This new condo project is a 59-storey pre-construction condominium proposed by Cityzen Development for Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood. Designed to serve as a gateway to the glamorous enclave, 878 Yonge Street is slated for occupancy in 2021.
This coveted site sits at the southwest corner of Yonge and Scollard Streets, just south of Davenport Road. Cityzen’s application proposes a contemporary structure comprised of a six-storey base anchoring an elegant, 53-storey residential tower. 194 residential units would be included, with a mix of 108 one-bedroom layouts, 54 two-bedroom layouts and 32 three-bedroom layouts.
16,371 square-feet of indoor amenity space is proposed for this Yorkville condominium, which would be located in the building’s base, from levels two through six. An additional 2,970 square-feet of indoor amenity space would be located on the building’s 17th floor. Over 4,500 square-feet of outdoor amenity space is proposed as well, most of which would take the form of an outdoor terrace on the fourth level, overlooking Yonge Street. Smaller outdoor amenity terraces on the building’s fifth and six floors would look southward
This new condominiums also calls for seven levels of underground parking, which will house 189 vehicle spaces and 196 bike spaces.
The site sits adjacent to the Frank Stollery Parkette, a small public courtyard. As part of the proposal, this parkette will be reimagined and enhanced with improved landscaping and the addition of a world-class art piece, which befits the space as a gateway to Toronto’s downtown. The building’s base will be designed to provide an attractive and modern addition to the public realm, with plenty of glass and clean lines. The residential tower, accessible off Scollard, will be slender in form, with a dramatic grid-like façade clad in white marble and concrete.
