The Dupont Study Area
Known for its employment area and rail road tracks, the City of Toronto wants to drastically improve Dupont Street to bring it to its full potential. Developers have taken notice.
The area north of Dupont from Ossington Ave to Kendal Avenue was under review as of November 2012 and condos are finally announcing their debut.
With the astonishing growth of Toronto, Dupont Street brings an exciting opportunity for development. There are currently 6 pre-construction condos & townhome developments coming to the Dupont Regeneration area including 2 from Tridel alone.
The City of Toronto is planning to transform the Dupont Rail Corridor area into a space that is friendly and stimulating. The environment will be improved for pedestrians as well as creating more green spaces and parks for a family friendly focus. Their vision is focused on catering to the community and creating a place where people can stroll down Dupont Street enjoying the scenery and even a warm summer’s night on a restaurant patio.
A more breathable space starts with park improvements and one of the community initiatives that they are also going to contribute to is the Park People’s Green Line Park. Green Line is a 5km linear park and trail in the Hydro corridor north of the rail corridor. This will be a wonderful contribution to The Annex and Casa Loma neighbourhood to really encourage people to explore their community.
Dupont Condo Guidelines
New developments need to match the character and culture that the City of Toronto is planning to embellish. The Dupont condos are under strict guidance of being midrise condos to blend well with the current aesthetic of the surrounding houses with a max height of approximately 8 storeys. Condos will need to be setback 30 metres from the rail corridor.
