A 22-storey mixed-use condo will rise in Toronto’s Annex neighbourhood as the first newly developed building in the history of the Designers Walk community—an area of the city that currently houses a multitude of showrooms and interior design and architectural firms.
Slated for completion in 2023, the condo will incorporate features for residents and clients of future firms to attract like-minded buyers and businesses, including a vertical forest and more than 10,000 square feet of flagship retail, showroom and office space.
“For us, fostering and supporting our professional community has been at the centre of everything we do,” said Joab Igra, founder, Designers Walk. “We’re building a hub in which architects and designers will be able to live and work in the centre of Canada’s design industry, giving them unprecedented opportunity and access to our community.”
Developer Cityzen Development Group currently plans to build 92 units at the 314 Davenport Road location.
“Designers Walk is known as a destination for Toronto’s designers and architects to source and procure show-stopping design elements for their clients, and as a home-base for prominent firms,” said Igra. “This new chapter with our expansion into residential real estate allows us to bring that beauty and experience to all those who want to live in a space that’s truly unique and forward-thinking.”
