This considerate project was designed around a serene courtyard with a spa concept in mind. Going beyond the generic residential offerings available in the area at the time, we created a unique community that seamlessly integrated apartments, lofts and townhouses together in one project. Lushly landscaped, immaculately finished and designed to offer light, warmth and a peaceful atmosphere, DIA helped expand and improve condominium living in North York.
Literally named for its location at Dundas Street West (DU) and Keele Street (KE), we are tremendously proud of this project, which brings contemporary design to a historic and dynamic neighbourhood. A strong sense of community radiates from every corner, every shop, and every restaurant in the Junction, and DUKE was thoughtfully designed to complement this unique local context.
Our approach was guided by a commitment to quality over quantity and design in every detail. The modern mid-rise building’s articulated brick façade seamlessly weaves into the local neighborhood fabric and its expansive south-facing terraces offer breathtaking unobstructed views. A number of sustainability features were integrated into the design including: energy recovery ventilators and energy efficient appliances; harvest planters, water efficient landscaping and a green roof; programmable thermostats and sensor-managed lighting in common spaces.

Located a short walk from the beach, Kingston & Co. stands on the site of the former Alpine Hotel – a cherished landmark for almost 75 years that closed its doors in 2011.

Located in downtown Toronto’s vibrant Entertainment District, M5V was a groundbreaking project in a few ways.
First off, we doubled down on environmental sustainability and achieved LEED Gold Certification. In fact, M5V was the first Toronto condo project to do so, and that’s something we are tremendously proud of.
Second, recognizing that everyone has unique needs, priorities, and preferences, we made M5V suites highly flexible and bespoke. We facilitated an extensive people-centered customization process for our purchasers, giving residents the opportunity to really make their home their own and ultimately improve their quality of life day-to-day.
Finally, a robust engaging and open amenity program features indoor and outdoor social and dining areas, a generous sundeck, meeting rooms, and a fitness studio.
- 257,000 square feet over 34 storeys
- Approximately 94% residential and 6% commercial
- 282 new homes including a mix of studios, one, two, and three bedroom condos
When we first proposed ZED, King West was gritty and industrial. As early players in the neighbourhood’s revitalization, we made a concerted effort to raise the bar on both design and livability standards in what would become the heart of downtown Toronto’s condo boom. Today, King West is one of the liveliest neighbourhoods in the city – with shops, restaurants, bars, and theatres animating the streets.
ZED went above and beyond typical condominium offerings of the time, and the result is a project that features airy, light-infused interiors and crisp, modern exteriors that seamlessly integrate into the local urban fabric.
