New Construction in Toronto: Emerald Park Condos If you’re one of the lucky people that will be living at Emerald Park one day (soon!), this will be your view from the top. We took a trip to Yonge and Sheppard to explore what’s going on and we got a special glimpse at downtown Toronto from […]

We love our construction updates, even if it appears that there isn’t too much going on. This may look like an empty space to you, but to us it looks like progress!

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: one of the best things about our future project 1 Yorkville is that it’s so close to the Royal Ontario Museum.
