The corner of Spadina Avenue and Queen Street is about to undergo a major change if the proposed condominium development goes ahead. The developer's been working with the city for the past year to get approval on the proposed development and has since re-launched with a new design with fewer storeys. The site at 170 Spadina Ave. is still under pre-construction and will be built by Wallman Architects with interiors designed by 3rd Uncle Design, although the principals have since parted ways. The building will have 160 units ranging in size from 455 to 910 square feet, starting from $249,000. The new development will have 65 parking spots and amenities including a gym and catering kitchen.
The property just north of the 24-hour McDonald's will fill the void left by the former Blockbuster Video (may it RIP) and will perhaps start to draw some of the Queen Street retail crowd north on Spadina Avenue.
