. To be clear, I don't see anything intrinsically wrong w/this height here,
if the massing and site plan are done correctly, just noting a possible obstacle.

The reference point here will be a purpose-built rental of 12s in height, roughly 250m to the north.

I live close to this development. Obviously I'll spend more time looking at when the documents are up, but I'm excited for this.

The Rexall was built here maybe around 2010? It was rarely busy, and now Larry the Liquidator is in the same boat.

This is a better use of the land for sure.

* interesting note here, one additional height precedent I had forgotten about was cited in the Planning Report, 11s; for an un-built, but approved proposal on the lands just to the north.

im with the developer and we're using a platform called CoUrbanize to engage with the community. Feel free to check it out to learn more about this unique apartment project and engage with our team and other community members. https://courbanize.com/projects/1925vicpark/comments?ordering=-created

Welcome to UT!; and thanks for the post, and the link. That led me to the development website itself which is quite informative. I will post some of the images/details from your site below.

Ok, UT this site is getting more interesting.............it was an intriguing looking design from Partisans which, lets admit, we all wonder whether that will actually get built, in a spot like this......

But this is looking promising.........and some of the details are really well thought out.

So here's the website: https://www.1925vicpark.com/form I'm linking directly to the 'form' section which is about the building itself; there are other sections of the site as well.

From the above, these are some slides/images I thought worthy of discussion:

I like this idea; but will now ask our new member @jdiamond how they propose to manage snow/ice in the open-air corridors?
