Gairloch Developments Proposes Two New Mid-Rise Projects
Multi-disciplinary real estate organization Gairloch Developments has announced two new mid-rise projects coming to the city. The Canadian developer is proposing a luxury boutique condominium development in the Midtown Leaside and Davisville Village neighbourhoods, and an 8-storey, 100-unit building in Dundas West.
1414 Bayview is an 8-storey mid-rise condo project featuring 44 units of one, two and three bedroom suites and first floor retail fronting on Bayview Avenue. Located just north of Merton Street on the West side of Bayview Avenue and within walking distance to Bennington Heights and Moore Park, 1414 Bayview sits at the gateway to the bustling commercial strip of the popular high street.
Launching this fall, with expected completion by 2022, 1414 Bayview is designed by Peter Clewes of Architects Alliance, with interiors by local design firm Sixteen Degree Studio. The building features double-height retail frontage on Bayview Avenue, paired with a terraced stack of two-storey layers, defined on Bayview by strong
“At Gairloch, design and design-forward thinking are fundamental in the creation of our projects,” said Bill Gardiner, President of Gairloch Developments. “This connection extends to our partners who demonstrate the same affinity for design found in all our work. 1414 Bayview will blend seamlessly into the neighbourhood, while creating a distinguished silhouette along one of Toronto’s prime streets.”
Nestled at the gateway to one of Toronto’s most dynamic neighbourhoods, Junction Point is a compelling three-sided building that embodies key architectural characteristics of the area. Junction Point is a robust, sculpted and chiseled reimagining of the 20th century warehouses that flanks it on Dundas Street West.
Designed by Peter Clewes of Architects Alliance, with interiors by interdisciplinary design firm Commute Home, the building’s exterior features a decorative brick screen providing privacy to its residents while incorporating an inventive element of materiality to the building.
The Ground floor is pulled back from the street to create a generous public promenade that can accommodate families with strollers, pedestrians with dogs and older residents with shopping buggies or walkers.
Above the double-height ground floor, the 2-storey expression breaks down the massing of the building. The top two floors step back on all sides and are fully glazed along the east and west faces, limiting shadow impact on the street and reducing the apparent height of the building when viewed from Dundas Street West. The west elevation is terraced to create private outdoor space and to mitigate the presence of the project in the single-family homes to the west.
Junction Point will launch this fall, with expected completion by 2022.
