the carlaw construction site

There’s been a great deal of action happening in Toronto’s Leslieville neighbourhood over the past few months, and we’re not just talking about its thriving arts and culture scene. The Carlaw at the northeast corner of Dundas and Carlaw is starting to take shape and will soon reach street level.

The construction crew has been hard at work pouring concrete and laying rebar on the P1 level, which is the last of the development’s three underground floors. They expect to reach ground level within the next month.

Streetcar Developments and Dundee Realty are also bringing Crow’s Theatre to the ground floor of the building, injecting even more culture and life into the community. The 200-seat performing arts facility will be a destination in and of itself.

We paid a visit to the construction site to view the progress and snap some pics. Check it out below:

This is the rooftop view from 349 Carlaw Avenue, a neighbouring building that’s only three storeys tall. We imagine the unobstructed views on the 12th floor of The Carlaw will be pretty spectacular.

Once complete, the condo and townhouse community will house 320 lofts and 21 live/work townhomes. Residents can also take advantage of a number of amenities, including a state-of-the-art fitness centre, two guests suites and a modern rooftop terrace complete with lounges and barbecues.

The Carlaw will also boast a central courtyard on the ground floor, which will be the perfect spot to sip on coffee and skim the paper on sunny mornings.

Prices for available suites start from $242,900. Units range in size from 400 to 1,300 square feet.
