As reported on, as one of Toronto’s hippest neighbourhoods, The Junction has become home to and a wave of residential developments, all of which aim to capitalize on the trendy cultural node’s growing land values. Submitted to the City of Toronto last week, the area’s latest proposal looks to to redevelop an existing Green P-operated surface parking lot an an adjacent surface lot for JM Auto Sales, located at 406 Keele Street, just north of Dundas.

The new project from Block Developments features architecture by RAW Design, combining cubist-inspired massing with a materiality that references the red brick seen on many of the heritage structures that make up the neighbourhood. With a proposed height of 16.8 metres, the 4,545.52 m² boutique condominium development will rise four storeys, plus a mezzanine level that includes a mechanical penthouse and private amenity terraces.

406 Keele Street is proposing a total of just 30 condominium units, coming in a mix of 2 one-bedroom (6%), 12 two-bedroom (40%), 11 three-bedroom (37%), and 5 live-work units (17%), with an overall average unit size of approximately 151.52 m². The five live-work units will be situated on the development’s ground floor, fronting onto Keele Street. While the project is being proposed as otherwise entirely residential, the inclusion of these live-work spaces has the potential to enrich the at-grade conditions on Keele with a limited commercial/retail presence. Other units will be accessed via two entrances along Vine Avenue.
