Already considered one of Toronto’s most desirable and dynamic neighbourhoods, Yonge and Eglinton is about to get a whole lot better with the upcoming launch of E Condos, from Bazis, Metropia and Riocan. E Condos will be ideally situated on the northeast corner of this celebrated intersection.
The neighbourhood is attracting professionals who want to eat, play, party and live in the heart of city. They especially want to be as close as possible to this particular intersection for one very good reason: exceptional public transit — an increasingly desirable feature for Toronto real estate.
Yonge and Eglinton already has the Yonge subway line for easy access to downtown Toronto’s financial district. This will soon be expanded with the much-anticipated Eglinton Crosstown below grade LRT, adding a convenient east-west transit link.
Combined with a thriving corporate culture, a dynamic retail environment, and enough restaurants and entertainment venues to dine out on every night, it’s easy to see why Toronto’s young and upwardly mobile are flocking to the neighbourhood.
E Condos will make the most of its coveted location, with a convenient underground connection to both the transit lines and the Yonge-Eglinton Centre, a bustling entertainment/shopping complex with movie theatres, book store, supermarket and shops.
The driving force behind E is Bazis Inc., one of Canada’s prominent residential developers, renowned as visionaries who bring to life exquisite condo towers boasting world-class architecture in premium locations. For E Condos, they have partnered with the award-winning team at Metropia and RioCan. Metropia’s founder, Howard Sokolowski, has a rich 25-year history in developing residential communities, building more than 30,000 homes. RioCan is Canada’s largest real estate investment trust that owns and manages Canada’s largest portfolio of shopping centres.
E Condos’ architecture is by Rosario Varacalli, the architect responsible for envisioning the transformation of the corner with two modern towers that befit the landmark status of the location.
They will be built around a dynamic open public piazza that will unite the structures with the surrounding neighbourhood. Street level retail space and a lower level retail concourse will provide convenient access to daily essentials. The commercial area will be managed by partner RioCan.
Inside the residential space, stunning 20 and 30-foot high lobbies will provide a dramatic welcome, and will feature 24-hour personal concierge services.
The pièce de résistance distinguishing E from every other development in the city: not one, but two cantilevered pools projecting dramatically out from the buildings. The pool on one tower will perch about half way up, while the other will extend at penthouse level. Pools will be surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, for breathtaking city skyline panoramas. The adjacent E-Sky Lounges will provide stylish and convenient gathering places to chill out and admire the views.
In addition, each tower will feature another entire floor exclusively devoted to more spectacular amenities. These will include a range of stylish spaces, both indoor and outdoor, including a state-of-the-art gym, dining areas, party and games rooms, technology lounges, and more. Residents will have all-access passes to the leisure areas in both buildings. All amenity areas are by Mike Niven Interior Design, a design powerhouse that creates bold yet timeless spaces.
“E has been carefully planned to bring the very best living experience to a neighbourhood that is already one of the best in the world,” says Veronika Belovich, VP of Sales & Marketing for Bazis Inc. “We’ve taken great care to assemble a fantastic team and to get every detail perfect.”
Ranging from 400 to 1200 sq ft., suites will be available in a range of layouts: studios, 1 bedroom, 1 bedroom plus den, 2 bedroom and 2 bedroom plus den. As always, Varacalli has designed spacious units with large windows and balconies in every suite.
Suites at E will start in the mid $200s, offering exceptional value for such a premiere location.
