1 Yorkville, Toronto

 

 

The Toronto horizon is about to be home to the most awe-inspiring new milestone development. Bazis and Plaza unveiled breathtaking plans for 1 Yorkville, an elegant and exclusive condominium that is poised to become the paramount address in Toronto's most desired neighbourhood.

With an enviable platinum location at the corner of Yorkville Avenue and Yonge Street, 1 Yorkville's distinguishing design will set a new standard for lavish living in Toronto's toniest district.

"There is simply no other address like this," says Michael Gold, president of Bazis. "This is a building that will stand out not only because of its stunning architecture and exquisite finishes, but also because of its magnificent amenities and exclusive services. It will be like staying in a 6-star hotel at a 6-star location."

1 Yorkville will offer an unquestionably generous array of amenities located on three levels. A Spa Level will pamper the most spoiled resident; a Fitness Level will keep any athletic enthusiast in best shape; and Rooftop Entertainment Level will provide its users with a distraction from day to day life under the sun or stars.

When you look at the criteria of what makes an outstanding location, 1 Yorkville far exceeds all expectations. The finest of Toronto will be within walking distance of the front door of 1 Yorkville. Strolling through Hermes, Gucci, Holt Renfrew, dinner at the Four Seasons across the street, a glass of Moet at the Hyatt’s Roof Lounge - whether it's luxurious shops or a selection of the city’s finest restaurants – the options are endless. And 1 Yorkville is conveniently by the Bloor and Yonge subway lines and PATH.

The 1 Yorkville residences will be reflective of the building design and will offer a perspective not seen in any other luxury condominium in Toronto. They will include one, two and three bedroom residences with many custom designed features.

This irreplaceable building, 1 Yorkville — designed by award-winning architect and creative genius Rosario Varacalli — will feature some of Toronto's foremost design, a building that demonstrates considerable creativity in how it is connected within the community.

“1 Yorkville will be distinguished from all the other condominium projects in Toronto because of three important factors: preservation, porosity and changing perspectives,” explains Varacalli.

The exceptional structure will be built above the fully restored Yorkville Village buildings that date to the 1860s. This meticulous preservation work — overseen by ERA Architects, Toronto's premier heritage specialists — will involve the retention of not just the graceful historical facades but the entire original structure of the 19th century buildings. This is where the condominium’s boutique retail offerings will be housed.

In terms of porosity, 1 Yorkville will be steps away from two subways lines and enjoy nearby access to the PATH system. The development will also include a revitalized and widened 25-foot-wide pedestrian green walkway that will connect Cumberland Avenue to Yorkville Avenue.

1 Yorkville is also about changing perspectives, with a magnificent tower that's clad in what Varacalli describes as "3D wallpaper" — a facade that creates dramatic changes in light, shadow and colour based on which direction the building is being beheld from.

"It will always appear as though it's changing, depending on the time of day, light, or direction," says Varacalli.

This is not the first time Bazis and Plaza have joined forces. Previous partnerships between these stellar developers resulted in the creation of two of the Toronto's most successful and architecturally inspired residential condominiums: Exhibit on Bloor, an exceptional and striking building located right across from the Royal Ontario Museum, and Emerald Park, two dramatic condominium towers at Yonge and Sheppard that have taken North York design to an entirely new level.

"We're pleased to be once again partnering with Plaza on the development of this irreplaceable condominium for Toronto," says Gold. "With the combination of our collective expertise and experience, augmented by Rosario's unparalleled eye for design, 1 Yorkville will raise the bar for indulgent living in this world-class city."

 

Design

The irreplaceable building, 1 Yorkville - designed by award-winning architect Rosario Varacalli - will be Toronto's foremost design, a building that demonstrates considerable creativity in connecting with the community.

Wrapped in faceted metallic ribbons, 1 Yorkville tower is singular, slender and elegant. The ribbons produce unique interplay of shadow and light, which move across the textured surface and emphasize a glittering effect embedded in the cityscape.

The building provides a contemporary expression of elegance and intrigue, celebrating the energy of the most desirable location and its metropolitan nature

Location

When you look at the criteria of what makes an outstanding location, 1 Yorkville far exceeds all expectations. Located at Yorkville and Yonge, the finest of Toronto will be within walking distance of the front door of 1 Yorkville. Strolling through Hermes, Gucci, Holt Renfrew, dinner at the Four Seasons across the street, a glass of Moet at the Hyatt's Roof Lounge - whether it's luxurious shops or a selection of the city's finest restaurants – the options are endless. And 1 Yorkville is conveniently by the Bloor and Yonge subway lines and PATH, which makes all of Toronto within easy reach.

 

Amenities

There are two main areas within 1 Yorkville where residents will enjoy these ultra-swank amenities, and we have introduced readers to them in earlier articles. One group of amenities is atop the building's heritage podium, the other is at the very top of the tower. Today we have more details of what's planned for both sections, and we will start down at podium-top level.

"The Spa" on the fourth floor is where Bazis plans on constructing a myriad of water amenities. There will be an outdoor pool with cabanas, a wading pool, a hot tub, and inside we can now show you plunge pools, both hot and cold.

An aqua massage, steam and sauna rooms, a Zen Garden, and a juice bar - all surrounded by ultra-lux finishes and lighting, round out this incredibly well-appointed level.

One level up on the fifth floor is where you'd go to work up a sweat. The bulk of the space is dedicated to a fitness gallery outfitted with top-tier weight and cardio machines. There is also a cross fit studio and a Pilates studio to round out workouts. A WiFi lounge and games room are also planned for this floor.

Finally, the rooftop is where you'd want to entertain your guests. With great views of the city, fully-equipped kitchens, two party rooms, a fire pit lounge, multi-media lounge, a sun deck and outdoor theatre there is plenty to keep guests entertained… and perpetually jaw-dropped!
