South of Yonge and Eglinton's high-rise cranes, Mattamy and Biddington's 9-storey J. Davis House condominium is bringing a mid-rise condominium to a more intimately scaled part of Toronto's Yonge Street corridor. Designed by Graziani + Corazza, the 191-unit building will span a compact city block from Belsize Drive to Millwood Road.

Bringing greater density to the area, the development will replace a parking lot and disused strip retail space, as well as a row of three-storey mixed-use buildings, and—more contentiously—a bank building that's estimated to have been built in the 1950s. Meeting Yonge Street with a retail-lined frontage, the development will contribute to the area's fine-grained cluster of storefronts, while adding a significant dose of residential space above.

With suites ranging in size from 295 ft² to 1,650 ft², a wide range of living spaces will be available, catering to a fairly diverse group of buyers. In recent months, we've previewed some of the project's suite layouts and interiors, which include a number of family-friendly units

Now turning to a look at the suite finishes, units at J. Davis House will be outfitted with contemporary finishes, with the interiors also appointed by Graziani + Corazza. Opening up interiors to abundant natural light, each suite will feature double-glazed, Low E floor-to-ceiling windows. Featuring smooth ceilings free of bulkheads and obstructions, the suites are designed to foster an open ambiance, even in more compact spaces.

Equipped with ensuite laundry facilities, units will be outfitted with an energy-efficient and space-saving stacked washer-dryer combination. Meanwhile, kitchens will feature stainless steel appliances, including a counter-depth fridge, a wall oven, in-cabinet microwave, dishwasher, and—in some units—a small wine fridge.

Bathrooms will feature framed cabinetry and marble countertops, while stand-alone showers will be equipped with "rain shower-style" showerheads. Some of the larger suites will also include walk-in closets and built-in organizers accessible from the master bedroom, while all sleeping spaces will be acoustically insulated to ensure privacy and comfort. 

Now over 75% sold out, the start of construction is approaching, and we will keep you updated as the project continues to move forward.
