With land values climbing ever higher across the GTA, and with Toronto simply getting cooler all the time, low and mid-rise infill development proposals continue to pop up on currently under-utilized sites. They are also perfect for filling voids in established communities where high-rise development wouldn't be appropriate. Planned for a vacant lot immediately south of Sorauren Park and the heritage Canada Linseed Oil Factory west of Downtown Toronto, Zinc Developments35 Wabash will be adding 62 one, two, and three-bedroom residential suites to the Roncesvalles Village neighbourhood, ranging in size from 700 to 1,500 square-feet, and starting in the $600,000s.

The four-storey building by architects RAW Design will sport a tumbled-brick exterior with wood-accented recessed balconies, creating a dialogue between the modern townhomes, heritage warehouses, and converted lofts found in the vicinity of the site. The inclusion of street level plantings and trees will help integrate the development into the neighbourhood around Wabash Avenue.

35 Wabash's ground floor suites will offer spacious backyards, while suites advertised as "Sky Towns" will feature private rooftop terraces. In addition to ample outdoor space for entertaining and al fresco dining, residents of the development will enjoy access to the many shops, restaurants, and neighbourhood amenities of Roncesvalles Village, including the Sorauren Farmers Market and Sorauren Park, immediately north of the development site.
