Apartment on Spadina with new owner hoping to clean up and rejuvenate the building, I used to live right near this building and I am glad work is on the table. Sounds like they are having some difficulty with at least one tenant.

The redevelopment of 270 Spadina Rd E has been branded Woodside Terraces.

And it looks like they are adding a completely new wing to the building.

Something needs to be done about that ghastly corner though...even a green space until someone develops it...

I think this should be a nice mid-market building when it's done. I don't see any signs of construction for the new wing yet, so I suspect that will be a second phase.

This is another Vive Development (Stephen Litt) project, they have been quite active in rebuilding mid-rise buildings in the area.

Ironic that it is named Woodside Terraces, but they will have to cut down a large majority of the mature trees on the site, and it doesn't seem to have any terraces.

Does the subdividing of the original building in to more, smaller units change the existing parking requirements?

I wonder how they will meet the additional parking requirements of the new addition? New parking garage in behind? There is already a ~45 space surface lot off of Lansdowne Ave W and I think a small underground lot off of Spadina?

Well, 'Woodside' is a name for the neighbourhood, so they get away with that one.

The building permit summary doesn't specify any additional parking. There is probably some additional space on the property for surface parking, too. Or they might be able to rent the former gas station property (demolished in 2002!) for additional parking.

I am certain the new units will be much nicer than the old ones, but almost half the size (103 units rather than 61), so hopefully the new ones will still be relatively affordable.
