Condo Project Summary
The proposed redevelopment of the Galleria Mall at 1245 Dupont Street will call for new public and private streets, gathering spaces, and a diverse mix of residential, retail, office, civic and recreational facilities which will comprehensively transform the current site into a high-density community.
"Galleria On The Park Condos, also known as Block 5, will sit at the northwest corner of Dupont Street and Emerson Avenue in Toronto. This collection of residential buildings will account for 2,696 condominium units proposed for the new and improved site.
The overall project coined, "Galleria On The Park Master-Planned Community" aspires to, solidify the site’s role as a community hub, create a space with a variety of mixed spaces, deliver housing options, focus on prioritizing active transportation, enhance local and regional transit, reflect the site’s industrial legacy and lastly promote design excellence. The future of this new neighbourhood is bright as it will soon become its own city within a city.
Galleria On The Park is a joint venture between Freed Developments and ELAD Canada while the architectural mastermind behind the project is Hariri Pontarini Architects. Expect a high quality of public and private amenity spaces provided for all units while the base of the building will either be non-residential or residential podiums. In response to their location, the total height or residential podiums will be between 7 and 10 storeys along Dupont and 2 and 8 storeys along Dufferin.
Terraced buildings will boast mid-rise built form elements that will frame views onto parks and key open spaces, assists in achieving a transition between the base, podium and towers, and deliver a large assortment of outdoor amenity spaces. Lastly, a number of taller tower elements will range from 18 to 35 storeys in height. Podium and terraces elements preserve a comfortable human scale at grade.
Sustainability is a key factor in the success of this master-planned community. The revised proposal has proposed thoughtfully incorporated places for work, life, recreation and relaxation, all accessible by foot, car, bike and public transit.
