The owners of the Riverside Mall have finally unveiled the Site Plan for their proposed development at 729 Ridgewood Ave.
The current proposal – the fourth design – is a reflection of several rounds of community input and Brigil’s responsiveness to meeting the local vision for the neighbourhood. Building heights have been significantly reduced throughout the site. The concept now features four buildings with their own unique architecture, design features and underground parking, dedicated public space, a semi-public courtyard connected to amenity spaces and a shared garden. The concept calls for a six-storey building at the southwest corner of the property along Ridgewood, two four-storey buildings on the east side, and a 15-storey building at the northwest corner with an attached six-storey podium. The density has been scaled down by almost 300 units. The proposal now features 383 units and up to 10,000 square feet of potential commercial retail and amenity space.
Brigil is expecting to file its rezoning application and development proposal with the City by mid-June. Councillor Riley Brockington hosted a public information session on Monday, May 31 at 7 p.m. A recording of the meeting will be shared here when it is ready.
