In the heart of Yorkville, home to Toronto's classiest shops, cafes and restaurants, construction is now in the late stages at the site of Alterra and Zinc Developments’ 36Hazelton, a 7-storey boutique condominium development containing just 19 luxury suites. With the project now topped off and cladding in the process of sealing off the building, we now have a much better idea of how this development will look upon completion.

The standout feature of this Quadrangle Architects-designed development is the restored 1928 façade of St. Basil’s Catholic School, restoration and incorporation of which has been overseen by Goldsmith Borgal and Company Architects. The yellow-painted supports which supported the façade in-situ have long since been removed, and in the time since, work on window installation and other finishing touches has given this historic school façade new life.

Though all levels of the building have been formed and cladding installation is nearing completion, there is still plenty of heavy lifting left to do around the site, which is why the project's tower crane and exterior hoist system are still in place.

After construction of the project has wrapped up, residents of the development's 19 suites will enjoy a unique collection of amenities that speak to the refined tastes of Yorkville residents, such as a wine cellar and tasting room, and a holistic spa room equipped for massages. Residents will also have access to a fitness centre with treadmills, elliptical trainers and virtual cycling systems with simulated tracks like those from the famous Tour de France.
