Our Thoughts on the Project
Marlee Ave is ripe for development – it has the vibe, feel and potential to become “The Ossington” of midtown! This application is the second of the year for the strip (first being a series of stacked townhomes at Wenderly Ave), and atleast to us, a welcomed addition to the area.
In January 2018, we attended the community consultation and unfortunately many in the room didn’t share the same enthusiasm for the project as we did! There was a small handful of the usuals who flat out wanted no changes whatsoever. BUT there was also a larger group that were open to redevelopment, so long the height was brought down.
Personally, we think 9 storeys is perfect for the area! A short walk south on Marlee is where you’ll find several condos, built in the 70’s, with heights of over 20 storeys tall. We also like the use of red brick for the exterior, helps set it apart from yet another boring glass building.
From the sounds of it, it looks like the architects will be going back to the drawing board to makes changes to the proposal. Be sure to check back as we’ll be providing updates as more is known!
