Located at 1220 Dundas Street East, the seven-storey building will neighbour The Carlaw, another sought-after Streetcar condominium that’s already under construction. Residents will be steps from Crow’s Theatre, a new 200-seat cultural venue that will house a studio rehearsal area, trendy bar and community programming space.
Not surprisingly, Leslieville has been dubbed the new Queen Street West thanks to the many hip restaurants, shops and entertainment venues that pepper the area. It’s also known as Toronto’s light and film district, since a variety of art galleries and film studios are within walking distance.
Speaking of walking, the pedestrian-friendly area earned a 93 on Walk Score. Residents can explore the many nearby parks and bike trails before taking in the views of Lake Ontario.
And a regular exercise routine (there’s a gym inside the building too) is deserving of some quality grub. Visit the local Farmers’ Market and Leslieville Cheese Market or hit one of the major grocery chains that are mere blocks away. Leslieville also holds the title of Toronto’s number one brunch destination… so there’s that.
The building itself will boast a modern red-brown exterior with bold window patterns designed by TACT Architecture, which speaks to the historic warehouses within the area.
Step inside The Taylor and the lofts and townhomes will be clad in nine-foot exposed-concrete ceilings, engineered hardwood floors, quartz kitchen countertops, integrated appliances and more.
The new development will include 96 lofts that range from one-bedroom to two-bedroom plus den designs. Residents can also select smartly-designed two-level urban townhomes with three bedrooms.
Prices for available units start in the mid $200,000s.
