Castlepoint Numa has some big plans for Perth Avenue and Sterling Road in Toronto’s Lower Junction community. The developer has been working to redevelop an eight acre site at 158 Sterling Road into a vibrant mixed-use community with offices, retail, cultural and residential spaces.
Centred around the Tower Automotive Building — built in 1919 — the master-planned community pays homage to its industrial routes by preserving the former auto parts factory. Once restored, the heritage building will once again be buzzing with activity as it becomes the commercial and cultural heart of the community. The first five floors of the building will be home to the Museum of Contemporary Art, with its vaulted ceilings and fluted columns providing a dramatic backdrop for the gallery. The remaining levels will consist of new commercial and office spaces with sweeping views of the city.
Located adjacent to the tower, Museum FLTS. will be the residential component of the community offering 150 units in a variety of one-, two- and three-bedroom layouts. Designed by interior design firm AOD, the open concept layouts are complemented by generous outdoor spaces including balconies or semi-enclosed outdoor rooms with perforated screen panels.
From the outside, the panels create a striking, articulated facade envisioned by renowned architect Peter Clewes of architectsAlliance. The unique design was inspired by the artistic character of the neighbourhood, while also providing a nod to its industrial past through the use of aluminum.
Within the community, residents will benefit from a number of new amenities including a childcare facility, public park, and a private road to ease access and mobility. Existing amenities include several parks and greenspaces, public and Catholic schools, and convenience and grocery stores including Loblaws and an LCBO. The area is also well connected to public transportation with the Bloor GO Station, Dundas West and Lansdowne subway stations, all within walking distance of the site.
