Construction on Chestnut Hill Homes and Quadrangle Architects' The Address at High Park has reached ground level. The Address is being built on the site of a former 1960s-era two-storey retail plaza at 1644 Bloor Street West, between Dundas West and Keele subway stations. The area is quite mixed-use already, having a blend of low- and mid-rise retail, office and residential spaces with a few auto-oriented land uses thrown in. It's the first major development on this stretch of Bloor and another example of large development projects popping up along major transit corridors.

At 12 storeys, The Address will be the tallest structure on this part of Bloor by at least six storeys. According to the developer's website, the building will "respect this unique neighbourhood, its diversity, its flavours, and its connection to the city's largest urban park." Indeed, one of the largest selling points is the project's location a mere half-block from High Park. The design is contemporary, and wouldn't look out of place in any number of Toronto's neighbourhoods undergoing significant redevelopment.

The Address at High Park will contain 108 units ranging from one bedrooms to two bed plus den (approximately 600 sq. ft. to nearly 1600 sq. ft.). There are at least two other nearby sites that could be subject to redevelopment of a similar nature in the near future, particularly those that are currently auto-oriented as the lots are usually large and hold potential for increases in residential density.
