Less than a year after sales were launched for YC Condos, work on the 66-storey condominium tower is officially under way on Yonge Street just north of College. Canderel executives, employees, members of the design team, and purchasers at the building gathered this morning at a former branch of the RBC which will be demolished to make way for the new tower. The RBC is one of several stores and restaurants in a two-storey building on the west side of Yonge Street that have now closed or moved out in advance of the impending work.

The Graziani + Corazza Architects-designed YC Condos sold very quickly this year, and 98% of the building's 634 suites are now spoken for. A recent release of 6 penthouse units on the uppermost floors are amongst the last suites still available. The penthouses range in size from 996 square feet through to 1,514 square feet; some of them are two-floor suites with 10 foot ceilings on both floors.

The upper-most suites will be sharing the floor with Burdifilek-designed amenity spaces with some of the best views anywhere, including Lounge 64 with bar, lounge, fireplace, billiards, dining, entertaining spaces, and Aqua 66, one of the highest infinity pools in the western hemisphere with the Downtown Skyline as its backdrop.
