September 11, 2014… Toronto — Catering to a new era of urban luxury and prestige, Minto Yorkville Park redefines an iconic entranceway to the city’s most elite district. Building on an impressive legacy in the neighbourhood, Minto launches a new residential address in Yorkville for the third time, arriving at the celebrated intersection of Bellair and Cumberland.
Boasting an impressive walk score of 100, Yorkville Park offers unparalleled access and convenience, introducing this coveted address amongst existing Minto award-winning projects, such as the Prince Arthur residences, noted as one of Yorkville’s premier luxury condominiums, and Minto Yorkville apartments in the heart of the posh village at 61 Yorkville Avenue.
“Given Minto’s inspiring connection with this address, we wanted to keep pushing boundaries. Minto Yorkville Park will be an iconic sculpture at the heart of the city, its façade draped in a floating glass veil set on a stunning streetscape podium of complimentary limestone and polished black granite that will resonate with the scale and textures of Yorkville,” said Sol Wassermuhl, President, Page+Steele/IBI Group Architects.
Climbing 25 storeys, residences in the sky will offer phenomenal views of the city, while boutique units on lower floors will overlook the Village of Yorkville Park and provide close proximity to the 5,700 s.f. of retail space below that will house the high-end boutiques and restaurants that have made Yorkville famous.
Mere steps from Bay Station and nearby Yonge Station, residents have immediate access to the epicenter of Toronto transit. In a city bogged down by traffic congestion, this address guarantees residents one of the quickest routes through the city and an enviable slate of cosmopolitan amenities at their doorstep.
From the word-class restaurants like neighbouring Sassafraz along Cumberland and Sotto Sotto on Avenue, to the high-fashion retail on Bloor Street West’s Mink Mile, the recipe for a luxurious lifestyle abounds. Afternoons are spent along Bloor West’s culture corridor for visits to the ROM or the Royal Conservatory of Music.
“Living in Yorkville represents the pinnacle of urban prestige and residents will simply enjoy the best Toronto has to offer. Minto Yorkville Park will be at the heart of it all. It will truly be an impeccable home,” says Amanda Wilson Watkins, Vice-President of Marketing and Sales for Minto.
Interiors crafted by IBI Group Architects embrace art deco’s geometric flourishes, with subtle curves, textured stone, and antiqued gold layered throughout.
“We wanted to cater to the sophistication surrounding us by introducing a modernized art deco style, favouring luxury with a more current appeal,” says Jennifer Lem of IBI Group Architects, known for such prestige addresses as Pine Street in New York and their work with internationally revered brands such as Hewlett-Packard.
Featuring the ever-popular external bedrooms, city lights paint your evening backdrop, with unparalleled views seen through floor to ceiling windows. Interiors extend onto spacious balconies, inviting outdoor entertaining.
Showcased in the state-of-the-art sales centre, sumptous kitchen and bathroom vignettes complement dynamic floorplans, encouraging purchasers to imagine their refined Yorkville lifestyle. The stunning kitchen features a chic lighting sculpture overhanging a custom-built island, while a sophisticated hood spotlights a cooktop and a paneled fridge and dishwasher disappear from view. Fully customizable designer palates cater to the purchaser’s unique taste, casting polished chrome against beautiful quartz countertops and cabinetry of matte wood grain or solid finishes.
Gorgeous bathrooms are appointed with polished stone and porcelain, adorned by gold faucets and accessories. A deep soaker tub invites relaxation and the walk-in shower is fitted with a soothing rain showerhead and handheld shower. A choice of custom palettes compliment the elegant aesthetic, ranging from whites and charcoals to taupes or chocolate browns.
Amenity spaces augment the neighborhood’s ample entertainment and dining options. An outdoor terrace designed by noted landscape architect Paul Ferris will offer intimate seating areas around a luxurious full-height fireplace. A spacious indoor entertainment lounge, complete with a chef’s catering kitchen, connects to the terrace, available year-round.
Residents will enjoy private workouts in a fully outfitted 2,000 s.f. fitness centre, including a space for personal trainers and a spin and stretch room. After the workout, residents can refresh at the spa or return to the in-house business lounge that acts as a personal home office.
With the highest number of LEED® certified residential projects in Toronto, Minto receives numerous annual green building awards from leading industry authorities such as OHBA, BILD, EnerQuality, and BOMA. Minto Yorkville Park continues this sustainability commitment, set to achieve LEED Silver certification with superior construction and features that cut down on energy bills and reduce residents’ environmental footprint.
