  • Description BT-Towns is a residential development comprised of both stacked townhomes and apartment style dwellings. The project establishes a medium scale, diminishing the difference in scale between the low-rise single family homes and the high-rise apartments of the area.


Toronto’s post-war building boom resulted in 1,925 high rise apartment towers spread thorughout the city's existing residential fabric. As with many neighbourhood’s in the city, this left Bridletowne Circle with a “Missing Middle” – a gap between detached single houses and high-rise apartments with no transition zone in between. BT-Towns provides an innovative way of answering this challenge while adhering to Toronto’s official plan and Ontario’s intensification objectives.

Located on the site of a former one-storey nine-unit commercial strip-plaza, this project proposes an apartment building and stacked townhouse blocks containing 60 residential units. In three distinct blocks, 22 grade related units are accommodated with 8 walk-up dwellings and 30 residential apartments served by a common corridor. All units have a unique combination of townhouses and apartment typologies allowing for a range of sizes, configurations and affordability.

The project’s 4 storey building height is an ideal physical transition of scale and density between the high-rise towers located inside the circle and the 2 storey residential neighbourhood which surrounds it. Our design and our client’s vision will provide quality family-oriented housing choices to allow this urban node to mature into a unique, vibrant and vital neighbourhood.
