33 and 37 Maitland Street are for sale as a potential development site. Colliers International has compiled an "investment summary" document, which details the rationale for a 38-storey tower.
33 Maitland is a 3-storey apartment building with 37 units. 37 Maitland is a 2-storey office building that is listed as a heritage property, built in 1853. They are located between the Village Green rental complex and the Cosmopolitan condominiums.
According to the document, given the height of other buildings in the area, an argument can be made for a 38-storey tower. "The proposed height is based on a hypothetical angular plane between the proposed 15-storey mixed-use building located at 506 Church Street and the recently built 52-storey condominium building at 501 Yonge Street." (506 Church Street has since been approved at 14 storeys).
There will be no opportunity for community consultation until a developer purchases the properties and submits a development proposal.
