13 Mar Altree Developments Proposes Mid-Rise at Forest Hill & St Clair
At the gateway to Toronto’s Forest Hill neighbourhood, Altree Developments has proposed the construction of a 9-storey luxury mid-rise building to replace six mansions at the intersection of St Clair Avenue West and Forest Hill Road. Comprised of 85 units, the residential project would be the third on this short stretch of St Clair west of Avenue Road to redevelop lower density housing, following in the footsteps of the recently completed ZIGG Condos across the street to the southwest, and the under-construction One Forest Hill across the street to the immediate east. The development, which will require a zoning bylaw amendment to be approved, may become known as Two Forest Hill, and would replace houses on properties at 202 through 208 St Clair West and 2 and 6 Forest Hill Road.
Units are proposed to range in size from 1,000 ft² to 4,000 ft² dependent on the number of bedrooms. In terms of unit mix, 55 two bedroom homes make up the majority of the tower with 20 one-bedroom and 10 three-bedroom units filling out the rest of the building. The majority of the units have expansive terraces. Of the 126 proposed underground parking spaces, 25 are equipped with electric vehicle infrastructure.
In terms of architecture, very little is information is available aside from the general massing and floor plan of the building, which features two stepbacks along the southern elevation and terracing fitting within a 45 degree angular plane on the northern elevation. Designed by Graziani and Corrazza Architects, it is not known what the plans are for the exterior the building at this point.
