2221 Yonge Condos


QR formVIP Registration

Welcome to 2221 Yonge Condos, a landmark condominium residence designed by world-renowned New York based Pei Partnership Architects in collaboration with Quadrangle Architects in tribute to Toronto’s celebrated modernist era.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Rising 56 majestic storeys, the distinctive tower sits askew from its six-storey podium to create interesting pockets of outdoor space around the seventh floor amenity area.

Choose from a variety of suites from one to three bedroom designs including some with dens. Renowned interior designers Munge+Leung have conceived 2221 Yonge’s amenity areas and suite finishes to reflect the evolution of modern condominium design.

Where downtown buzz meets midtown flair, Yonge & Eglinton is both a journey and a destination. Located right on the Yonge subway line with TTC bus routes in every direction and just steps from the future LRT, you will find it easy to connect to every part of Toronto. This is where it all comes together. Design, style, fashion, cuisine and art combine to create an eclectic fusion of sophisticated urban living, right at your doorstep. The neighbourhood energy is palpable and 2221 Yonge Condos is at the very heart of it all.

Coming Soon on Yonge at Eglinton

condominiums from $200’s

2221 Yonge Condos is destined to become one of Toronto’s truly iconic 21st century condominium towers. Emerging from a podium that meshes seamlessly with the Yonge/Eglinton streetscape, it’s a tower with a decidedly modern pedigree. Thin, sleek, almost feline, 2221 YONGE’s “look” is inspired by the most influential design movement of the last hundred years: International Style modernism. Among its leading practitioners, the legendary American architect I.M. Pei, whose son, Sandy Pei, of Pei Partnership Architects is the lead designer of 2221 YONGE CONDOS, in collaboration with the renowned Toronto-based firm, Quadrangle Architects. A meeting of the minds, if you will, at Toronto’s most eclectic corner.

STYLE MEETS SUBSTANCE IN A UNIQUE BLEND OF SPACE, COMFORT AND CREATIVITY. In the context of interior design, neo-modernism takes the influence of the 60s and melds it with contemporary styles to create a unique, cosmopolitan living environment. This can be seen in Munge-Leung’s eclectic canvas of colours and suite finishes at 2221 Yonge Condos . With 9-ft ceiling heights in most living areas and expansive floor-to-ceiling windows, the interiors are bathed in a profusion of light and space. Fresh air balconies or terraces extend your living space to the great outdoors. Designer selected high performance wide plank laminate flooring provides a rich texture to the overall ambience.

Gourmet kitchens sparkle with contemporary custom cabinetry, designer selected Caesarstone countertops, sleek European appliance package and more. Your bathroom is a haven of luxury with a magnificent marble countertop, custom designed cabinetry, undermount porcelain sink, deep soaker tub and gleaming chrome plumbing fixtures. Enjoy the latest in communication technology including next generation optical fiber connectivity. At 2221 YONGE CONDOS, your elegance and comfort underline the meticulous craftsmanship and attention to detail in every individual suite.

The Upper Canada Condos

As Avenue Road stretches north, it approaches one of Toronto’s most prestigious and desirable neighbourhoods. It is here where a stunning new condominium residence is being created which offers truly exceptional value amidst the affluence which surrounds it.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Developed by State Building Group and Madison Homes, The Upper Canada is an 18-storey condominium tower soon to rise at Avenue Road and Lonsdale Avenue, offering affordable elegance just steps from the stately mansions and tree-lined streets of one of Toronto’s most exclusive neighborhoods – Forest Hill.

Here one is mere minutes from the charming shops and cafes of Forest Hill Village, as well as the exclusive stores and restaurants Bloor/Yorkville.

Long one of the city’s most prestigious streets, Avenue Road will welcome the addition of The Upper Canada Condominium and its modern architecture, with a look reflecting the fresh design thinking of its development team and featuring a distinguished selection of suite designs that have been thoughtfully designed for the most discerning of purchasers.

Behind its sleek and contemporary façade of timeless precast, classic brick and expansive tinted glass, The Upper Canada Condominiums will comprise a total of only 93 exceptional suites. Spacious and practical in their design, suites will range in size from approximately 1,000 to 3,000 square at prices ranging from the $700,000’s to $2 million respectively.

Standard luxury features in the well-appointed suites include 9’ and 10’ ceilings, bright expansive windows, large designer kitchens and eating areas, premium built-in appliances, private ensuite retreats, and more. Moreover, each two-bedroom residence incorporates both a den and an oversized balcony or a highly sought-after terrace offering fabulous views of the city and the mature treetops of the surrounding neighbourhoods.

Just past the intricacy of the brick driveway and the richness of the front landscaping, residents and guests will enter The Upper Canada under a gracious glass-faceted canopy. With classic granite walls flanking either side of the stately entrance, a world of refinement awaits within.

Upon entering The Upper Canada Condominium, you and your guests will be greeted by a 24-hour concierge and a lobby that captures the exquisite design aesthetic of The Upper Canada. The focal point is the fireside seating area that is set under an elliptical coffered ceiling whose curved lines are echoed in the choice of both furnishings and artwork.

Just beyond the lobby, The Upper Canada provides all, the amenities one would expect from a residence of this extraordinary level of quality – an array of social, fitness and recreational facilities which contribute greatly to the appeal of its leisurely, maintenance-free lifestyle.

Imbued with the ambiance of a grand hotel, the party room and lounge are ideal for entertaining, with kitchen/dining facilities, and opening onto the lush greenery of a beautifully landscaped expansive private outdoor terrace. An inviting swimming pool evokes a spa-like atmosphere where one can enjoy a swim, relax on a chaise lounge chair, or bask in the soothing comfort of the hot tub. A professionally equipped exercise room welcomes residents for their daily workout while an elegantly furnished guest suite is available to accommodate their overnight guests.

Adding considerably to the advantages of its location at the gateway to Forest Hill, The Upper Canada Condos is also just minutes from Yonge Street – both the tony retail environs of Bloor-Yorkville and the trendy corner of Yonge and St. Clair – as well as offering easy access to the TTC and major highways.

The Upper Canada Condos’ design team has been augmented by the talents of award-winning architects EI Richmond, responsible for many of the GTA’s most desirable condominium addresses, along with respected interior design firm, Tomas Pearce Interior Design Consulting. Handling sales for the condominium residence is the renowned Sotheby’s International Realty.

State Building Group prides itself on offering some of Toronto’s finest developments, both in new single family homes and condominium. Recognized for its exceptional floor plan and space designs, as well as outstanding customer service, State Building Group has demonstrated its long standing commitment to satisfying the needs of the discerning home buyer for over 40 years.

It has done so consistently at projects ranging from the luxurious single family homes of The Bridlepath of Thornhill to the upscale condominiums of Hillside at Yonge and York Mills. Superior interiors, upgraded finishes and exceptionally well-proportioned room sizes are integral features of all State-built new homes and condominiums, and The Upper Canada Condos will continue to reflect this commitment.

With its coveted location, stunning design and superb value, The Upper Canada brings affordable elegance to Toronto’s most affluent of neighbourhoods.

Condo prices expected to jump in major Canadian markets

A new study by Genworth Canada and the Conference Board of Canada says first-time buyers, retirees and population growth will continue to fuel demand and price growth in condo markets in Canadian cities over the next few years.

The report looked at eight major metropolitan areas and noted that rising prices for single detached homes are encouraging first-time buyers to look at condos as an option, while retirees “remain heavy condominium consumers.” Further demographic support in the coming years will be provided by an aging population.

The report also cited continued low interest rates and employment growth as factors supporting the condo and housing market.

Genworth is a Canadian mortgage insurer based in Oakville, Ontario.

Here are a few more interesting factoids included in their report:

  • Absorption of new condos is forecast to fall only in Edmonton in 2012 while small increases are expected in Quebec City and Ottawa
  • Calgary absorptions are expected to more than double, but will remain below their boom-era level pre-recession
  • Unsold inventories in Toronto will stay below early 1990s levels and are expected to ease by 2013
  • Vancouver is the least affordable city in Canada while Calgary is the most affordable when analyzed relative to local incomes
  • In Toronto by 2013, the average resale condo price is expected to be $312,352, up by 2.5 per cent
  • Vancouver condo resale prices are expected to drop 2 per cent to $348,152

Many of the report’s predictions run contrary to warning issued by some experts and government officials about the Canadian housing market and some specific “overheated” markets.

“This data corroborates our view that the demand for condos in Canada, particularly at the price-point we insure, is well supported by our economy and our population,” said Brian Hurley, chairman and CEO of Genworth Canada in a press release. “For those seeking to own a home affordably in urban centres, condos remain a good option.”  Source: Buzzbuzzhomes
