Lifetime’s proposal for this space involves a 12-storey, mixed-use building with over 17,000 square-feet of retail at grade. Most of the site will be occupied by a four-storey podium, while the 8-storey mid-rise portion will feature a series of cantilevers, setbacks and terraces, creating architectural intrigue and contributing significantly to the area’s regeneration.
The location of these new condos is perfect for anyone looking to be involved with the action of Downtown Toronto without having to live in all of the hustle and bustle that is involved with it. There are still plenty of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Take a short ride on public transit and you will have many more opportunities downtown. Surrounding this new building is the University of Toronto – St. George Campus, many restaurants, and six beautiful parks. Davenport-Wychwood neighbourhood with a 88/100 walk score and a 94/100 transit score. 500 Dupont Street Condos is designed by CORE Architects.
The building’s ground floor will house a residential lobby, accessible off a private sidewalk on the site’s west side, bicycle storage and three separate retail spaces, including The Beer Store, which currently occupies the site.
The second floor of 500 Dupont Street will feature 3,164 square feet of indoor amenity space, connecting seamlessly to 4,327 square feet of outdoor amenity space. The building will be designed so levels two through four are U-shaped, overlooking an interior courtyard, while all levels up to the fifth will be cantilevered with inset balconies, providing covered pedestrian space at grade.
The unit mix at 500 Dupont Street calls for 119 one-bedroom and one-bedroom-plus-den layouts, 39 two-bedroom and two-bedroom-plus-den and 18 three-bedroom layouts, for a total of 176 residential units. 127 parking spaces and 228 bicycle spaces are proposed in two levels of underground parking.
The Midtown area isn’t seeing the hyper-intensification and expanse of glass skyscrapers we’ve been seeing in some neighbourhoods, but it has steadily been undergoing a regeneration in its own way. You’re much more likely to see thoughtful and contemporary boutique buildings along this stretch, many of which incorporate retail or high-end office space. If you want to invest in something a little different than your average high-rise, while still being in a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood popular with a wide variety of residents, this is a great option.
The immediate area around 500 Dupont Street has access to a number of public transit options, including several bus routes and is a ten-minute walk from both Bathurst Station – which connects to the subway’s Line 2 – and Dupont Station – which connects to Line 1.
You’re likely to find an array of eclectic shops, cafes, services and supermarkets along this stretch, making it a great neighbourhood for convenience. It’s also a short walk to both George Brown College and the University of Toronto.
Many residents here love the proximity to Yorkville, which is a short subway ride or stroll away. Yorkville’s upscale dining, shopping and art galleries are within reach yet homes in this part of Midtown are not nearly as pricey.
It’s also a popular neighbourhood for families, with plenty of access to schools, libraries, community facilities and parks, including the well-known Christie Pitts. A lush network of ravines runs through much of Midtown, creating an enviable oasis for dog walkers, joggers, or those craving a momentary escape from the city.
We’ve seen a handful of luxury boutique condominiums proposed for the surrounding area, along with some upscale townhomes. Combined with developments like this one, both artful and practical, we’re expecting somewhat of a renaissance along the stretch.
Located in mid town Toronto, this new development features a very modern design. With 9 floors, 146 suites, and a superb location, the Dupont Street Condos are sure to draw in lots of excitement. This building is designed to fit the modern style of surrounding buildings. Using both horizontal and vertical design elements, the architects know how to draw in attention using beautiful contrasts.
This boutique building will feature the upmost luxury finishes and features. The building and many suites within, will boast grand terraces with exceptional views of the beautiful areas around.
