About Flemingdon Park
& 48 Grenoble

Built in 1962, 48 Grenoble has been a part of the Flemingdon Park community for 60 years. This area has started to see change once again as new transit projects come to life, supporting new community infrastructure and housing opportunities. 48 Grenoble is an exciting opportunity to set the bar for the evolution of Flemingdon Park, an example of good city building that enhances quality of life for existing and future residents.

The Proposal Proposed Vision

The vision for 48 Grenoble includes 43- and 41-storey towers, connected by a 6-storey podium. A new public park is proposed to the west of the building, along with a new privately-owned public space (POPS) at the intersection of Grenoble Drive and Deauville Lane. Parking will be entirely underground, and the pedestrian realm will be improved with new trees and amenities. The project team is excited about this opportunity to bring new housing to an area well supported by existing and future transit and services.

  • 944 new residential units
  • 540m2 privately-owned public space
  • 194 vehicle parking spaces
  • 1227 bicycle parking spaces

FAQs Your Questions

We invite you to discover the vision, get all of the information you need, ask questions and provide feedback, all in one place.

Who is Tenblock?

Tenblock is the developer and manager of the development process. Any questions related to the redevelopment of the property should be directed through this website.

What exists on site today?

There is a 9-storey purpose-built rental building with 109 units on site, built in the 1960s. The property also includes underground/surface parking and landscaped areas along the south, west, and east sides of the property.

What does this mean for tenants that currently live at 48 Grenoble?

As of right now, there are no changes for the tenants. We still do not have all of the necessary approvals to begin construction. Tenants will remain in their current units, where no changes will occur other than regular and ongoing maintenance work. Tenblock is committed to keeping tenants informed throughout the process and encourages them to reach out should they have any questions or feedback.

What is Tenblock proposing to build here?

The proposed development includes two towers which will replace the existing building at 48 Grenoble. The East Tower is proposed to be 41 storeys and the West Tower would have a height of 43 storeys. A total of 1054 residential dwelling units are proposed, including 109 replacement rental units. The proposal also includes a 676 m2 public park along the western edge of the property.

How have you considered the sustainability of redeveloping the property with a new building?

High-density development near transit is one of the most impactful ways to reduce emissions as a society. Tenblock hired engineers to produce a carbon analysis for other buildings in its portfolio. The analysis demonstrated new buildings with better energy systems produce in the range of 2.6x less operational carbon than buildings from the era that 48 Grenoble was constructed. Even incorporating the impact of demolishing and rebuilding, the new buildings would be carbon neutral in roughly 10-15 years.

What stage in the process are you at?

The final report recommending approval of the Zoning By-law Amendment and Rental Housing Demolition applications was adopted by Toronto City Council on November 8, 2023. The final by-laws were enacted by City Council for the Zoning By-law Amendments in November 2023.

We look forward to continuing to work with the City and community as we progress through the Site Plan Approvals process.

If approved, when could construction start?

While the final report recommending approval of the Zoning By-law Amendment and Rental Housing Demolition applications was adopted by Toronto City Council on November 8, 2023, there are still several steps to complete before construction could begin, including advancing through the Site Plan Approval application and attaining permits, and there is no exact timing estimate at this time.
