Garrison Point and Novus Apartments transform Toronto’s Ordnance Triangle

A 7.75-acre parcel of land once occupied by vacant industrial and warehouse space is now in the midst of a major transformation. Known as the Ordnance Triangle for the street that runs through it, and its location between two rail lines that converge towards the downtown core, the area will soon be home to thousands of new residents.

Two large developments are currently under construction including Garrison Point Condominiums on the northeastern portion and Novus Apartments on the south. Both projects consist of two high-rise towers, while a fifth tower is proposed for the northwestern corner of Ordnance Street and Strachan Avenue.

Designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects, the towers of Garrison Point each topped off last fall and now stand 29- and 35-storeys above the Ordnance Triangle, creating a new skyline in Toronto’s west end. The tower crane of the shorter south building has already been removed while the crane on the north building is expected to be dismantled in the coming months. Outside, window wall installation is mostly complete as crews continue to install the project’s distinctive white exterior cladding and balcony glass.
