Bringing 124 new homes to Toronto's Dufferin Street and Briar Hill Avenue, Madison Homes' Briar Hill City Towns is now almost sold out, with only 10 units remaining for the Kirkor Architects-designed development. With only a few unit types now remaining, we take a look at the homes still available as the project gets set to move forward to meet a targeted Winter 2018 completion.

Located on the border of the Fairbank and Glen Park neighbourhoods, the development will add modest density to the area in the form of six four-storey buildings. Designed around an existing park, the development takes advantage of the area's green space, and the stacked townhouse configuration also 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.

The remaining units are all upper-level terrace suites, each featuring a two bedroom, two bathroom configuration. The C1, C1-Alt, D1, and D1 ET, floorplans also feature split-level layouts topped by a rooftop terrace. Each of the units is also over 1,000 ft² in size.

Seen above, the C1 layout's two levels separate the communal living/dining and kitchen area from the more private upper level. With bedrooms separated from the communal area, a sense of privacy is created for residents. Meanwhile, the rooftop terrace is a showpiece feature of the upper-level units, with the area's low-rise surroundings allowing for an open vista from many of the generously sized spaces (below).

The area is also 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 a few blocks 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 continue developing a more urban character over the coming years.
