As if the Junction Triangle is not experiencing enough revitalization and redevelopment, there might be one more project to add to the roster. In case you’re not familiar with the neighbourhood or projects happening, I’ll briefly fill you in. There is the Cornerstone Lofts that will be located in the church at Perth and Wallace as well as a new building and there is the Automotive Development Project, starting with The Sterling Lofts. Also, just to the east of the Junction Triangle, on the corner of Lansdowne and Dupont, is a huge development happening of new condo buildings, townhouses, hard lofts and a Metro. It’s only a matter of time before a Starbucks shows up, and we all know what that means.
So here is the latest on the development proposal of 299 Campbell Ave (corner of Dupont Ave), please keep in mind that no plans have been submitted to the City, this was just a meeting with the developer and the residents:
- mixed-used commercial and residential building
- podium of 6 storeys, step up to 8 storeys in the back and further up and back to 18 storeys
- mix of single, one, two and 3 bedroom units
- 2 levels of retail/commercial & office space
- 14 live/work units along Campbell Ave
- 3 levels of underground parking
- about 34,000 sq ft of commercial
- about 22,000 sq ft of office/employment space
- 12,000 sq ft of retail
- 225,000 sq ft of residential space
- Developer is TAS Design Build
- Architect is Stephen Teeple
- Construction to ideally start 24-36 months from now
I couldn’t be more excited about all the developments as I live in the area and I’m totally up for the improvement. It helps everyone in the neighbourhood by bringing up property value, creating conveniences within the neighbourhood, bringing the community together and giving money back to local businesses.
I will be monitoring this proposal and project closely and keep you all updated with any new developments.
In the meantime, here are some renderings of the project…..
