Near the foot of Avenue Road north of Toronto's Yorkville neighbourhood, Brandy Lane Homes' 9-storey The Davies has now launched, with a sales centre open on site ahead of construction. Designed by SMV Architects, the boutique luxury condo will border the namesake Robertson Davies Park to its south, giving many of its 41 suites a direct view of the urban green space.

Characterized by a smoothly curving exterior, the building will be clad in a combination of stonework and wood tones, creating a warm and textured aesthetic. The building's massing helps maximize views to the south, which will open up to a panoramic view of the skyline from the upper levels. Below, Robertson Davies Park will be enhanced as part of the project, with new plantings, landscaping, and outdoor furniture, creating a more welcoming space for the community.

Inside, the 41 suites boast generous configurations. Ranging in size from 940 ft² to over 2,500 ft², the condominium suites will feature an array of two-bedroom layouts, with the six penthouse suites featuring either a "family lounge" or "great room" as an additional living space.

Appointed by Lukas Design Interiors, the living spaces—accented with warm wood tones—will all feature full-size Bosch appliances, emerging onto the large terraces that wrap around the building. Each terrace will feature a gas barbecue connection, with ample seating space allowing for comfortable outdoor entertaining. Residents will also have access to a collection of amenities, including a gym, conference room, 24-hour concierge, and the Avenue Room, which will host guests for larger gatherings.

The project's landscaping will be overseen by NAK Design Group, with The Davies' large rooftop terrace (and outdoor reading room) showcasing a carefully appointed landscaping program. Overlooking Toronto's growing skyline, the rooftop terrace will also include a fully stocked bar, a private sun-bathing area, and a social lounge space.

The 41-unit project will feature 82 parking spots, which will come equipped with 220V power outlets for electric and hybrid vehicles. Relatively convenient transit connections—with Summerhill station a 9-minute walk away—and a wealth of local amenities, including some of Toronto's highest-rated private and public schools, make the area a highly attractive part of the city.

We will keep you updated as the project continues to develop, with a visit to the site next month.
