[SOLD] 2 Bicknell Avenue

Site Introduction

Situated north of Rogers Road, between Bicknell Avenue to the east and Forbes Avenue to the west, the site consists of a former TTC bus loop that now sits vacant. The neighbourhood is home to many industrial and commercial businesses, but is starting to see a wave of residential uses take hold.

Build Toronto’s vision is to intensify the underutilized parcel of land, with a proposal that includes 63 residential units in stacked townhouse and low-rise apartment forms. Build Toronto will also be introducing an affordable housing program that will provide up to 32 affordable home ownership units.

A development application has been submitted to the City of Toronto and is currently under review.
