The Selby Launches to Platinum AgentsOctober 4, 2014
Cityzen have lifted the lid on their brand new condominium project "The Selby" in a project they highlight as "Decidedly Different".
The project is located at Sherbourne & Bloor just a few short steps from the Sherbourne Subway Station in a neighbourhood ripe for growth. The Selby is located nearby the very popular "James Cooper Mansion" condominium by Tridel where resale values average $614 per square based on the last 20 sales (at the time of writing).
The Selby rises 49 Storeys and features a red brick facade with unique architecture as is to be expected from Cityzen. The architecture integrates the 130 year old heritage Gooderham Mansion at the base of the tower and helps give the building a "new meets old" feel.
The building features a four storey podium that houses many of the building amenities which feature (but not limited to): gym, rooftop pool, party room and several outdoor lounges.
The superstar team behind The Selby include the developers: Cityzen, Fernbrook and Diamondcorp (the developers which have been involved with projects such as: L Tower, Absolute Condos, Garrison Point among many many others), international architecture firm BKL Architects and interior design by Johnson Chou.

Cityzen Reveal Renderings for Clarion Hotel Redevelopment ProjectJuly 22, 2012
Cityzen announced earlier this year that they had purchased the Clarion Hotel nearby Bloor & Sherbourne and had hired Chicago based architecture firm BKL to come up with a design that will "depart from the usual architecture" of the city.
The Clarion Hotel Redevelopment will feature a stunning new condominium tower at approximately 50 storeys tall. The project will feature a unique orange design and will stand toe-to-toe with Tridel's James Cooper Mansion
Naturally this had us standing up and taking notice; Cityzen are no strangers to going above and beyond when designing their condominium projects and are the proud developers of two of the most talked about buildings in the GTA: L Tower (designed by Daniel Libeskind, who also designed the new ROM in Toronto and the new One World Trade in New York) and Absolute Condos (designed by Beijing based MAD Architects).
Clarion Hotel is located nearby Bloor & Sherbourne which is a neighbourhood we have discussed in detail as an area on the rise. Tridel's recently completed "James Cooper Mansion" was the beginning of a turnaround of the much maligned St. James Town neighbourhood.
Cityzen and Tridel will be joined by another of Toronto's leading developers - Lanterra who also own a large parcel of land in St. James Town at 609 Sherbourne. Lanterra plan to develope an incredible 1,800 new suites across 4 mega towers ranging between 46 and 56 storeys.
Bloor & Sherbourne is an area undergoing massive change and is an area that we have had our eye on for some time. Despite the area's troubled past, it has all the makings of a hot neighbourhood including excellent transit access (along the Bloor line and just steps to the Sherbourne station), excellent vantage point for views of Toronto and green space to the North (Rosedale valley) and now, three of the top developers that Toronto has to offer.
Specific details on this project are scarce, but TalkCondo will be first in line with information as it becomes available. To stay in the loop, complete the registration form below!
