Introducing an inspiring new lifestyle in the heart of downtown Toronto, where contemporary architecture reaches new heights, where the city unfolds outside your front door, and where the sky is your neighbourhood.
Celeste Condominium is an architectural pilar of contemporary expression rising 40 storeys high above the sky, presenting stunning views of the city at large. At street level, history defines the building’s roots with a brick – clad heritage facade embraced by retail and open public space. Inside a plethora of lifestyle amenities await ensuring you’re living your best life. Above you and all around feel the connection to true downtown living.
Celeste Condos will be located beside two low-rise buildings that are used for office space and also considered heritage sites. These buildings will be retained and will also enhance the employment opportunities in the area. This proposal is set to demolish an existing and unused building that is currently sitting in the development site. This unused building will be replaced with a 39-storey high-rise that will offer a thriving new set of residential, retail and office opportunities for the area.
This development will include 39,751 square-feet of office space on the first four storeys followed by indoor and outdoor amenities dedicated to the fifth floor. Residential units will start above the 5-storey podium.
The ground floor will also hold the proposed 3,178 square-feet of retail space to bring in foot traffic from the vibrant streets. The residential units will be divided between:
These units will range in size to suit the needs of anyone, no matter their lifestyle. Investors can expect these suites to approximately range from 303 to 880 square-feet. Amenity space will also be provided with over 8,000 square-feet of indoor amenities and over 3,300 square-feet of outdoor amenities.
The entire fifth floor will be dedicated to the amenities and we can only expect a wide-range of amenities to suit anyone from children to young adults. There will also be an outdoor terrace overlooking the fifth floor. This development has so much to offer its future residents. Stay tuned as we update this page with more information once it becomes available.
