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.

  • 109 rental replacement units
  • 884 new residential units

  • 490m2 privately-owned public space
  • 522 vehicle parking spaces
  • 1094 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 are still very early in the process and do not have any of the required 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 993 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 recently 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. We will consider a similar analysis for this building.

What stage in the process are you at?

Applications were submitted for a Zoning By-law Amendment, Site Plan Control, and Rental Housing Demolition to the City of Toronto on March 21, 2022. There will be significant review and consultation by several parties before we can obtain the required approval from the City that would permit any construction to begin. We will update tenants and the community as we move through the various stages of the development process.

If approved, when could construction start?

The development application review process takes time. We are still very early in the process. On March 21, 2022, applications were submitted for a Zoning By-law Amendment, Site Plan Control, and Rental Housing Demolition. These submissions began the formal review process with the City of Toronto. This process typically takes anywhere from 18-24 months before we could receive an approval of the above noted applications. From that point, construction may begin approximately 6-12 months later, taking approximately 2-3 years. These timelines are a best estimate given our current stage in the process.
