Revitalization in Toronto comes in different shapes, sizes & styles across different neighborhoods. It is of utmost importance to understand the community and its residents, create an attractive walkable neighborhood, and build equity in the area and diversify the local economy. This is just a small list of themes and initiatives that condominium and real estate developers must take, working alongside cities in an effort to create more livable communities for condo residents in downtown Toronto.
“It was really important for it to have a real sense of presence, place and a sense of arrival. We didn’t go for the typical glass building which has become a bit too prevalent in the city as far as I’m concerned,” says David Hirsch, CEO of Brandy Lane Homes. Hirsh immediately recognized the importance to develop a strong relationship between the intimate nine-storey build and the lush park adjacent to it for this new condo project in Toronto.
Robertson Davies Park – a landscape to honor one of Canada’s contributors to world literature
Designed by Daniel Cowling of SMV Architects, The Davies condo project in Toronto by Brandy Lane Homes will be an architecturally iconic condominium development to fit elegantly into the established neighbourhood near the exclusive Yorkville area. Robertson Davies Park is named after Robertson Davies, the internationally known Canadian author of Fifth Business, who lived for 15 years around the corner of Avenue Road and Cottingham Street. Mr. Davies was educated at Upper Canada College nearby before serving as founding master of Massey College at the University of Toronto and was remembered in a ceremony when the park was unveiled in 2007.
