With the Crosstown LRT set to make the area one of Toronto's foremost transit hubs, Yonge and Eglinton is becoming an increasingly prominent high-rise cluster. As new residential density continues to urbanize the area, a number of high-profile projects are joining the neighbourhood, including the Diamond Schmitt-designed Whitehaus Condominiums. Now, a new set of renderings brings us new perspectives of the 29-storey residential tower.

The Lifetime Developments and Knightstone project tower will replace the low-rise retail stretch just south of Helendale Avenue with a high-rise tower. Featuring prime retail spaces fronting Yonge Street, Whitehaus' residential lobby will be located on the residential Helendale Avenue. The quieter lobby area will negotiate the transition between the bustle of Yonge and the established low-rise neighbourhood to the west.

Above, Whitehaus' 366 suites will range in size from 377 ft² to 1,073 ft², while a range of creatively-oriented amenities will top the podium. Appointed by Cecconi Simone, the interiors and amenity spaces feature a combination of neo-industrial aesthetics and opulent flourishes. Characterized by a monochromatic colour palette, the simple spaces are accented by luxurious couches and furnishings, as seen in the residential lobby below.

The amenity spaces will include an event kitchen, gym, ping pong lounge, and artists studio, while an expansive outdoor terrace will overlook Yonge Street. Landscaped by Janet Rosenberg + Studio, the space will feature ample seating and ping pong tables, alongside a small rooftop garden area.

Looking out over the terrace, Whitehaus' artists studio will provide residents a creative communal amenity, giving painters, sculptors, and artists of all ages a chance to express themselves in a friendly and welcoming environment.
