First Capital worked with the community regarding the renovation to the former Mac’s Convenience Store space and associated parking lot. Starbucks, Fancy Franks, and Freedom Mobile have moved in over the last year. Based on the feedback provided from the community, and as part of these renovations, landscaping was added to the parking lot to reduce the number of entry points for vehicles; making the corner safer for pedestrians.
We are proposing a new mixed-use community integrating new retail, commercial and residential uses. A resubmission of the application in July 2022 saw a number of changes to the original proposal.
- Two buildings: 10- and 13-storeys,
- 455 residential units
- 43 square feet/unit of amenity space
- ~50,000 square feet of retail space
- Two buildings: 10- and 14-storeys,
- 532 residential units
- 56 square feet/unit of amenity space
- ~35,000 square feet of retail space
- 10,953 square foot public park
- New public road
The redevelopment continues to focus on improving the public realm and places a sharp focus on increasing pedestrian safety.
First Capital will be working with the existing retail tenants on the future of this site. As a retail developer, we appreciate the value that our retailers provide for people in the neighbourhood. Part of our vision for the site is to continue to provide excellent shops and services that best serve the needs of the community. We are early in the planning process. If you have any suggestions for shops or services that you would like to see as part of the redevelopment, please let us know.
Pedestrian safety is top of mind for the design and circulation of the site. Our priority is to dramatically enhance the pedestrian experience, improving safety and walkability.
The shops and services that will be included will be selected to serve our neighbouring community members. We want to revitalize retail on Avenue Road by making this site a destination in the neighbourhood.
The original application was submitted on June 9, 2020, and most recently a resubmission of the application was made on July 19, 2022. City Staff will review the revised submission where we will continue to incorporate feedback from the community, City Staff and other key stakeholders, into updates to the proposal.
You can submit comments, questions, and feedback through the Contact page. We'd be happy to hear from you.
