Completion approaches at The Retro, a five-story, 21-unit development at 1836-44 East York Street in East Kensington. Developed by the Stamm Development Group, the project will include a commercial space on the ground floor and a roof deck at the top, which will offer sweeping views of the skyline. Grit Construction is the contactor. The building will feature a modern façade with white brick is on the lower floors and gray cladding on the upper levels. Black cladding accents the corners, adding texture to the design. Renderings show trees along the sidewalk, which will cast shade and enhance the street ambiance.
1836-1844 East York Street
In the summer of 2019, construction started on a five-story mixed-use building at 1836-1844 East York Street in Kensington. The five-story development spans a 5,233-square-foot lot and features around 24,600 square feet of floor space, with commercial space at the ground level and 19 residential units above, topped with a roof deck. Kore Design Architecture has released two variations of the design, though both maintain the essential concept of a boxy mass with gently flared projections at the street-facing façade.
