Grid Developments:
Smart. Urban. Beautiful.

When it comes to development, our mission is simple: build sensible urban homes that transform Toronto's up and coming communities and revitalize established neighbourhoods. That's what Grid Developments (part of the Aykler family of companies) is all about.

At Grid, we all live and work in the city, and everything we build reflects our love of Toronto's unique urban landscape. Each development is modern and sustainable, fresh and bold, with homes that are both beautiful and easy to live in. Every design decision we make is about providing residents with real value and pride of ownership.


We know potential when we see it.

We focus on infill locations in pockets of the city that are growing, building homes that fit seamlessly into their surrounding neighbourhoods. Our buildings are all low-rise to match the scale of the neighbouhood, with designs that encourage pedestrian traffic, create an approachable atmosphere, and foster community.

The Lofthouse on Logan Avenue

794 Gerrard Street East, Toronto



Pre-Construction

Where Riverdale meets Leslieville, the Lofthouse on Logan continues GRID Developments' passion for projects in Toronto’s east-end neighbourhoods. Located at the northeast corner of Gerrard Street East and Logan Avenue, just steps from Withrow Park, this thoughtfully designed main-streets building stands at the gateway to Riverdale. Sited in a rapidly changing district, the Lofthouse's six storeys gently boost density while adding new life to Gerrard Street's vital mix of residential and retail.

An intimate six-storey residence, the Lofthouse offers a select 58 gracious suites, which range from 655 to 1,145 square feet, including five exclusive penthouses with deep terraces offering unobstructed views. A soaring two-storey entrance lobby, dramatic brick façade, and large picture windows establish a new, more contemporary look for multi-unit residences in an area dominated by older low-rise structures. The Lofthouse on Logan's amenities focus on a holistic approach to living life well, with two outdoor spaces for residents to enjoy: a second-floor terrace for dining and cooking, and a rooftop outdoor yoga studio overlooking tree canopies to the north.

The suite interiors, designed by Andrew Pike, include such standard features as ten foot ceilings — complemented by floor-to-ceiling windows — as well as California modern open-concept floor plans, designer kitchens and baths, gas cooking and, most importantly, large bedrooms that can truly accommodate families and couples.

Sunday School Lofts

14 Dewhurst Boulevard, Toronto



Pre-Construction

ust steps from the corner of Danforth and Jones, right in the heart of the walkable Greektown neighbourhood, the intimate four-storey Sunday School Lofts residence includes 32 spacious and highly individualized units. Ranging from one-bedroom suites of 583 square feet to a rambling three-bedroom penthouse of 1,435 square feet, the Sunday School Lofts combine graceful modern living with the prestige of a heritage Georgian Classical exterior.

Originally built in 1925, this landmark building housed the Temple Baptist Church until the parish relocated and the building was sold in 2013. The building was acquired by GRID Developments after standing empty for a few years, when GRID recognized and embraced the incredible possibilities for converting this neighbourhood landmark into a truly special residence.

The Sunday School Lofts' interiors are designed with family-friendly urban living in mind. High ceilings, fully equipped modern kitchens, and gracious plans create an unmistakable sense of character; in 2017, the Sunday School Lofts were nominated for a BILD Award for Best Model Suite. Almost all suites come with outdoor spaces, including private patios, balconies, or large terraces overlooking Riverdale's quiet, leafy streets. Two-storey penthouses top the building off, opening up to beautiful rooftop terraces with amazing neighbourhood views.

East Village Leslieville

1321 Gerrard Street East, Toronto



Completed 2017

Located just east of Greenwood Avenue on Gerrard Street East, East Village Leslieville is reinventing the gritty retail environment that borders the India Bazaar. This modern interpretation of conventional townhomes immediately catches the eye: standing just four storeys tall, the striking building comprises 31 homes split almost evenly between ground-floor one-bedroom units, and three-storey, two-bedroom towns with rooftop terraces.

A common underground garage with 17 parking spaces, lockers and amenity space provides the base for the stacked townhomes, with each home having its own private front entrance. The protruding ground floor units give the development its distinctive modern aesthetic, and support the balconies of the upper three-storey townhomes — a feature rarely seen in a stacked townhouse built-form. Windows and sliding doors that stretch almost from floor to ceiling provide ample light.

In an unusual but understated approach, the site plan of these back-to-back stacked townhomes offers a unique symmetry. A common outdoor walkway separates two individual structures, with matching units fronting north and south. South-facing suites offer the one-bedroom units ground-floor garden patios, while the upper two-storey plans enjoy sweeping views to Lake Ontario from sizeable rooftop terraces. A green roof tops off the sensible and considerate design, providing a privacy setback for roof terraces facing both Gerrard Street and the Leslieville neighbours to the south.

Steam Plant Lofts

10 Wellesley Place, Toronto



Completed 2008

A stunning transformation of the former industrial steam plant serving the Wellesley and Princess Margaret Hospitals, this conversion project is located in the heart of downtown Toronto. Sited near Jarvis and Bloor Streets, Steam Plant Lofts faces quiet Wellesley Place to the east, and overlooks a new, pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood of low- and high-rise condominiums. Built lot-line to lot-line on three sides, this 31-unit, six-storey building integrates three faces of the former factory-style structure's existing red brick exterior. In what is likely a first for a Toronto development, the retention of the landmark eleven-storey steam stack provided bedrooms and dens for confident homeowners with an eye for unusual but thoughtful layouts.

In keeping with the desire to produce anything but a cookie-cutter condo, loft sizes range from 410-square-foot studios to various mid-sized units, ranging from 700 to 965 square feet, that comprise one bedroom plus a den, many of them spread across two storeys. Sizeable 1,100 square foot penthouses with private, south-facing 300-square-foot roof terraces top off the building, sharing the sixth level with a common rooftop herb and vegetable garden and barbecue space.

The Steam Plant Lofts incorporate features that make them highly sought-after examples of industrial-chic design, including exposed ten foot concrete ceilings, existing steel beams and large-format red clay brick. New industrial-styled windows with multiple transoms and mullions add to the heritage aesthetic and offer ample light, even in tight laneway exposures.

Earl Lofts

21 Earl Street, Toronto



Completed 2004

Earl Lofts is perhaps GRID Developments project that best embodies the term “infill” — so well that many have trouble finding it. Nestled behind GRID’s Manors on Earl, this soft loft development encompasses 58 units that face a quiet landscaped courtyard to the north, and revitalized lands from the Wellesley Central Hospital to the south. Located just southeast of Jarvis and Bloor Streets in downtown Toronto, Earl Lofts is walking distance from such attractions as the Rosedale Ravine, old Cabbagetown, and the transit and shopping hub of Yonge and Bloor.

Earl Lofts is made up primarily of two-storey one-bedroom and one-bedroom-plus-den loft condominiums, which mainly range in size from 596 to 758 square feet. A handful of street-fronting studios at the south end of the building, as well as a few larger two-storey lofts facing east, provide additional variety to the unit mix. Parking for 38 cars is provided in an underground garage accessible from quiet Wellesley Place, in the rear of the building.

Uniquely designed, Earl Lofts offers punchy 14-foot-tall windows in industrial-style red frames in each one of its two-storey units — a striking visual statement set on a backdrop of neutral stucco. Mid-sized units on the ground floor include terraces accessible from a private courtyard, while balconies punctuate the south elevation to provide additional outdoor space to every resident of this simple yet memorable building.
