On Dupont west of Lansdowne in Toronto’s Junction Triangle neighbourhood, construction has passed an important milestone for a new mixed-use project from developers TAS and BentallGreenOak, along with the Toronto Public Library.
Just over two years after TAS, BentallGreenOak, and the Toronto Public Library celebrated a ground breaking for a new mixed-use development at 299 Campbell Avenue, construction is making headway on the 14-storey rental apartment, retail, and library complex on Dupont west of Lansdowne in The Junction Triangle.

What if a new development could be weird? That’s the promise of a proposed project at 888 Dupont St. in Toronto. Imagine a 13-storey tower with a restaurant on the roof. Then add shops on the first floor – and in the basement. In between, add 99 live-work apartments, 13 of them affordable rentals. And tack a “vertical farm” to the back of the tower.
