Since launching last year, Madison Homes' Briar Hill City Towns, a Kirkor Architects-designed stacked townhome development in Toronto's Fairbank neighbourhood, has proven to be very appealing to homebuyers. Of the 124 units originally offered for the development's six four-storey buildings, just two remain, and with the project now all but sold out, the first construction-related activity has been spotted just south of the presentation centre where the development will rise.

The 124 units in the development will range in size between 709 square feet and 1,494 square feet, in two and three-bedroom configurations. We got a taste of the project's interiors last year during a visit to the presentation centre, which features a suite vignette of the project's A1 floorplan appointed by Paula Gauci of Turner Fleischer Architects. In addition to the suite vignette, a virtual tour of a unit in the development was produced, giving prospective buyers two different ways to preview spaces within the unbuilt development.

The development's formula of generously-sized units in an established family-friendly neighbourhood with competitive real estate prices has proven successful, and illustrates further redevelopment potential for neighbouring blocks along Dufferin Street. The completion of the Crosstown LRT in 2021 will help to spur similar redevelopments in the area, while also quickly connecting residents of Briar Hill City Towns with the TTC's rapid transit network.
