548 Toronto

A proposed development by Aryze

At the corner of Parry and Toronto in James Bay

548 Toronto is a 68 home infill development, envisioned to bolster evolution of the James Bay neighbourhood and provide much needed, family-friendly housing options. Ranging from 1 bedroom to 2 bedroom and den homes, this infill development enhances the pedestrian experience and provides sustainable scale when considering the context of the neighbourhood.

Project Pillars

Our proposal for 415 Parry Street and 544-558 Toronto Street has been developed with the consideration of three key project pillars—the defining elements that our proposal has responded to throughout the design.

Right Homes in the Right Places

Imagine a city without enough housing choice to help people make the leap from one life stage to the next. That’s exactly what’s happening as cities grow more expensive and available housing stock continues to decline. The housing continuum explains it best, which highlights the range of housing types that should be available in a community—an assortment of housing types, each critically important for different people at different times in their lives. A healthy city needs to have many options available at all points on the spectrum to ensure every citizen’s needs are being met.

Transit-Oriented Infill Development

With the growing body of research indicating that densification holds the key for cities fight against climate change, reducing our dependence on cars is the most significant component of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The central location of 415 Parry Street and 544-558 Toronto Street encourages a car-lite lifestyle, offering alternative transportation modes like walking, cycling and transit as primary options for future residents.

What We Heard

As a result of the valuable feedback from James Bay residents, we have developed evidence-based planning and design solutions that will respond to the planning objectives and embrace the future potential and overall housing needs of our City.

Traffic & Access

Our proposal is located at the intersection of numerous transportation modes, with excellent access to transit and cycling infrastructure. In support of the proposed rezoning and associated development vision, Bunt & Associates completed a Transportation Impact Assessment (TIA). This investigation included an analysis of the expected impact that proposal will have on local area traffic, along with its parking demand, mobility context, proposed site access and circulation, and potential Transportation Demand Management (TDM) strategies for lowering traffic and parking demands. The outcomes of this study are outlined in more detail in the transportation section of this Application Brief, but the conclusions reinforce the very walkable and pedestrian forward nature of the site.
