Lifetime Developments and Knightstone Capital Management are ready to show off their new development at Yonge and Eglinton called Whitehaus Condominiums. The 29-storey, Diamond Schmitt Architects-designed development will rise just a little north of Eglinton at the corner of Yonge and Helendale, adding a 366 new high-rise homes to the popular area, available in studio, one, and two-bedroom models, which range in size from 377 to 1,073 square feet.
Originally submitted to the city in 2012 as a 28-storey building with 234 units on a lot half the size, the property has since been expanded from the original Yonge Street lot with more property to the west on Helendale Avenue. Earlier, 31 to 37 Helendale was also slated for a 24-storey condo tower from developer Pemberton, but the City's tall buildings guidelines would have prevented two towers going up so close together.
The new design pushes the tower to the west over the combined properties, allowing room for the 328 foot tall tower to step back from Yonge Street above the retail spaces, and then again at six, and above the ten floor podium.
Street level renderings of the podium depict two double-height levels of retail with expansive glazing meant to attract high-end shops. In addition to adding retail space, the podium levels will help anchor the development to the existing streetscape of Yonge with outdoor amenity space atop the second and tenth floors, landscaped by Janet Rosenberg + Studio.
Residents of the development will have access to interior amenity spaces appointed by Cecconi Simone, including a game room, a fitness centre, a party room, an event kitchen, an 'Artist Studio', and a ping pong lounge.
The project is currently targeted for completion in 2019.
