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 341 units. The building will include 130 rental replacement units 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 719.5 m2 of indoor amenity space and 514.1 m2 of outdoor 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.
Applications were submitted for a Zoning By-law Amendment, Site Plan Control, and Rental Housing Demolition to the City of Toronto on May 17, 2021. We will update the community as we move through the various stages of the development process.
The development application review process takes time. We are still very early in the process. On May 14, 2021 applications were submitted for a Zoning By-law Amendment, Site Plan Control, and Rental Housing Demolition. This submission began the formal review process with the City of Toronto. This process typically takes anywhere from 18-24 months before we could receive an approval of the Zoning By-law Amendment and Rental Housing Demolition request. From there construction would likely begin 6-12 months after, taking approximately 2-3 years. These timelines can and will change; they are a best estimate given our current stage in the process.
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.
