Monthly Media Roundup: September Edition
Thirty days has September—and we can’t believe how quickly those days flew by! Before we break out the wools and start thinking about Halloween costumes, let’s take a moment to reflect on everything that happened in September:
Inside Toronto covered the second last Toronto Flower Market of the season, nodding towards Streetcar’s partnership with this colourful community initiative. We hope everyone got a chance to attend and fill their homes with fragrant bouquets. The final Toronto Flower Market of the season takes place Saturday, October 10th (Thanksgiving weekend). See you there!
Urban Toronto featured a post on Streetcar’s progress at Queen and Gladstone, with a specific focus on The Carnaby and Twenty. The article underscores how these developments—along with previous projects like 2 Gladstone and 8 Gladstone—are transforming the area into a vibrant and exciting place to be. Urban Toronto writer Julian Mirabelli focused on the unique design details, noting how the brick choices and facade treatments avoid monotony and compliment the neighbourhood’s historical aesthetic.
We also hosted another exciting tour of the Upper Beaches that created a lot of buzz online. This Renegade Love delivered a lovely blog post that really captured the feel of the area, saying “hop on the 501 or 503 streetcar and you’ll find yourself in this rapidly developing part of the city, a hidden gem with a strong local vibe”. Foodaholic also joined us for the tour, covering the gastronomic highlights of the area.

Urban Toronto published another article, this one focused on our east-end efforts. Writer Jack Landau pointed out progress on The Taylor, our project just east of The Carlaw at Dundas and Carlaw. He noted an important design feature that has people talking: “The glass will soon be complemented by brick, and The Taylor’s much-anticipated ‘Öko Skin‘ over much of the exterior walls. This advanced cladding, not seen much in Toronto yet, is a weatherproof concrete composite material which can be made to be mimic wood colours and textures”.
Last but certainly not least, the Toronto Star published this detailed feature on our exciting vision for the east, with a specific focus on our Riverside Square project. The article features an interview with Streetcar Founder and CEO Les Mallins, and details plans for the mixed-use community, including a new park, a pedestrian-cyclist path along Eastern Ave, as well as the revitalization of The Broadview Hotel.
With so much to look forward to in the coming months and years, it’s hard not to be excited for the new season. What are you looking forward to this fall? Tweet us at @StreetcarLofts, or connect with us on on Facebook.
