There are now more details to share since the original rezoning application filed in 2018 for the site, adjacent to Admiral Seymour Elementary.

The four-storey building will consist of 13 one-bedroom and 37 family-oriented two and three-bedroom homes with a family-friendly courtyard and children’s play area. 

On the ground floor are several commercial/creative production spaces, with a mews through the building featuring a striking public art component.
