We recently caught up with the ongoing construction of Dash Developments' Avenue 151 as the mid-rise condominium development closes in on completion on Toronto's Avenue Road, just south of Davenport. Since our late January update covered the Avenue Road frontage of the building, photos were recently posted to the UrbanToronto Forum that highlight the organic curves and details of the building's east facade.
Unlike the relatively flat street elevation, Avenue 151's backside takes on more of a curvilinear form. Large wraparound balconies bow outward, with the curved massing featuring the same textured precast panels seen on the west side, as well as a unique balcony guard system of gold-hued metal railings springing from the precast wrap—a change from the industry standard of glazing or perforated metal.
At the north end of the west elevation the lines straighten out to the same alternating precast pattern seen along Avenue Road.
Designed by Teeple Architects, with Giovanni A. Tassone Architects serving as Architect of Record, the 10-storey building has been under construction since the end of 2017. Behind the balconies, the cladding consists of window wall with gold-hued mullions, spandrel, and clear glazing.
Once complete, Avenue 151 will bring 70 condo new units to the neighbourhood. Residents will have access to a selection of common and amenity spaces appointed by ESQAPE Design. Landscaping is by Strybos Barron King.
