The skyline of the Yonge and Eglinton neighbourhood is dotted by the presence of tower cranes as a handful of new condo towers add to the landscape. A new development from Lifetime Developments and Knightstone Capital Management aims to continue that trend, with the addition of a 29-storey Diamond Schmitt Architects-designed condominium tower, being marketed as Whitehaus Condominiums.
The project will bring 366 new residences to Yonge Street, north of Eglinton, ranging in size from 377 square feet to 1,140 square feet and available in models ranging from one-bedroom to two-bedroom-plus-den. Tower suites will offer 9’ ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views of the surrounding city, while a select number of townhomes occupying a portion of the podium's Helendale Avenue ground floor frontage will provide a more neighbourhood-oriented feel.
Residents of Whitehaus will have access to a number of Cecconi Simone-appointed amenities located on the third floor, including a fitness centre, event kitchen, a multi-purpose creative artist studio, plus a ping-pong lounge and a connected outdoor space that includes a dog run. Residents will find even more amenities on the first floor, including a private lounge and a dog washing spa.
Whitehaus will be Lifetime's first project in the Yonge and Eglinton area, an area that has always been in hot demand, and is now growing even more attractive to transit-minded buyers as construction of the new Crosstown LRT line progresses. “With its unparalleled access to transit, the emergence of major retailers, the development of new residential condominiums, prominent commercial properties and the ongoing redevelopment of the RioCan Centre, Yonge and Eglinton is more connected than ever, making it a great area to invest”, said Brian Brown, Vice President of Lifetime Developments.
To help promote the project in a new and creative way, a colouring contest is being held until Friday, December 11th, called #ColourMeWhitehaus. The campaign allows you to download an illustration, colour it in, and then post a photo of it on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #ColourMeWhitehaus for the chance to win gift cards from local retailers.
