It’s pretty hard not to notice the massive façade retention currently underway at the site of Five St. Joseph, located on Yonge Street just north of Wellesley. The joint venture between Graywood Developments and MOD Developments is bustling along after the surgical-like precision required to deal with the various heritage properties on site. To mark the building’s progress thus far, Graywood and MOD have released a variety of units that will appeal to both those who want to be in the thick of Yonge Street and those who dream of sky-high living.
We’ll begin up at the top of the tower, where floors 42 through 44 have been released. These floors contain 33 units of various sizes and at a number of price points, offering hesitant buyers the chance to snatch up what will surely be some impressive views.
The very tip top of the Hariri Pontarini-designed tower has been reserved for the building’s penthouses, now on the market. Comprising floors 47 and 48, these exclusive units may range in size but all come decked out in top of the line appliances and finishes, offering sky-high balconies and panoramic views of Downtown, Yorkville and the various surrounding neighbourhoods.
Of more relevance to those of us that will be staying firmly grounded on the street is the revitalization of the century-old Yonge Street heritage buildings. In anticipation of the restoration, Graywood and MOD have released the Yonge Street Collection. The YSC is comprised of 14 suites that will be located on floors two and three of the heritage buildings, offering a truly unique condominium experience. Most of the suites are less than 600 square feet, however the corner suite at Yonge and St. Joseph boasts nearly 1000 square feet of living space spread across two floors. The units are designed by one of Toronto’s favorite interior design teams, Cecconi Simone.
It’s been a while since we last reported on Five Condos, a project that we’re pretty keen about by a development company that’s definitely caught our attention since launching a few years back. If you share our enthusiasm for Five and Massey check back with us tomorrow afternoon, when we’ll be posting the first part of our (very) in depth interview with Gary Switzer, CEO of MOD Developments.
