455 Dovercourt condos

New in Toronto real estate: 455 Dovercourt condos

455 Dovercourt bills itself as townhomes, but it's probably more accurate to think of the development as a small condo. All the units are, after all, lodged in the same building. About that, this is one strange looking, top-heaving structure that ever so slightly reminds me of the old Sears building at 222 Jarvis. Let's not say that's a bad thing, as it's impossible to complain about Toronto's anonymous glass condos and to criticize unique designs in one breath. Besides, the building is an adaptive reuse project, which has retained the bottom portion of the previous building on the site.

Composed of 12 units, this development is actually quite appropriate for the neighbourhood, given its proximity to College St. and the massive apartment buildings that exist just north on Dovercourt. The number of bedrooms per unit has yet to be announced, but with sizes that range from 1,000 to 1,500 square feet, you can count on some two-bedroom options.

THE VERDICT

This is a step above your tower-based condo, with a starting price to match. But $650K to live in this area is actually quite attractive, particularly for those who don't need three bedrooms to house a budding family. The rooftop patios are simply gorgeous, and the track record of the developer is strong (see the Laneway House project). While the building looks a bit strange, its scale is appropriate to the neighbourhood and the early designs look promising. Let's be honest, Toronto could use more small-scale condos like this in densely populated areas.
