Built by the Daniels Construction Management Corporation, Block 20 is part of the landmark Regent Park Revitalization. This high-profile mixed-use project has been built for the Toronto Community Housing Corporation (TCHC). The project features at-grade retail units, The TorontoBirthing Centre, and affordable residential rental suites in both the upper levels and townhouses.
The mid-rise building is composed of 9 stories of residential suites atop a single-storey podium. The ground level is planning to respond to the Regent Park Masterplan. The residential lobby fronts onto Sackville Street, across from the new Paintbox Bistro, with the primary retail frontages facing Dundas Street, the main artery through the new Regent Park Neighbourhood while two-storey three-bedroom townhouses front onto the quiet Bartholomew Street.
The upper residential floors are arranged in an open-ended courtyard surrounding a dynamic outdoor garden that is overlooked by residential suites. Accessible by residents from the second floor elevator lobby, this space provides a passive garden that is flooded with light. Communal laundry facilities located in the inside corners of the plan face onto this space, emphasizing its community nature. Corridors leading from the elevators also open onto the courtyard, flooding the interior space with light and views. Amenity spaces with active outdoor roof terraces are located on the topmost floor and offer residents panoramic views of the Downtown Toronto skyline.
