UrbanToronto was on hand yesterday to mark the opening of 109OZ,  the latest project by Reserve Properties. Steps away from Motif, and nestled halfway between Queen and Dundas on this entertaining and rapidly changing strip, 109OZ will offer 85 new suites in a 6-storey building designed by RAW Design, with interiors by II by IV Design Associates

The sales centre itself is covered in illustrations by UK artist Ian Keltie, and replicated by local Toronto mural artist William Lazos, complete with a large neon sign. The throwback design is reflective of the cultural and artistic flavour of the local neighbourhood.

Special guest DJ's FranDiscos and Bellosound set the mood as guests mingled through the night, culminating with a popup concert by Justin Peroff, the drummer of Broken Social Scene, plus Dave Hamelin and Liam O'Neil of The Stills.

UrbanToronto also had the opportunity to sit down with Shane Fenton to speak about specific aspects of the project. Stay tuned for that interview next week. In the meantime, we take a walk around the scale model for a quick overview, starting on the Ossington Facade. Because of the way this side of the building is articulated with different setbacks and projections, the building contains a little over 40 slightly different floorplans. A dozen lucky owners will also get the opportunity to personalize their terrace space with their own particular colour choice. More details on that in next week's interview.
