21 Avenue Road
Project to be built on the site of the Old Four Seasons Hotel and consists of a north and south residential condominium tower that sit on a three storey podium with retail fronting on Avenue Road. In May 2010 the OMB ruled in favour of the developer, Menkes, to construct a 127 metre and a 133 metre condominium tower. Provincial Speaker of the House, the Hon. Steve Peters appealed to the Ontario Superior Court of Justice to block construction of these two condominium towers as they would intrude on the picturesque view of the Queens Park Legislature. In January 2011 the courts ruled to uphold the OMB’s decision giving the green light to Menkes to build the 44 and 48 storey condo towers.
Cumberland Terrace site
Developer Oxford Properties
