We first learned of plans to redevelop a stretch of Danforth Avenue east of Woodbine back in late-2015 via a rezoning application filed with the City of Toronto's Planning Department. In the months since, we have learned more details about the planned development—now known as Canvas Condominium—and more information is emerging as the 8-storey project by Marlin Spring Developments is now being marketed.

Set to rise at 2301-2315 Danforth Avenue, the project would put residents in an area with an impressive 97 walk score, and in close proximity to the TTC's Line 2, Danforth GO station, and neighbourhoods like The Beaches, Upper Beaches, Greektown, and Leslieville.

Designed by Graziani + Corazza Architects, the project will meet Danforth Avenue with a seven-storey streetwall of brick and glass, articulated by inset balconies, before stepping back for the final residential level and mechanical level above. To the south, a series of terraces will transition the massing down to meet the adjacent low-rise neighbourhood setting. 

Canvas is offering one-bedroom, one + den, two-bedroom and two-bedroom + den suites sized as large 961 square feet, and starting in price from the mid-$200s. Units at Canvas will feature interiors appointed by U31, with finishes which include quartz countertops in kitchens and baths, stainless steel kitchen appliances, and wide-plank designer laminate floors.  

Residents of these units will enjoy access to a number of amenity spaces, including a fitness centre and yoga studio, a meeting room, a pet spa, and a guest suite. A rooftop terrace will offer residents an outdoor space featuring a fireplace lounge, a barbecue dining alcove and sundeck, a bocce court, and extensive views across this predominantly low-rise area of the city.

We will return with more information as new details of the project emerge. In the meantime, you can review facts and renderings in the project's dataBase file, linked below.
