Intensification of Toronto’s Yorkville neighbourhood has brought countless full time residents to the primarily shopping district. Among the newest residential additions to the neighbourhood, Camrost-Felcorp's Cumberland at Yorkville Plaza will add 40 storeys of new life to what is already one of Toronto's most walkable, vibrant areas.

The WZMH Architects-designed condominium tower will rise to the immediate south of the the former Four Seasons Hotel at Avenue and Yorkville, currently being converted into a condominium building. At ground level, Cumberland at Yorkville Plaza will feature a porte cochere framed by a waterfall and limestone walls, as well as sculpture. Inside the building residents will find a gallery-style ground floor with lobby offering 24-hour concierge and valet services.

Upstairs, the development will include a full floor of amenity spaces designed for entertaining guests or just unwinding. Among the amenity floor features is an aquatics centre with an indoor pool and whirlpool spa which leads to an outdoor sun deck and lounge.
