This new condo project involves the re-purposing of a historic church, built in 1907.
260 High Park Avenue Condos is a new modern condominium by Trac Development Inc. in Toronto. This pre-construction project is located at 260 High Park Ave, just southwest of the Keele and Dundas intersection in the High Park neighbourhood.
The project will stand four storeys and house 69 units. Two levels of underground parking will provide 107 spaces for vehicles and 78 for bicycle storage.
The original portion of 260 High Park Avenue Condo project will serve as the main structure, housing the building’s main lobby, along with residential suites. Suites on this portion’s fourth floor will feature loft space within the original sanctuary roof, which will be retrofitted with skylights.
A one-storey greenhouse will line the north side of this structure, while the east side will feature outdoor terraces for ground-floor units.
The new addition will extend in an L-shape to the west and south sides of the historic portion.
This framing will naturally form an internal landscaped courtyard that shelters the building’s main residential entrance. In this addition, the developers have proposed residential units along with indoor and outdoor amenity space.
The ground floor will feature a lounge and fitness centre spanning approximately 1,469-square-feet, which will connect to 2,276 square-feet of outdoor amenities. An additional 1,876 square-feet of outdoor amenities is proposed, in the form of a rooftop patio.
All 260 High Park Condos suites on the third and fourth floors will include private terraces, made possible by the building’s stepbacks, which will not only offer the desirable terrace aspect, but give the building itself texture and architectural appeal.
This is a unique High Park condo development that retains elements of historical value, yet introduces a subtle modern touch and accommodates a growing population.
Location & Neighbourhood
It’s hard to find a resident who wouldn’t want to live in the High Park neighbourhood. It remains a desirable destination for both tenants and homeowners, filled with Victorian architecture, leafy streets, excellent public transit access, and of course, the renowned High Park itself.
Here you’ll find 400 acres of green space. Part of the park remains in a natural state, dotted with oak trees, willows and ponds, while the other portion features sports fields, an outdoor pool, landscaped gardens, an amphitheatre and a restaurant. Arguably one of Toronto’s most picturesque attractions, the park is particularly stunning in the spring, when its cherry blossoms are in full bloom.
The site of 260 High Park Condos is a ten-minute walk from the shops and cafes on Bloor Street West, as well as the subway station. Walk a few minutes north and you’ll reach the trendy Dundas Street West stretch, part of the Junction neighbourhood. With a bus stop at your door, the transit options are endless. The area boasts a high Walk Score of 89 and a Transit Score of 78, making getting around easy without the use of a car.
