Looking northeast, a new rendering shows a fuller view of the Yonge Street frontage. Stretching north and south sides of the tower’s base, a nine-storey podium building will house a mix of retail, office, and amenity space. Framing the tower, the historic Yonge façades on either side of the super-tall volume will be retained.
YSL Residences Condos, the three-storey brick building known as the “Richard S. Williams Block” will land the podium on the south side of the site, with the stone “Gerrard Building” continuing to frame the corner of Yonge and Gerrard to the north. The north and west elevations of the Gerrard Building will be preserved, along with the west elevation of Richard S. Willams Block.
YSL Residences Renderings depict a sleek, faintly sculptural form with a smooth, glassy exterior. Fronting the corner, the existing three-storey building at Yonge and Gerrard would be maintained, with a small, angular podium volume rising above.
YSL Residences Condos features 2,212 square metres of indoor and 909 square metres of outdoor amenity space, located in a variety of places across the building: above the retail podium, at the 10th floor surrounded by the terrace townhomes, the 9th floor terrace, the top of the north tower, and along the sky-bridge. YSL Condos the residential towers cater more to the working professional, with 648 (59%) one-bedroom and 107 (9%) studio units; the remaining space is allocated in a more family friendly manner with 241 (22%) 2-bedroom and 110 (10%) 3-bedroom units.
YSL Residences,The podium’s office levels will be accessible via a commercial lobby at the northeast end of the site, fronting Gerrard just west of O’Keefe Lane (seen below). The location of the office lobby may facilitate a partnership with neighbouring Ryerson University.
YSL Residences seven below-grade levels will be given over to a 340-space parking garage and 1,058 lockers, a two-level retail space is planned underground. A knockout panel for a PATH connection is also planned on the west side of the third underground level.
At the podium levels are occupied by retail (which takes up most of the first three above-ground levels), office space, and a rooftop residential amenity space. Of the project’s GFA of 97,386 m², 9,399 m² (9.6%) is given over to retail uses, along with 11,117 m² (11.4%) of office space. The office uses take up the fourth to eighth levels, with residential units—which, at a combined total of 76,870 m², make up almost 79% of the GFA—above.
The 957 condominium suites come in a proposed unit mix of 389 one-bedroom (41%), 459 two-bedroom (48%), and 109 three-bedroom (11%) homes. Ranging in size from 538 ft² to well over 2,000 ft²—for select penthouse suites—the project’s average two-bedroom unit features a floorplan of approximately 860 ft². No studio suites are planned for the building.
Alongside a small terrace space on the 42nd floor—which gives the south elevation its distinctive notch—indoor amenities are concentrated on the 42nd and 43rd levels, where lower-level and shuttle elevators end, and upper-level elevators begin. Accessible from the 43rd floor’s residential lobby, two private elevators lead to the south-side penthouse suites.
