500 Duplex Avenue, known as the Parkview Residences, occupies an entire block on the west side of Duplex Avenue extending south from Roselawn Avenue to Montgomery Avenue and includes significant frontage on both Roselawn and Montgomery. The site is 2.5 acres in size and is currently occupied by a single 34-storey apartment tower. LPRO was involved with the approval of the original development in 1971, negotiating a settlement which resulted in the by-law that governs what can exist on the site. In 2020 the property was listed for sale as an opportunity for redevelopment or additional density.
On July 7, 2021, the City received a zoning by-law amendment application for 500 Duplex. The application proposes removing the existing townhouses, surface parking area, tennis court and swimming pool to accommodate two additional buildings on the site, which would have heights of 11 and 15 storeys. The heights exclude a mezzanine level on each building, making the true heights 12 and 16 floors. The proposal also includes a small public park on Montgomery Avenue.

We will be working closely with the Eglinton Park Residents’ Association (EPRA), which represents the south side of Roselawn where the property is located.
