Boutique 7 unit building in Fairfield across from Beacon Hill Park

986 heywood ave aryze

Aryze Developments has built a niche reputation for small lot infill developments in the region. 956 Heywood is no different.

The subject site is a single family home on a 51×120′ lot nestled between two 4 storey residential buildings. Aryze is proposing to redevelop the lot into a boutique 4 storey, 7 unit building. It will feature a grass covered parking enclosure for one level of parking for 7 vehicles, and 6 short-term bicycle / 12 long-term bicycle spaces.

The property has been isolated by the holdout problem, in which it is now surrounded by higher density buildings. Aryze is the perfect developer to overcome variances needed to build a suitable project. Similar projects nearby include 986 Heywood and 1014 Park Blvd.

Residential units will be composed of a garden suite of 1,670SF, and the remaining six suites each 1,205SF, two per floor split North and South. Each unit will have living area space oriented west towards the park. This unit size is very desirable in a world where new construction has typically been very small units. These floorplans will certainly be livable and potentially offer 3 bedroom configurations.
