New  Development

YC Launch Week is Here

YC Condos Yonge at College Condos
By CanderelOThursday we will be getting ALL the details for YC Condos at Yonge and College by Canderall - this includes the pricing and floor plans.


Response has been TREMENDOUS.


Signing agreements for units will begin this Saturday. If you are interested in YC Condos - please email us at


Why Buy At YC Condos:


1) You have a child that will potentially be going to university in 5 years time - this is a great investment to hedge the cost of accommodations for those 4 years of University (or more). I recommend the 2 or 3 bedroom option as you can rent out the additional rooms to other students which subsidizes your child's education.


2) An area that will rent out even if interest rates are zero - this is  a top rental area in Toronto - it is walking distance to two universities, the hospital district, the high society of Yorkville, the financial district and it is on a subway line. There will always be people (contractors, ex-pats, students, etc) that will always need to rent even if atmosphere for buying is perfect. 
We already have 24 confirmed sales in the project and are expecting SIGNIFICANT demand.

This is one of the MOST anticipated projects of 2014. This project is all about location and I am one of a handful of agents that will have exclusive access to this project because of my Platinum status with the builder. 

Here is a video on the project:


YC Condominiums is a 63-storey glass sculpture accented by extended


balconies and one-of-a-kind amenities not found anywhere in North America.


With the extraordinary success of The Residences at College Park, Aura and now YC Condominiums, Canderel continues The College Park evolution. From lobby to penthouse, every detail has been considered and refined by Burdifilek, an international Interior and Design Firm whose impressive portfolio includes W Hotels, Holt Renfrew and Club Monaco New York.



YC Condominiums will elevate the standard of luxury at Yonge and College with incredible suite designs, stunning city views and 3 floors of luxurious amenities. YC Condominiums is strategically located on Yonge Street, in the heart of Toronto's innovation centre and surrounded by the University of Toronto, Ryerson University, MARS, the hospital district, fantastic shopping, dining, entertainment and the TTC - all just minutes from your front door.


This project will be launching at the end of January - for more information and to get on the wait list email us now. More information will be released over the following weeks prior to launch.
