TORONTO | 27 Yorkville | 215m | 62 fl | 142m | 40 fl | Pro

New condo towers proposed for Yorkville, north of downtown Toronto.
These will be just south of the topped out Four Seasons hotel.

http://app.toronto.ca/DevelopmentApp...derRsn=3152985

To construct a mixed-use development comprised of 2 residential towers having a heights of 44 and 58 storeys on top of an 11 storey podium base. The total height of the north tower is 218.3 metres plus a 19.5 metres mechanical penthouse. The total height of the south tower is 124.7 metres plus a 13.5 metre mechnical penthouse. The first two storeys of the 11-storey podium consist of retail uses; floors 3 to 9 contain a Toronto Parking Authority parking garage with 802 parking spaces; and the remaining floors are residential uses. Residential parking is located in 3 levels of underground parking. In total there are 1,172 vehicular parking spaces (370 residential parking spaces and 802 Toronto Parking Authority spaces) and 1,205 bicycle parking spaces. A total of 1,166 residential units are proposed.

The height of the shorter tower seems a bit strange though.
55 story building with a height of 138.2m?
Its possible only the taller tower has a podium leaving the shorter tower at 44s.

beautiful condo. I like the roof, seems to be the sister of 1 Bloor. The Bloor and Yonge skyline is starting to organize by itself. If built, love the addition to the skyline!!!

Frigging amazing!!

I'm moving to Toronto January 2014 and and if any of you know of any potential employment opportunities in relation to surveying/estimating/construction managment i'd be very grateful for any tips.

Think I choose wisely. Toronto certainly is booming and I loved it anyway but i'm sure I'm going to love it even more when I arrive.

The glass of that podium looks very cool. I'm not so sure about the towers in that last pic...

I wish the entire tower was like the base...not that postmodernist Dubai-ish stuff.

It's not going to appeal to everyone, but I'm just glad that Toronto is finally becoming more creative when it comes to their skyscrapers. The same safe designs over and over again get a little boring. We need a few buildings with some flair. Not everyone wants minimalist lines on every single building. Variety has traditionally been Toronto's trump card, and variety is what the city should encourage.

Nice base which reminds me a bit of One57. And the tower looks good, new for Toronto.

I don't hope the stripes are so big that they take away some of the views over the city.

From the DRP (Design Review Panel) meeting – March 18th, 2014.

http://www1.toronto.ca/City%20Of%20T...rch%202014.pdf

37 Yorkville Avenue
Wallman Architects
Minto Group
Rezoning Application
2 towers – 55 and 69 storeys

Positives
- the small parkette
- pedestrian mews access to the firehall
- setbacks on 37 Yorkville seem to be working
- one Member did not have an issue with the
proposed density

Problems:
- Members expressed significant concern with the
height and scale of the base building
o it feels very massive from the perspective of a
pedestrian
o the street is only 11-metres wide
o the scale and height doesn’t align with
planning and urban design policy objectives
- the tower floor plates are too large (beyond the
recommended maximum)

Recommended Refinements:
- reduce the tower floor plates
- the base building height should come down to be
more in scale with the street, and representative of
well—established policy/public realm objectives
- study the disposition of the two towers, to alleviate
issues of overlook
- determine if parking requirements can be further
relaxed, to help lower the base even further

I liked it a whole lot more before the DRP (Dumb-down Review Panel) got their hands on it.

Looks a bit chaotic in that last render. I like the towers though.

I would like to see more buildings like this in Toronto & Canada progressing/pushing what we see as the norm.
