A late-2014 shoring permit application was the first sign that activity is soon to begin at the site of Cityzen Development GroupDiamond Corp and Fernbrook HomesGarrison Point. The multi-phase development will add five new condominium towers to a tract of land bound by GO Transit Georgetown South rail corridor to the north, Lakeshore rail corridor to the south, and Strachan Avenue to the west. Toronto's Planning Department refers to it as the Ordnance Triangle.

Consisting of four towers by Hariri Pontarini Architects, and a fifth by Chicago-based bKL Architecture, Garrison Point's towers will range in height between 24 and 39 storeys, and will offer a total of over 1,700 residential units as well as non-residential uses like retail and amenity spaces. Plenty of the latter will be included in the development's first phase, including offerings like a fitness centre, a party room, theatre room, and even a kid's lounge area, all designed and appointed by interior designers Munge Leung.

The kid's room in particular will surely be appreciated by parents, providing a well-equipped play area for children living within the development.

Amenity spaces in a condominium development serve as more than just recreational spaces, also providing a way for residents of the community to connect with one another in a common setting. Spaces like Garrison Point's "Pit Lounge", will do just that in a stylish contemporary setting.

Another standout interior space future residents can look forward to, is this grand wooden staircase carving its way through an atrium.

In addition to the building amenities being offered, Garrison Point will also include a new 3.9 acre public park designed by landscape architects Claude Cormier + Assoc, which could feature a proposed Olympic size swimming pool if ultimately approved by the City. This park will be linked over the surrounding rail lines by new pedestrian bridges, connecting with the West Toronto Railpath as well as the path eastwards through Concord CityPlace's Linear Park and beyond.
