Dundas West’s infamous Giraffe building has a new owner

In late March, the Giraffe building at the corner of Dundas St W. and Bloor St W. sold to a new owner, a company connected to a developer called Trinity Group. According to land registry records, Trinity Group’s company, Devtrin (Bloor) Inc., paid a total of $35 million for the Giraffe building and three adjacent properties.  Trinity declined to comment, and they haven’t yet filed a formal development application for the site, but the eye-popping sale price suggests that another condo proposal is on the way.

When and if something does happen on the corner, it will be long past time. “I am desperate to get somebody to bring in a reasonable proposal on that site,” Gord Perks, the city councillor whose ward encompasses the Giraffe building site says. “It has bothered me for a decade now.”
