This new Toronto condo will come with an urban forest out front
New plans have been released for a 41-storey condo that will sit directly across from the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto in Yorkville.
They're blocked off by a temporary structure right now, but the four brick houses at 315 Bay St. and 54A-58 Scollard St. will eventually be relocated east to make way for the tower, and transformed into retail space.
Meanwhile, the three-storey house at 54 Scollard, which sat farthest east, has already been demolished.
The development will make way for some privately-owned public space (POPS) right on the corner of Scollard and Bay.
According to the renderings submitted to the city from Foster + Partners, the POPs will feature a leafy canopy with lights, seating and a "four-part interpretive panel" that explains the historical significance of the 54A-58 Scollard buildings.
The Lanterra-owned space will be available for public use between 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, according to the future interpretive panel.
The new tower will also have some retail space on the ground floor as well as 112 condo units, mostly two-bedrooms.
There will also be four underground levels of 126 parking spaces, and amenities on the third floor terrace which will sit behind the heritage buildings.
