Tricar’s commitment to Downtown London continues as they announce their newest premiere development at 40 York St. AND ask Londoners for their help in NAMING THE PROJECT.
There’s a new plan in the works to calm concerns from downtown residents opposed to Tricar’s proposed 24-storey residential tower on York Street.
Politicians praised the mega-builder for listening to citizens, who were concerned about issues around noise and loss of green space near Ivey Park.
More than a dozen future neighbours at 19 King St. came to a marathon planning committee meeting last week, waiting until past midnight to voice their objections to one of the tower’s designs.

Picture the typical condo buyer and an image might form of a young, childless, career-focused single man or woman who'd rather sip wine at a downtown bar than worry about the R-value of their attic insulation.
Two major developments — one an office project, the other residential — are on track to refashion downtown London’s York Street in the next year.
The city’s urban-design review panel has reviewed plans to build a new headquarters for telecom Start Communications, at 639 York St., and a 24-storey Tricar residential tower at 40 York St.
A proposed condominium complex that would exceed the city’s height limitations has had its first hearing in front of councillors.
The proposed structure at 71 Wyndham St. S., put forward by the Tricar Group, would stand 14 storeys tall, containing 140 units. However, the downtown secondary plan, originally approved in 2012, designates that property as having a limit of 10 storeys.

The Tricar Group is already gearing up to build a new luxury condo building in Byron, in west-end London, while the company’s downtown condo project is still under construction.
Tricar has submitted a plan to the city’s urban design peer review committee for a seven-storey, 130-unit condo building on Commissioners Road.
