The Junction is one of Toronto’s most desirable neighbourhoods, and Slate Asset Management has just announced plans for a beautiful new mid-rise condo, which should have the whole city talking.
The new Junction House development has been designed by acclaimed Canadian architects superkül, along with interior design firm Dialogue 38. The innovative building is Slate’s first residential project, and further evidence of its commitment to leading design and city building in Canada.
“We invest in designers because we believe in design innovation,” says Brandon Donnelly, VP of Development for Slate Asset Management. “For us, good design moves beyond aesthetics and actually solves problems and creates value for people. We want to empower each of our collaborators to come up with bold ideas, as well as think beyond our individual projects and consider the broader community.”
Located at 2720 Dundas St W, the development was designed to be a new gateway into the vibrant Junction neighbourhood. The design is intended to define a new Canadian brand of minimalism, while still reflecting the historic material palette and creative energy of the Junction community.
“One of our inspirations was picking up on Scandinavian and Japanese approaches to minimalism, but through the lens of the Junction. What would that look like? How could we make sure our homegrown brand of minimalism is seen as approachable and in keeping with the neighbourhood?” says Donnelly. “We also really wanted to look at multi-storey suites – which eventually became The House Collection — and explore how we could replicate the single-family experience in a boutique mid-rise format,” he adds, citing the influx of families into the Junction and the need for new residential options in the city more broadly.
The nine-storey building will feature a spacious lobby, which will double as a co-working space, perfect for the modern working professional. The building’s gym will draw on warm materials found in the suites and common areas. The entire design of the building is intended to encourage active use, so that residents can mingle and socially engage with one another.
One, two and three-bedroom suites are available, as well as the signature House Collection, with units ranging from 500 to over 1,500 square feet and prices starting in the $400,000s.
