They moved! That's news to me. I guess I haven't been in a while
Is the slightly taller building mid-block also part of this redev project? If so then Fairways will be a weird outlier.
The application proposes to rezone the area of the former McKenzie Professional Centre from general commercial to neighbourhood mixed-use and construct a six-storey rental apartment building with commercial space at ground level and underground parking.
The building itself would contain 372 apartments, 12 townhouses, one level of underground parking and almost 2,000 square metres of commercial space. It would include a mixture of unit types and sizes – from micro suites to three-bedroom units. Public plaza space with seating and an art feature is also proposed at the intersection of McKenzie Avenue and Shelbourne Street.
