A developer is asking the city for permission to demolish three residential buildings close to Parkdale and Burnside avenues to make way for a 30-storey condo development.

A detached home at 71 Burnside Ave. and two six-unit apartment buildings, located at 111 and 115 Parkdale Ave., would be torn down to make way for the new development if the request is approved.

According to a “community heads up” released by the city’s planning department on Thursday, the demolition control must be approved before a building permit can be issued. The document did not say which developer is behind the project.

The condo tower would have 180 units. The height of that building would be within what’s allowed by the site’s existing zoning.
