An exciting new mixed-use project at the corner of Bathurst and Richmond.
We've been thinking about the future of the site at 152-164 Bathurst Street & 623-627 Richmond Street and want to share our ideas with you.

We're proposing an 18-storey mixed-use building that incorporates the heritage of the 164 Bathurst building along with significant improvements to the streetscape.

Steps from shops and services along Queen West and King Streets, the new building would add more housing in this popular neighbourhood.

Integrating the building at 164 Bathurst Street into the new development creates a unique architectural experience at the Bathurst and Richmond intersection – blending old with new.
bus stop icon
Nearby access to streetcars and bike lanes makes this site an ideal location for residential development, enabling efficient travel across the city.


This site is currently made up of several smaller lots, including:
• 2-storey semi-detached residential buildings at 623 and 627 Richmond Street
• A 3-storey mixed-use building at 164 Bathurst Street
• A vacant lot at 160-162 Bathurst Street
• 2-storey mixed-use buildings at 152-158 Bathurst Street
164 Bathurst Street and 160-162 Bathurst Street has and will continue to be used by the applicant as a temporary outdoor patio to help activate the site in the interim.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is currently at the site?

The site is made up of a number of low-rise mixed-use buildings. Currently, there are no retail businesses in the existing commercial units along Bathurst Street.

What is the future vision for this site?

Our vision is to redevelop the site with an 18-storey mixed-use building, including retail and residential uses. It will include the preservation of the building at 164 Bathurst Street.

Will there be amenities in the new building?

There will be new indoor and outdoor amenity spaces, which will provide recreational space for new residents.

How will the proposal address parking?

With the close proximity to existing cycle track networks along Richmond and Adelaide Street, the applicant is proposing fewer car parking spaces in favour of 224 bicycle parking spaces.

What is the timing for this project?

The application for this proposal was approved at Community Council on April 12, 2023. We anticipate that it will still be approximately six months before any construction will begin on the site.
