Gairloch Investments' 383 Sorauren Avenue has been generating quite a bit of interest since it was announced as Parkdale and its surrounding area is becoming one of Toronto's hottest neighbourhoods for redevelopment of old industrial land. One need only look next door to the Robert Watson Lofts, or to nearby Liberty Village, to see the development potential that lies in the city's manufacturing past.

383 Sorauren will be an 11-storey, 149-unit condo building designed by architectsAlliance. It pays homage to the area's industrial past with an attractive brick and grid-type design with an exposed rooftop. 

A community presentation on the project was recently held by Gord Perks, city councillor for Ward 14 (Parkdale- High Park). The meeting's presentation showed some interesting renderings of how the building will look and how it will interact with the existing structures that surround it.

The site is currently a parking lot and storage facility located between a Downtown Lumber outlet and the Robert Watson Lofts. It backs onto the railway corridor and is just a few steps from Dundas Street West.
