Developer Camrost-Felcorp is in the process of redeveloping the former Yorkville Four Seasons site, converting the previous location of the hotel into a condominium tower, while also adding a new condo tower to the south called, Cumberland at Yorkville Plaza, along with a third tower, a new office development at 135 Yorkville Avenue. While progress is the furthest along on the hotel conversion, there is still plenty of activity to document at the adjacent sites.

To the immediate south of the former hotel tower, below grade levels are taking shape at the site of the 40-storey, WZMH Architects-designed Cumberland at Yorkville Plaza. The new development will rise on land formerly occupied by the Four Seasons' large podium structure, which was taken down in late-2012 to make way for the new development.

Since the completion of the demolition stage, the project has been fully excavated, and work is now under way on the project's first upward construction for the building's below-grade levels. The space where the former podium once connected with the base of the hotel tower is still clearly visible, with the connecting areas either left open to the elements or hide behind tarpaulins for the moment.

To the east of the former hotel tower, demolition work is under way at the east side of the former hotel podium, in preparation for construction of an 11-storey, 50,000 square-foot condominium office building, also designed by WZMH Architects.

The condo-office building will feature fully customizable floor plates ranging in size from 4,500 square-feet to 5,700 square-feet, and full floors are being offered for prices ranging from $3.7 up to $4.9 million.
