DUKE is an engaging 8 storey building, located in the Junction, at Dundas and Keele.
Imagined by TAS, and created by Quadrangle Architects, DUKE is a bold gesture that brings a modern sensibility to the retro neighbourhood, but in a way that both respects and complements the existing streetscape.
The building’s articulated façade plays with geometric patterns. Cantilevered living spaces carve out intimate balconies and terraces that meet expansive glazed windows. A double-height retail space on the main floor animates Dundas West with convenient neighbourhood retail.
On the north side, DUKE stands tall, projecting a confident presence on the vibrant street. On the south side, sun-filled terraces gradually step down, creating a softer façade with unobstructed views of the Junction neighbourhood. And up top, terraces wrap around single and two-storey penthouse suites, offering a phenomenal perspective of the city.
LIVING IN JUNCTION TRIANGLE
A local residents group that organized under the name Fuzzy Boundaries initiated a year long campaign encouraging residents to put forward and debate potential names for their neighbourhood. In the end more than 200 names were suggested and 674 votes were cast. The winning name announced in March 2010 is Junction Triangle. Ironically this was the first name coined for this neighbourhood back in the 1970s. The name had largely fallen out of use, but now promises to be revived.
This development is located in park heaven, with 13 parks and a long list of recreation facilities within a 15 min walk.
