Situated at 181 Sheppard Avenue East, 181 East is a highly anticipated mid-rise residence coming soon to North York. The development by Stafford Homes and Greybrook Realty Partners has even attracted the attention of celebrity Russell Peters. The comedian and GTA native will join the developers at a special one-time only, digital insider event this Thursday, August 13th. Participants will get a peek at the community and a walk-through of the range of suites and amenities available. Space is limited, so be sure to RSVP online at 181east.ca.

“Russell Peters is an incredibly smart and talented Canadian icon and he really knows this city, so it was a no brainer for us to bring him in to launch this showstopping project in North York,” said Jonathan Goldman, President at Stafford Homes. “Russell’s experience as a Toronto native speaks volumes to the culturally vast audiences we’ve seen taking interest in this project. We wanted to connect on how Toronto has evolved and grown in the last few decades and how this project is offering a new way of living.”


“Russell Peters embodies Toronto and the GTA, so when I asked him to come on and speak to us and help launch this very impressive project, he made 12 or 13 jokes I can’t repeat – mainly about his family — and then said of course,” added Simon Mass, Investment Partner at The Condo Store. “Russell has said to me for a while now that he wishes that he bought into the condo market in Toronto more than he has, so there could be no better person to tell everyone not to wait and purchase at 181 East while you still can.”

Residents of 181 East will benefit from its walkable location, just 10 minutes from the bustling Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue East intersection. The area is dotted with boutique shops, services, cafes and retail stores such as the Yonge Sheppard Centre, which is home to Longo’s, LA Fitness and Winners. Across the street is the Hullmark Centre, where you’ll find a Whole Foods Market, a variety of restaurants and direct access to the Sheppard-Yonge Subway Station.


Other nearby attractions and amenities include Mel Lastman Square, Sheppard East Park and Bayview Village Shopping Centre. Highway 401 is a short drive away, providing residents with convenient access to downtown Toronto, Scarborough and Pearson International Airport.

Within the community, residents will enjoy a thorough list of lifestyle amenities, starting with a calming lobby lined with field elm wood slats, a softly lit marble concierge desk and a glass panel feature wall.

Entrepreneurs and those who work from home will appreciate the building’s co-working space, complete with open desks for collaborative work, a cozy nook with a backlit curved bookcase for reading or relaxation, and individual office spaces that can be reserved for private meetings. Meanwhile, a fully-equipped fitness studio makes it easy to stay active with both indoor and outdoor workout spaces including a free weights room, yoga studio and cardio machines.


Designed by IBI Group Architects, 181 East boasts an elegant mid-rise profile that blends harmoniously with the existing neighbourhood and streetscape. Its contemporary exterior is characterized by bold vertical lines intersected by sleek glazing and glass balconies. Playful pops of colours add visual interest, while tiered terraces adorned with greenery create a sense of vibrancy and warmth.

Inside, the condominium houses a total of 185 suites with thoughtfully-designed, open-concept floorplans and upgraded finishes curated by the renowned Johnson Chou. Large living areas and gourmet kitchens make entertaining a breeze, but are also functional with smart layouts and plenty of storage.
