The first phase of IQ Condos
by the Remington Group
is now under construction at Zorra Street east of Kipling, and phase two has just been approved by council, bringing hundreds of new residents who will start arriving in 2014.
These newbies will join residents of several smaller, loft-style condos that have also been approved for the area, along with several new restaurants, giving the Queensway, located in Peter Milczyn
’s Ward 5, the density needed for a fully functional and enthusiastic BIA, which will be going before the business community in April for a formal vote. This follows the formation of the neighbourhood's first residents association
about a year ago.
