Osmington Gerofsky and WJ Properties Propose 4 Infill Towers in Flemingdon Park

Toronto’s Flemingdon Park neighborhood could soon see a brand new four-building residential development from Osmington Gerofsky Development Corp and WJ Properties. 10 Grenoble, proposed at the corner of St. Dennis Drives and Grenoble Drives, would feature 34-, 42-, 46-, and 52-story towers spread across two existing rental buildings on the property.

WJ currently owns and maintains the two rental buildings currently on the property; 7 St Dennis Drive, which is 17 stories tall and houses 278 units, and 10 Grenoble Drive, which is also 17 stories but has 284 units.

These buildings, arranged in a tower-in-the-park style on the site with expansive landscaped areas and surface parking lots around them, would remain in place while the four new buildings would be constructed on the underutilized portions of the property.

10 Grenobles towers, designed by architects Alliance, would offer the area a total of 2,197 new units.

In addition to the four towers, the proposal includes significantly upgraded outdoor spaces, including a new public park, an off-leash dog area, a multipurpose half-court, a children’s play area, and an outdoor fitness area. The new public park would separate the existing lot into two distinct locations, and more addresses than “10 Grenoble” would be used on the lots.

The outdoor areas are designed by the MBTW Group.

At street level, the new buildings would feature multiple mid-block pedestrian links and pathways with wide sidewalks landscaped with colorful plants.

The new density is being proposed for the property as Flemingdon Park will receive a stop on the new Ontario Line rapid transit railway which is just beginning construction, and will also be served by the Science Center station on the Eglinton Line 5 by this time next year , which will soon complete the construction. The Ontario Line is scheduled to open around 2030, with 15 stops stretching from Exhibition Place in the southwest to the Ontario Science Center station, alternating with Line 5. Flemingdon Park Station, designed by HDR Architects, will be on the west side of Don Mills Road, north of Overlea Boulevard and just southwest of that location.

Several other densification proposals nearby were also prompted by the upcoming S-Bahn stations. You can locate them with pins on the UrbanToronto map.
