A luxurious towering condo is in the early stages of development in the prestigious Summerhill neighbourhood.
49 Jackes Avenue Condos is a 29-storey high-rise condominium by Lifetime Developments in Toronto. This pre-construction project will be located at 49 Jackes Ave, near the intersection of Yonge Street and Jackes Avenue, just south of St.Clair Avenue E.
The proposed 29-Storey condo will consist of 217 luxe dwellings that contains a mix of one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units.
49 Jackes Avenue Condos will consist of a 27-storey tower that sits on a two-storey podium.
The 15,577 m² edifice, dedicated solely to residential space, is planned to house a total of 217 condominium units, in a mix of 104 one-bedrooms, 90 two-bedrooms, and 23 three-bedrooms.
Amenities in this building will include a spacious four-level underground parking garage with 55 spaces per floor, 7 of which are visitor parking spaces. And due to a push from developers to use cleaner transportation methods, 217 bicycle spots have been proposed; 195 spaces for residents and 22 for visitors. In addition, a pedestrian walkway has been planned-out to promote more walking as a means of transportation and a direct route to take public transit.
Keeping up-to-date with condo trends, 49 Jackes Avenue plans to incorporate distinguishing exterior greenery into their designs. It will feature a vertical strip of ‘sky gardens’ extending from the second floor up to the roof along the building’s west facade. These 9-by-4.06-metre notches are expected to house pairs of balconies, opening up at every third floor into spacious terraces.
The stunning cladding of this condo in particular is worth mentioning; the two-storey podium will include a mix of masonry, bronze metal finishes and vertical fins extending from the glazing. Additionally, the tower’s north, south and east facades will have unique undulating walls of glazing, spandrel panels, and inset balconies. The west facade will display the signature ‘sky gardens’. All in all the vibrant colours will be a great addition to the list of condos lining Yonge Street.
Location & Neighbourhood
49 Jackes Avenue Condos will sit at Yonge street and Jackes Avenue, just south of St.Clair Avenue East. Notably this location is in the prestigious neighbourhood of Summerhill in Toronto.
Summerhill is widely recognized for its affluence and unique styled homes, some dating as far back as the 1800’s. The neighbourhood has surely withstood the test of time and continues to be one of the most coveted real estate areas in the GTA.
Consisting mainly of detached family homes, contemporary townhomes, and low-rise upmarket condominiums, the neighbourhood’s history remains a vibrant part of the community through its small collection of original turn-of-the-century Victorian and Edwardian houses.
The condo in specific will sit at an excellent location, just a short walk away from Yonge Street and will overlook the David A. Balfour Park atop the Rosehill Reservoir. The surrounding neighbourhood is also home to other green spaces such as Ramsden Park and Robertson Davies Park. Notable schools found in the vicinity include The York School, The Arabesque Academy, and Cottingham Junior Public School.
