After a hugely successful grand opening in late October, Gairloch’s highly anticipated Junction Point project is officially open to the public. The eight-storey condominium is the developer’s latest in its portfolio of design-forward, 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.
During the grand opening, Gairloch unveiled a sleek new presentation centre located at 2688 Dundas Street West. Designed by Hamid Samad and Sara Parisotto of Commute Design Studio, the presentation centre reimagines a former Coffee Time and transforms it into a stunning showroom that complements the elegance and style of Junction Point, at the gateway to the Junction.
The pair’s creative vision includes statement light fixtures, bespoke millwork, and furniture pieces all designed and made locally in Toronto. Prospective homebuyers will get a taste of life at Junction Point with true-to-spec kitchen and bathroom vignettes, appointed with high-end features and finishes.
The Italian kitchen by Trevisana boasts two-tone cabinets and premium appliances, while a custom, Commute-designed island takes centre stage. A frameless glass shower in the bathroom creates a modern, streamlined appearance and is accented with a luxurious rain shower head for a spa-like experience.
A scale model of the building highlights the compelling, three-sided design characterized by clean, contemporary lines, expansive glass, and spacious balconies and terraces. Clad with a red-brick veneer, the exterior serves as an homage to the neighbourhood, including the 20th-century warehouse that flanks the project site on Dundas Street, along with 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.
Located 20 minutes west of downtown Toronto and just north of High Park, the Junction is a vibrant community with a celebrated industrial past. Today, the neighbourhood is dotted with charming historic buildings, modern loft spaces with local businesses on the ground level, along with a mix of Victorian and post-Victorian homes on quiet residential streets. Residents of Junction Point will benefit from its central location within walking distance to boutique shops, cafes, restaurants and grocery stores. Some of these staples and amenities include Honest Weight, Farmhouse Tavern, Organic Garage, Loblaws, Freshco, F45 Training and the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA).
Within the building, residents will have access to a long list of lifestyle amenities, from a fully-equipped gym and party room to ample visitor parking and EV-enabled spaces. The residence is also equipped with automated access, security, parcel lockers, amenity management and smart building integration.
Remaining units start from $650,000, and offer spacious, open-concept layouts that maximize space and functionality. The 111 suites range from 391 to 1,419 square feet, each featuring nine- or ten-foot ceilings, hardwood floors, smart home technology and Caesarstone countertops and backsplashes in kitchens and bathrooms. Kitchens are also outfitted with custom-designed Trevisana cabinetry with soft-close doors and drawers, and a stainless steel appliance package consisting of a built-in oven, gas cooktop, hood fan, built-in microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher.
