This is what Cumberland St. in Yorkville is going to look like

Yorkville's  KingSett Capital-owned Cumberland Terrace site has been slated to be redeveloped for quite some time.

Now, a proposal for a multi-tower redevelopment is finally moving forward with a new rezoning application, according to Urban Toronto.

The plan was recently presented to Toronto's Design Review Panel (DRP), and it was applauded for its creativity

The newly submitted version of the plan, which is far from the first, proposes three residential towers as well as a brand new public square. 

The Janet Rosenberg + Studio-designed public square is proposed to include a reflecting pool, a canopy of string lighting, and a stairway providing access to a concourse level below.
