28 Bathurst Street
Build Toronto (now part of CreateTO) has an application in with the City of Toronto for a new mixed-use proposal with residential and retail components, along with a new public park space, a new tree-lined public street and public sidewalks, as well as a shared bike lane. This application is currently under review at the City.
Historically the site served heavy industrial purposes, so a key component of a residential development would be to incorporate an environmental remediation program to ensure any contamination is properly managed.
