Today we are checking in on the progress of CHAZ Yorkville Condos. The project, being built by 45 Charles Ltd and Edenshaw Developments, is set to rise an impressive 47 storeys in the Yorkville skyline. It's the latest in a series of boutique highrises capitalizing on the appeal of Toronto's most luxurious downtown neighbourhood. Along with projects like the recently completed Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences and The Uptown Residences as well as the soon to rise One Bloor East, these towers are changing the face of the cultural and transit apex of Yonge and Bloor Streets. Below are a couple pictures of the construction in progress, taken just a few days ago by Jack Landau.

This Page + Steele/ IBI Group Architects-designed building in the spirit of the neighbourhood spares nothing when it comes to luxury, especially when it comes to its extensive amenities list. In addition to the usually expected fitness room, yoga/pilates room, and panoramic lounge area, CHAZ sweetens the deal with amenities like saunas featuring hydrospa and relaxation chairs, a gamers room set up for LAN parties with multiscreens and stocked with games, a film screening room with 3D capabilities, a private sports theatre and two hotel style guest suites. On the ground floor CHAZ will feature an expansive meeting and relaxing area in its lobby while just outside the door there is an additional lounge space featuring a two-way fire place and BBQ. Also outdoors will be a unique waterfall showcasing a dolphin sculpture. Here's another image of the construction, this time giving us a look at some of the neighbouring towers.

CHAZ features units ranging in price from $299,900 to $2,500,000 and unit sizes from a compact 400 sqft to a definitively roomier 2,400 sqft. The project is scheduled to finish construction in 2014 but in the meantime check out the rendering below to get an idea of what to expect.
