6 Dawes Rd Condos: A Multi-Tower Development Makes Substantial Changes to Their Original Proposal

Posted by Editor on February 19, 2023

In May 2019, Carlyle Communities and SLATE Asset Management jointly acquired 2.9-acres of land in the well-known Danforth Village neighbourhood. This development would replace an under-utilized self storage facility located at 6 Dawes Road in the south-east corner of Main Street and Danforth Avenue. The original plans submitted to the City were set to include three mixed-use towers, a new community centre and an entrance from the podium to the Danforth GO Station. In January 2021, some changes were made to the proposed development.

Three high-rise towers with a combined height of 40, 46, and 49 stories were initially proposed. The proposal also included a podium-mounted community center run by the city and a GO station entrance on the same podium.

A fourth tower has been added to the proposal, and the original towers’ heights have been adjusted. The design calls for four towers with heights of 19, 37, 44, and 46 stories. In addition to these modifications, the integrated GO Station has been eliminated from the proposed development because Metrolinx and the developer could not agree on how to proceed in a way that would benefit both parties. In accordance with the City’s request, the community center has also been eliminated from the planned development.

Despite these modifications, Carlyle Communities and SLATE Asset Management have created a new vision for their neighborhood that will continue to provide residents with a transit-oriented
