219 Dundas East Condos Responding to the irregular shape of the site, the body of the tower is rounded to meet the curving street. The 1,499 m² (0.37 acre) site is surrounded by very different urban contexts. To the west, the Jarvis corridor is in the midst of a high-rise boom, with both the 45-storey Dundas Square Gardens and the 50-storey Grid Condos now approved for the intersection of Jarvis and Dundas, where the 42-storey Pace Condos is already nearing completion.

For the time being, however, the site’s immediate surroundings have retained a low-rise context. From a planning perspective, the site forms part of the Garden District’s Dundas Corridor Character Area, which identifies the stretch of Dundas between George and Sherbourne Streets as a priority retail strip. High-rise development can potentially be permitted in this area, though requirements stipulate the inclusion of ample ground-level retail.

The proposal includes a landscaping plan by NAK Design Group. With the proposal still in its very early stages, the development is subject to significant change, and the current design of the tower may not reflect a finalized project—it’s possible that this design is used as a massing model for zoning purposes.
