B. Street Condos

New rendering from UrbanToronto. Looks great! Would love to see more developments like this built along Bathurst in the future, especially between College and Dundas.

The old Four Seasons will be converted into condos as "Yorkville Plaza". Looks like the base will be remodelled, and glass will be replaced.

Condo tower in the works for site of heritage office building on Dundonald St. near Yonge & Wellesley

20 Aug 2011


Quote:
Tall “cube” coming? A developer is planning a condo highrise for 17 Dundonald Street in the Yonge & Wellesley area — but the tower’s projected floor count apparently is up in the air.

People living on and near Dundonald Street say various sources — including their city councillor — have told them a new development is in the works for the property, currently the site of a 2.5-storey office building situated just a stone’s throw from the Wellesley subway station. Constructed in 1956 as the Commercial Travellers’ Association of Canada Building, the low-rise office structure was designed by the Toronto architecture firm Weir Cripps and Associates.
Quote:
The building is included on the city’s inventory of heritage properties; in fact, on June 8 2010, Toronto City Council adopted an “Intention to Designate” for the property. In an April 21 2010 background report presented to city councillors and the Toronto Preservation Board, city planners stated that 17 Dundonald had “cultural heritage value” worthy of designation under the Ontario Heritage Act.
Quote:
Area residents say Ward 27 City Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam has told meetings of neighbourhood condo owners that a developer has been discussing redevelopment proposals for 17 Dundonald with city planners. Their intention, apparently, is to construct a highrise condo building in a Cubist style intended to emulate the Modernist architecture of the office building it will replace. But I’ve heard conflicting information about just how tall the building might be: 18, 19, 25 and 30 storeys are the floor counts people have mentioned. Word on the street is that a tower taller than the nearby 22 Condominiums and Continental Tower (23 and 24 storeys, respectively) doesn’t sit well with city planners, who feel too much height would be out of character for Dundonald Street. So far there has been no word on the identity of either the proposed building’s developer or the architectural firm designing it.

Yeah this is a great looking development. The variation in height and facade depth gives it a more fine grain appearance which is important in urban areas. I actually think the view at sidewalk level will be impressive as well.

The [Toronto Parking Authority] also nets millions for Toronto in real estate deals, recently selling its garage on Yorkville Ave. near Bay St. to a developer, who will build a highrise condominium building and replace the lost parking with an underground garage.

4800 Yonge Street, SW corner of Yonge/Sheppard (North York,Toronto)

The image url's have "KPF" in it. Looks like this could be a Kohn-Petersen-Fox designed building.

I believe the site is owned by OMERS.

Mercer is going to be a really dense residential back street and more density for the District. I knew this lot was soon due for a development when a proposal was planned across the street. 27 units in 21 storeys....appears like it's going to be a fairly slim and exclusive residence. Sounds like a possibility for interesting architecture.

4050 Yonge Street, North York, Toronto. 7 storeys

http://www.4050yongestreet.ca/

Looks decent, but shorter than I would have anticipated. But along with the SW corner proposal, it's good to see more office buildings in NYCC. Even though it could be years before these two projects officially start, it's just good to finally have solid proposals in the works/leasing. Yonge/Sheppard has been left incomplete for so long now, even though in theory it should be NYCC's most important intersection.

There are more renders on the site, but they are far too large to be reposted here.

856 Dundas Street West

With Dundas West being a new hotspot for hipsters and mainstreamers, I see new developments like this as appropriate urban growth.

The NYCC office tower proposal is painfully bland. I wonder when office tower developers will hire architects instead of focus solely on lease rates/psf. I'm beginning to doubt if Toronto will ever get a remarkable office tower.

Howard park on the other hand looks pretty interesting. 4050 Yonge is also quite nice in an understated way. It'll all come down to materials.

I'm not too concerned, 4800 Yonge is a decent design for North York. With all due respect to North York Centre, it's still a secondary/tertiary skyline for Toronto. If we do get a significant office proposal, I'd much prefer to have it for the downtown core. 45 Bay is supposed to be an interestingly designed building, there's also a half-a-dozen or so office projects in the works scattered throughout downtown.
