Bellwoods House, located at 111 Strachan Ave is a mid-rise infill development that will replace mechanic shops and a small bar with 322 new homes, while preserving a beautiful second empire heritage building. Bellwoods House is located between two future higher order transit stations, and steps to some of the largest green spaces in downtown Toronto, including the beloved Trinity Bellwoods Park. The design aims to preserve the residential character of Strachan Ave with townhouses at grade, but also seeks to activate the laneway townhouses wrapping the rear of the building. The rehabilitated heritage building and the townhouse units proposed along Strachan Avenue will help to animate the streetscape, while the architecture provides a seamless transition from the King Street West corridor toward Trinity Bellwoods Park. The building is aims to be reverential to the existing character of the neighbourhood, bringing high quality materials and a high attention to detail to the street along with touches that are both residential and industrial in nature, which is a reflection of the existing uses in the area.
