Tribute Communities is bringing a premium new mixed-use development to midtown Toronto’s desirable Yonge and Eglinton corridor. Branded as Y&S Condos to reflect the project’s situation at 2161 Yonge Street near the intersection of Yonge Street and Soudan Avenue, this glittering and luxurious high-rise will feature hundreds of first-rate residential units. The building’s lower storeys will house appealing office spaces,
while convenient retail facilities will complement the street-level frontage.
The Yonge and Eglinton area has seen a great deal of new development in recent years, leading Tribute Communities to seek a creative way to differentiate this highly anticipated project. Y&S Condos is designed to appeal to homebuyers and investors seeking larger spaces, as its residential units feature generously sized floorplans that outsize comparable suites found in most of the neighbourhood’s other newly built high-density properties.
Currently in the pre-construction phase, Y&S Condos will ascend to a zenith of 35 storeys and house 284 amply sized residential suites. The building will also include an estimated 89,000 square feet (8,268 square metres) of office space in addition to ground-level retail accommodations incorporated into the tower’s base. Its retail units will total 6,490 square feet (603 square metres), and wrap around Yonge Street onto Soudan Avenue. The office facilities are slated to occupy the second through sixth floors, while state-of-the-art residential amenities are planned for the seventh floor.
Conceptual illustrations showcase a striking and unique exterior featuring dark tones and grid-like modules with sleek panes of tinted glass rising from a stacked, compact cubic podium. The building integrates perfectly with the modern flair of the Yonge and Eglinton area while standing out as an instantly recognizable neighbourhood landmark.
Y&S Condos’ 284 residential suites are expected to include 108 one-bedroom units, 141 two-bedroom units, and 39 three-bedroom units. Its seventh-floor indoor amenity spaces will total an impressive 6,792 square feet (631 square metres), and will deliver alluring luxuries including a fully equipped 24-hour gym, a business space for meetings and telecommuters, a children’s playroom, and a bookable party lounge with a large kitchen and beautifully furnished seating areas. The seventh floor will also feature 6,361 square feet (591 square metres) of outdoor recreation areas for the exclusive use of building residents, and a four-level underground garage will provide a total of 110 parking spots for suite owners and building tenants.
Y&S Condos does not yet have a confirmed completion date, but current projections indicate the building should be move-in ready by March 2023.
JOIN ONE OF TORONTO’S MOST DESIRABLE NEIGHBOURHOODS
Highly walkable with a prominent profile as one of the city’s trendiest and most in-demand residential areas, Yonge and Eglinton continues to surge in popularity in the 21 st century. Y&S Condos will sit just steps south of this famous Toronto intersection, which offers a near-perfect Walk Score of 99/100. Enticing restaurants, convenient take-out eateries, cozy cafes, gourmet grocers, fully stocked supermarkets, and a flagship LCBO outlet all sit within easy walking distance. The newly expanded Yonge Eglinton Centre, which features dozens of retail stores and services, further enhances the
neighbourhood’s excellent walkability.
The Yonge and Soudan intersection also boasts an outstanding Transit Score of 95/100. TTC subway service is easily available at the intersection of Yonge and Eglinton, giving future Y&S Condos residents immediate access to the system’s Line 1 (Yonge-University-Spadina). An extensive network of TTC bus routes also serves the surrounding area, while the Eglinton Crosstown Light Rail Transit (LRT) line will provide another rapid transportation option for travelers headed east or west.
The Eglinton LRT will be integrated into the TTC subway system as Line 5, and will span from a western terminus (Mount Dennis) at Eglinton Avenue West and Weston Road to an eastern end point at Eglinton Avenue East and Kennedy Road. It is expected to be operational by 2021 and will speed up crosstown public transit travel by an estimated 60%. Thus, it will be available for use by the time Y&S Condos is move-in ready, making Yonge and Eglinton one of the only places in Toronto with rapid transit options in all four directions.
Motorists will be close to multiple major routes and traffic corridors, including the Don Valley Parkway and the Allen Road express entryway to Highway 401. This makes for easy navigation to Pearson International Airport and destinations throughout the GTA and across Southern Ontario.
All in all, buyers can hardly find a better place to invest in than Yonge and Eglinton. The area’s recent wave of development has given this legacy neighbourhood a vibrant infusion of youthful energy, contributing to a lively and creative atmosphere that compares favourably to the most inspired pockets of the city’s downtown core.
