Project

The Plan

A comprehensive plan addressing both the Yorkville Avenue frontage and adjacent neighbouring tall buildings.

The Building

11 Yorkville will be a mixed-use building, including residential and retail designed as 62 floors and 212 metres, featuring 676 units, inclusive of 81 residential rental replacement units.

Public Realm –
Designed by You

25% of this site – 705m² will be designated as a combination of public park and publicly-accessible private open space, which is more than the City requirement. We look forward to collaborating with the community on the design of the park.
