Situated between Yorkville Avenue and Cumberland Terrace, the design for the site includes an urban park creating a wide mid-block connection between Cumberland and Yorkville streets. The tower design emphasizes its slender qualities with vertical ribs and steps on all sides to generate elegant proportions and sky terraces. The building at street-level is animated with multi-level retail featuring great exposure to the new urban park.
A proposed 62-storey tower at 11 Yorkville Avenue in Toronto, 11 YV is designed by Sweeny &Co Architects for Metropia, Capital Developments, and RioCan Living. 2-storey building by the same team at 16-18 Cumberland Avenue.
Yorkville is one of Toronto’s most dynamic neighbourhoods. It is an eclectic mix of luxury condominium apartment buildings, commercial office towers, four star hotels, theatres, gourmet restaurants, a prestigious shopping district and picture postcard Victorian homes.
Just north-east of the Royal Ontario Museum, Yorkville is a neighbourhood steeped in history. In the 1960s, it was known as the bohemian cultural centre, a celebrated haunt of famed Canadian musicians Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and Gordon Lightfoot, as well as writers like Margaret Atwood. Today, the neighbourhood is known as an epicentre for high-end shopping, with retail like Gucci, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Dolce & Gabbana and Holt Renfrew nestling flagship stores amidst the neighbourhood’s charming streets. Yorkville’s roots in the arts remain, with many small galleries nearby, as well as the famed Toronto Reference Library, a hub for community events and programs.
The site is projected to include ground-floor retail space, office suites, and luxurious residential condominiums going up as high as 60 storeys. Floor-plans have not yet been released, but are expected to be available in the coming months – make sure to register for early access!

With a long list of design-forward iconic developments across Canada, the international beginnings of CD tell the full story. Founded by Todd Cowan and Jordan Dermer after a lengthy development career across Europe. As the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Development Officer, respectively, of TriGranit Development the two were instrumental in the development of over 10 million square feet in Europe from 1996 to 2006. Prior to this, both were executives at Trizec Properties performing asset management, acquisition and leasing across Canada.
Today Capital Developments is building on that history of success. Along with its partners, CD has embarked on a number of exciting new residential and retail projects in Toronto and Montreal where it is involved in the development of over 2,000 condominium units with complementary retail. These projects include Ma Condos, a 156-unit condominium development recently completed in Montreal, Sixty Colborne, a 281-unit development in the heart of Toronto and 150 / 155 Redpath, a 1,000-unit twin tower development in midtown Toronto. In addition, Capital Developments recently launched the Art Shoppe Lofts + Condos, a 650-unit development with 80,000 square feet of retail in the Yonge & Eglinton area. It is one of the fastest selling projects in Toronto in 2015 and is only steps from the new Eglinton Crosstown LRT – currently under construction – a $5.3 billion investment which will transform this already vibrant neighbourhood into one of the most attractive and fastest growing residential and retail locations in Toronto.
