The big news at YC Condos is that on December 5th we broke ground and celebrated the start of construction. It took just under a year from launch to officially put our shovels in the ground and we couldn’t be happier about getting started! Currently we’re preparing for the demolition of the existing building at the Yonge and Grenville site location. At the start of the new year, we’ll see a major transformation at this downtown corner. The Yonge and College neighbourhood is on its way to seeing some incredible changes!

We have a new release of Skyloft Penthouses on the 64th and 65th floor and Penthouse suites from the 61st floor that are available at pre-construction prices. Visit our Penthouse Presentation Centre for a tour of our Penthouse kitchen, master ensuite and Samsung Digital Home.

Aura is just the gift that keeps on giving. As the tallest residential building in Canada, we were recently featured in Elite Traveller as one of the Top Worldwide Residential Developments - what an honour! We also love seeing your amazing Tweets and Instagrams that capture Aura’s astounding 78 storey stature so keep them coming.

The 5th floor amenties such as the multiple party rooms, games room, movie theatre, business centre and dining rooms were completed in mid November. Residents are ecstatic over these amazing amenities that boasts high ceilings, beautiful interior design and is perfect for holiday entertaining or for a Friday night game of pool. We’re continuing to work on the finishing details of the building and look forward to final completion next year.

If Penthouse living in the clouds is what you’re looking for visit our Presentation Centre and we’ll take you on a tour to the top of Aura. If you’re looking for a rental suite we have some great options available on

Our 3rd installment in the DNA series on King West is very close to completion and over 600 residents are moved in. To welcome our new DNA3 community to the buildings we recently celebrated with a holiday party where residents experienced the 2nd floor party rooms and outdoor terrace for the first time. The resident party rooms on both the ground floor and 2nd floor will officially be opening soon once some final details are in place. Residents are also enjoying some very cool art pieces recently installed throughout the main lobby corridors.

Our exciting new King West retailers including TD Bank, Sleep Country and CityMarket by Loblaws have all had a warm welcome from residents and neighbours. These retailers are definitely a great addition to the King West neighbourhood.

If you want a taste of the King West life there’s one 2-storey loft available for sale and the best part is you can move in now. If you’re interested in seeing this cool loft register on and we’ll set up an appointment.

You can also check out Canderel Rentals to explore suites that are currently available for rent.

A buzz of construction activity continues at the Bell Centre in Montreal on Tour Des Canadiens. Down below, the floors for parking levels 1-4 have been completed and our construction team continues to build the floors for parking levels 5-7. Parking ramps all the way up to parking level 5 have been poured and the core of the tower is now up to the 11th floor which is the height of the tower that we see from the street level.

Work on elevators has begun as well as masonry, electrical and mechanical work in the basements. The progress on Tour des Canadiens is really exciting to watch and its already making a giant statement with its climbing presence beside the Bell Centre.

We look forward to seeing our iconic tower grow in the New Year!

November has been a great month on all fronts for Canderel. All of our residential projects, both in Toronto and Montreal, have lots to report. If you've missed our Aura and YC Condos blogs, we’ll update you on all of their progress, along with what’s happening on King West at DNA3 and in Montreal at Tour Des Canadiens.

The most exciting news from Aura is that almost all of our residents are moved in! Aura is now occupied up to the 74th floor, which is a total of 920 residential suites - more than 97% of the tower already occupied. Wow!

The amenity spaces will be turned over for the residents’ use in November, just in time for the holiday season. The indoor amenities include a private surround-sound theatre, billiards room, video games room, media room and several party rooms and lounges complete with kitchens. Outdoor amenities include private lounging areas, dining areas complete with barbeques and heaters, 3 large outdoor fireplaces and a beautiful water feature with a living wall framing it on with side.

We’ve seen you all working out at Hard Candy Fitness Toronto, eating at the many restaurants in the building, and shopping for new pieces to add to your home at Bed, Bath and Beyond and Marshall's.

We’re also getting some international recognition, as both Aura and YC Condos were featured in Elite Traveler magazine this month as two of the top residential developments worldwide. What an honour! Are you interested in finding your next home in Aura? We have a stunning collection of penthouses still available, book an appointment with our sales team and we'll take you on a personal tour of the top floor penthouses. If you can’t wait any longer to move in check out our Canderel Rentals to see how you can live in Aura now!

YC Condos
We’ve really had an amazing couple of months bringing our brand new YC Penthouse collection to the market in Toronto. The feedback has been amazing and many of you have been giving us the ultimate proof that you love the building - we’re almost completely sold out! We have some incredible 2 storey Skyloft Penthouses on the 64th floor and Penthouse suites starting from the 61st floor available and they’re some of the most luxurious pieces of real estate in the city. Nothing else compares! Visit our presentation centre for a full tour of our Penthouse kitchen, master ensuite and Canderel Digital Home.

Our King West building is seeing the tail end of construction and is close to being completed. A majority of residents are officially moved into the building and we're continuing to welcome residents throughout November. We recently opened some of our exciting amenities to residents including the 2,000 square foot gym and yoga studio, games room with pool tables and the theatre room for kicking back with friends to catch Friday night game.

We’re also very excited to welcome our newest retailer in the building - City Market by Loblaws just opened! Now, all of our residents and neighbours can head to City Market to shop for groceries and even pick up freshly made gourmet meals.

Tour des Canadiens
A lot is happening at Tour des Canadiens! All of the excavation work has been completed and the construction team has installed all electric entries and transformers along with the underground plumbing. Having finished the plaza (ground floor) the construction team is now building the floors for parking level 2 and 3 and by Christmas they will have reached parking level 4. The parking ramps are currently being built, which will give residents and visitors access to the parking stalls. From the outside of the tower, we can see the core of the tower presently at parking level 9 which is the last parking level.

We're growing fast! Continue to watch our progress on our live construction webcam!
