411 Church Street condo

Another soaring condo in the works for Church St.

Over the next few years, Church Street's low-rise units will vanish to make room for massive new developments. There are already seven proposals for towers stretching more than 25-storeys, including a possible 49-storey condo at Church and Charles and a 27-storey academic building and residence at the south end of the Ryerson University campus.

The newest such proposal is for a 45-storey condo at 411 Church St. (at the corner of Wood Street), which is located across from the palatial Loblaws in the former Maple Leaf Gardens building. According to the project designs, created by architectural firm Page+Steele/IBI Group, the development will contain 583 residential units.

While this condo project would be replacing a parking lot, Urban Toronto notes the building's size might be a problem. The real estate-focused publication says a proposed development at 70 Carlton St. had to reduce its height, shrinking from 41 to 37 storeys.

Regardless of whether 411 Church proceeds as planned, the street will definitely see changes as the condo boom continues to roll in.
