near Dundas Street West & Spadina Avenue
A new rental building in Kensington Market

The current proposal is for a 5-storey, student-focused residential rental building with 77 units and ground-floor retail space. The building provides a 3-storey base that complements the 2-3 storey buildings on St. Andrew Street and Kensington Avenue, and steps back from the base on the 4th and 5th floors. The building will feature a mix of unit sizes, with approximately 80% studios and 1-bedroom units and 20% 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom units to accommodate a variety of residents, including students and families. The design respects Kensington’s unique mixed-use character and incorporates enhancements to the public realm to contribute to the active streetscape that distinguishes this neighborhood.


A new, student-focused rental development in one of Toronto’s most vibrant neighbourhoods.



The City of Toronto will hold their Community Consultation Meeting for the proposal on March 31, 2020. Please check back for location and time.


We have had the chance to meet with local stakeholders, including Friends of Kensington Market, Kensington Market Action Committee, Kensington Residents Association, Kensington Market BIA, and the Church of Saint Stephen-in-the- Fields, where we were able to hear their initial thoughts on the proposal. We look forward to continuing conversations with community members, City Staff, and Councillor Layton as we refine the proposal. Check back for upcoming consultation opportunities and project milestones.


Here you will find all materials submitted to the City as a part of our application.
We will also provide materials presented at community consultations.
