Slightly north of Avenue Road and St. Clair West, a boutique condominium building touting “family-sized” units has been proposed by Haven Developments.
In early June, an application to build a three-storey condo building at 101 Heath Street West was submitted to city planners on behalf of the Vaughan-based builder. The builder has previously worked on several Greater Toronto condo and townhouse developments, including 4Hundred East Mall Stacked Townhomes and The Clarkson Urban Towns.

The 12,583-square-foot lot on the southern side of Heath Street West, located between Oriole
Road and Deer Park Crescent, is currently home to a pair of three- and two-storey detached buildings. The two-storey residence at 101 Heath Street West would be demolished while a portion of the four-unit rental building at 103 Heath Street West would be kept intact.
The new T-shaped project would include 10 “family-sized” suites, according to application documents prepared by urban planning firm, Bousfields Inc. Of the 10 family-sized suites, there would be seven two-bedroom and three three-bedroom units spanning a gross floor area of 16,328 square feet. The existing building at 103 Heath Street West would be incorporated into a newly-built brick addition, connected by a central glass-framed atrium and lobby.

“The central atrium and lobby will be glazed to connect the existing building and the new addition through significant glazing, preserving sightlines to all three of the retained facades of 103 Heath Street West from the public realm,” explains the application’s project cover letter.
At the rear of the building, setbacks from the property line would allow enough space for patios for units 101 and 102 on the ground floor, as well as at-grade patio space for units 103 and 104. Inset balconies would be designed for suites 302 and 304, along with a terrace for unit 301. Underground parking with 12 spaces would be provided, including 13 long-term bicycle parking spots.
