The Gloucester on Yonge is a 50-storey high-rise condominium under construction on the southeast corner of Yonge and Gloucester Street in downtown Toronto. The development by Concord Adex was developed by Cresford as The Clover on Yonge before it went into receivership in spring 2020. After restructuring, Concord re-launched the project under a different name.
The builders say it will be the first tower in the country to benefit from “biospace virus and bacteria mitigation systems,” which deliver cleaner and safer indoor spaces through improved airflow and filtration in high-traffic areas. Residents don’t need to touch anything from curb to suite thanks to mobile access to major entry points, common areas and elevators.
Work on the site began in 2016, when an existing retail block was demolished to make way for construction. A brick heritage property on the south end at Yonge and Dundonald streets was also demolished, however, its west and south façades have been preserved and incorporated into the new building’s podium. Once the site was cleared in early 2017, shoring and excavation work began, followed by the installation of two tower cranes later in the year.
The structure now stands at full height, having topped off earlier this summer. The cranes have been removed and much of the exterior cladding and glazing has been installed. The heritage property on the southwest corner has been rebuilt and retains its dark red brick façade and slim, rectangular windows.
Occupancy is scheduled for March 2022, and when complete. The Gloucester on Yonge will offer 528 suites ranging in size from 324 to 1,530 square feet. Amenities include a fitness centre, zero-edge swimming pool and an outdoor lounge.
