Announced towards the end of last year, Mattamy and Biddington's J. Davis House will contribute to the revitalization of Yonge Street north of Davisville subway station while it densifies Toronto's desirable Midtown area. The Graziani + Corazza-designed 9-storey condominium will add a significant—but not overwhelming—191 homes to the area.
Last month, we got a first look at the interiors, and we now turn to the building's exterior, with renderings highlighting the terraced areas along the east frontage.
While the building will contribute to the more urban Midtown Yonge streetwall with a flatter facade, fairly expansive outdoor areas will overlook the quieter, treed residential neighbourhood to the east. Many of the larger suites—which range in size from 295 ft² to 1,650 ft²—will feature luxurious terraces, while more modest rows of balconies also line much of the building.
Meanwhile, a closer look at the exterior expression shows the red brick accents that characterize the building's aesthetic. These vertical elements represent an integration of the otherwise modern exterior materials with the area's more traditional architectural character.
J. Davis House residents will enjoy a selection of amenities which will start with a lounge in the lobby area, and extend to such facilities as a fitness centre, party room, and a sauna, all appointed by the interior design division of Graziani + Corazza Architects. The project will also feature landscaping by Terraplan, with new plantings set to animate the public realm along Yonge Street.
Additional information and renderings of the condominium development can be found in our dataBase file for the project, linked below. Want to get involved in the discussion? Check out the associated Forum threads, or leave a comment using the space provided at the bottom of this page.
