It’s no secret Toronto is among the most expensive places to live in Canada — North America, even. It’s one of the catches of living in a thriving, cultural metropolis that just exudes cool.
A true rarity just cropped up in the city’s coolest neighbourhoods: the Junction, a collection of impeccably designed condo residences starting from the $500,000s.
The eight-storey building, Junction Point by Gairloch Developments, offers a selection of 85 unique floorplans with studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom units. With only 111 suites, it’s quite a limited opportunity and is expected to fill up quickly.
The triangular-shaped building — a nod to the neighbourhood’s ‘Junction Triangle’ nickname — is a distinctive landmark and ode to the intersection of Dundas, Dupont, and Annette. Nearby, Gairloch recently opened a striking presentation gallery by Commute Design at 2688 Dundas West where you can scope out the property’s interior finishes, amenities, floorplans, and pricing.
The hip neighbourhood is a fascinating mix of industrial buildings, trendy bars, restaurants, art galleries, boutiques, and tree-lined residential streets. Looking east from one of the building’s many terraces and patios, you’ll be struck by Toronto’s downtown skyline; peering west, you’ll see the beautiful treetops of nearby High Park.
Besides getting the best of both worlds — mid-rise scale and beautiful views — what makes the building so special is its modern, lofty, and contemporary designed homes.
The exterior of the building was designed by architectsAlliance and features intricate brick screens that offer a perfect balance of light and privacy. The outcome is a gorgeous new perspective on light and shadows, making the units quite unlike any other in the city.
The interiors are by Commute Design, a local design studio operated by dynamic duo Hamid and Sara — natives to The Junction area. Here, they were truly able to capture the spirit and culture of the neighbourhood and what speaks to those who call Junction Point home.
Specializing in custom millwork, furniture, and lighting pieces, the design team ensured each Junction Point unit is unique and customized. That said, the units’ nine to ten foot tall concrete ceilings are a welcome feature that’s been incorporated into each home for an airy and lofty feel.
Each suite has been carefully constructed as a canvas for residents to enliven with their own personal style and touch. The brick screening, too, is a thoughtful detail that’s meant to reflect tranquil light into the space and change patterns throughout the day.
The sleek, modern kitchens by Trevisana bring Italian design and functionality to the room and are complemented by integrated appliances and custom millwork, designed by Commute, for a refined aesthetic.
The building was designed with the future in mind using sustainable technology and future-proof features, like an integrated smart home and building automation system.
This distinctive aesthetic continues into the building’s spacious lobby and elegant amenity spaces. Those currently working from home can look forward to a change of scenery within the property’s coworking lounge.
The stylish and sophisticated lounge is adorned with expansive sofas, benches, and picnic-style tables with ample natural lighting. Among the other amenities are a fully-equipped fitness studio and outdoor terrace.
