Toronto's Yorkville neighbourhood remains one of the most sought-after locales in the entire GTA. With some of the country's best shopping and dining options, demand for housing in the Yorkville area remains high. While much of the condominium market demand is being met by high-rise development, many of those looking to take up residence in this affluent neighbourhood are looking for a more intimate, community feel. Alterra and Zinc Developments’ 36Hazelton provides a luxury alternative to high-rise living with it's 7-storey stature and collection of 19 exclusive suites.

The project is designed by Quadrangle Architects with restoration and incorporation of the 1928 façade of St. Basil’s Catholic School under the care of Goldsmith Borgal and Company Architects. Earlier on in the construction process, the historic façade was supported by large sections of yellow-painted steel bracing. With six of the building's seven floors now poured, much of the bracing has been removed from the front of the building.

With construction of the building's 7-storey skeleton nearing completion, we await the installation of 36Hazelton's first panels of cladding, depicted in market renderings as a clear floor-to-ceiling glass framed in thick black mullions.

Once the project is complete, residents of 36Hazelton's 19 suites will have access to a selection of amenities that reflect the posh lifestyle expected in Yorkville, including a wine cellar and tasting room.
