The launch of The Yorkville Condominiums is just around the corner.
In early 2011, Lifetime Developments will introduce a new residence that will usher in a new era of luxury in Toronto's prestigious Bloor-Yorkville area - one of Canada's most desirable neighbourhoods with its designer boutiques, art galleries and bevy of urban parks. Situated at the corner of Davenport Road and tree-lined McMurrich Street, just east of Bay and steps from transit, The Yorkville consists of an iconic 31-storey tower, plus six executive townhomes, all designed by Rudy Wallman of multi-award-winning Wallman Architects. Interiors are by Melandro Quilatan and Tania Richardson of Tomas Pearce Interior Design Consulting. The grand two-storey lobby will be home to a 24-hour concierge, and will have a three-sided replace under a signature chandelier. On the fifth floor, the residents' lounge opens to a piano bar and billiards room. There is a private wine cellar and dining room; a caterer's kitchen and unique culinary kitchen, both available for private chefs; a fully equipped fitness studio, cardio and yoga studios; men's and women's change rooms with steam rooms that open out onto the plunge pool. The rooftop terrace has a lounge, barbecue and dining area, and is landscaped by gh3 with stainless steel planters of boxwood hedges. Each suite and two-storey townhome also features the nest quality appointments in modernistic designs. In collaboration with Ryerson University, Lifetime Developments recently mounted a Co-op Program open to third and forth year students in The School of Image Arts, who created photos that capture the essence of Yorkvillism" – the unerring panache and state of mind of those who frequent this special neighbourhood. The results of the program will be a coffee table-style book replete with local pictures, a photo gallery within the Presentation Centre, pictures artistically framed in The Yorkville's model suite, and upon completion of the condominium, display of seleced images in the front lobby and other amenity areas.
