145 St. George
Tenblock is the developer and manager of the development process. Any questions related to the redevelopment of the property should be directed through this website.
There is a 12-storey purpose-built rental building with 130 units on site, built in 1959. The property also includes underground parking and landscaped areas along the street frontages.
As of right now, nothing. We are still very early in the process and do not have any of the required approvals to begin construction. Tenants will remain in their current units where no changes will occur other than regular and ongoing maintenance work. Tenblock is committed to keeping tenants informed throughout the process and encourages them to reach out should they have any questions or feedback.
Our plan is to redevelop the site with one 29-storey residential building including 398 residential apartments. The building will include 130 rental replacement and 12 new affordable apartments, and introduce a new privately-owned publicly accessible space (POPS) along St. George Street.
All of the 130 purpose-built rental units will be replaced on site in the new development. All tenants who live at 145 St. George when the application was submitted and when the notice to vacate is distributed later in the process, will have the right to return to one of the new rental replacement units. To learn more about the rental replacement process and your rights as a tenant, reach out through the contact page.
A key feature of the proposal is the introduction of a privately-owned publicly accessible space (POPS) along St. George, as well as new landscaping along Prince Arthur. The proposal has taken care to retain as many of the mature trees as possible that exist on site today.
The proposal would include 1,592 m2 of amenity space. We are still very early in the process and we will continue to explore with tenants and the City what types of amenities could be a part of the proposal. We expect to have more details later on in the process and we will update this website when we have more details to share.
The final report recommending approval of the Zoning By-law Amendment and Rental Housing Demolition applications was adopted by Toronto City Council on July 19, 2023. The final by-laws were enacted by City Council for the Zoning By-law Amendments in July 2023.
We look forward to continue working with the City and community as we progress through the Site Plan Approvals process.
While the final report recommending approval of the Zoning By-law Amendment and Rental Housing Demolition applications was adopted by Toronto City Council on July 19, 2023, there are still several steps to complete before construction could begin, including advancing through the Site Plan Approval application and attaining permits, and there is no exact timing estimate at this time.
Current rent will not increase as a result of this development proposal. The standard increases allowed through the Residential Tenancy Act still apply.
This website will be where you can learn about any updates to the proposal, ask questions, and provide feedback. We encourage the community to use this digital tool as the go to resource for the redevelopment process. We will be sure to post any upcoming events for stakeholders to get involved.
