Dunpar Homes’ first ever rental community, The Ossington, is move-in ready. What’s unique about the project is the housing form – 54 luxury townhomes of 1500 to 1900 sf.

Located in the trendy dining hub of the city’s west end, this amenity-rich building will introduce 54 rental homes into one of the tightest rental markets in recent history. With vacancy rates of both purpose built and condo rental at historic lows, The Ossington will help meet rental needs in Toronto’s downtown core, especially for families who are increasingly moving in from the suburbs.

Each 3-BR townhome comes with luxury features such as 10-foot ceilings on the main floor, gas fireplace with mantel, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, security system, gas outlet on the deck and in the kitchen, stainless appliances, granite counters, centre islands, custom cabinetry, potlights and oak staircases, spacious master ensuite with double sinks and custom cabinetry, soaker tub, glass shower and ceramic tile.

Exteriors bear the same hallmarks of all Dunpar Homes – solid clay brick construction in a Georgian style design, with natural Indiana limestone features, and professionally landscaped planter boxes. Inside, the main floor ten foot ceilings provide a great volume of space and the nine foot ceilings on the loft floor are a true touch of luxury. In addition, the floorplans are designed for maximum flow.

Located minutes from the subway, the project is well situated for getting anywhere in the city. With several new local and international retailers, some of the city’s top restaurants and clubs, and good local shopping, this strip of Ossington Ave is enjoying a renaissance and is a much sought after location for artists, designers, and professionals of all sorts.

The resulting surge in house prices has led to increased need for rental, especially good quality units. It’s a trend experienced by virtually every major city — New York, Paris, London, Hong Kong – rent downtown and own vacation property outside the city. There are also plenty of people who prefer the carefree lifestyle that rental gives with onsite property management, and predictable monthly costs.

Making the switch from building condos to purpose-built rental requires specialized construction knowledge and property management expertise. It’s a good fit for Dunpar Homes which has a sterling 30+ year record for quality building, in a townhome format, and always on infill land to ensure good access to local amenities.

For renters, we provide a quality, professional property management service. Our motto – better by design – says it all.”
