Reimagining 77 Erskine Avenue into an exciting new residential community.

The Location

The 77 Erskine site is located in the Yonge-Eglinton neighbourhood, approximately 500 metres northeast of the Yonge-Eglinton intersection.

The Proposal

We are proposing to redevelop the existing site with a new transit-oriented, high-rise residential development. Features of the proposal include:


The site is within walking distance of multiple higher order transit routes. The Eglinton TTC subway station is a 6-minute walk from the subject site and will also serve as a major transit hub, accommodating the interchange of the Yonge subway line with the future Yonge station scheduled to open by 2024. The intersection of Eglinton Avenue East and Mount Pleasant Road will also include a new LRT station within a 5-minute walk from the site.

Thoughtful Design

The proposed building has been designed by award-winning Toronto-based architecture firm, gh3*, to be a high-quality and thoughtful addition to the community.

New Housing Options

The site is an ideal location to add new homes given its proximity to transit as well as neighbourhood amenities and services. The application proposes to demolish the existing 4 storey building and construct a new 35-storey apartment building containing 377 dwelling units, inclusive of 36 rental replacement units, representing full replacement of the existing rental units.

Improved Public Realm

This proposal includes a mid-block connection to enhance pedestrian circulation and access to surrounding open spaces.
