Following a successful run of sales for Diam DevelopmentsOn the Danforth Condos, the now-sold-out 10-storey Onespace Unlimited-designed condominium development has officially started construction on Danforth Avenue between Woodbine and Main Street subway stations. Earlier this week, Diam's President and CEO Moninder Khudal was joined by Beaches-East York MPP Arthur Potts and Ward 32 Councillor Mary-Margaret McMahon to conduct a ground breaking ceremony that marked the official start of construction.

Khudal remarked “The start of construction is always a wonderful time, as plans and drawings begin to take shape in the real world. It’s as exciting for us as for those who have purchased suites at On The Danforth, we look forward to the coming months, as our development takes shape as part of the new streetscape of this emerging neighbourhood.”  

On the Danforth will introduce 139 new condominium units to the neighbourhood, with suites ranging in size from 436 ft² up to 1032 ft². Residents will have access to a collection of EsQape Design-appointed amenity spaces, including a hotel-inspired lobby, a tenth floor party room and fitness studio, and outdoor elements like a rooftop terrace overlooking the surrounding East Danforth area.

In addition to adding new homes to the area, the project is set to improve the public realm in this stretch of The Danforth. Adding to the area's existing Walk Score of 96, the inclusion of street-fronting retail space—replacing a previous single-storey auto service centre—will help to foster an enhanced pedestrian experience on this block.
