YSL Residences, Canada’s tallest address and Yonge Street’s monumental new Cresford landmark. The epitome of luxury living, designed to elevate the fortunate few who will call it home. 

The proposed 98-storey mixed-use tower at Yonge and Gerrard will be the tallest residential building in Canada. For a project of this scale and vision, Cresford has tapped the expertise of one of the world’s most highly regarded architecture firms, New York based Kohn Pedersen Fox, renowned for designing the tallest towers in various countries. Celebrated worldwide for their design excellence and innovative buildings, KPF will complement Cresford’s commitment to quality, design and luxury, and the partnership will deliver a new landmark building that will further raise the profile of Yonge Street and put Canada on the world stage.




Alongside a small terrace space on the 42nd floor—which gives the south elevation its distinctive notch—indoor amenities are concentrated on the 42nd and 43rd levels, where lower-level and shuttle elevators end, and upper-level elevators begin. Accessible from the 43rd floor’s residential lobby, two private elevators lead to the south-side penthouse suites.

The Core Downtown Location With Yonge Street Address
YSL Residences Condos Toronto
Looking northeast, a new rendering shows a fuller view of the Yonge Street frontage. Stretching north and south sides of the tower’s base, a nine-storey podium building will house a mix of retail, office, and amenity space. Framing the tower, the historic Yonge façades on either side of the super-tall volume will be retained.
YSL Residences Condos, the three-storey brick building known as the “Richard S. Williams Block” will land the podium on the south side of the site, with the stone “Gerrard Building” continuing to frame the corner of Yonge and Gerrard to the north. The north and west elevations of the Gerrard Building will be preserved, along with the west elevation of Richard S. Willams Block.
YSL Residences Renderings depict a sleek, faintly sculptural form with a smooth, glassy exterior. Fronting the corner, the existing three-storey building at Yonge and Gerrard would be maintained, with a small, angular podium volume rising above.
YSL Residences Condos features 2,212 square metres of indoor and 909 square metres of outdoor amenity space, located in a variety of places across the building: above the retail podium, at the 10th floor surrounded by the terrace townhomes, the 9th-floor terrace, the top of the north tower, and along the sky-bridge. YSL Condos the residential towers cater more to the working professional, with 648 (59%) one-bedroom and 107 (9%) studio units; the remaining space is allocated in a more family-friendly manner with 241 (22%) 2-bedroom and 110 (10%) 3-bedroom units.
YSL Residences, the podium’s office levels will be accessible via a commercial lobby at the northeast end of the site, fronting Gerrard just west of O’Keefe Lane (seen below). The location of the office lobby may facilitate a partnership with neighbouring Ryerson University.
