Toronto’s condo boom is at an all-time high with more buyers than ever choosing units over houses, and developers working hard to meet the demand with stunning, unique buildings. There are plenty of new condominiums at various stages of construction, from some of the best developers in the city, but here are our picks of the five most anticipated developments.
It’s no surprise that there is a lot of hype around the building that will take the city to new heights. YSL will stand tall and proud at 344 meters with 98 stories of retail, office and residential space, earning the title of Toronto’s tallest residential building. But YSL has more to offer than just record-breaking height – the dream location at 391 Yonge Street is close to restaurants, landmarks, schools, hospitals and transit options. Not only that, but we can always rely on developer Cresford for breathtaking luxury from the design to the finishes to the amenities.
2. The One
The One will transform Toronto’s most important intersection with its slick design and elegant interiors. The 82 story building will house luxurious residential suites above eight stories of upper-scale shops and restaurants. The units will feature high ceilings and breathtaking city views as far as Lake Ontario. Residents will also benefit from an enviable Yorkville location and premium amenities including an atrium, cleaners, valet, concierge, theatre, gym, pilates suite, spinning room and private pools.
Currently under construction at 1 Yonge Street, Prestige promises to be a great addition to the retail and commercial offerings, as well as the housing market. The three towers will house 3885 spacious, modern suites over 95 stories as well as desirable amenities including a state-of-the-art fitness center, a stunning public courtyard and more. The Waterfront location is also close to Union and King Stations as well as plenty of schools and restaurants. Occupancy is scheduled for 2021, but it’s no surprise that this building is already sparking plenty of interest.
4. Church and Wellesley
This building is widely anticipated as it promises to improve the aesthetic of one of Toronto’s most prominent intersections with its unique architecture and style. Church and Wellesley condos will house retail units on the ground floor, a grocer on the second floor and 541 stunning residential units above. The convenient location offers easy access to the restaurants, shops, and entertainment of downtown Toronto, making this a great home as well as an attractive addition to the junction.
5. Mirvish and Gehry
Two big and beautiful towers will house retail, commercial, cultural and educational spaces as well as luxurious residential units. Mirvish and Gehry condos will stand at 275 metres in King Street’s arts and entertainment district. The distinctive design of the exterior combined with the luxury interior design and breathtaking city views are sure to make a statement. The development aims to transform King Street into a thriving urban community with an enviable address that residents will love coming home to.
