8 Wellesley Residences on Yonge is a 55-storey condominium with 466 residential units. This building includes 283 one-bedroom units, 138 two-bedroom units, and 45 three-bedroom units.
The first five floors will be a podium section, incorporating existing architecture and heritage facades from buildings on the property. This will bring a rustic, heritage feeling to the street level. This podium will incorporate a number of shops and retail opportunities along the street level as well, and also make room for the building’s 20,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity space.
The tower’s unique shape will allow for multiple balconies and terraces. This means that shared outdoor amenity space will be split among a number of floors – 4, 40, 54, 56, 57, and 64.
Residents of 8 Wellesley will enjoy underground parking, as well as a gorgeous residential lobby and exclusive entrance.

The most famous, and busiest road in Toronto, Yonge Street, is one of the longest streets in the world, and begins at the shore of Lake Ontario, and carries all the way north to Barrie. Other major streets in Toronto, Dundas, Bloor, Queen, King, and University form a grid foundation for which the entire city’s transit network rests. Travelling across the GTA is simple even just from these main streets which carry off in every direction towards the eastern and western reaches of the GTA, like Scarborough, Durham Region, Etobicoke, Peel Region and Halton Region to the east and west, as well as York Region in the north.
8 Wellesley is located in a singularly convenient crossroads in Toronto. With Wellesley Station just across the street, it’s a simple walk to connect with the TTC. You can hop onto the subway in five minutes from your front door to just about anywhere in the city. Wellesley Station is part of the TTC Subway Line 1, which is directly downtown. From there, the entire GTA is at your fingertips! Take the TTC Subway Line 1 or Line 2 to Union Station, or up north, east or west to all the distant corners of the city.
Another crosstown option is the College Street car, which is just a block south and travels east-west along College and Carlton streets, from High Park to the Danforth.
CentreCourt Developments is a relatively recent emergence on the Toronto Condominium scene, but they’ve made quite a splash since their founding in 2010. With projects already completed like INDX, Karma, and Peter Street Condos all within the downtown core, CentreCourt has established itself as a fixture of the Toronto skyline.
Convinced the Toronto housing market won’t slow down any time soon, CentreCourt is pursuing new projects in the city with verve and excitement. Focusing on details, communication and hands-on decision making, CentreCourt is eager to continue to prove itself as one of Toronto’s most trusted developers.
Ever since its founding, CentreCourt has worked hard to produce homes and communities of the highest standard, and Prime Condos seems to be a continuation of their dedication to excellence.
It’s projected that very soon Toronto will have the most high-rise condos in the world, and young professionals continue to find the downtown core and West End an attractive spot for starting a family and making a home. Toronto’s growth continues it’s upward trend, and so will Toronto’s most vibrant region. Nowhere is this likely to be more true than the Downtown Core, and with neighbourhoods like the Garden District, Cabbagetown and Church & Wellesley going through unprecedented change and construction, now is an excellent time to look into investment in the area.
Condo prices in Toronto sit healthily in the high $400K range, and continue to grow by about 10% every year. With this robust and ambitious plan, CentreCourt is looking to build a community that will stand the test of time right in the heart of the city. And with so many draws, like Universities, Campuses and Businesses so close by, this will always be an attractive area for students and young professionals looking for an easy commute.
Church and Wellesley is in high demand. Great sky-scraping condominiums have radically changed the area over the last twenty years, and this densification is only expected to continue. With such character and charm, the area is a sought-after place for people of all types to set down roots, and an attractive place for students to rent during their post-secondary careers. This makes investment in homes in the area a wise investment.
