World-renowned museums and concert halls, chic lunch and dinner venues and unique haute-couture flagship stores enhance the lifestyle that can only be experienced in the most sought-after locations of world-class cities.
Toronto has very few of these neighbourhoods and the one that is known all over the world is Bloor-Yorkville. For the sophisticated and discerning buyer who understands elegance and the good life, this is the most desirable area and there is no more fitting residential destination in Bloor-Yorkville than MOD Development’s new condominium development at 55 Charles.
Bloor-Yorkville has long been the playground of Toronto’s cultural elite, meaning that the finest museums, restaurants, clubs and boutique shopping venues are within a short walk from 55C’s doorstep. Residents can reach out and touch the heart of the city.
“The Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood is unmatched in terms of style and sophistication,” says MOD CEO, Gary Switzer. “So, we were tasked with putting together a team that could design our building with the same exquisite touch combining art, architecture and design.”
The striking tower, designed by the award-winning firm architectsAlliance and poised to rise 48-storeys near the city’s main crossroads of Bloor and Yonge, is a beacon of sophistication and minimalist luxury. The vertical façade is enhanced by undulating planes rising above Charles Street, anchored by a richly appointed double-height lobby of rich stones and woods that welcomes guests.
That sense of welcome extends beyond the lobby and up into the suites, which are truly ideal for entertaining. 55C has a range of suite layouts and sizes, each carefully designed to maximize living and entertaining space while integrating features and finishes that enhance everyday life. The unique kitchen design reinterprets the traditional condominium kitchen, and includes custom built-in millwork seating, shelving and tables that are ideal for entertaining friends and family. State-of-the-art appliances by Panasonic (including induction cooktops) will ensure guests are well-fed.
And while 55C is perfectly suited to accommodate a busy social calendar, MOD has made sure to incorporate into the building the amenities and facilities that help to serve an active, healthy lifestyle.
MOD President, Noorez Lalani explains: “A modern condo development is no longer simply a place to eat and sleep. We learned in our previous projects like Massey Tower and Five St. Joseph that our residents have come to expect that a MOD building will not only serve their fitness and health interests but inspire and foster them. 55C certainly exceeds that expectation with its variety of indoor amenities and its state-of-the-art fitness facilities.”
The condo includes over 20,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor amenity spaces. Residents can enjoy the most up to date fitness facilities and lounges and extend their entertaining beyond their suites, by making use of the many party rooms, private dining rooms and catering facilities.
The C-Lounge, located on the top of the building on the 49th floor, includes a spectacular roof garden, along with indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces, while boasting an incredible view of this storied stretch of the city. It’s the perfect place to relax and meditate on the perfect marriage of living arrangement and lifestyle.
