Sitting at the northeast corner of Avenue Road and Yorkville Avenue, this project occupies a prime site in one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods. Empire has proposed a 30-storey, mixed-use building, consisting of a tower and three-storey podium.
The podium will house retail space on the first and second floors, and condo amenity space on the third, in the form of an expansive, east-facing outdoor terrace. The tower will feature 74 residential units with an unusually large number of three-bedroom floorplans. In total, the tower will contain seven one-bedroom units, three two-bedroom units, 60 three-bedroom units and four four-bedroom units.
179 parking spaces are proposed for the development in five levels of underground parking, including 156 for residential use, 23 for visitor use and 11 valet spaces. 102 bicycle parking spaces will also be incorporated. The development will feature 17,742 square-feet of indoor amenities located on the third and fourth floors, plus 8,460 square-feet of outdoor space including the aforementioned outdoor terrace, which will visually separate the tower from the podium and offer views of a proposed new public park.
The site of 33 Avenue Road is currently occupied by a selection of mixed-use heritage buildings, forming what is known in the area as York Square. The developers are proposing to retain these heritage facades and incorporate them into the building’s podium, while the contemporary tower will rise above, featuring a glazed façade. The tower will be articulated with a series of stepbacks, with balconies along the east and west facades.

Five-star dining and a wealth of galleries and upscale services are also easy to find, with many restaurant patios spilling out onto sunny sidewalks. it scores a 95 on its Walk Score and a 95 on its Transit Score.
