Old Stonehenge Seeking Approval for Mid-Rise on Eglinton at Caledonia

With the new Crosstown LRT under construction along Eglinton Avenue, projects are being proposed all along the 19 km transit corridor. One in the Fairbank area of Toronto is a mid-rise at 2116 Eglinton Avenue West from developers Old Stonehenge Development Corporation. Pending the success of a Site Plan Approval application, this 9-storey building with 104 residential units would be built halfway between the Fairbank and Caledonia stations of the new transit line.

The proposal would see a total gross floor area of 7,987 , with all of this being residential use, although 10 units on the ground floor facing Eglinton Avenue are all designed at Live/Work spaces, so there will be some semi-commercial space. Additionally, there will be 82.50 of landscaped open space.

The total of 104 total units would include 7 studios, 65 one-bedrooms, 24 two-bedrooms, and 8 three-bedrooms. Of the 10 live-work units, 8 are one-bedrooms and 2 are two-bedrooms. A total of 26 parking spots are proposed, 23 of them below grade on a single underground level while 3 are open surface parking spaces, 2 of which are for car share parking. Access to the loading and parking is accessible from the existing laneway at the rear, which will be widened as part of the development process. There are 104 bicycle parking spaces proposed for residents.
