Slate and Multiplex Celebrate the Topping Out of Junction House in Toronto
Tuesday, September 20, 2022
Slate Asset Management, a global alternative investment platform targeting real assets, and Multiplex, a premier global construction company, reached a major construction milestone last week with the celebration of the topping out of Junction House, a nine-story, 151 unit boutique condominium in Toronto’s burgeoning Junction neighborhood.
A topping out event was held for the project team on the 9th floor of Junction House, displaying sweeping views of the Toronto skyline. Brandon Donnelly, Managing Director, Development at Slate, Lucas Manuel, Partner at Slate, and Werner Swanepoel, Multiplex Project Director for Junction House, spoke to the attendees gathered onsite about the vision for the project and the impact Junction House will have on the local neighborhood. The remarks were followed by food and beverages for all attendees in the adjacent lot.
Junction House sits at the gateway to Toronto’s historic Junction neighborhood, which derives its name from its rich history of connecting both people and things from all over the country and the world. The development features a variety of different suite types, including The House Collection, which is comprised of spacious two-story suites and large single-floor residences—the perfect accommodation for the modern family. With an emphasis on convenience and lifestyle, each suite in the building was designed with the intent of maximizing space and functionality. Homes feature expansive outdoor spaces and refined interior finishes, creating a unique offering in this newly established area.
Brandon Donnelly, Managing Director, Development at Slate, said: “From the very outset of this project, we had bold ambitions to realize the full potential of this site and introduce an unparalleled residential offering in West Toronto. This topping out marks an exciting milestone in realizing that vision – we are bringing to life a truly unique, thoughtfully-designed boutique condominium in one of the City’s most vibrant and livable urban communities. We look forward to Junction House being complete next year.”

Slate and Multiplex partnered with Toronto-based architectural firm, Superkül, and award-winning design firm, Dialogue 38, to create the ultimate midrise residence in this diverse, urban community. Junction House’s design and amenities embody effortless living. Beautifully refined interior finishes inspired by a Canadian approach to minimalism, an expansive rooftop terrace with commanding views of the downtown skyline, a state-of-the-art health and wellness center, access to co-working areas, and concierge and parcel storage are just some of the ways in which functionality is prioritized.
Werner Swanepoel, Multiplex Project Director for Junction House, said: We are fortunate to be working alongside project partners who are committed to building this transformative project in the Junction neighbourhood. We can only reach our milestones like topping off on a project, with support and dedication from everyone involved. Thank you to our team of experts; let us continue bringing this project to life.”
