Named in honour of the bygone Canadian aerospace company that built the famed Avro Arrow, the BBB Architects designed project pays homage to nearby Downsview Park's former use as a military air base. To replace a former surface parking lot, the redevelopment will introduce 180 condominium and townhouse units to the subject site, a couple minutes walk north of the (soon to be renamed 'Sheppard West') subway station.
Avro will offer its residents a wide range of amenities, these spaces include a lobby with concierge service, a multi-purpose lounge/party room, a fitness centre, and a 14th floor indoor lounge. A rendering of the lobby space, included below, reveals a striking hangar-like space with high ceilings, playful lighting, and a minimalist colour palette.
Landscaped outdoor spaces including an outdoor patio with grilling and dining areas, and a rooftop amenity offering outdoor cabanas, seating, and views of the surrounding city. In addition, a dog spa with an outdoor dog run will be a convenient amenity for dog owners residing within the building.
