Toronto’s Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood is world renowned for luxury and elegance. And with designer name stores like Chanel, Tiffany and Hermès calling the area home, it’s a well-deserved reputation.
Beyond Bloor-Yorkville’s sophisticated galleries and high-end boutiques there is much more to these storied streets. Torontonians have long flocked there for the vibe, a distinctive mix of cuisine and culture that is alluring and unmatched in the city’s history.
Neighbourhoods like Bloor-Yorkville help to put Toronto on the map. They are the gold standard and, as such, they deserve residential properties that deliver the same measure of prestige. To earn its place, a development must be modern and mindful. And above all, it has to make a statement.
Under Gary Switzer’s leadership, MOD Developments made a name for itself over the past decade with statement builds like The Massey Tower and 5 St. Joseph. With its vision for the 48-storey tower at 55 Charles, MOD will again exceed residents’ needs in a bold and unconventional fashion.
“We wanted to honour the surrounding neighbourhood with a building matched in elegance and design excellence,” says Switzer. “So we assembled the finest team of designers and visionaries to bring 55 Charles to life.”
55 Charles is a feat of architectural beauty both inside and out. The architectural design by architectsAlliance, is a welcome addition to the skyline, with its vertical façade enlivened by undulating planes, both striking and sublime. The bold aesthetic carries through into the lobby, where the double-height volume plays beautifully against the warm blend of dusty gold and rich wood.
MOD Developments brought interior design team Cecconi Simone into the fold, and its vision for 55 Charles’ suites is second to none. With a range of sizes and layouts to inspire them, the award-winning designers incorporated state-of-the-art features and furnishings into the décor, achieving a space that feels luxurious, but eminently livable.
The nine-foot ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows help to fill the suites with light, accentuating Cecconi Simone’s fine design details: kitchens with custom cabinetry and innovative millwork, and bathrooms with custom-designed mirrors, vanities and storage shelving.
MOD also understands that the luxury buyer expects an amenity package that reflects their upscale, carefully curated lifestyle.
“We’ve designed 55 Charles for the sophisticated, experienced buyer,” says Switzer. “These are people who recognize the singularity of the neighbourhood and expect the same in the amenities and conveniences at home.”
To that end, 55 Charles promises over 20,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor amenity space, featuring the finest in fitness facilities, lounges, private dining rooms and roof gardens including the C-Lounge atop the tower, with views of the lake and downtown skyline, where residents will entertain and look comfortably out over one of the most exclusive neighbourhoods in Toronto.
