With Toronto recently deemed the 4th highest populated city in North America, a new claim to fame that is still difficult to fully fathom, condominium and mixed-use community development is booming. Land is extremely scarce in large cities and so, the only direction to go is up. It appears there are more cranes these days in Toronto than buildings with another condominium almost completed. York Harbour Club is targeting completion in next several months and will be another notch on the belt of Toronto's growing downtown condo portfolio. Designed by Quadrangle Architects and developed by Plaza, YHC is the third phase in the West Harbour City development which is situated in the Fort York neighbourhood just shy of the Harbourfront.
As you can see from the picture above and below, YHC is nearing completion with its 15 and 17 storey towers topped off. Almost all exterior cladding has been applied as well windows except for the final three storeys. Units in these buildings range in size from 492 ft² to 998 ft².
Above, the ground has now been leveled for the park; equipment, paving and plantings are to come. Given several years for the trees to grow in, the rendering below promises that the creatively designed space may be Toronto's latest park triumph.
