Gairloch continuing to be bullish on the Junction area.




3239 – 3251 Dundas St West – Pre-application meeting


Gairloch Developments, the proponents for the development application at 3194-3206 Dundas Street West, will be hosting a pre-application meeting for a collection of properties to the south, at 3239-3251 Dundas Street West. At this time they have not submitted an application with the City, and we have not seen any proposal, however we have been told it will be similar in scope to the development proposal across the street.

The Virtual Community Consultation meeting will take place on Wednesday, June 28, at 7:00 pm. To register for the meeting, please click here.

Please note that this is a meeting being hosted by the developer. Once an application is submitted to the City a city consultation will take place.

If you are unable to attend the meeting and are interested in providing comment and/or receiving more detailed information on this application as it becomes available please contact Councillor Perks’ Office at councillor_perks@toronto.ca .

Looks like it's for a group of houses midblock on the south side along Dundas West. The assembly brings them close but just east of Gilmour Ave. It's also just west of Gairloch's other upcoming project, on the north side of the street at 3200 Dundas W:

Good spot for redevelopment in the area. I'm wary of avenues-style buildings that decimate existing storefronts and fine-grain streetscape, but houses like this on one of our main streets is absolutely not something we need and this should upgrade the urbanism of this stretch.

Couldn't agree more. I'm very (and pleasantly) surprised by this - developers usually go after low hanging fruit (parking lots, plazas, non-descript commercial buildings) rather than blocks of detached houses. I would have bet money that Gairloch or another developer would have snapped up the car wash or Tim Horton's site just to the east of this instead, so this is great. These houses (and the ones on the north side) created an annoying dead stretch in the middle of the Junction. I very much look forward to seeing the retail strip's lovely vibrancy spread further west to fill in gaps like this one.

Now if only we could get a similar makeover of almost everything on Dundas west of Runnymede...

Imagine the flatiron opportunities if the Tim Horton's site ever gets redeveloped. ;)
