Abacus promises to be a 7-storey arrow pointing to the Dundas West strip

Toronto's lean towards less rectilinear architecture continues with Abacus, the mid-rise condos going up at 1245 Dundas Street West.

Designed by RAW and developed by the lawyer who represented the passengers on that famous long Air Transat glide into Portugal in 2001, Abacus will be an eye-catching seven-storey bit of pointiness in the midst of a still evolving Dundas West strip.

Developer Tony Azevedo, who also rescued a collapsing bit of Vine Avenue in the Junction last year, has told Yonge Street Media: "I really, really like modern design." Though he's only just begun, Azevedo seems cut from the same mould as Les Malins, the accidental developer who built a one-time personal investment into major mid-rise player Streetcar.

The condos are at the pre-construction registration stage now, and are being sold through Paul Johnston, with 59 Project Management, who also handled the Vine Avenue development, set to see the thing through.
