If you’ve been up around Yorkdale lately you will have noticed there’s been a lot of excitement and development going on. Not only at the shopping centre, but also at The Yorkdale Condominiums! This project is the first phase in the 100-acre master planned community just south of the shopping mall. The 15-storey condo will be a gem in the neighbourhood, adding to the already thriving area. We’ve reached some exciting construction milestones, and thought an update might be the perfect holiday gift to our purchasers and followers.
The plan for the ‘Celestica site’ found at 844 Don Mills Road in North York has been reimagined in many different ways, and more than a few times since 2014. With the Crosstown LRT set to run right through the area, a focus on creating a dynamic, mixed-use space has become the driving force behind this development. With a new application having been submitted, the vision of the site has evolved in yet another new and exciting way.
One of Toronto’s greatest feats is its library system. Not only is it the largest public library system in Canada, but it’s the largest neighbourhood-based system in the world. With 100 libraries spanning all across the city, the city’s collection has over 12 million items in total for use by the public.
Our Library District Condos is proudly being built right beside Toronto’s 99th library, the Fort York Library! This 16,000 square foot library will be just steps away from our 29-storey condo at Bathurst and Fort York, making it a great neighbourhood amenity for our owners.
Although our neighbourhood library is one of the city’s newest, many of the other public libraries in the city have been around for a long, long time. Let’s take a look back at a few of them:

In case you missed it, we’re cooking up something pretty big for the Don Mills and Eglinton area! Plans for Celestica Lands, a new development we’re working on with Diamond Corp and Lifetime Developments, are well underway now. We’re looking forward to bringing a new and exciting community to the area!
In anticipation of our redevelopment of Celestica Lands, we’ve rounded up some of the best places within walking distance of the area and mapped them out. Everything featured on the map is within 15 minutes of the site – you’ll find restaurants, museums, parks, and so much more.
“Context has teamed up with Diamond Corp and Lifetime Developments on the redevelopment of the Celestica Lands at Don Mills and Eglinton. We look forward to working together with the team and various stakeholders on the creation of a vibrant new community.”
Howard Cohen, President – Context
