Picture a modern mid-rise building in Toronto’s east-end that features a glass facade, combined with irregularly-placed balconies and varying tones of brown.

This is Streetcar Developments’ latest vision for The Taylor, a modern condo and townhouse community in the heart of Leslieville that aims to blend into the neighbourhood’s cultural surroundings.

Located at Dundas Street East and Carlaw Street, the new community will boast a double-height lobby that sits at the end of Boston Avenue, which runs perpendicular to the building.

Thanks to the work of TACT Architecture and Seven Haus Design, the building entrance will make a statement with its vertical, bold-white metal design. This will double as a horizontal canopy that will become the lobby ceiling.

The modern exterior will also be clad in glass panels that vary in their opaqueness, mirroring the windows of warehouse buildings within the neighbourhood.

Similarly, the south-facing facade will feature modern balconies with white concrete frames placed erratically around the building. The effect? A distinct look that takes after the older architecture in the area.

And while most buildings achieve a brown exterior with standard brick, Streetcar has opted to use a material called Öko-skin. The concrete slats are much wider than typical bricks and give off a more modern and refined look.

The suites themselves will contain similar heritage-inspired features, like exposed concrete ceilings and spacious balconies. Other features include engineered hardwood flooring and quartz kitchen countertops.

The distinct design of the building will also complement the modern exterior of The Carlaw, another Streetcar development that sits adjacent to The Taylor and is currently under construction.

No matter the lifestyle, residents will have a wide-range of suite designs to choose from, whether it be a one-bedroom, two-bedroom plus den or two- and four-level urban townhomes.

Interested? The presentation centre is set to open this spring, so stay tuned for more details!

Prices for available units start in the mid $200,000s.
