Since we first introduced Lifetime Developments and Knightstone Capital Management's Whitehaus in October, the Yonge & Eglinton condominium has been making its presence felt on the Toronto market, with a recent VIP Launch giving brokers an early look at the scale model and floorplans of the 29-storey development.
Designed by Diamond Schmitt Architects, the 366-unit tower will bring studio, one, and two-bedroom suites, ranging in size from 377 to 1,073 ft² to the growing neighbourhood. A double-height retail podium fronting Yonge Street will add to the area's burgeoning retail scene, while a wealth of ongoing developments—such as the neighbouring luxury rental building Montgomery Square now under construction to the north—are transforming the neighbourhood into an increasingly dense high-rise cluster.
Targeting a 2019 completion, Whitehaus is set to feature interiors appointed by Cecconi Simone, as well as landscaping by Janet Rosenberg + Studio. The building's amenities will focus on creative and interactive spaces and include a game room, fitness centre, a party room, an event kitchen, an 'Artist Studio,' and a ping pong lounge, amongst others.
A look at the scale model gives us a fuller idea of what to expect from the finished project, with photos from the VIP Launch providing a more three-dimensional view of the building.
With the tower and residential podium stepped back from the retail space at street level, Whitehaus will meet the Yonge streetwall with a comparatively low-rise frontage, preserving the character of the retail strip while adding density to the area.
With Whitehaus' public launch upcoming in 2016, we will make sure to keep you regularly updated as the project continues to progress. In the meantime, additional information and renderings can be found in our dataBase file for the project, linked below. Want to get involved in the discussion?
