129 Keefer Street


James Schouw has already proposed an infill development on Keefer Street, on a 25 foot wide lot. Here’s another proposal on the next door but one lot, this one 50 feet wide, and designed in this case by Stantec Architecture.

The project proposes 33 condos over retail in an 88 feet high building with 10 storeys built to the existing zoning. (An adjacent site has a proposed rezoning to add additional height, but also offering rental seniors housing as part of the scheme – that would be built to the west – the left – of this proposal).

The illustration shows the project on the left, with the Heritage Keefer bar and residential building sandwiched between the new building and the earlier narrower proposal (apparently now redesigned a little).

Unusually, the new building proposes to have retail frontages that wrap around to the laneway frontage via a narrow pedestrian alley that would connect Keefer to the laneway. The design proposes to use cast metal columns on the facade
