Toronto's immense demand for housing near transit, cultural amenities, and neighbourhood conveniences is transforming many pockets along our low-rise avenues with modern mixed-use mid-rises. The west end is getting its share of residential infill and the new life that new residents will bring to the area. One project soon to make its mark in Bloor West Village is Tridel's One and Two Old Mill condominiums. We have recent photos of the site where One Old Mill has risen above street level, while the second phase is still deep below ground level.
Designed by Kirkor Architects, these two boutique buildings will rise 10 and 12 storeys above their prodominantly low-rise neighbours on local side-streets. With the close by greenspaces of the Humber River and High Park, pleasant shopping on Bloor, the easy access to the subway, and even one of Toronto's last neighbourhood cinemas nearby, Tridel is hoping to appeal to residents looking for a quieter urban existence than one finds downtown, but a full one nevertheless.
Amenities for the buildings will include a roof deck, swimming pool, fitness centre, party rooms, and a 24 Hr Concierge. Construction on One Old Mill is set to complete sometime in mid-2014, followed within a few months by Two Old Mill. The rendering below shows how we might expect the project look late next summer.
