A new mid-rise development from TAS is set to rise between North York’s Downsview Park and an extensive forested ravine system. The Keeley, located on Keele Street, just south of Sheppard Avenue, was designed by Teeple Architects to bring an energy-efficient contemporary urban design to Downsview Park.
The 12-storey condominium will feature a red and white brick façade with punched windows, which reference the 1960s-era architecture of the surrounding homes. Highlighting the building’s unique connection to green space, The Keeley will feature a transparent lobby with glazing on all sides to provide sightlines to Downsview Park. It will also feature a landscaped private courtyard, 6,650 square feet of amenity space and street level retail stores, which TAS believes is essential to community building.
The development will have access to over 15 km of ravine trails just outside the building to the west, with Downsview Park, a major civic park, across the street to the east.
“The Keeley is a piece of a bigger vision of what a new urban mixed-use community around Downsview Park could look like,” said Mazyar Mortazavi, president and CEO of TAS, in a press release. “It’s not hard to imagine five years out, Downsview Park emerging as one of the top destinations in the entire city. It’s ideally located along a pivotal spine in North York that connects the 401 to Steeles. The area has incredible social and physical infrastructure, including the new Downsview TTC and GO stations, York University and Centennial College campuses and Humber River Hospital.”
The Keeley will feature homes ranging from 500 to 1,500 square feet, in one-, two- and three-bedroom configurations, with prices starting in the mid $300,000s.
