At 55 Charles MOD Developments’ elegant condominium tower is a Yorkville state of living

Like its celebrated surroundings, where high fashion and luxury rub shoulders, 55 Charles is a prime example of exceptional design and architecture. Standing tall in the heart of Bloor Yorkville, its soaring presence makes a grand statement. Billed as one of the city’s most sophisticated addresses, it introduces a new level of elegance in condominium living.

55C is another exceptional project by MOD Developments, the developers behind the award-winning Massey Tower, FIVE St. Joseph Condominiums and Waterworks. Rising to a commanding 48 storeys, it’s been designed by the internationally renowned architectural firm of architectsAlliance.

55 Charles’ geometric silhouette, its dramatic pinstriped vertical façade and building block pattern of balconies spell pure perfection. Popularly known as 55C, this supremely elegant condominium addresses every little detail of life in a big busy city. Its thoughtfully designed suites, fabulous amenities, and exquisite features and finishes blend seamlessly to provide a holistic and harmonious living experience. The one place where all this comes to life is in the development’s immensely stylish interiors.

Designed by the acclaimed Cecconi Simone, the interiors feature natural woods, dusty golds and a mix of sand and stone. Beginning with the dramatic lobby, 55 Charles’ public spaces have an infinitely cosmopolitan aura and possess an inherent calming quality. With two singularly spectacular floors, more than 20,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor amenity spaces, 55 Charles is designed to pamper, soothe and inspire. From a curated wellness facility, equipped with the latest equipment and technology to a series of plush lounges, it exudes a draw to experience something special.

One of the highlights of 55 Charles is the C Lounge. Spread out like a golden dreamscape, overlooking the grand city, the spectacular C Lounge is the city’s highest amenity space. With its double-height ceilings, rich furnishings, and spectacular views, it’s exquisite, to say the least. From a romantic dinner to moments of quiet contemplation, this is a sophisticated universe of calm.

The suites of 55 Charles are anything but ordinary. A chic interpretation of less being more. From thoughtfully conceived one-bedroom, efficient two-bedrooms to grand three-bedrooms, the development offers a variety of floorplans to suit different needs and wants. With high-end finishes, contemporary fixtures, and highly functional layouts, they are a haven of modern design. The meticulous attention to detail is what makes them special.

Whether it’s a 536-sq.-ft. one-bedroom or a 1,006-sq.-ft. two-bedroom, every suite is designed to maximize functionality and livability. Efficient space planning provides good proportions and well-thought-out sightlines. The transition from one space to the other is cleverly designed, as seen in the master bathroom that can be closed off to serve as a powder room, to satisfy the everyday needs of residents. Custom millwork allows for built-in storage, closets, and pantries to enhance the ease of living.

Most suites offer spacious outdoor spaces to extend the living area. Some two-bedroom suites offer a free-standing tub on a large exterior window in the master bath. Special features like a custom built-in dining area, entry closet integrated into the kitchen millwork reflect how people truly use their space in a modern condominium.

55 Charles’ unbeatable Bloor Yorkville location allows residents to enjoy the city like never before. Steps from the many internationally-renowned designer stores, sought after restaurants, cosy bars and cafes, museums, as well as the subway, everything that Toronto has to offer is within easy reach.

A symbiotic collage of design and luxury. Calm and convenience. Style and sophistication. 55 Charles is a place inspired.

Sugar Wharf Condominiums

The Sweetest Life You Can Imagine Coming Soon by Menkes

Picture yourself on your next vacation; enjoying your morning coffee while overlooking a spectacular view of the water; starting the day with a good sweat at the gym or taking a dip in the pool; soaking up sun on the terrace; and later, enjoying a barbecue with friends.

Now imagine if this was your home. Life at Sugar Wharf Condominiums will be like living in your own luxurious resort on the water. With a brand new condo gallery opening soon at its One York Street complex, Menkes Developments Ltd. is introducing an exceptional new home opportunity in Toronto’s Downtown Waterfront district with Sugar Wharf Condominiums.

These luxury residences will be part of the new Sugar Wharf community, which will encompass 11.5 acres and include offices, restaurants and shops, a two-acre park, and a new school. Once complete, Sugar Wharf will be the largest mixed-use development on the Toronto Waterfront; home to 7,500 residents and 4,000 office workers. With the water’s edge just steps away, and easy access to all the conveniences and entertainment options the city has to offer, this phenomenal location represents both an escape from the hustle and bustle of urban life and the opportunity to experience every dynamic facet of downtown living. So whether it’s taking a relaxing evening stroll on the boardwalk, or cheering on the home team at a basketball game at the Scotiabank Arena, there will be something for everyone.

Toronto is home to one of the longest urban shorelines in the world. Over a 46-kilometre stretch from Rouge River in the east, to Etobicoke Creek in the west, the waterfront is home to beaches, parks, concert venues, markets and art galleries – and Sugar Wharf is in the middle of all the action. The comprehensive project will seamlessly connect residents and office workers to all parts of the downtown core through the PATH, which provides direct access to Union Station, the largest transit hub in the Greater Toronto Area, with connections to the TTC subway, GO Train, Via Rail, and the UP (Union Pearson) Express. With Sugar Wharf’s PATH extension, it will be possible to walk indoors from the waterfront, all the way to Toronto’s world class Financial District. Equally connected to the city as it is to nature, Sugar Wharf will revolutionize how Torontonians live, work and play.

Speaking of play, Sugar Wharf’s stunning amenities, designed by award-winning interior design firm Cecconi Simone, will take condominium living to the ultimate level. From entertaining guests, and keeping the kids busy, to enjoying some quiet time and relaxation. Whether you’re living independently, or looking to grow your family, Sugar Wharf has every facet of your lifestyle covered, with amenities so inviting, you’ll forget that you’re at home and not an exclusive resort.

The building offers future residents and their guests a variety of social gathering spaces including: a games lounge, private theatres, party rooms, and a bar/lounge area. And families with children will have more to do than they could ever dream of, with a list of amenities that rivals any children’s facility, and completely eliminates the hassle of bundling up the kids in cold weather, in search of local indoor entertainment. Residents will have access to an art/hobby studio, an arts and crafts room, music room, virtual reality room, hammock lounge, and children’s playroom. Guests from out of town can also take advantage of two luxurious hotel-styled guest suites.

The landscaped outdoor space, designed by NAK Design Group, is equally as exciting as the interior. It features a reflective pool, a barbecue and fire pit with adjacent dining area — taking alfresco dining to the next level — and a play area for the little ones. No matter what you’re doing outside, you will be able to enjoy spectacular views of the city and water.

Residents will also be able to enjoy living their most active lifestyle. In addition to being connected to the waterfront boardwalk and everything it has to offer, the development will include access to a 25,000-square-foot state-of-the-art fitness centre equipped with cardio machines, free weights, a pool, basketball court, and fitness studios for group classes.

With today’s hectic urban lifestyle, everyone wants (and needs) the opportunity to slow down once in a while to relax. Living on the waterfront at Sugar Wharf Condominiums will give future residents that chance to take time for themselves and recharge every single day. For any busy urban professional, this will truly be the best of both worlds.

Lifetime Developments Launches New Panda Condos in the Heart of Toronto

Times Square in New York. London’s Piccadilly Circus. The Old Town Square in Prague…These are just some of the world’s great pedestrian centres that have come to define the world’s great cities.

While many of us would include Toronto on any listing of great international urban centres, those of us who know and love ‘the 6’, recognize that in many ways it was the opening in 2002 of Yonge-Dundas Square that cemented the city’s place among the world’s best. Since its opening, the Square has hosted countless public events, performances and art exhibitions, establishing itself as a defining characteristic for our city and a global icon.

Lifetime Developments, Panda Condos, Toronto

“It’s a world class destination, in a world class city,” says Lifetime Developments’ Brian Brown. “Yonge and Dundas is the heart of the city. Whether you’re visiting from Scarborough or Scotland, no visit to Toronto is complete without time spent at Yonge and Dundas.”

Brown should know. His company, Lifetime Developments, is one of Toronto’s most successful condominium companies. From Liberty Village to the Financial District, and from King West to Yonge and Eglinton, Lifetime has earned a reputation for developing award-winning communities in Toronto’s best locations.

“There’s nothing more important to the success of a new condo project than its location,” says Brown, as he and his team – including Cecconi Simone, Turner Fleischer Architects and Baker Real Estate – prepare to launch Panda Condos at 20 Edward Street… steps from Yonge-Dundas Square.

Lifetime Developments, Panda Condos, downtown Toronto

A 30-storey tower, defined by its glass three-storey podium, bold vertical lines and two-tone palette, the development sits directly across from the neighbouring Ryerson University Campus, while offering unparalleled views of the downtown core, midtown Toronto, and Lake Ontario.

Featuring 555 extraordinary suites, designed by Cecconi Simone, they are both modern and memorable. Offered in a range of layouts – from an efficiently designed 356 square feet to an expansive 1,462 square feet – which includes one, one-plus-study, one-plus-den, two, two-plus-study, two-plus-den, and large three-bedroom designs. With floor-to-ceiling windows and large, spacious balconies, the dynamic energy of the surrounding neighbourhood will flood the units, highlighting Cecconi Simone’s distinctive design touches.

Panda’s kitchen designs include custom cabinetry, Euro-style stone countertops, tile backsplashes and an ultra-modern, sleek appliance package including integrated refrigerator, exhaust fan and dishwasher. Elegant and timeless bathrooms offer custom designed cabinetry, hand-selected countertops and sinks, decorative light fixtures and an accessory package chosen by the design team.

Lifetime Developments, Panda Condos, Toronto downtown

The site itself boasts both a perfect Transit and Walk Scores (100) and high Bike Score, offers convenient PATH access, and unparalleled proximity to Ryerson University, U of T, and the Eaton Centre.

“While the location offers an abundance of choice for residents looking for chic retailers, internationally-celebrated universities, hot restaurants and cool night life, hospitals, libraries and ample transit options, Panda is committed to matching the area’s dynamic lifestyle options, with a range of condo amenities that exceed expectations,” adds Brown.

Among the amenities offered at Panda includes unique facilities geared towards the modern student or young professional, including study spaces, gaming room, fitness and yoga studio, theatre and sports facilities.

“While it may have taken the opening of Yonge-Dundas Square to cement Toronto’s international reputation as a great destination to visit,” says Brown, “Panda Condos will establish the location’s reputation as a great location to live.”

Cindy Crawford, supermodel and international fashion icon, is the new global brand ambassador for Silestone.

Silestone officially introduced its new Eternal Collection in Canada last month during the Interior Design Show in Toronto. Featured in Cosentino’s award-winning booth designed by internationally acclaimed Canadian design firm, Cecconi Simone, the new collection was brought to life through the exhibit’s contemporary applications including a display wall, cladding and a floor-to-ceiling fireplace surround. The Eternal Collection was well received as an ideal alternative to natural stone.

Made up of seven exotic stone-inspired colours, the collection pays homage to some of the world’s most sought-after stones and marbles and offers exquisite natural aesthetics paired with the great durability of Silestone.

Eternal Calacatta Gold captures the essence of Calacatta marble and features large grey veins with a touch of elegant gold detail atop a pure white base.

This innovation modifies the surface at the molecular level enhancing colour intensity and adds extraordinary lustre. N-Boost also makes the cleaning and maintenance of Silestone surfaces easier than ever thanks to its enhanced water repellent property. As with all Silestone natural quartz surfaces, the Eternal Collection has a high resistance to impact and scratching, is manufactured in large formats and can be incorporated in various home applications.
