Brandy Lane Homes has announced plans to partner with the City of Toronto to revitalize Robertson Davies Park after Hydro One mistakenly cut down 29 Norway Maple trees last month. The Hydro One crew was on-site early September to prune trees away from nearby power lines but cut the trees down without prior permission or consultation.
The developer is building The Davies Condominiums located just north of the park at Avenue Road and Cottingham. The boutique building was also named after internationally renowned Canadian author, Robertson Davies and was designed by Daniel Cowling of SMV Architects. When complete, the nine-story residence will feature a contemporary profile characterized by a stone, wood and glass facade that blends well within the established neighbourhood. Inside, the 41 units will have wraparound balconies and views of the neighbouring park and the community of Summerhill.
“I have had positive conversations with Ward 22 Councillor Josh Matlow and together with the City of Toronto and through community meetings and discussions, we are formulating a plan of revitalizing the Park in the wake of this most disappointing development,” said David Hirsh, President of Brandy Lane Homes. “We will work with the city and area residents to achieve the best possible solution going forward for Robertson Davies Park, so it continues to be an important neighbourhood amenity.”
To assist in rectifying the Hydro One error, Brandy Lane Homes has retained award-winning landscape architecture and urban design firm NAK Design Strategies. NAK was originally hired to enhance the look of the north side of Robertson Davies Park adjacent to the condominium, and expect to work with the city and Hydro One to ensure a cohesive design of the south side.
