Great Gulf’s at it again – creating yet another head-turning sophisticated high-rise condominium residence in downtown Toronto. Offering luxury living and some of the best views in the city, Yonge + Rich is a 50-storey tower that will rise at 25 Richmond Street East, only a block east of Yonge Street. Talk about a prime Toronto location! Both the Financial and Entertainment Districts are right there, along with the Eaton Centre, subway and PATH System.

  1. 1. 2 “Architecture is a social act and the material theatre of human activity.” –Spiro Kostof 1936 - 1991, leading architectural historian & professor
  2. 2. 5 World-class living, in a world- class city – Yonge + Rich from Great Gulf brings you the best of both. This soaring, stunning 50-storey structure is situated not only at the epicentre of downtown Toronto’s vibrant cultural district, but in the financial heart of the country. All at your doorstep. YONGE AT HEART. RICH IN POSSIBILITIES.

  5. 5. 10 11 Within a short walk of your front door at 25 Richmond Street East, there is everything a thriving, modern city can offer you. Mere blocks away, enjoy the excitement of professional sports, major concerts and more, at two of the city’s most important venues – Air Canada Centre and Rogers Centre. Whichever way you look, a cornucopia of retail awaits you underground in the PATH, or on bustling Yonge Street, or at Toronto Eaton Centre. Savour the foods of the world at the St. Lawrence Market. Celebrate the opening of Luminato at Dundas Square, or catch the newest cinematic gem at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. And if you just have to leave all of this behind, you are minutes away from the subway and Union Station, and in close proximity to Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport, as well as the city’s network of major arteries. The city beckons.

  8. 8. 17 Since the 1890s, number 26 Lombard Street has been a treasure to be discovered in the commercial hub of the city. This four storey heritage building which forms part of the Yonge + Rich site is an exquisite example of Richardsonian Romanesque Revival architecture, popular in France and North America in the late 19th century. The façade features massive circular arches in alternating red and buff sandstone, impressive rusticated stone lintels and a range of decorative brickwork. To preserve an important element of the city’s past, this historic building will be restored and made part of the shimmering Yonge + Rich development. Preserving the Past.
  9. 9. “let us, while waiting for new monuments, preserve the ancient monuments. Let us...inspire the nation with a love for national architecture.” –Victor Hugo 1802 - 1885, French Poet and Novelist

  11. 11. 2322 “It must be tall, every inch of it tall. The force and power of altitude must be in it, the glory and pride of exaltation must be in it. It must be every inch a proud and soaring thing.” –Louis Henry Sullivan 1856 - 1924, Renowned American architect ELEVATING ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN.

  13. 13. 27 Rich architectural details reflect and reinterpret the themes of the heritage façade below. The ascending tower epitomizes the best of contemporary design and the artful vision of acclaimed architect Peter Clewes, of architectsAlliance. The metal cladding of the broad podium sets off the heritage brick and stone façade of the 19th century commercial building on the block. The tower, sheathed in clear and patterned glass, contrasts distinctively with the podium – and, interestingly, with one another. The regular pattern of translucent glass in the northwest tower dissolves into a pixilated composition of vertical and horizontal panels across the southeast tower. This visual play is original among Toronto’s multi-tower high-rise residential developments – and helps set Yonge + Rich apart from the many unimaginative condo projects that crowd the city’s downtown core. This innovative and engaging architectural narrative extends into the breathtaking double-height lobby that echoes the awe-inspiring exterior, while the glazed full-height tower-to-tower link fosters the feeling of “vertical community” within the building.

  14. 14. 28 29 The essence of the spirited exterior architectural design and the spacious elegance of the interior common spaces, is abundantly evident in every aspect of each Yonge + Rich suite. What might be considered upgrades in many buildings are provided as standard features and finishes, including, engineered hardwood flooring, customized Burdifilek kitchens with stainless steel appliances and stone countertops, and bathrooms with elegant under- mounted porcelain sinks. The elements of air and light play a key role in every suite design. Floor-to- ceiling windows flood each space with natural light, revealing unprecedented vistas of the city and the lake. Expansive balconies – ranging in size up to 500 square feet – act not as mere add-ons, but as extensions of the interior space. The seamless transition that blurs the line between indoors and outdoors creates new horizons for entertaining or relaxation. As much as each suite can be your portal to the life in the city, it can be your heavenly retreat from it, as well. Glorious views.

  17. 17. 3534 Yonge + Rich is not just a collection of condominium units. Rather, it is a community – and a cornerstone of this community is Movement Haus, the programmed full-service fitness centre that occupies the south half of the 5th floor of the property, encompassing nearly 5,000 square feet. Much more than the standard-fare condo gym or workout room, Movement Haus is your entry into the maintenance of your health and wellness and an integral component of the benefits of your ownership. Movement Haus incorporates a full slate of amenities and services, including personal training, holistic nutrition coaching, yoga, pilates and massage therapy, as well as acupuncture, chiropractic services and physiotherapy. A welcome respite where you can relax and recharge, Movement Haus will enrich and enhance your life in the city. Rejuvenate.

A Virtual Concierge, with an app for your smart phone or tablet, will enable you to: Browse and book many of the property amenities. Need to reserve the club room? Want to know what the pool hours are? It’s all just a click away. View public areas around the property. Check how crowded the gym is, before venturing to the elevator.
