That's Eastern Avenue in the image above, looking southeast, and this is one block east of Carlaw. The site's mostly surface parking at the moment, although the brick building you can see at the back of the rendering above is existing, is old (haven't looked it up yet), and has good bones. This is a solid improvement.

I hope this and a few other proposals along Eastern and Queen East move along. Eastern avenue is very dreary along this stretch and needs cheering up visually. I can envisage low rise offices such as this all along Eastern and north of Lake Shore. It would be a great alternative to a suburban location with downtown on your doorstep .

Kevric also plans to have two 14 storey buildings as part of this development property in the future:

65 HEWARD

Conveniently located in the heart of Toronto’s fastest growing neighborhood at the corner of Heward and Eastern Avenue just minutes from vibrant Queen Street East and Leslieville, 65 Heward is close to East Toronto’s key amenities as well as tech, creative and film industries. 65 Heward consist of a loft-style office building of approximatively 35,000 square feet and two film and television studios of 9200 sq. ft. and 9600 sq. ft. with flexible production office space and fully supported with all the amenities required to support a seamless production.

The complex, which currently has three two-storey buildings, will be renovated and expanded to make them more attractive to new quality tenants and attract larger production companies. Recent renovations in the office space building highlight the original brick and beam construction and incorporate bright and airy windows to maximize daylight exposure.

In addition to the three existing buildings, the 65 Heward includes a large amount of land. A development plan provides for the construction of a 6-storey office building as well as two 14-storey buildings.

Type of property: Office building and television studios, development project

Address: 65 Heward Avenue

As it happens, in about six weeks I'm going to be working on a series out of 65 Heward. The building recently became home to the Director's Guild of Canada (possibly the driving force for those recent renovations), but there's still significant space behind for production offices and studios. Looking forward to being able to walk to work for a change!

Exciting stuff. Please feel free to share any neat interior pics of the existing building if you can! :)
