This new condo project is a pre-construction mid-rise project by Terra Firma Homes. It is no secret that Toronto is facing a problem with affordable housing, so this development is allocating 8 of its dwellings to be sold as “Habitat Units” through Habitat for Humanity’s affordable housing initiative. 3385 Dundas Street West Condos will be located in the northern end of the Runnymede neighbourhood. Runnymede is mostly residential, but Dundas Street West provides an ample amount of shopping and dining opportunities.
This project is a mid-rise development that occupies the northern part of its entire city block. It is on the south side of Dundas Street West, and it faces north. Durie Street borders it to the west, and Beresford Avenue to the east. The southern border is occupied with existing residences.
This condo is a mixed-use development, with 1,11,980 square feet of floor space on the ground level being allocated to retail space. The building will house a total of 123 residential units – 38 one-bedroom units, 81 two-bedroom units, and 4 three-bedroom units. This development will have a three tiered parking garage, which will have 135 parking spaces.
In addition to having 135 parking spaces for cars, this development will also have 134 permanent spots for bicycles, doing its part in building a more environmentally sustainable building, and also keeping in line with the demand of new home buyers.
Interior amenities will account for a total of 1,850 square feet combined floor space that will be located on the the ground level and the roof. There will also be 3,625 square feet of outdoor floor space on the roof. The exterior floor space will likely be used as a communal rooftop terrace.
