Maple Leaf Building Supplies opened up in the 1920’s and occupied the corner of Dundas and Manning until the 1970’s. Most of us are more familiar with the site under its current name; ML Lumber and Building Supplies. This name change came to be in the 1970’s when there was a change in ownership. The thriving building supply outlet was bought out in the 1970’s by The Silva family. The Silva Family immigrated to Toronto in the 1960’s and spent a decade embedding themselves in the community, they worked hard, they earned and they saved. After 10 years of hard work and perseverance they found themselves in a position to purchase the building supply outlet. Get their piece of the (Canadian) pie, so to speak.
This corner has been an anchor of the up and coming community at Dundas and Manning for decades and now it’s time for a change. Here’s where the story gets an interesting twist. Every day I get news of another proposed development site, big developer comes in buys the land, builds, and moves on.
Well in this case we have a business owner who loves his community, he loves his site and most of all he appreciates all of the years of sweat his family poured in to this property that he has decided to take on the development himself. Renato Silva, the current owner of the site has years of experience in the building industry in custom homes and of course development is in his blood. His new development company called Tofni Developments will partner with top design firms, top condo sales team Brad J. Lamb Realty to make this development a reality.
NERO Residences will be located at 209 Manning right at Dundas and Manning. Will offer an interesting selection of lofthouses starting at $650,000 up to $900,000 and a variety of soft loft suits ranging from 400-1000sqft at approximately $550/sqft.
