It was noted that the sculptural form of the curvilinear design would give the project a distinct identity, from both far away on the North York City Centre skyline, as well as from up close. It was suggested by members that this development could be the one to elevate this part of the city in terms of architectural integrity, design, and environmental qualities if the team carries through by designing at a standard that this corner should demand. The applicants stated that they are designing to Toronto Green Standard Tier 1, and in response the panel members urged them to go far beyond that, describing it as a minimum environmental standard which needs to be surpassed.
4800 Yonge Condo parking garage would be built to take into account unique below-grade site conditions due to the presence of the TTC’s Y track which allows out of service subway trains to transfer between Line 1 and Line 4. The west Y track branches off the Yonge line and curves on a northwestern trajectory through the site, with levels P2 and P3 to be built above the track but levels P4 through 6 would only be built west and south of it. The northeast side of the residential tower essentially follows the edge of the subway tunnel below.
