475 Yonge Condos,the pair of high-rise towers—65 and 45 storeys tall—at 475 Yonge Street have been proposed to replace the mid-century hotel complex, which stretches between Wood and Alexander streets on the east side of Yonge.

475 Yonge Condos Designed by Quadrangle Architects, the proposed towers—rising to heights of 220 and 160 metres—would replace the 16 and 9-storey hotel buildings with much greater density. Rising from a flat 5-storey podium fronting Yonge Street, the towers would add 988 residential units to the growing area. In addition, a 289-room hotel component is included in the plans, replacing some of the existing hotel suites.

A graphic explaining the evolution of Quadrangle's massing strategy sheds some light on the proposed built form. As shown below, moving the towers away from Yonge Street reduces shadow impact on nearby 11 Wellesley Park, while the sculpted forms increase tower separation, allowing residential suites more natural light, and further mitigating new shadowing. A public space at the east end of the site is also planned, strengthening the existing mid-block pedestrian connection while attempting to create a sense of continuity with the Alexander Street Parkette to the north. The proposed landscape plan was drafted by Ferris + Associates.

The hotel suites would be distributed among the podium and the taller north tower, while the 45-storey south tower is proposed with only residential suites. The 988 residential suites are configured as 78 bachelor (10%), 611 one-bedroom (62%), 181 two-bedroom (18%), and 99 three-bedroom (10%) units.
