50-64 Merton Street is a high-rise mixed-use development proposal located in close proximity to Davisville TTC station. The surrounding neighbourhood has experienced significant growth in recent years, and the proposal seeks to capitalize on the site’s proximity to both Midtown and Downtown Toronto, in addition to retail, amenities, parks and open spaces.
The proposal consists of a 39-storey mixed-use development containing replacement office space to preserve local employment opportunities, as well as approximately 443 residential dwelling units. The building would provide a renewed and expanded public realm along the north edge of Merton Street, and protects for a potential future north-south mid-block connection linking Merton Street to Balliol Street.
Urban Strategies is acting as the planning and urban design consultant for the active Zoning By-law Amendment application. For this rezoning submission, Urban Strategies provided a Planning & Urban Design Justification Report, a Sun/Shadow Study and a Public Consultation Strategy.
