More details of Diamante's Diamond Condominiums on Yonge are emerging as marketing of the 30-storey tower continues. While our previous editorial provided a first glimpse into the amenity spaces and interior decor, we now take a closer look at the project's amenities, with a particular focus on the showpiece private garden designed by Ferris + Associates.
While a church will neighbour the tower to the east, a spacious private garden will take up the south side of the block. Taking advantage of a much quieter low-rise residential neighbourhood west of Yonge, the "park-like" ground-level garden is designed as a relaxing amenity for residents.
A new aerial rendering of the garden shows an extensively greenscaped space, with the various programming delineated by a series of articulated stone walls. Featuring open green space, a dining/entertainment area (equipped with BBQs), and a rose garden, the outdoor amenity is designed as both a social space and a private retreat.
Overlooking the garden, the ground-floor party room offers a space for indoor entertainment. Designed by Scott Shields Architects and Diamante Development's in-house team, it space features high ceilings and expansive, wrap-around windows. The warmly appointed party room is designed to create a spacious ambiance, with a full kitchen allowing for catered events.
Meanwhile, the stone walls that shape the programming and aesthetics of the garden are also seen along the lobby entrance, which—like the party room—is given a note of character by the warm wood tone.
The 385-unit project is located at the north end of the quickly growing North York City Centre neighbourhood. Set to rise just west of Yonge Street, Diamond Condominiums will share a block with the recently reconstructed St. George's church, which faces out onto Yonge Street at Churchill Avenue.
We will keep you updated as the project continues to move forward, and the start of construction nears. In the meantime, make sure to check out our dataBase file for more information, linked below.
