Work continues on Neudorfer Corporation's multi-phase redevelopment scheme transforming Davenport Village, as Fuse & Fuse2 Condos take shape at the intersection of Dupont Street and Lansdowne Avenue. Once primarily consisting of industrial lands, the area delimitated by Lansdowne Avenue to the east, Davenport Road to the north, Lappin Avenue to the south, and the GO Barrie Line to the west is gradually morphing into a mixed-use neighbourhood.
The most visible element of this unfolding transformation certainly are the two Barrett Architect and Burka Architects-designed towers rising above the partially preserved and repurposed General Electric Canada brick warehouse. After the development's first phase topped out last December at a final height of 27 storeys, the 23-level phase two is currently rapidly rising on the west portion of the site and now stands 13 storeys above ground, solidly reinforcing the local street wall.
With the first residents of the 576 residential units comprised in the project expected to move in throughout the Fall of 2016, work is accelerating in and around phase 1. Indeed, while the windows are being mounted on all four facades of the tallest tower, bricks are being applied on the reconstructed portion of the heritage building fronting Dupont. Its facade is now entirely exposed, revealing the ongoing interior work to the passerby. Similarly, the first bricks panels have made their appearance at the base of phase 2, marking another important milestone for that building.
We will continue to follow the development here, but in the meantime, you can find additional information and renderings in our dataBase file for Fuse and Fuse2, linked below.
