Yet Another Iconic Cresford Landmark on Yonge Street
There are few main streets worldwide that combine the luxury, glamour and sophistication worthy of a global destination. New York’s Fifth Avenue and London’s Bond Street come to mind. Increasingly, Toronto’s Yonge Street is being included in this elite league, thanks in no mean measure to Cresford Developments.
Over the last decade, Cresford has put Yonge Street on the world map through its innovative architecture, fashion-forward design, sophisticated living spaces and signature attention to detail. One after another, Cresford’s iconic condominiums in the Yonge and Bloor corridor have transformed this neighbourhood into Canada’s most valued and treasured real estate district. All of Cresford ‘s condominiums are situated at the epicentre of diverse, vibrant, cultural hotspots. Residents enjoy easy transit and subway access, and are mere minutes from the waterfront, entertainment and financial districts.
Cresford’s unique strategy of associating with leading global luxury brands as well as celebrity architects and design gurus has yielded one great landmark after another. Starting with the CASA trilogy, quickly followed by the dynamic VOX, the bejeweled Clover and the Baccarat-inspired Halo, Cresford has not only made a lasting impact on the Yonge and Bloor corridor, it has elevated the neighbourhood to world-class status.
Now Cresford is proud to announce its most groundbreaking project ever, YSL Residences. Coming soon to Yonge and Gerrard, the proposed 98-storey mixed-use tower will be the tallest residential building in Canada. For a project of this scale and vision, Cresford has tapped the expertise of one of the world’s most highly regarded architecture firms, New York based Kohn Pedersen Fox, renowned for designing the tallest towers in various countries.
KPF’s portfolio includes Lotte World Tower, the tallest in Korea (2015); the International Commerce Centre, the tallest in Hong Kong (2011) and Tour First, the tallest building in France (2011). Celebrated worldwide for their design excellence and innovative buildings, KPF will complement Cresford’s commitment to quality, design and luxury, and the partnership will deliver a new landmark building that will further raise the profile of Yonge Street and put Canada on the world stage.
Initial renderings for YSL depict a sleek, slender, sculptural tower rising above a multi-storey podium at 363- 391 Yonge Street and 3 Gerrard Street East. Distinguished by clean lines and an iridescent facade, the tower will be anchored by high-quality retail that will connect it to the bustling vibrant neighbourhood. This is Canada’s premier business, shopping, educational and leisure district, and Cresford’s YSL Residences will be the defining beacon that will set this community apart.
Cresford’s newest project is poised to become an iconic landmark on Toronto’s skyline. Register now at YSLresidences.com to be among the first to know more about this exciting opportunity.
