Imperial Plaza – Luxury Defined

Imperial Plaza

David Feldman, President & CEO at Camrost Felcorp, talks luxury at Imperial Plaza

“While many talk about luxury in terms of fashion and trend, those with a true appreciation and understanding for the finer things know the true luxury is timeless. From a project’s architecture to its material palette, luxury real estate must avoid the trends of the moment and embrace a design that will forever be considered a classic.

This was the principle which defined our revitalization of the celebrated Imperial Oil building at St. Clair Avenue West and Avenue Road, and led to its transformation into one of Canada’s most celebrated new luxury condominiums, known as Imperial Plaza.

Standing at 23 storeys, Imperial Plaza is a stunning feat of architecture made of limestone and granite, with a glass-clad exterior. Suites throughout the condominium enjoy up to 10ft. ceiling heights, and a range of outstanding finishes and features including stone countertops and back painted glass backsplashes. To top it off, many of the residences boast outstanding views.

From it’s distinctive location, iconic legacy, rich material palette, and elegant and timeless design, Imperial Plaza is a development that defines luxury real estate…forever.”

Yorkville Plaza II : Cumberland Tower at Avenue and Cumberland

Historically, Torontonians have come to associate the Yorkville neighbourhood with its lane ways, boutiques and fine dining restaurants.

Here, within the heart of Yorkville, is a new condo development from Camrost Felcorp, called Yorkville Plaza II: Cumberland Tower.

Small suites that are big on luxury

        

The Globe And Mail | Real Estate Collection | Spring 2014

The Cumberland Tower - Contemporary Suite. All images are artist concept.The Cumberland small suites provide all the perks of living in the exciting Yorkville neighbourhood and luxury amenities, but at a lesser price tag than other condo projects in the area.

It can be a smart investment to buy a smaller suite at a more upscale address

The smart money is on small. It’s smart thinking to buy a smaller suite at a prestigious downtown address, as you get the same level of luxuries and the same amenities as those who buy in the million-dollar range.

More people are thinking ‘small.’ And developers are meeting the demand with more suites at an entry level price tag. Camrost-Felcorp recently launched the second phase of its Cumberland project in the heart of Yorkville where 100 units are selling for under $400,000, says CEO David Feldman. And another 220 suites, with one-bedroom-plus-den, are selling for just under $500,000.

A New Direction in Yorkville

        

RYAN STARR
SPECIAL TO THE STAR

“Affordable Yorkville.”

That’s how seasoned Toronto broker Hunter Milborne characterizes what’s on offer at The Cumberland at Yorkville Plaza, a new 40-storey condo building to be built on the prestigious corner of Avenue Rd. and Cumberland Ave. More than 100 of the 272 suites recently released for sale are priced under $400,000.

“It’s pretty good for this neighbourhood,” says Milborne, principal of Milborne Real Estate Inc., and head of sales for the project. “If you went shopping and said, ‘I want to buy something in Yorkville for under $400,000,’ most people would say that’s not going to happen.’

“The Cumberland — a glass tower that flares out near the top of its north side — marks the second phase of Yorkville Plaza. The first phase saw the old Four Seasons hotel, at Avenue Rd. and Yorkville Ave., converted into the 32-storey tower: TheNew Residences of Yorkville Plaza. Phase 2 construction will also erect an 11-storey, office-condo building on Yorkville Ave.

Loft space was once hard to come by at St. Clair and Avenue Road, but Camrost has changed the game with their Imperial Plaza project.

After opening in 1957, the Imperial Oil Building at 111 St Clair West quickly became one of Toronto’s most iconic skyscrapers. After the company relocated to Calgary, Camrost converted the Imperial Oil Building into a unique residential community with two storeys of immaculately put together lofts.

With 24 suites on the eighth floor and 30 suites on the ninth floor, the lofts boast two storey layouts, ceilings that really soar (up to 16 feet), views of the city that are tough to match and the option to combine units. And though the building is still in the process of being converted, the interiors are stunning. Check out some photos from our construction tour below…

South Podium Demolition Underway at Yorkville Plaza

        

Alex Corey | urbantoronto.ca

All eyes in Yorkville have recently been focused on the grand opening of the new Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences on Bay Street. As the dust settles, we thought it might be appropriate to draw your attention back to the old Four Seasons on Avenue Road, currently deep in the process of being renovated to become the new Yorkville Plaza. Developed by Camrost-Felcorp, the project will see the extensive retro fitting of the iconic 1970′s tower at Yorkville and Avenue Road, while a proposed new tower designed by WZMH Architects at Cumberland and Avenue would rise where the current demolition is taking place.
