There's another new loft project in town...
It seems that preparations are being made on Carlaw Avenue. "Showcase Lofts", promising refined living @ Carlaw & Colgate Avenue.
I did some digging... they're calling for a 230 unit, 7 story building proposed by Aragon Properties.
According to Aragon, some of the standard finishes will include; 9ft ceilings, engineered hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops and "reclaimed brick" interior feature walls in all units.
If anyone is interested in launch dates and floor plans... I'd be happy to keep to keep you in the loop.

This looks like a co-op building.
The land may actually have been cleaned up in the blitz of the late 80's, but no guarantees. We live across the street from the old Colgate plant and our soil was dead when we moved in. Not even weeds would grow! We have added tons of soil and manure but I still wouldn't grow root vegetables.
Making sure everyone is aware of this notice sent by Paula Fletcher yesterday:
Community Information Open House
To residents of the Carlaw and Dundas area:
In 2002 the Official Plan Ammendment and Site Plan for the former Colgate factory lands were approved. The developer built the townhomes at Natalie Place and Logan and conveyed the land for building John Chang Park.
64 Colgate was approved for development but it was never built.
The developer is proceeding with the original approvals from 2002. This rezoning approval took place long before many of you moved into the neighborhood and preceded my election as your Councillor in 2003.
Of course many people have questions about the style and nature of the development.
I have asked the planning department and the developer to attend a community information open house where you can become familiar with the plans and ask any related questions you may have.
Thursday June 16th
7:00 – 9:00 PM
Morse Street Junior Public School-Library
180 Carlaw Ave (at Queen)
Our local planner, Denise Graham, can also answer any questions and she can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
For easy access, I have also posted the rezoning approval on my website at www.paulafletcher.ca
I look forward to seeing you on June 16th.
Interesting... I hope lots of people attend.
Thanks for this!
I agree Simon, I think George could really add his insight. Hopfully he joins.
If the developer is able to make the case that the finished product will not look like a suburban storage rental facility, then at least part of my concerns will be addressed. Fingers crossed.
The problems with renderings and models, is that they differ, and they're embellished. In any case, I emailed the developer, filed my "concern" with what I did see, and they returned with a canned email indicating that great feedback is what allows them to become better.
I have attached the pictures that I have. It looks like something the Jefferson's would pass by.
