Rising Soon at Yonge & St. Clair. Enlightened luxury residences up to 3,000 sq.ft
1421 Yonge Street
Welcome to The Clair. More than an intersection. It’s 4 corners and a vision. It’s a vibrant and a storied neighbourhood and it’s only getting better.
Bounded by the prestigious neighbourhoods of Summerhill and Rosedale to the south, Yonge and Eglinton to the north, and crisscrossed by a network of parks and trails, The Clair is the consummate setting for artful living. Award-winning Hariri Pontarini Architects has designed spacious wrap-around balconies that dissolve the boundary between indoors and outdoors, creating ‘terraces in the sky’ with views of parks and city skyline. Live in a place beyond the horizon of infinite possibility. Only at The Clair.
Great Gulf and Terracap Investments Inc. have assembled five properties located on the east side of Yonge Street between St. Clair Avenue and Pleasant Boulevard to develop a stunning 46 storey mixed-use tower.
Designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects, the luxury residential portion of the tower will feature more than 220 residences averaging more than 1,000 square feet. The project is marked by distinctive balconies, wrapping around the tower in a wave-like pattern. As the tower reaches the upper four levels, the balconies become expansive terraces, steps back until the building is topped off with a double-height penthouse level.
The application proposes 420 residential units in the tower, with retail space on the ground floor, to complement the urban streetscape of Yonge. It’s proposed that the tower contains 65 percent one-bedroom units and 35 two-bedroom units.
The application also asks for four levels of underground parking with space for both vehicles and bicycles. Architectural renderings show a sparkling glass tower with a green roof and an expansive communal terrace. This midtown Toronto condo is tentatively scheduled for 2021.
Details about the site plan will be finalized by the city later this year and occupancy for this midtown Toronto condo is tentatively scheduled for 2021.

Yonge and St. Clair is exceptional and almost unmatched in Toronto in terms of proximity to wealthy residential neighbourhoods. Forest Hill is adjacent and affluent South Hill, Moore Park and Rosedale are nearby. The Yonge Street subway line includes a stop at St. Clair Avenue, and an east-west dedicated streetcar line provides further transit access. And while the intersection is known for its towers, buildings aren’t nearly as tall as at other intersections in the area.
The neighbourhood was quite vibrant in the 1970’s and 1980’s when it was home to theatres, top restaurants, and several upscale retailers that might surprise those not familiar with the area’s history. Dapper and traditional Dack’s shoes once occupied the northwest corner of the intersection and a few doors north of that, multi-brand women’s luxury retailer Ira Berg operated a 9,000 square foot store at 1510 Yonge Street at the corner of Delisle Street (now occupied by New Balance Shoes). Ira Berg opened Canada’s first location for Paris-based luxury brand Celine in 1972 at 1506 Yonge Street (now occupied by a Subway restaurant), and wealthy women from nearby would arrive by car (and sometimes by limousine) to patronize area businesses. The Delisle Court retail complex, across Delisle Avenue from Ira Berg, housed locations for brands such as Bally of Switzerland shoes, Le Chateau, and later on, a Bruno’s grocery store which closed in March of 2016.
And there’s so much more to come.
