The intensification of the Highway 427 corridor in Etobicoke is picking up steam with Edilcan's multi-tower proposal at 2 Gibbs Road, which made its first pass through Toronto's Design Review Panel (DRP) on Tuesday. The multi-phase development proposal includes two 10-storey rental midrises and three condo towers of 31, 37, and 46 storeys designed by Page + Steele / IBI Group Architects. The Panel praised many aspects of the project, but expressed several concerns about the design that may result in changes as the planning process continues. It is important to note that since this is a rezoning application, only the massing, site plan, and height were reviewed, as the architecture of the buildings is still a work in progress.

Sitting on a 6.6-acre site near the intersection of Highway 427 and Bloor Street West, 2 Gibbs Road incorporates a variety of programatic elements within the sprawling complex. The site will be bissected by a new north-south road that connects with the adjacent One Valhalla development to the north. The two midrise buildings will be located to the east of the central road, while the towers and podium will be located to the west.


Amenities

A variety of unit sizes will be provided, including 48 bachelor units, 1,000 one-bedroom units, 362 two-bedroom units and 90 three-bedroom units. The project will include underground parking with 1,713 parking spaces and 1,125 bicycle storage spaces.

Indoor amenity space is proposed in one of the towers, which will be accessed by a shared pedestrian bridge on the third storey.

The grounds will include plenty of greenspace, including a landscaped rooftop garden on top of the podium, a central garden, and a landscaped walkway around the entire development that connects to an off-leash dog park, the neighbouring development, and some new trees and landscaping at the south edge of Gibbs Road. The project will be a new neighbourhood unto itself, bringing a sense of community to the former commercial strip.

The three towers sit atop a common five-storey podium that wraps around the western edge of the site, forming an inner courtyard that contains the POPS. Given that the site has a very high water table, it was necessary to bring the majority of the parking above ground. To mitigate this inconvenience, the five levels of above-ground parking are located in the podium around the outer edge of the site to create a buffer from the busy highway to the west. On the inner faces of the podium along the courtyard and north-south street, there will instead be residences, retail, and office spaces to create a friendlier environment for the POPS.

Location & Neighbourhood

At 2 Gibbs Road, you’re close to freeways and a short drive from the Kipling subway station and GO transit connection, so commuting is a breeze, whatever your style.

The Bloor West Village is nearby, as is the newly-expanded Sherway Gardens mall, for all your shopping needs.
