A new design language has emerged on a stretch of Toronto’s Davenport Road east of Avenue Road that mashes up Haussmann-style classic with contemporary design. Now, a proposal carries this local design trend west of Avenue Road to Davenport and Bedford where a 15-storey condominium building at 287 Davenport was proposed earlier this month by developer Burnac Corporation.

The AUDAX architecture-designed building is proposed on an irregularly-shaped 1,849.4 m² lot at the southeast corner of Bedford and Davenport, and would rise to a height of 192 ft / 58.6 m. The total gross floor area (GFA) of 13,548 m² would consist primarily of residential space, accounting for 13,270 m² or almost 98% of the GFA. The remaining 278 m² would take the form of retail space at the northwest corner of the ground floor.

The 106 condo suites are proposed in a mix of 57 one-bedrooms, 28 two-bedrooms, and 11 three-bedrooms, which would be served by amenity spaces housed on the ground and second floors.

Architectural plans offer a preview of the exterior materials proposed for the building, which would form heavily-articulated facades over Davenport and Bedford. Materials include precast concrete panels in both brick and stone finishes, aluminum panels and mullions, as well as curtainwall glazing.

Parking for the development would be provided in a four-level underground garage accessed via a covered drive aisle along the east lot line off Davenport Road. A total of 124 parking spaces are proposed, with 110 for residents, 11 for visitors, and 3 for non-residential uses. In addition, 169 bicycle parking spaces are proposed, including 153 long-term and 16 short-term spaces.
