Uptown Toronto’s revitalizing modernization continues with Azura Condominiums, an ambitious new project proposed by Capital Developments. Slated to occupy a series of adjacent sites near the dynamic and conveniently located intersection of Yonge Street and Finch Avenue in the uptown Toronto community of North York, Azura Condos will offer a complete range of suite options. The community is designed to appeal to a broad cross-section of residents, from young urbanites and first-time buyers to sophisticated and successful professionals with lofty lifestyle standards.
Azura Condos Specifications and Community Details
Initial proposals call for Azura Condos to feature a soaring residential tower in addition to a limited number of lofts on first floor with terraces on first floor. A stunning 32-storey high-rise with 358 units. A two-storey podium base will join these elements to complete the community, which will occupy sites located at 15, 19, and 21 Holmes Avenue just south of Yonge and Finch.
Artist conceptions depict a subtle, minimalist podium base supporting a contoured tower dominated by strong horizontal lines, smooth panes of sleek glass, and a tasteful, traditional colour scheme based around light greys and off-whites. Current proposals call for a total of 339 suites, not including the eight townhomes that will be adapted from a row of six connected townhouses currently situated on Holmes Avenue. Four additional townhomes will join the eight connected townhouse suites, creating a total of 12 townhouse units that will be clustered around the site at street level in a U-shaped
The reported suite mix breaks down as follows:
- 1-bedroom and 1-bedroom plus den: 240 units
- 2-bedroom and 2-bedroom plus den: 80 units
- 3-bedroom: 38 units
A striking penthouse suite will top the tower component, and every residential unit in the complex will have a private balcony or terrace. A beautiful, professionally landscaped courtyard , with amenity spaces situated in the community’s podium base. The podium will also house a beautiful residential lobby and reception area.
Azura Condos Toronto also includes plans for a two-level underground parking garage for residents and visitors. Indoor bicycle parking will be available in a controlled-access room connected to the podium’s second floor.
Enjoy Everything the Yonge & Finch Area Has to Offer
One of this projects most appealing features is its prime location near several major pieces of transportation infrastructure. Residents will be able to walk to the Finch TTC subway station in less than five minutes, and from here, transit riders can rocket downtown on Line 1 (Yonge-University-Spadina). Subway service between Finch and Union Station takes about half an hour without requiring any line changes, making for a hassle-free commute. GO Transit also serves the Yonge and Finch intersection, with a bus station offering convenient links to regional intercity commuter buses along with
numerous TTC bus routes. These features combine to give the neighbourhood a sparkling Transit Score of 100/100.
Motorists have easy access to area highways, with entry points or interchanges to the 400, 401, 404, and 407 all located within just a few kilometres. These routes allow drivers to zip around the GTA, head into cottage country, zoom to Pearson International Airport, or make their way to other destinations throughout Southern Ontario with ease.
The project site also features a Walk Score of 95/100, meaning that all day-to-day essentials sit within easy walking distance and residents can easily meet their needs without the use of a car. Banks, pharmacies, cafes, pubs, bars, and a wide range of affordable independent and franchise restaurants fill the neighbourhood’s streets, and families with school-aged children enjoy close proximity to excellent private and public schools. York University is within walking distance, while Ryerson University, OCAD University, and the University of Toronto are all directly accessible on the subway, with door-to-door travel times in the range of 30 to 40 minutes.
All in all, Azura Condos will deliver the fast-paced excitement of city living while simultaneously situating residents on a peaceful, quiet, out-of-the-way side street.
Meet the Azura Condos Development and Design Teams
Capital Developments is spearheading development of this condo community. This world-class property development firm was co-founded by two accomplished real estate professionals in Todd Cowan and Jordan Dermer, who oversaw the development and construction of more than 10 million square feet of premium property during a successful stint in Europe with TriGranit Development. Mr. Cowan served as TriGranit’s CEO, while Mr. Dermer acted as the company’s Chief Development Officer. The partners leveraged their passion for real estate and their immensely valuable combined experience to found Capital Developments in 2006.
Today, Capital Developments focuses on high-growth areas in Toronto and Montreal, where the company has a stake in more than 2,000 residential units. The firm also embraces the ongoing trend toward mixed-use development, with many of its projects integrating commercial and residential elements to make better, more intelligent use of urban space. In 2015, Capital Developments launched the Art Shoppe Lofts + Condos community in Toronto’s high-profile Eglinton Avenue corridor, which went on to become one of the year’s fastest-selling and most coveted new condominium communities. Propelled by this and many other high-profile successes, Capital Developments has quickly earned a reputation as one of the most reliable and capable metropolitan builders in Canada.
Capital Developments chose the forward-thinking, visionary architectural professionals at IBI Group to lead the design of the Azura Condos community. Founded in 1974, IBI Group has grown into a global powerhouse with offices in more than 60 major cities around the world. Despite its international reach, IBI Group retains an intensely local focus, and is a renowned champion of sustainable, progressive approaches to building
design. The firm’s architectural team includes nearly 500 registered architects and certified Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) professionals, whose combined talents have earned dozens of prestigious international awards and accolades.
