Be part of the Davenport Road transformation with this innovative building, described as a “vertical garden.” Designers Walk Condos is a pre-construction condominium proposed by Cityzen Development Group for The Annex neighbourhood in Toronto.
Slated to stand 27 storeys with 122 residential units and two floors of restaurant and design studio space, it’s a refreshing project with a unique design that will make it a coveted place to call home and enhance the entire stretch.
Located in a leafy, eclectic neighbourhood that is actively modernizing, the building pairs a selection of two and three-bedroom suites with a prime site just steps from the subway, restaurants and the upscale shopping district of Yorkville. The condo project has yet to schedule an occupancy date so be sure to register with us for up-to-date information.
The location for this development occupies three sites in total at the northwest corner of Davenport and Bedford, backing onto the famed “Designer’s Walk” lane. The proposal calls for a structure 27 storeys at its tallest, with a unique massing that sees the building step up in the southeast direction from the fourth storey until it reaches the 16th storey. From the 17th storey upwards, the building is designed to rise as a slender tower to its final height of 27 storeys.
With architecture by RAW Design, it presents as an undulating and curvaceous structure, punctuated by greenery. Each unit is proposed with an outdoor space that includes a “vertical forest” component, which will contain extensive vegetation.
The unit mix will include 37 two-bedroom, 46 two-bedroom-with-den, 26 three-bedroom and 12 three-bedroom-with-den layouts, making this residence a fantastic option for professional families, couples or executives who want a spacious home office.
2,604 square feet of indoor amenity space will be incorporated into the building, along with an outdoor terrace on the fifth floor. Residents will have access to 201 parking spaces and 140 bike spaces in an underground garage.
The project also proposes commercial space on the ground floor, which is encouraged to house design and studio-related businesses, along with a café and two pedestrian walkways winding through the site to help create a vibrant public realm.
Location & Neighbourhood
The Annex is one of the city’s most sought-after residential neighbourhoods and this stretch in particular seems to be actively transforming to accommodate the number of residents who want to call the leafy, charming pocket home.
It’s an eclectic neighbourhood where the sprawling University of Toronto campus with its Gothic architecture encourages a busy population of students and faculty.
The main stretches are lined with trendy shops, cafes and bars, while the side streets house an impressive collection of Victorian homes. Overall, residents here have a significantly higher-than-average income compared to the rest of Toronto.
The neighbourhood is well-served by a number of subway stations, one of which is just steps from the condominium site. In fact, it’s one of the only neighbourhoods in Toronto to feature an intersection with subway service in all four directions.
