    I was looking for anything on this church/condo conversion and finally found this online....

    I'm still undecided on the design, kinda ho-hum for me. But what is a bit disturbing is the insistance of the city to have the parking garage empty onto Peyton Lane ( a small laneway with residential units and many children, mine included) it would make more sense to me to have the traffic flow directly onto Jones Ave. especially considering the only way to get to Peyton lane is to navigate a series on side streets on which there is a school and 2 daycares.
    This is a small building but with 38 units, average of one car per unit means a rather large increase in traffic.

    On a more personal note, the new 3 storey addition on the back of the church is going to cast quite the shadow on my garden. but who am I to complain. I just wish that they would centre (east/west) the building more on the property in order to lower the impact of a looming condo over the existing homes on Curzon St.

    Anyone else hear anything about this building?

    Get outta here? Seriously?

    I bought my place after the public consultaions. I can't find anything that shows how the parking will exit onto the lane. Do you have any idea? That is really my greatest concern, if it turns out half as good as the church conversion on pape I'd be happy.

    Any info/renderings you have would be greatly appreciated.

    An interested project for this area. It could bring a lot of potential to Jones and spark even more positive transformations for Gerrard St. near this spot.

    There are now plans for the units. Reactions?

    I'm less than impressed at how they plan to slice up the old church. If I were buying in a historical building like this, I would want more of grandeur of the original to come through.

    For example:

    In H10, which should be the showcase unit in the historical, couldn't there be glass in the upstairs washroom to let through light from the windows at the front of the church? And rearrange the fixtures to put the tub in front of that. Why have a dark ensuite when you could have all this natural light?

    In H7 (3 units), the peak of the roof is above the two washrooms in the unit, which are directly opposite one another. I guess they wanted to jam those washrooms in and this was the best place, but what becomes of the pitched ceiling, which is one of the prettier features in the historical pictures?

    I guess a lot depends on the execution, and I will be interested to see how that comes out. But it's saddening to see missed opportunities at the design stage.

    Looks good to me... I think enough of the original building shines through - pretty hard to escape the churchy connotations. Sure is a welcome development on Jones though.

    It would be nice to see this church redone into homes. Jones could really use some nice homes on it to bring it up a bit.

    Hello All

    My name is Sergio Bogani from DeCargani Developments and we are the co-developer at the St. Clements. As Luke said we are full steam ahead and looking to have construction start early next year. The project will be split into two developments with Luke and Lifestyle Custom Homes doing the new Townhomes and Stacked Townhomes on the south portion of the property and Decarganie doing the 14 Church Loft units in the actual Church itself. If you have any questions about the Church Loft Development please contact us at sales@stleslieville.com
