With Tridel’s 101 Erskine and Bazis’ E Condos going up at Yonge and Eglinton, there has been a lot of buzz around the intersection. There are many other projects planned for the area too, such as Minto 30 Roe by Minto, and The Madison by Madison Homes.
Right at the intersection of Yonge and Sheppard, we have Tridel’s Hullmark Centre under construction, and Emerald Park by Bazis across the street. Does this look familiar? Is Yonge and Sheppard on the same road to greatness that Yonge and Eglinton is currently traversing?
Tridel’s Hullmark Centre
We all know MintoMidtown for giving the Yonge and Eglinton area its kick start; it is very possible that Tridel’s Hullmark will trigger the same kind of rejuvenation. Hullmark will be comprised of 684 units, stand 49 storeys tall, and contain a wide variety of amenities, including a video lounge, a billiards room, fitness facilities, an outdoor terrace, and so much more. A good sign that the Yonge and Sheppard area is on the rise is that Hullmark is sold out!
Emerald Park by Bazis
Emerald Park is a two tower project, which will rise as high as 42 storeys, and be comprised of 450 units. Emerald Park will also have a wide array of amenities, including a swimming pool, an expansive rooftop terrace, and fitness facilities; and to no surprise, it’s also sold out!
The Yonge and Sheppard Area
The infrastructure surrounding Yonge and Sheppard is very similar to what Yonge and Eglinton was like about a decade ago; lots of low-rise, main TTC routes running through it, and an abundance of retail. With this kind of environment, it’s not surprising that there are two high-rise developments going up right on the intersection.
With Hullmark and Emerald Park alone, there will be over 1,000 new units at Yonge and Sheppard in the next few years, and each one will be occupied. With a rise in population of this magnitude, the area will need more retail, more neighbourhood amenities, more everything.
So, keep an eye on Yonge and Sheppard, it just might be the next hot spot to grace Toronto’s north end. Stay tuned for more on Sheppard Avenue, another one of our street walkthroughs is coming soon!
