500 Dupont St, Toronto, ON M6G 1Y7, Canada
Introducing Oscar Residences, an intimate boutique building on Dupont St in the Annex. Discover bold design, sophisticated interiors, and a slate of A-list amenities that balance comfort and drama to stunning effect. Set the scene for vibrant living in Toronto’s most eclectic neighbourhood.
If you want to invest in something a little different than your average high-rise, while still being in a vibrant, pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood popular with a wide variety of residents, this is a great option.
Oscar Residences is new 9-storey mixed-use condominium development located at 500 Dupont St, on the north side of Dupont Street, just west of Bathurst.
Lifetime’s proposal for this space involves a building with a total of 161 units and over 17,000 square-feet of retail at grade.
Oscar Residences ground floor will house a residential lobby, accessible off a private sidewalk on the site’s west side, bicycle storage and three separate retail spaces, including The Beer Store, which currently occupies the site.
The second floor of this new building will feature 3,164 square feet of indoor amenity space, connecting seamlessly to 4,327 square feet of outdoor amenity space. The building will be designed so levels two through four are U-shaped, overlooking an interior courtyard, while all levels up to the fifth will be cantilevered with inset balconies, providing covered pedestrian space at grade.
The unit mix at Oscar Residences calls for one-bedroom and one-bedroom-plus-den layouts, two-bedroom and two-bedroom-plus-den and three-bedroom layouts, for a total of 161 residential units. 127 parking spaces and 228 bicycle spaces are proposed in two levels of underground parking.
The immediate area around this project has access to a number of public transit options, including several bus routes and is a ten-minute walk from both Bathurst Station – which connects to the subway’s Line 2 – and Dupont Station – which connects to Line 1.
You’re likely to find an array of eclectic shops, cafes, services and supermarkets along this stretch, making it a great neighbourhood for convenience. It’s also a short walk to both George Brown College and the University of Toronto.
Many residents here love the proximity to Yorkville, which is a short subway ride or stroll away. Yorkville’s upscale dining, shopping and art galleries are within reach yet homes in this part of Midtown are not nearly as pricey.
It’s also a popular neighbourhood for families, with plenty of access to schools, libraries, community facilities and parks, including the well-known Christie Pitts. A lush network of ravines runs through much of Midtown, creating an enviable oasis for dog walkers, joggers, or those craving a momentary escape from the city.
