Yonge Street's stretch through North York has been the site of some impressive growth over the past several years, a revitalization which shows little sign of slowing down any time soon. Sorbara Group is now joining the party in North York City Centre with Beacon Condos, a modern 35-storey condominium development designed by Wallman Architects and Rafael + Bigauskas Architects.

The development will be built at 5200 Yonge Street, located between Sheppard and Finch and right above North York Centre subway station on the TTC's Line 1 to which it will have direct indoor access. The tower will rise from a tall three-storey podium which will feature prestige retail on Yonge Street as well as containing the residential amenities for the building.
