A Toronto developer is asking the city for permission to build a nine-storey condominium building on the site of an old service station on Richmond Road in Westboro.

Main and Main Developments has filed a rezoning request for the property at 236 Richmond Rd., immediately west of the LCBO in the Real Canadian Superstore retail plaza. The property is currently zoned for five storeys.

Plans currently call for 70 residential units, three levels of underground parking and 9,500 square feet of ground-level retail space.

The developer purchased the property, formerly home to Nick’s Service Centre, for $2,575,000 or $177 a square foot in January, according to records published by local real estate appraisal firm Juteau Johnson Comba Inc.
