With Madison HomesBriar Hill City Towns now over 80% sold out, we recently got the opportunity to tour the presentation centre for the Dufferin and Briar Hill stacked townhome development. In our last story on the project, we covered the layout and features of the presentation centre at 2 Wingold Avenue, and today we return for a look at the project's scale model, created by Myles Burke Architectural Models.

Briar Hill City Towns' exterior elevations will sport textured earth tone finishes with warm accents, while alternating gardens and porch steps mimic the rhythm of Georgian townhome frontages of English cities.

The development will consist of six blocks of stacked townhomes on the east side of Dufferin Street, at Briar Hill. Due to the sloping grade on the large site, the blocks will each rise four and a half storeys, with the lowest level partially sunken on north-facing elevations. The top level of each blocks will step back to create private rooftop terraces.

Residents of lower level homes will also have a slice of the outdoors to call their own: ground level entrances will feature lush, landscaped gardens with compact patios which will serve as a welcoming street presence.

The model utilizes an innovative cutaway design that peels away the exterior finishing, providing viewers with a quickly understood introduction to the interior layouts.
