Toronto's First Suburban Strip Plaza Proposed for Redevelopment

Sunnybrook Plaza, the first suburban strip plaza built in Toronto, has been proposed for demolition and redevelopment. This first collection of stores in the city with a parking lot out front was opened on the northeast corner of Bayview and Eglinton Avenues in 1952.

Subject to redevelopment speculation, Sunnybrook Plaza was bought by RioCan in 2008. Talk has been that they intend to build a mixed-use development. 
This proposed project, together with the other planned development by The Brown Group will dramatically change the landscape of the Bayview & Eglinton area. The Brown Group has proposed a 9-storey retail/residential project planned for Bayvew Hillsdale. I discussed the latter proposed project in this blog on Feb 12th (see below).

The corner will be the site of one of the Crosstown LRT's stations, the rapid transit line now under construction along Eglinton Avenue and planned to open in 2020. Developer RioCan has owned the land for the last several years and is now proposing to replace the plaza with a pair of residential towers with retail at grade. The design is by Turner Fleischer Architects.
