Since the Canada Line was completed in 2009, redevelopment projects have been sprouting east, south, and west of King Edward Station, particularly over the last few years.

If approved, this particular project would replace four single-family residential structures, including two homes built in 1941, one home built in 2005, and one home built in 2010.
