Briar Hill City Towns, a new stacked townhouse development by Madison Homes, is bringing a new residential community to Dufferin Street in northern Fairbank. Located slightly north of Eglinton, and within walking distance of Glencairn Subway Station, the project will bring the area 124 new homes in six boutique-sized four-storey buildings. With the sales centre now officially open, we offer you a glimpse of the development's outdoor amenities.

Designed around an existing park, the Kirkor Architects-designed development takes advantage of the area's green space, while the stacked townhouse configuration provides individual units with private, outdoor spaces. For the upper level units, rooftop terraces look out over the city beyond, while lower level homes feature private patios insulated by walls of greenery.

Units will range in size from 709 to 1,494 square feet. The project's two-storey homes will feature living and dining areas on the lower floor and bedrooms above, fostering a sense of increased privacy through a separation of shared and public space. The generously sized units also make the development a potentially attractive option for families, particularly given the relative shortage of two and three-bedroom units in the Toronto condo market.

The area itself is surrounded by ample green space, with several parks in the immediate vicinity. In the coming years, transit options are also set to improve, with the Crosstown LRT now under construction to the south. With property values and density along the Eglinton corridor expected to rise following the LRT's construction, the neighbourhood is expected to develop further over the next several years.

While the development is notable for the ample outdoor space—and parklandsurrounding the homes, the large upper level terraces are perhaps the project's most eye-catching element (above). Renderings show unobstructed views stretching to the skyline, with the relatively low-rise surrounding area allowing for an open vista (below).
