We’ve put so much effort into making sure the unique qualities of YC Condos would be recognized as a force to be reckoned with in the Toronto condo market when we first launched in January 2014, and it worked! Just recently, YC Condos was awarded the High Rise Project of the Year at the 2015 BILD Awards and we couldn’t be happier.

The BILD Awards are an annual ceremony that honours the hard work of industry leaders and highlights successful projects all over Toronto. Over 1,100 builders, developers, sales, and marketing professionals attended the awards ceremony to help pay tribute to this year’s nominees. The High Rise Project of the Year Award is undoubtedly one of the most prestigious awards in the real estate industry which is why we are so proud that YC Condos received this significant honour.

As with any of our projects, we put a lot of time and effort into making sure YC Condos has the best architecture, interiors, location, and amenities, to make it a sought-after building to buy and live in in the city.

With over 1,000 submissions to 46 categories for the BILD awards this year, it’s a testament to our passion in building stand-out developments that YC Condos has been recognized amongst a number of other great high-rise projects that are going up in Toronto right now. We’d like to give a big thanks to all of you who voted and have supported our project from the beginning!

Building a tower of this size is a long process and we’re at the tail end of it with many of our residents now living in the building. Aura’s construction will be wrapped up far before 2015 ends so stay tuned for some exciting announcements in the next few months.

Aura has also made the international newswires already this year. The building has solidified its spot as the 19th tallest building completed in 2014 and the only one in Canada on the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’s list! It has been such a great experience marking our spot within the skyscraper community and putting Canada on the map map when it comes to architecture and construction.

If you want to experience the true meaning of sky high living, we can take you on a personal tour of Aura's Penthouses - the highest Penthouses in the city! Visit or call our Presentation Centre Presentation Centre to book your Aura tour.

YC Condos just up the street from Aura, at Yonge and College is also making some great strides already this year. The biggest of which came after our official groundbreaking ceremony in early December. Just over a month later on January 13, our construction crew began demolition on the buildings that were formerly on the Yonge and Grenville site. After just 2 weeks, the buildings were completely demolished. It was a whole new corner of Yonge St. just waiting for new changes to happen!

We’re now in the midst of shoring and excavation, which are the next steps in the construction process, and will begin the foundation for the building. We’re planning for 5 underground levels of parking and when we spoke to YC Condos’ construction manager, she told us this step will take about 6 months, at which time we’ll be installing the crane and making our way back up. What an exciting time at YC Condos!

If you’re interested in living at YC Condos, we still have a great selection of Penthouses and Skylofts available. The 2 storey Skyloft Penthouses are some of the highest in the city on the 64th and 65th floors. For more information you can visit us at our Presentation Centre.

Our DNA3 buildings in King West are looking great and we’re close to completing the square lighting detail on the exterior of the towers. Once it’s completed, it will be a unique architectural addition to the buildings and this will add our signature to the King West corner.

Don't miss out and check out the amenity space at DNA3 right now! We have a theatre room where you can enjoy watching movies on a big screen, work out and break a sweat in the fitness gym, book the party room and games room to enjoy year round - nothing else like it in King West!

We’re also getting really excited for spring so that we can open up our second floor rooftop terrace! This incredible outdoor space is connected to both towers and features semi-private lounges, dining areas, barbeques, cabana beds, a sundeck and a misting station. Get read for some South Beach or LA vibes!

The beginning of spring brings big news for the Tour des Canadiens. We are proud to announce that the first 12 floors have been built! The completion of the 10th and 11th floors in early to mid-March marked the start of construction of the residential portion of the tower and all of the amenities. These include the party rooms, the lounge, the business center, the gym, the spa, the yoga room as well as the terrace and the pool.

Construction is moving along quickly and we’re currently working towards completing the 14th floor and expect to reach the 20th floor by June.

All levels of the parking lot (P1 to P8) as well as P9, which holds most of the individual lockers, have been completed. The exterior façade of the parking levels is currently under way with the installation of the precast granite panels which give the parking lot its distinct polished look.

The core of the building, which houses four elevators, two staircases as well as the mechanical and electrical shafts, has been poured up to the 18th floor. By May, two more floors will be added. Installation of the elevators has also commenced. Stay tuned for more updates!
