What a year it has been! As 2021 comes to a close, we’d like to take a look back on the past year and all the progress we’ve made. We’re so proud of all of our communities – each with its own unique design, attention to detail, luxurious amenities and prime locations within the City of Toronto and Greater Toronto Area. From selling out of some new home and condo communities to launching several new sites, here’s a look at what we’ve accomplished this year.
In 2021, we launched our exquisite 8 Wellesley condominium residence in partnership with Centre Court. The launch was an incredible success and the first phase sold out quickly. 8 Wellesley is a high-rise condominium development located at Yonge and Wellesley in the heart of downtown Toronto. Designed by IBI Group and GBCA Architects, 8 Wellesley will be a 50-storey tower with an expansive 5-storey podium. Located near Yorkville, the University Health Network and the University of Toronto, 8 Wellesley is redefining luxury inside and out with a Fendi-furnished lobby, state-of-the-art fitness centre, and outdoor lounge.
This year, we completed construction on our 1 Yorkville condominium residence and welcomed our new homeowners. The irreplaceable building is singular and sensational. Minutes away from this enviable address in Yorkville, homeowners can stroll through designer boutiques on Bloor Street or explore the latest hot spots on Yorkville Avenue.
This year, we also sold out our Bartley Towns community in North York. Nestled into the tree-lined enclave at Eglinton Avenue and Victoria Park, Bartley Towns brings contemporary style and urban refinement to one of Toronto’s most established family communities.
Construction is now underway at Bartley Towns and our construction and development teams have been making great progress. Demolition has been completed and the site has been cleared. Construction is coming along well and we’re looking forward to welcoming new homeowners to the community.
750 Mt. Pleasant Road
We recently introduced an exciting new condo location at 750 Mt. Pleasant Road. Located in midtown Toronto amidst boutique shops, trendy restaurants and vibrant neighbourhoods, 750 Mt. Pleasant Road is an ideal place to live with an incredible walk score of 97. We’ve submitted a zoning application for a 35-storey tower with just under 400 units and beautiful ground floor retail.
100 Bond Street
We introduced an incredible new site at 100 Bond Street this year as well. We’ve submitted a zoning application for a 30-storey mixed-use tower. 100 Bond Street will feature incredible amenities with a unique design that’s sure to impress. Steps away from Ryerson University, the business district, Yonge-Dundas Square and endless entertainment options, 100 Bond Street is an iconic address that we can’t wait to develop.
Bayview & Finch
We introduced a new location at 630 Finch Avenue East with our partner Tridel. Located near natural ravines formed by the Don River, Bayview & Finch will be a terraced condo with an extraordinary design that’s meant to blend in with the natural landscape. With signature BAZIS amenities, the condo will feature ground retail, private terraces, and rooftop gardens.
Queen & Church
We also opened registration for our highly-anticipated new site at 60 Queen Street East. Located in downtown Toronto near the top universities, hospitals and transportation network, Queen & Church will be an ideal place to live.
We’re excited to bring more luxurious residences to Toronto and to continue reshaping and redefining the Toronto skyline. Thank you to all of our friends, partners, homeowners and followers for making this an incredibly successful year!
BAZIS’ latest condominium residence, a 30-storey mixed-use tower designed by R. Varacalli Architect, has an absolutely iconic address. Located at 100 Bond Street, just off of Yonge-Dundas Square and along the southern edge of Ryerson University’s campus, this beautiful property is centrally-located in Toronto’s Garden District, just steps away from some of downtown Toronto’s best attractions.
Let’s take a closer look at this incredible location and all of the amenities nearby, from world-renowned universities and first-class restaurants to some of the city’s best concert venues and entertainment options.
Could this be the neighbourhood of your next dream home?
Getting to Know the Garden District
Downtown Toronto’s Garden District was so named by the Toronto East Downtown Residents Association (now called the Garden District Residents Association) in recognition of Allan Gardens, an indoor botanical garden located nearby at the intersection of Carlton and Jarvis Streets. The Garden District neighbourhood is bordered by Carlton Street to the north, Yonge Street to the west, Sherbourne Street to the east, and Queen Street to the south.
This neighbourhood is incredibly vibrant, and is filled with both historic buildings – including gorgeous old Victorian homes and heritage sites including the Mackenzie House Museum, the stunning Gallery Arcturus art gallery and museum, and the Merchandise Building – and modern amenities and entertainment. It’s a very walkable neighbourhood and when it comes to downtown Toronto, it doesn’t get more central than this!
A Trendy Neighbourhood You’ll Love to Call Home
100 Bond St. is just minutes away from all that Toronto has to offer – from incredible schools and boutique shops to world-class restaurants and top-notch entertainment.
Ryerson University is just across the corner, offering impressive educational opportunities to residents and bringing a wide range of educated students from all around the world to the neighbourhood. Ryerson’s campus includes the Ryerson Image Centre, a photographic museum which is home to The Black Star Collection and the yearly Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival. It also includes the beautiful Ryerson Community Park, with its famous ice skating rink.
Stroll two blocks west and you’ll find yourself at Yonge-Dundas Square, a one-acre outdoor hub for live entertainment and the unofficial epicenter of Toronto’s downtown core. Our version of Times Square in New York City, Yonge-Dundas Square attracts visitors from across the Greater Toronto Area and around the world. You’ll love the vibrant energy that the Square offers! Living so close, you’ll have front row tickets to the wide range of activities taking place at the Square, from community celebrations and theatrical events to concerts, receptions, and promotions – events that appeal to residents and tourists alike – especially as COVID restrictions continue to ease up in the City of Toronto.
Live at the Centre of It All
This neighbourhood is also home to many boutique shops, beautiful street art, and top-rated restaurants as well as local favourites such as Hokkaido Ramen Santouka, which is just a block away from 100 Bond St.
Downtown Toronto and the Garden District are also the place to be if you enjoy live music, theatre, art and culture, and other forms of entertainment. The internationally-famous Massey Hall, Toronto’s best performing arts theatre and concert venue, is just a 5-minute walk away from 100 Bond St., and attracts many of the world’s leading celebrities, artists, and musicians. Other nearby entertainment venues include the Elgin and Winter Garden Theatres for those who love a night out at the theatre, the Ed Mirvish Theatre (formerly Pantages Theatre and then the Canon Theatre) for some of the best musicals, dramas, and comedies on stage in Toronto, and Maple Leaf Gardens for the hockey fans.
Walk, Bike, and Get Around the City with Ease
When it comes to accessibility and being in the centre of it all, 100 Bond St. has nearly a perfect score. With a walk score of 99 (scored out of 100), everything you need is within reach and just a short walk away. From dropping off your dry cleaning to picking up groceries to running errands, 100 Bond St.’s central location makes everyday living a breeze.
100 Bond St. also has a perfect transit score of 100, and is classified by the City of Toronto as a Rider’s Paradise with easy access to world-class public transportation. 100 Bond St. is just a two-minute walk from the 505 Dundas streetcar at the Dundas St. East and Church St. stop. You’re also just minutes away from Line 1 of the Yonge-University subway line, the 501 Queen streetcar, and the 301 Queen. Hop on the subway or streetcar and find your way around the city with ease – and best of all, you can enjoy the commute and not have to worry about traffic.
This central address also has a bike score of 96, and has smooth connections to bike trails along the Toronto waterfront.
Looking to travel a bit further? Our new residence at 100 Bond St. is planned to include four car-share parking spaces, so you can easily access a car and jet off to Muskoka for a long weekend gathering with family, Wasaga Beach for a get-together with friends, or wherever your heart takes you.
Stay Grounded and Connected to Nature
Despite being located right downtown in the City of Toronto, 100 Bond St. is also located close to many parks, so you can get outdoors for a hike or nature walk. Beautiful, lush and verdant retreats are close to home, including Trinity Square Labyrinth, Larry Sefton Park, Joseph Sheard Parkette, Moss Park, and Allan Gardens.
And whether you enjoy daily walking or enjoy more high-energy recreational activities and sports, 100 Bond St.’s central downtown Toronto location means you’re close to all the activities you love, whether it’s playing tennis, participating in a sports league, or spending time doing water sports on Lake Ontario.
100 Bond St. is a highly-desirable address, and we’re looking forward to building a beautiful condominium here and to welcoming many new homeowners to this incredible location.

A New Condo That’s Changing Toronto’s Landscape
1 Yorkville is already making its mark on the Bloor-Yorkville neighbourhood, with its iconic design becoming a memorable and irreplaceable landmark.
The building is wrapped in crimped bands of white metallic ribbon to produce a unique interplay of shadow and light, and to emphasize a glittering effect embedded in the cityscape. This distinctive, unique exterior cladding now extends all the way from the ground floor to the top of the building’s 58th floor, producing a striking, dazzling effect.
The elegant condo fits in perfectly in the luxurious Yorkville neighbourhood, nestled amidst the likes of Hermes, Gucci, Holt Renfrew, and the Four Seasons across the street.
1 Yorkville’s singular, alluring exterior architecture isn’t all that is making the new condo development such an iconic new part of downtown Toronto’s landscape. The condo’s exquisite interior finishes are also designating a new standard of luxury.
Open-concept layouts, premium European-style kitchens and designer finishes, some with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, are stunning and perfectly suited for the most discriminating buyer.
The condo’s lavish amenities are also superbly designed and highly enviable. Style cannot exist without substance, after all.
Of course, the finishing touch to 1 Yorkville is the royal treatment and ultimate luxury provided by its signature concierge services to handle all of life’s little tasks, such as errands, personal shopping and appointment-booking.
