There’s an exciting new condo coming to the Yonge and Eglinton neighbourhood in Toronto – Reserve Properties and Westdale Properties announced Line 5 Condos, a residence that embraces what it truly means to be a condo dwelling urbanite.
“Westdale Properties is a long-time believer in Yonge and Eglinton. We were one of the first to invest in the neighborhood when we began our 88 On Broadway project in 2005,” says Mitchell Cohen, Chief Operating Officer, Westdale Properties. “By partnering with Reserve on Line 5, we’re returning to the community and continuing to push it forward. Communities are defined by the people who inhabit them and Yonge and Eglinton is bursting with energy. We want to harness that energy and generate something truly innovative.”
With a $5.3 billion capital investment in infrastructure and 19 kilometres of transit criss crossing Yonge and Eglinton, the area has and will continue to boom as one of the main central hubs in the city – and Line 5 is raising the bar even higher.
“The impact the new LRT will have on Yonge and Eglinton is hard for people to conceptualize,” says Shane Fenton, Chief Operating Officer, Reserve Properties. “It’s not hyperbole to say this is going to drastically change Toronto. With rapid transit in every direction, Yonge and Eglinton will emerge as the new centre of the city. As developers we have an opportunity and a responsibility to contribute to this transformation and help realize its full potential.”
Westdale, Reserve Properties, IBI, and U31 designed Line 5 to accommodate how downtown condo dwellers of today live. There will be a dedicated rideshare pick-up area, alleviating local traffic. So your UBER of Lyft will have a place to wait for you.
With more shopping being done online via Amazon, condo lobbies are dealing with overflowing parcel rooms. Line 5 has oversized parcel storage to ensure your packages are stored safely. There’s also hot and cold storage in the lobby in case you have groceries delivered!
“Five years ago we didn’t have Uber and Lyft in Toronto. We didn’t have Foodora and Ritual. Online shopping wasn’t at the level it is today, health and wellness weren’t as prevalent as they are today,” adds Fenton. “We take for granted how much our lives have changed in such a short span.”
Other amenities at Line 5 include a 10,000 square foot fitness facility on the ground floor with spaces for on-demand interactive training systems, personal training, and yoga. The yoga studio will have a view of the Zen garden. The fitness facility also features a spa with a steam room, saunas, and pool with a nanotech skylight (artificial skylight).
“Throughout Line 5’s amenities and common areas, we layered a sophisticated and dynamic mix of materials to create eclectic experiences,” says Kelly Cray, Principal at U31. “Line 5’s design is unexpected, with playful architectural undertones that bring an aesthetic that anticipates our future.”
The other amenities are on a higher floor, which include a co-working space, a social club, and a pool with a nanawall (operable glass doors) separating the indoors and outdoors. This multi-use space also has two communal kitchens, three outdoor lounges, an art room, outdoor theatre, library, and game spaces.
