An application to permit a 29-storey residential Condominium in the Bloor and Yonge street neighbourhood has been submitted to City council.
The area just south of Canada’s , most famous intersection Yonge and Bloor, is located on the corner of St Mary and St. Nicholas Streets.
Anyone that has “happened” upon St. Nicholas St. with all the original and reproduction Victorian Heritage homes, will find it very different and pedestrian friendly.
New Condos like Crystal Blue , The Uptown Residences and U Condominiums are all new projects in the general area. Casa Condos and the Bloor Street Neighbourhood Condos are just East of this project.
- Manulife Centre -51 Floors
- The Uptown- 48 Floors
- Crystal Blue-34 Floors
- U Condominiums (2)-55 Floors
I really do not think that this high-rise Toronto Condo will change this neighbourhood as much as others propose. Already several high Condos are in the immediate area on Bay St. and the Manulife Centre (1972) really couldn’t be much bigger and has yet to change the neighbourhood in 37 years.
Just perhaps, this new Condo development will be a positive anchor to the Heritage community of St. Nicholas Street.
Have you ever noticed that Hollywood directors like to wash down the streets before shooting the scene? In the above picture you will have to guess:
- Did I have the Streets washed down by the City?
- Did It Rain?
- Did I have a Hollywood Director help in his scene?
In doing some research on this post I noticed the size of upcoming Bloor area Condos:
- Uptown-48 Floors
- X Condominiums-45 Floors
- Casa-45 Floors
These are huge Toronto Condos, try and look up from street level at Casa Condos!!
What surprised even me, was that The L Tower Condos are showing 55 Floors, thats going to be really high at Yonge and Front!
Its is refreshing to see the past come together with modern Condo Towers.
