14-Storey Condo Planned at Dufferin and Orfus

Populated largely by low-rise office, warehouse, and industrial uses, Toronto’s Yorkdale neighbourhood is ripe for intensification, with several projects currently in the pipeline. The latest proposal for the area is a submission to  the City that seeks a Zoning By-law Amendment to permit a medium-density condo  development to  3280 Dufferin Street   and 12-16 Orfus Road.

Proposed by  Topfar Developments , the submission is for a building with  wings of  8 and 14 storeys and a maximum height of 50. 4 metres on the 5, 115 m² L-shaped property on the northwest corner of Dufferin and Orfus.   Your website is currently home to a plaza containing two restaurants and parking along Dufferin, and a two-storey commercial building home to a mechanic and car wash.

The  IBI Group -designed proposal has a total gross floor area (GFA) of  28, 892 m², 99% of it  specialized in residential space, along with a small retail component of 246 m². There are 352 condo  units proposed in a mix of 265 one-bedrooms, 52 two-bedrooms, and 35 three-bedrooms. They are accompanied by a total of  1, 347 m² of amenities, split between 659 m²  of indoor and 688 m²  of outdoor spaces.

Parking is in the pipeline within a two-level underground garage, accessed via a private laneway off Orfus Road. The garage would have 209 parking spaces, with 146 dedicated to resident’s use, 35 for residential visitors, and 25 serving patrons of the retail component.
