Construction has risen above grade at the Four Seasons, and moving fast! While not the best picture, it can be seen from this Bay Street picture that construction is progressing, and the project has risen above ground. There are three cranes onsite and lots of action constantly happening.
The Four Seasons Hotel at Avenue (between Cumberland and Yorkville) has been the icon of life for more than 25 years in Toronto. With the development of a new luxury hotel in the Yorkville neighbourhood, the internationally renowned collection of Four Seasons Private Residences is being introduced to Toronto.
The Four Seasons Private Residences in Yorkville was launched by Menkes in early 2007 at the corner of Bay Street and Yorkville Avenue in the heart of the Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood.
Private residences / suites range in size to over 9,000 square feet (penthouse) and will be accessed from a private courtyard. The Residences will have 24-hour Concierge service and private elevator access. The residents of the building will also enjoy Four Seasons services and amenities including the restaurants and bars, valet parking, in-room dining and access to housekeeping service as well as an extraordinary Spa and Fitness Centre on the seventh floor.
The mixed use development will consist of two buildings, a 205 metre (55-storey) hotel-residential tower at the northeast corner of Bay Street and Yorkville Avenue and a 125 metre (30-storey) residential tower on the south side of Scollard Street east of Bay Street.
The 55-storey tower would will sit atop a terraced 6-storey podium building, which will occupy the entire Bay Street frontage on the site.
The 55-storey tower would consist of a 23-storey, 265-room hotel and the remaining 32-stories above the hotel floors consist of 150-unit residential tower. The second to the fifth floors would accommodate ballrooms, banquet rooms and meeting rooms for the hotel. At the sixth floor level, there will be a fitness facility and a swimming pool on a rooftop terrace overlooking Scollard Street.
The 30-storey tower would contain 180 units.
