Still in the early stages of design, 5200 Yonge is a proposed new development in North York. The site is framed by new development on both Ellerslie Ave to the North and Park Home Ave on the South. It is a key component in the continuing intensification of the North York corridor.
The current concept is built upon creating a vibrant and interesting public realm on all four sides of the development. The site will be include a large patterning of unit pavers, canopy trees, and integrated sculptural seating, to create a scaled pedestrian experience, while linking the landscape with the surrounding development. Stormwater is integrated through passive irrigation and permeable paving while vegetation is used to mitigate wind impacts.
To further compliment the public space, there is a shared 14 meter ROW on the North of the site, and a large court at the rear. Both of these will be shared spaces, enriching the landscape experience for both the residents and the surrounding community.
