Pictures & Floor Plans (if available)
One Bedford is a super luxury and upscale project located on Bloor St, where the Annex meets Yorkville. Half of the suites start at 700 K (2006), with some as big as 2900 sq ft. Purchasers can even combine units. This project serves the demands that most developers haven’t been addressing – the well off empty nesters selling their detached homes for maintenance free lifestyle. Bloor St reminded the design team of Chicago’s Michigan Ave and New York’s 5th Avenue, where high end retail and residential real estate on one side of the street and parks and city museums on the other. This in mind, the architects have mixed modern and historic components reminiscent of the grand apartment buildings in America’s big cities. This 32 storey, 262 suite building will sit on an 8 storey podium with high end shops blending into the streetscape. Common areas and suites have been designed with colours and materials in a calming atmosphere. John Lyle’s, one of Canada’s renown architects of the 20th century, studio will be relocated to the courtyards. The façade of the studio will be used as an entrance to a café. Amenities will be located on the 2nd floor and will include an indoor pool, whirlpool, party and meeting room, billiards, yoga, and an outdoor terrace.
