The proposed development, at 2346 Weston Rd., formerly submitted as a rental highrise in early 2018, was resubmitted in March as a 15-storey, 127-unit accessible building for residents 59 years of age and older.

The rental costs for the development are based on the city’s current definition of affordable housing, which states that rent and utilities together must be equal to or less than the average market rent in Toronto.

For the new development, that means a one-bedroom apartment, which will be approximately 550 square feet, will cost a tenant $1,185 per month, plus utilities, according to the building’s developers, Project and Construction Management Inc. (PCM).

Have seen a lot of different styles for forming for excavation, but not this one

Totally unique (diagonally) vertical rakers for an excavation in Toronto! I assume this means no tieback agreements with the owners on either side… but maybe high on the bank over the Humber, they wouldn't have been sufficient anyway, especially on the west side? Anyone with more knowledge, please post!

I thought those were "straws" sucking out a waterlogged excavation site...

We used to complain a lot about condo projects with ridiculous marketing names like Beyond the Sea Condos or the obnoxious old fad of referencing place names in New York City, like Gramercy Park. This project has a striking and poetic name that is local, which is quite refreshing.

Interesting. This is new info for me. :)

The building will be called Carrying Place Vista, after The Toronto Carrying Place, a First Nations trail that historically ran near the site of the new building.
