Teeple Architects Supersize a Tiny Toronto Library

A new rental tower by Teeple Architects makes room for the relocated Perth/Dupont Branch, giving the library and neighbourhood a big upgrade

By Sara Cunningham

The Toronto Public Library, Teeple Architects and developers TAS and Bentall Kennedy are championing social good in the Junction Triangle at Dupont and Campbell Avenue in the form of a new 14-story mixed-use tower. The project is adding 235 much-needed rental units to the neighbourhood. The brick building will house the relocated Perth/Dupont Branch Library, which was one of the smallest branch in Toronto since it opened in 1977. The 933 square-metre space will introduce new services geared at enriching community life. According to TPL, this will include new spaces for children, meeting rooms, larger collections, programming and more digital services and technology.
