Crews are nearly finished excavation work at the site of 346 Davenport, which will soon house 35 condo units in Toronto’s coveted Annex neighbourhood.
The new project by Freed Developments and Trolleybus Urban Development Inc.
features a modern 10-storey tower. Located in an area of the Annex surrounded by commercial, retail and residential buildings, 346 Davenport replaces a row of low-rise single-family dwellings that were being used as commercial and apartment suites. Prior to demolition, these homes were painted white and used as the presentation centre for the project.
Designed by RAW Design, the tower features a contemporary exterior, characterized by floor-to-ceiling windows, marble-patterned cladding and vertical greenery accents.
Construction began in the summer of 2018, when the low-rise structures were demolished to make way for the new building. However, it wasn’t until July 2020 when heavy machinery showed up, marking the start of excavation. By the end of the month, excavation was well underway towards the property’s three levels of below-grade facilities.
Today, crews are nearing the completion of the excavation and shoring phase with soldier pile walls now surrounding the site. An excavator is still in the pit, however, it shouldn’t be long before workers start prepping the site for the crane.
When complete, 346 Davenport will house 35 suites ranging from 1,976 to 2,801 square feet. Interiors are by Burdifilek and boast high-end features like natural stone finishes, wide plank floors and integrated appliances.
