Pit stop: The Yorkville Condominiums tower site

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

 

A project of Lifetime Developments, The Yorkville Condominiums was designed by Rudy Wallman of Toronto’s Wallman Architects. The building boasts 166 units, including six 2-storey townhouses along the McMurrich Street side of the complex. Suites in the tower include a variety of configurations ranging from 383-square-foot studios to 1-bedrooms, 1-bedroom + dens,  2-bedrooms, 2-bedrooms + den, and penthouse suites in 1-bedroom _ den, 2-bedroom + den and 3-bedroom + den layouts. The project website indicates that all units are sold out.

Below are three building renderings that appear on The Yorkville Condominiums website, followed by a series of photos I’ve shot at the building site since last summer, when the presentation and sales centre was located there. (My January 19 2011 post about The Yorkville project included photos of the site before the buildings were demolished.)
