Junction Point is a new eight-storey condominium coming soon to 2625 Dundas Street West in the Junction. The project by Gairloch Developments is the latest in its portfolio of design-led mid-rise residential buildings in Toronto. It offers thoughtful exterior design by architectsAlliance, led by renowned architect Peter Clewes, and contemporary interior spaces by interdisciplinary design firm Commute Home. Prospective homebuyers can register online to receive priority status and the latest updates.
Located 20 minutes west of downtown Toronto and just north of High Park, the Junction is a vibrant community with a celebrated industrial past. The neighbourhood is named after the intersection of two First Nations trails, which date back prior to European settlement, and later became the spot where the CP Railway east-west mainline tracks crossed the CN Railway tracks.
Today, the Junction is dotted with charming historic buildings and modern loft spaces with local businesses on the ground level, along with a mix of Victorian and post-Victorian homes on quiet residential streets. Neighbourhood staples and amenities include Honest Weight, Farmhouse Tavern, Organic Garage, Loblaws, F45 Training and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).
“Historically home to industrious and design-minded people, the Junction continues to attract residents who gravitate to design,” said Bill Gardiner, President of Gairloch Developments. “We created Junction Point to provide a home for people who want to live in a design-forward building that reflects the identity of its neighbourhood.”
Bringing that vision to life is Peter Clewes, principal of the Toronto-based firm architectsAlliance. Clewes and his team have created a compelling, three-sided building clad with red-brick veneer, that serves as an homage to the Junction. It’s a sophisticated reimagining of the 20th-century warehouse that flanks the site on Dundas Street, and also takes cues from the nearby Victorian homes and storefronts.
At ground level, the building provides a generous public promenade that can accommodate families with strollers, pedestrians with dogs, and older residents with shopping buggies or walkers. Above the double-height ground floor are a series of setbacks including the top two floors, which are fully glazed along the east and west sides, limiting shadow impact on the street and reducing the apparent height of the building from ground level. The west elevation is terraced to create private outdoor space and to mitigate the presence of the project to its low-rise neighbours to the west.
Inside, Junction Point features a collection of layouts for all types of homebuyers, from studio suites to three-bedroom plans. The homes start from the $400,000s and offer open-concept layouts ranging from 391 to 1,419 square feet. Designed by Commute Home, the suites boast nine- or ten-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, and Caesarstone countertops and backsplashes in kitchens and bathrooms. Kitchens are also outfitted with custom-designed Trevisano cabinetry with soft-close doors and drawers, and a stainless steel appliance package including a built-in oven, gas cooktop, hood fan, built-in microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher.
Amenities include a well-equipped gym, visitor parking with EV-enabled parking spots, and a large, multi-purpose lounge with a kitchen and outdoor terrace for entertaining. Residents will also benefit from a smart building system, which provides automated access, security, parcel lockers, amenity management and smart home integration.
Sales, managed by Paul Johnston, are expected to start this fall, with an anticipated completion date of 2022.
