Brownstones on the Park Town homes Powerhouse St. (Davenport and Lansdowne) Real Estate Amenities and Neighbourhood:
Developed by the Brownstone group of companies who have 40 years of experience in constructing homes for people. This is phase IV of approximately 2500 homes being developed in the Davenport Village area of the west end Toronto. This phase of the development will sit on a park with unobstructed views of the city. Phase I was a very popular development and sold 212 units in two weekends. Also the very successful 104 Foundry Lofts followed and then 84 town homes, Brownstones in Davenport Village. So this phase will follow suit I imagine. This development will house 128 stacked town homes.
Suite Features include pre-finished hardwood flooring throughout the main level, European style cabinets in the Kitchen, four stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops.
The neighbourhood is surrounded by growing neighbourhoods undergoing much gentrification. Just south on Lansdowne and west on Bloor is the hot up and coming neighbourhood known as Bloordale Village, Wallace and Emerson. This area is in my opinion seeing some of the strongest growth and gentrification in the city on the west end. By and large a majority rental area in the past with its fair share of problems, but now the turn-over to new ownership is bringing in younger couples and professionals who are retrofitting their homes.
Two other neighbourhoods that are seeing similar trends of transition are the Junction and the Junction Triangle.

Brownstones on the Park is steps from one of the cities largest recreational facilities, the Joseph Piccininni Community Recreational Centre. Indoor Facilities here include a 25 metre pool, indoor gymnasium, soccer and boccie ball courts. Outside are some tennis courts, soccer fields and a baseball diamond.
Just north of Davenport and opposite Brownstones on the Park is Earlscourt Park which measures approx. 31 acres of parkland and features.
Check out Dufferin Grove Park and all it has to offer, from community led programs to teach kids how to grow vegetables to the year around farmers market.
Running east-west along Davenport is the 127 Davenport Bus which runs to Old Weston Road / St Clair and to the Spadina Subway station on the Bloor-Danforth line.
Running north-south along Lansdowne, is the 47 Lansdowne Bus between the Lansdowne Subway Station and the Spadina-York Subway Station.
Also running east-west is the 26 Dupont Bus. This will take east bound towards the Junction and east bound into the heart of the city and links with the University–Spadina Subway line.
Shopping and Restaurants:
Head north to St. Claire and experience the many little restaurants such as the Big Ragu. Also check out the Rushton and use walkscore.com to determine what else you’d like to try.
For shopping the Galleria Mall and the Dufferin Mall are minutes away by TTC or by car. The later mall has seen extensive facelifts in the last few years to cater to the changing demographic moving into the area.
Head a few minutes south on Lansdowne to Bloor street and walk along the Bloordale shopping strip heading east. This is vibrant and diverse shopping experience, every type of food / restaurant is represented. Living in the neighbourhood, my favourites are 3 Speed, Vena’s Best Roti in Town, Holy Oak Cafe and a Vietnamese restaurant at the base of Brock and Bloor.
