Builder proposes six-storey apartment complex near Bayview station

Bayswater Avenue development

A developer is proposing to build a 40-unit apartment complex a few hundred metres south of the Bayview LRT station.

In a development application recently filed with the city, Centennial Developments Corp. says the six-storey project at 54, 56 and 60 Bayswater Ave., near the intersection of Somerset Street West, would include 11 underground parking spaces and seven covered spots at ground level. 

“The proposed development is in close proximity to a mix of uses and high-quality transit services, resulting in a more sustainable, liveable and resilient community,” planning documents prepared by Novatech Group say. 

Centennial is seeking zoning amendments to allow the building to exceed the current four-storey height limit for the property and accommodate reduced setbacks.

The neighbourhood is seeing a growing wave of transit-oriented development proposals that also include a three-tower project at 900 Albert St. led by Trinity Development Group and CLV Group Developments’ plan to build a trio of mixed-use highrises on Gladstone Avenue near the future Corso Italia LRT station.
