A revised rezoning and Site Plan Application (SPA) submitted to the City of Toronto last week finalizes details for a proposed condominium development at 321 Davenport, in the northern end of The Annex neighbourhood. The revisions to the plan of the nine-storey boutique condo—designed by Giannone Petricone Associates for Alterra Group of Companies—follows an LPAT Decision that approved the project in principle in March, 2019 and a subsequent initial SPA application submitted in August, 2019.

Following the initial application, comments by City staff guided revisions introduced in the current rezoning and SPA applications. Many of the revisions are minor in nature, addressing issues required for final approvals from the City. Though not much has changed on paper in terms of massing and interior layout, newly updated renderings and details of exterior finishes provide a clearer picture of what will be built on the site.

A range of exterior finishes are proposed, including a mix of three different types of clear glazing, four types of solid and perforated/textured metal panels, two shades of spandrel glazing, and clear glass balcony railings. Stone finishes and exposed concrete structural elements are proposed at street level. One notable revision is the extension of the building's bird-friendly glazing to cover the entire lower volume up to the fourth floor.

An additional street-level rendering offers a closer look at some of these materials, showing strong contrast between the stone-clad rectilinear base and the curving curtainwall glazed volume floating above.

The finishes are pictured in a materials sample board. One interesting feature is the textured metal material shown at the lower right of the image above, labeled PM-3 at centre-left on the sample board below.

Unchanged from previous plans, the building calls for just 23 condominium units, with just a single one-bedroom unit and the rest a mix of two and three-bedroom layouts.
