New skyscrapers of the stature of the 98-storey Yonge Street project in preconstruction are garnering major attention of the press, critics, and citizens. The response to conceptual drawings has been more than favorable. The landmark YSL Residences on Yonge at Gerard is the brainchild of Toronto builder Cresford Developments. With the developers partnering with architectsAlliance, a new jewel of a mixed used complex is about to grace the lively, historic neighborhood in keeping with its character.
The architectural firm has many major projects to its credit including 2444 Yonge, 18 Yorkville Condos, 150 and 155 Redpath, 16 York, and Cumberland Terrace. While they specialize in institutional and academic structures, the YSL condominium project is well within their purview. A community ono the scale of the residences requires foresight and vision. Cresford has definitely not taken on more than they can chew. Modern urban design is their hallmark as is the selection of ideal downtown locations. The new project will be a standout among others in its category for its use of technological advances and the latest in contemporary concepts.

Cresford shares the same philosophy as architectsAlliance with the noble goal of transforming existing neighborhoods into dream locations or urbanites of all ages. Their expertise in urban high-rise living results in projects beyond the norm. It is not an anachronism to place a vast mixed-use master plan community in an historic region known for its quaint lifestyle. These progressive firms are helping to change the face of the city for the better. Witness The Clover on Yonge, The Residences of 33 Yorkville, Casa 2 Condos, 1000 Bay Condos, Casa, Halo Residences on Yonge, and Lofts 399. Another major redevelopment continues the revitalization plan that city fathers are embracing.
Cresford, the developers, hand in hand with architects and interior designers, is utilizing the latest technological advances in linear sculptures posing as high-rises. The YSL Residences are clearly a landmark among other iconic competitors. Adding to the city’s population is easy with projects of this scope. It bodes well for the local economy. Cresford has done its part in advancing Toronto’s residential inventory while transforming its already magnificent skyline. Extraordinary tall buildings will always be associated with the developer whose existing groundbreaking projects are destined to only grow in fame and stature.
