Mixed Use

[SOLD] 455 Dovercourt Road

Site Introduction

This adaptive re-use project has turned an 1958 City building historically used for City services into an intimate mixed use development of 12 townhomes and two floors of office in the City’s west end.

In order to set the vision, Build Toronto looked for a developer that was committed to re-purposing the existing building. We also created an incentive to incorporate office space into the residential concept, as we thought this would add to the neighbourhood. We worked closely with the local Councillor and when we selected Curated Properties as the developer, we supported them through the zoning.
