1408 - 1420 Bayview
Location: Leaside, Toronto, Canada
Type: Residential Condo Development
Size: 8 Floors, 68,000 Square Feet of Gross Floor Area, 65 Units
Gairloch Developments is excited to introduce 1408 - 1420 Bayview Ave. to the Leaside & Davisville Village neighbourhoods. The proposed development is an 8-storey condo featuring approximately 60 units and 1st floor retail fronting Bayview.
Gairloch hopes to develop a building that caters to both renters and owners, as it feels that this will best respond to the needs of the neighbourhood. Initial plans provide for a range of unit sizes, from one bedroom to three bedrooms, which should work to enhance the range of existing housing options in the neighbourhood.
The properties are currently home to residential uses in duplex and triplex dwelling structures. The new development will provide a wide range of ownership options while offering neighbourhood residents an opportunity to age in place or begin a family in a family-friendly neighbourhood.
