The development of a new multi-res building in Toronto’s Junction neighbourhood has officially launched. On August 14, reps with Marlin Spring Developments and Greybrook Realty Partners broke ground on The Stockyards District Residences, a 10-story condominium that will rise in the St. Clair West and Keele Streets area to offer 236 suites within the city’s emerging Stockyards area.
“The Stockyards District is a thriving and complete community – from great shopping, local parks and schools, easy access to public transit, and highways, you can work and play all within a short walk from your new home,” said Pedro Lopes, Marlin Spring VP Land Development & Acquisitions. “[We] recognized these attributes when we purchased this site and embarked on a mission to develop a building that was deserving of this community.”
The Stockyards District Residences’ contemporary exterior is designed by Graziani + Corazza Architects. The aim is to invoke “New York-and Chicago-style streetscapes” with a look reflecting the condo’s historic industrial surroundings. Highlights include black window mullions and industrial accents on the contemporary balcony and terrace glass railings.
Interior architecture and design firm U31 is handling what goes on beyond the front doors. The building will feature a high-ceilinged lobby and executive concierge service; a ground-level patio with kitchen and barbecue station; a fully equipped fitness and yoga studio; kids playroom; and a party room featuring a floor-to-ceiling, double-sided black metal fireplace. Retail outlets are also planned for the ground floor.
Unit options will include 1-bedroom to 3-bedroom with den layouts and feature custom-designed kitchens and baths, as well as approximately nine-foot smooth ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glazing/window systems, energy-efficient kitchen appliances, and quartz slab countertops.
First occupies for The Stockyards District Residences are slated for November 2021.
