A new flatiron building is coming to Toronto’s west end.

The building is part of ELAD Canada’s Galleria on the Park “master-planned” community. The multi-use tower marks it’s entryway into the 20-acre site at Dufferin and Dupont with a flatiron design that “pays homage to the area’s unique industrial heritage.”

Standing at 31-storeys, Galleria III features a deep red brick exterior at the podium, “honouring both the industrial heritage of the site as well as the neighbouring homes.”

There will also be metal panels inspired by intricate patterns of steel radiators featured on the tower’s exterior and vertical metal guardrails on balconies.

And two storeys of retail at ground level will offer food, beverage, and personal services.

The building will house contemporary furnishings and the double-height lobby features seating, custom artwork, and recharge stations.

The 11th floor is a dedicated social space, complete with a lounge and hanging orb fireplace, billiards and a private dining room with a chef’s kitchen and wine cellars, and a youth hub for all ages.

There is also an outdoors area for a barbecue, games space, and an elevated pool with cabanas overlooks the tree canopy north of Dupont.

“Rising at the entrance of Galleria on the Park, Galleria III will become the new landmark building for not only our community but for the West End,”Rafael Lazer, CEO of ELAD Canada said in a statement.

“This marks an exciting new chapter for Toronto’s cityscape. We have always believed in this special neighbourhood, already a source for so much ingenuity and entrepreneurship and we are proud to deliver better community amenities, green spaces and beautiful architecture to the area.”

Galleria III was designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects (HPA), who specifically selected this block because of its unique shape.

The Galleria on the Park community, will have a brand-new 8-acre city park, a 95,000 square feet, community centre, pedestrian mews and retail spaces.

Construction for the first phase of the eighth-building Galleria on the Park development began in August.
