    Interesting. I did some work on this four years ago that didn't end up going anywhere. It'll be interesting to see what's proposed.

    The facade at ground level seems uninspired with the plain walls and tiny windows.

    Yea, it looks incredibly basic in terms of general design, although I have doubts if this is red/brown brick. I'd assume this would be that popular dark purple brick which is seemingly popular on numerous new developments all over the city.

    I like the clean functional look. Good use of space. I'm confident the ground floor is a garage (too lazy to analyse or look for more renderings) so the small window makes sense.

    There's a public meeting coming up about these, as per Ana Bailao's current newsletter:

    1025 Dupont Planning Application Community Consultation Meeting - Casa Do Alentejo (1130 Dupont St) - April 6, 2017 from 6:30pm to 8:30pm

    The City of Toronto is hosting a community meeting to discuss the development application submission for 1025 Dupont St. The applicant is proposing to construct seven 4-storey townhouse units on the currently vacant lot. You can learn more about this application and view the architectural plans by clicking here.​

    Interesting. The AIC still only lists the October 2016 submission but the site plan / architectural plans have indeed changed since then.

    This is now launching as 'Piano Towns.' in 2018. I think the updated rendering is really nice. I think the overall project will bode well for Grid Developments as the site sold for around 1.5M . I really like these types of micro sites.

    Piano Towns.
