This new condo project is in a neighbourhood with an urban feel, yet still removed from the downtown core.
500 Sheppard Avenue East Condos is a new high-rise condominium development in North York. This pre-construction project is located at 500 Sheppard Ave E, near Bayview Avenue and Sheppard Avenue East in the Willowdale neighbourhood. Once complete, the project will feature 2 towers standing 35 and 39 storeys tall. One will front Sheppard Avenue East and the other towards Bayview Ave.
This condo is an excellent choice for busy commuters who take public transit. It is near two TTC subway stations and a GO Train Station.
500 Sheppard Avenue East Condos in North York will complement the bustling streetscape of Sheppard Avenue yet mesh with the many upscale single-family homes in the area. Floor plans will come in various layouts to suit a wide range of living styles. The proposal calls for 928 residential units with layouts in a mix of the following:
- 693 one-bedroom units
- 140 two-bedroom units
- 95 three-bedroom units
The finer details highlight a 35-storey building as the Western Tower, the 39-storey building as the Eastern Tower, while the two towers are linked at their base by a 4-storey podium.
Vehicle access to the site will still be possible through the two existing driveways; Sheppard will be located at the westernmost part of the frontage, and Bayview will be located at the northernmost part of that frontage. Both driveways will lead to 291 underground parking spots with 186 spots for residents and 101 for visitors, plus 4 spots for retail shoppers. 703 bicycle parking spots will also be available at the building.
IBI Group Architects are designing 500 Sheppard Avenue East Condos. Early renderings show towers with a stately look, inset balconies framed by black and white column features and complimented by a bronze-coloured base. This design will provide an elegant yet playful building frontage.
What’s more, the upper ground floor will include amenities and community space with additional indoor amenities and offices on the second floor. Between the three buildings, there will be a number of lobbies for residents and a separate office-space entrance in the Western Tower.
As we wait for more details regarding the specific indoor and outdoor amenities to be housed here, be sure to register with GTA-Homes to receive all the latest details as they become available.
