Since the end of the summer, a new class of developments have graduated from the construction phase into completion. We track all of this information on a daily basis with UrbanToronto Pro, and with this article we're summarizing the projects which we have switched to completed in our database files. We should note that by completed, we mean substantially completed, to the point that the buildings have generally allowed occupation to begin, even if there are some loose ends to still take care of!
Lights are turning on in the Scotiabank North Tower, the final piece of the Bay Adelaide Centre complex developed by Brookfield Property Partners located in the heart of Toronto’s Downtown Core. The 32-storey tower brings more than 800,000ft² of commercial office space to the sprawling complex, and achieves AAA class through a high standard of technological design in construction and operation.
This residential condominium from iKore Developments began welcoming occupancy in late August after two and a half years of construction that began in the early half of 2020. The 21-storey tower, designed by Richmond Architects, will deliver 216 units to the southwest corner of Lawrence Avenue West and Keele Street in Toronto’s Amesbury neighbourhood.
Up in the Ledbury Park neighbourhood, between Lawrence Avenue West and the 401, Avenue & Park, a luxury 7-Storey mid-rise from Stafford Developments and Greybrook Realty Partners, has marked the end of major construction. The exclusive 35 units were nearly sold out before demolition of the existing building began in 2017, and with doors open officially, the wait for occupancy is ending.
In mid-September, a block of 3-storey stacked townhouses was completed and has now opened doors to 24 units in the on Dervock Crescent, located just south of Sheppard Avenue East, between Bayview Avenue and Leslie Street. From developers Buildcrest and Algar Developments Inc, the modern build features a mix of brick, wood, and metal finishes, while rooftop terraces offer private outdoor space.
The southwest corner of Avenue Road and Lonsdale Road is now the home of a luxury residential building from Preston Group and DBS Developments. Reaching 20-storeys, the building accounts for 177 units in the Forest Hill neighbourhood, and includes 44 rental replacement units along with 133 new ones.
Effort Trust Building (Hamilton)
On the Hamilton counterpart of King Street East, a 5-storey office building with an angular design from Eposto Architects is being opened by developers Effort Group. Clad in dark tinted window-wall, the sleek building is a new asset in a rapidly redeveloping city centre.
This 9-storey mid-rise development from Tridel is part of a string of similarly scaled projects spanning from Ossington Avenue to Spadina Road that are bringing a spike in density to Dupont Street. Located just west of Spadina Road, Bianca benefits from the neighbourhood quality of The Annex while delivering a dynamic design that enables 216 units to enjoy a wealth of outdoor terrace space.
Erin Square Condos (Mississauga)
The end of the summer marked the completion of a 2-tower residential development on Metcalfe Avenue in the Erin Mills area of Mississauga that has now started occupancy for 408 units. The two towers from Pemberton Group are 21 storeys each, and are built above a shared podium where residents will find a mix of indoor and outdoor amenity space.
