Coming soon to Toronto’s sought-after West Queen West, Cabin is Curated Properties latest project after launching some of the city’s most unique residences, including Lanehouse on Bartlett in Bloordale Village and Dovercourt 455 at College Street and Dovercourt Road.

BuzzBuzzHome News dropped by the site at 45 Dovercourt Road this week to get a sneak peek of the presentation centre that is currently under construction. Using several empty shipping containers, the developer has created a truly eye-catching structure that mimics Cabin’s stacked architecture and profile.


When the project launches later this fall, Cabin will introduce an intimate collection of two-storey towns to the popular West Queen West neighbourhood. In true Curated fashion, the developer has partnered with Toronto-based RAW Design to create a community that’s completely original.

The result is a six-storey townhome project inspired by the cabins usually found deep in the Canadian wilderness. Design elements like the use of wood, stone and dark metal panels are reminiscent of a rural getaway lodge and provide a northern-inspired escape within a metropolitan landscape.

“Cabin is a logical next step for Curated,” said Adam Ochshorn, Principal at Curated Properties. “We’re very driven by the West Queen West neighbourhood and the call in Toronto for something local, artisanal and authentic.”


The sculptural facade boasts an articulated stepped design that delineates the units and creates a cascading effect, while various shades of wood are used to break up the building’s frame.

“We designed Cabin to become an intimate community; a place purchasers can relate to as a home, rather than an investment,” said Roland Rom Colthoff, Principal at RAW Design.

“We used a few key elements — articulated steps to delineate the two-story units, variation in shades of wood to break the building’s frame, a cascading effect in structure — to create an uncommon level of visual quality.”


The rustic theme of the exterior is echoed inside where Mason Studio has designed three colour palettes to choose from with each featuring a selection of natural stone, wood, marble and porcelain materials.

The layouts are thoughtfully designed with inviting living areas, lots of natural light, and modern eat-in kitchens with integrated appliances, full-height pantries and concealed-hood gas ranges. Each home also gets an abundance of outdoor space in the form of yards, private rooftop gardens or mid-building terraces with expansive city views.


Suites at Cabin range from $499,900 to over $1 million, and are available in a wide selection of layouts including family-friendly two- and three-bedroom units.
