In the news: 2021 applications spark media attention

Plaza Partners recently announced applications for several new developments across the GTA. Here’s a look at what local and industry media have been saying about the future properties.
208 Bloor Street

“The luxurious looking building seems like a mix out of something you’d find in Las Vegas or New York City’s Fifth Avenue. Walking the line between elegant and extra, it will be interesting to see just how much this city continues to change as it begins to open up again.”

“The new high-rise intends to follow the existing development patterns along Bloor Street West by covering the full width of the site. Various architectural setbacks are included throughout the tower to make room for recessed balconies located behind the building’s decorative architectural feature.“

“208 Bloor West’s southern elevation is shaped as two full and two half bays that project southwards, with a copper coloured filagree lattice giving texture and sheen to what will presumably be a luxury product.”

“The proposed development’s distinctive architectural approach and high-quality materials will create visual interest and reinforce the unique character of this section of Bloor Street West, to further transform the site and contribute to the ongoing evolution of one of Toronto’s most iconic streets.”

25 Imperial Street

“Designed by BDP Quadrangle, the proposed building would house 144 units, broken down by 14 live-work suites, 46 one-bedroom, 47 one-bedroom-plus-den, 22 two-bedroom, and 15 three-bedroom units.”

“The live-work units are located on the second and third floors, ranging in sizes between 57 m² (608 ft²) and 84 m² (908 ft²). Also situated on the second-floor are amenities that cater to those who work from home, including a 157 m² business centre and a 49 m² meeting room.”

401 Dundas Street East

“The building seeks to frame and define the street edge, providing a comfortable public realm and supporting the proposed retail spaces. The second level overhang along the Dundas Street and Milan Street frontages would provide at-grade weather protection for pedestrians and retail patrons.”

11 Pleasant Boulevard

“Though the project is in its early stages, it’s already set to have amenities such as a dog wash room, as well as nearly 5,000 square feet of total indoor and outdoor amenity space, including a segment of the top floor — potentially a gym or party room with the best views in the place.”

6035 Bathurst Street

“A total of 300 m² of residential indoor amenity space is proposed on the ground floor, contiguous to outdoor amenity, and another 181 m² is provided on the 2nd level (with 85 m² of outdoor amenity). Four levels of underground parking are proposed with spaces for 150 vehicles, and 160 bicycles.”

374-388 Dupont Street

“Among notable design features, Dupont Street is met by curvilinear forms on the first level, including a projecting canopy that would shelter retail patrons and residents. A 340 m² POPS (Privately-Owned Publicly accessible Space) formed by the building’s generous setback distance from Dupont provides a landscaped place to sit and interact with others, and with a public art piece to be chosen for the spot indicated.”
