A project of Alterra Group and Zinc Developments, the exclusive 18-unit building was designed by Toronto’s Quadrangle Architects, with interiors by Chapman Design Group Ltd. and landscaping by Ronald Holbrook and Associates Landscape Architects.

At the north end of the street, on the corner of Davenport Road, foundation drilling and preliminary excavation work is underway on 133 Hazelton Residences. A project of Toronto’s Mizrahi Khalili Developments, the 9-storey building will contain 35 spacious condominium suites and three townhouse units. Designed by Page + Steele IBI Group Architects, the complex will feature interiors by Brian Gluckstein of Gluckstein Design.

My March 26 2011 post provides detailed information about the 36Hazelton project, as well as numerous photos of its St. Basil’s School site and the surrounding neighbourhood.

My August 16 2011 post offers information about the 133 Hazelton Residences project, and includes photos of its location as well as some additional information and photos of 36Hazelton.

 

Exclusive multi-million-dollar suites still available

A few suites starting at prices well over $1-million are still available in both buildings. According to the floorplans page on the 36Hazelton website, three “one of a kind” units remain: a 2,089-square-foot condo suite; a 4,154-square-foot townhome; and a 4,693-square-foot penthouse. (Last summer, the local and international media reported that Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg had purchased the $12-million, 4,600-square-foot penthouse. The fact that the palatial top-floor suite is still available suggests that either those reports weren’t accurate in the first place, or that Wahlberg changed his mind about the purchase.)

Meanwhile, the 133 Hazelton Residences website shows availability for four suites: an 899-square-foot 1-bedroom; a 1,320-square-foot 2-bedroom; a 1,476-square-foot 2-bedroom; and a 2,324-square-foot 3-bedroom. All three townhouses have been sold.

Below are some photos from the past several days showing construction activity at both luxury condo locations, along with a few more building renderings that appear on the project websites.
