While often overshadowed by the cultural offerings found on the Greektown stretch of Toronto's Danforth Avenue—more often just "The Danforth"—the more affordable eastern stretches of the arterial thoroughfare are witnessing a surge in investment as developers aim to build upon the street's walkability and rapid transit access. A number of projects will revitalize this part of Danforth Avenue, many of which will enrich the local streetscapes with the addition of residential density and, just as importantly, new retail. One such project is Diam Developments' On the Danforth Condos, a 10-storey Onespace Unlimited-designed condominium development planned for the stretch between Woodbine and Main Street TTC stations.
We have already covered the project's design, suites, and presentation centre in earlier stories, and we are now getting a closer look at the EsQape Design-appointed amenity spaces that will be available to residents of On the Danforth. The building's ground level lobby will feature zen-like tree-themed screens and accents of wood and stone, and will be outfitted with a concierge desk, and a lounge with fireplace.
Additional common spaces will include a fitness centre, a party room, and a private dining room. Pet owners at On The Danforth will also appreciate the pet spa planned for the building.
The project's design incorporates a series of stepbacks that transition the building's massing down from the taller Danforth frontage to meet the scale of the established low-rise neighbourhood to the south, creating a number of south-facing terraces. While most of these terraces will serve as private outdoor space for the development's condo units, two will be reserved for common use. One of the two outdoor amenity terraces can be seen on the far right of the image below.
Now 60% sold, a limited-time incentive is being offered until May 30th, where buyers will enjoy a $2000 West Elm gift card and free locker with purchase of a suite.
