KENSINGTON MARKET REDEVELOPMENT

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.

THEMES

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

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.
