Yorkville Plaza Construction Tour

        

Yorkville Plaza

Recently, we had the opportunity to take a construction tour of Camrost Felcorp’s highly anticipated Toronto condo, Yorkville Plaza (located at the corner of Yorkville and Avenue Road). We met Camrost Felcorp’s Director of Marketing Richard Mariani at the site, who served as our tour guide.

Construction progress at Yorkville Plaza

After gearing up with our boots, vests, and hard hats, we went straight to the penthouse level to check out the endless views from atop Yorkville Plaza. No matter which way you look, the view is stunning. To the west, there are treetops and open air, and to the south, you have Toronto’s famous skyline. To the east, you have the glitz and glamour of Yorkville, and to the north, residential vistas.

Mariani explained that there are only six suites at the penthouse level, and that the floorplans are still somewhat customizable since no walls have been put in yet. One of the penthouses has sold, so there are only five remaining. With indoor and outdoor living space included, the square footage for the penthouse suites ranges from 1,500 to 2,500 square feet.

On our way down to the typical floors to check out the windows, which are almost completely installed, Mariani said that Yorkville Plaza is 92% sold, with only 40 suites remaining. Not including the penthouses, the remaining suites range in size from 370 to 1,015 square feet.

We stopped in on the third floor where the amenities and a few suites will be. The suites on the third floor benefit, not only from being near the amenities, but also from the soaring ceilings. There will also be outdoor terracing wrapping around the third floor.

Camrost’s Imperial Plaza lives up to the hype with two storeys of amazing loft space

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…

Behind the Scenes Tour: 16 Foot Lofts at Imperial Plaza
Real loft living is hard to come by in Toronto. Although many new developments claim loft-style features, only former industrial spaces that have been converted to work or living spaces are worthy of the true ‘loft’ title.

Last Friday, the NewInHomes.com team went on a very cool behind the scenes tour of Camrost-Felcorp’s Imperial Plaza – specifically, the 8th and 9th floors, the future home of Imperial Plaza Lofts (check out our pics of the incredible raw space).

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.

At Etobicoke’s California Condos, where suites start at $225,900, great design reigns

Young professionals and downsizers with “a certain taste on a certain budget” will be drawn to the LaJolla model suite at California Condos, says designer Andrew Bottecchia. The designer of Bottecchia Artistic Group worked on the 975-square-foot unit alongside the Design Agency. At the suite, a clean and contemporary look prevails: The feel is fresh and inviting, with a neutral palette punctuated by pops of red. Glass tabletops and limited accessorizing keep sightlines open, for an airy and uncluttered ambiance. “We didn’t want to overdress the space,” Mr. Bottecchia says. “It’s just nice clean lines and comfortable.” Remaining suites at the Camrost-Felcorp site range from 455 to 975 square feet and are priced from $225,900 to the mid-$500,000s. The sales office is located at 185 Legion Rd. N., Terrace Level, Etobicoke. It’s open Monday to Thursday from noon to 6 p.m. and weekends from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, call 416-251-8888 or visit californiacondosto.ca.

No Toronto condo bubble, RBC says

        

Tara Perkins | The Globe and Mail

There is no bubble in Toronto’s condo market, says the economics department of Royal Bank of Canada, the country’s largest bank and biggest mortgage lender.

And worries about the market are largely overdone, senior economist Robert Hogue says in a report to be released Tuesday.

He argues that the market does not pose as much risk as many people, including top policy makers in Ottawa, think it does.

For one thing, he believes that record sales for new condos are picking up the slack that exists because fewer single-family homes are being built. Government actions aimed at curbing urban sprawl are restricting builders’ ability to create new homes and so to meet the demand from the roughly 38,000 net new households in the Greater Toronto Area each year, builders must build upwards, Mr. Hogue says.
