Construction is progressing on the new dealership for Grand Touring Automobiles as it outgrows its current location at 740 Dupont Street. This is the latest addition to the emerging hub of luxury car dealerships straddling the Don Valley Parkway (DVP) south of Dundas.

Due to a decrease in grade westwards toward the DVP, the 4-storey cantilevered building, designed by Weis and Plaston Architect Limited, generally will have a two-storey appearance along Dundas Street East and Carroll Street, and a four-storey appearance along the DVP.

The DVP side will include three terraced showrooms featuring such marquee brands as Jaguar, Land Rover, Aston Martin, Bentley, and Rolls-Royce.
