A new project in the west-end’s thriving Junction neighbourhood, DUKE Condos is so integrated into the area that it even takes its name from its home intersection at Dundas Street West (DU) and Keele Street (KE).
It’s no secret that The Junction is one of the most dynamic parts of the city with a thriving commercial strip and a tight-knit community ethos.
Back in January, Main and Main (a First Capital Realty partner), TAS and Teeple Architects announced they were teaming up to redevelop the shuttered Alpine Hotel site at 1092-1118 Kingston Rd, east of Victoria Park Ave in Scarborough. Plans for the project are proceeding, still very much in the early stages, with an application having been recently submitted for site plan approval.
The eyesore that is the old Alpine Hotel will be replaced by a modern mid-rise condominium, on the north side of Kingston Road between Victoria Park Ave. and Blantyre Ave. It will contain 150 – 170 condo units, according to Mazyar Mortazavi principal of the development firm TAS.
Two-hundred guests from the arts and cultural, architecture and development communities came together for an intimate & inspiring evening with Toronto’s cultural luminaries at Artscape Salon: Picnic in the Park, an annual fundraising event in support of the Artscape Foundation.
The vision and leadership of Mazyar Mortazavi has led to efforts that bring focus to both the neighbourhoods that TAS builds in and the communities that live within them.
As a member of ELN, Mazyar is contributing to Toronto Community Housing’s strategic plan and helping identify key actions for civic leaders to take in addressing the Toronto region’s affordable housing crisis.
