Continuing the third phase of Toronto's Regent Park Revitalization, the 27-storey KPMB-designed The Wyatt is adding more residential density to Block 26 of the reinvented mixed-income neighbourhood. Located just east of the completed One Park Place at Dundas and Sumach and kitty-corner from the Regent Park Aquatic Centre, the 342-unit market-rate project is now gearing up for the start of construction, with the tower levels set to overlook the recently completed Regent Park Athletic Grounds to the south.
The Daniels Corporation's slender point tower will situated between Sumach Street and Tubman Avenue—an upcoming north-south street—while a retail-lined, 6-storey podium will span the Dundas Street frontage. Topping the podium, a collection of community garden plots will allow for urban agriculture.
Immediately south of the garden plots, an outdoor terrace will top the podium's two-storey south frontage, with the space located alongside the IBI Group-appointed interior amenities. Inside, the third-floor will include a fitness centre, party room, craft space, and a bouldering cave.
Alongside the indoor and outdoor amenity spaces—which are clustered on the 6th floor—a dedicated children's space will be located on the 4th floor. Featuring a toy-filled play room, a craft space, and a theatre, the 'Kids' Zone' aims to bring a more family-oriented character to high-rise living.
Meanwhile, more detailed information about suite sizes and layouts is expected in the coming weeks, with units at The Wyatt set to feature 9' and 10' ceilings throughout the living and dining areas.
As part of the redevelopment's third phase—which is mostly concentrated at the southeast end of the Regent Park community—The Wyatt will be joined by a pair of TCHC projects occupying blocks 27 and 28.
Immediately to the south, Block 28's 22 townhomes are now nearing completion, while a 268-unit project at Block 27 is now above grade immediately east of The Wyatt's site. North of Dundas, many of the former community's low-rise buildings have also now been demolished to make way for blocks 16 and 17.
