HURON STREET REDEVELOPMENT
near Bloor Street West & Spadina Avenue
This proposal is for a 4-storey residential building, that will be rental in tenure, located at 409 Huron Street. Currently, this address is home to 40 rental units that will be incorporated into the new design, featuring studio, 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, and 3-bedroom units for a total of 86 units. The design will incorporate the existing heritage home to create an architecturally sensitive blend of old and new.
The design of the proposed building supports the City’s heritage goals and will provide a juxtaposition of old and new. The aesthetic will create a
visually engaging streetscape, supporting an enhanced public realm on Huron Street.
Providing a new residential building for the area in a unique built form as well as continuing and improving the current buildings contribution of rental housing units in the neighbourhood.
This site is located within walking distance to two major subway lines as well as being served by the recently implemented Bloor Street bike lanes. It is also situated in the incredibly pedestrian-friendly University of Toronto St. George Downtown Campus. This location allows for ease of access and supports alternative modes of transportation for potential residents.
As of Friday, May 10, 2019, an application for the redevelopment of 409 Huron Street was submitted to the City of Toronto. We have also had discussions with the Ward Councillor and local residents’ association regarding the proposal, and will continue these discussions throughout the planning applications process. We look forward to engaging with current tenants and other interested members of the public about our site on Huron Street.

As we move forward with our planning application submission, we will provide all materials submitted to the City as a part of this application. We will also provide materials presented at community consultations.
