Burke Condos Summary
This new condo project is an ambitious project that involves the restoration of several heritage buildings as well as the addition of new condominium towers, mixed-use podiums and a public park.
Burke Condos is a new mixed-use high-rise condominium by Concert in Toronto. This pre-construction project is located at 603 Sherbourne St between Sherbourne Street to the west, Parliament Street to the east, Bloor Street to the north and Howard Street to the south.
The first tower, Burke Condos by Concert Properties is a 53 storey high-rise building with a total of 500 units offering a mix of studios, one bedrooms, two bedrooms and 3 bedrooms.
It’s divided into three separate blocks. Block one sits on the northeast corner of Sherbourne and Howard Streets and calls for the addition of a 53-storey condominium tower set back from a series of existing heritage buildings. These will be restored and potentially be used for retail space.
This block will also include a two-storey podium along Sherbourne Street and a three-storey, mixed-use building along Howard Street that will connect to the tower at its third level. Block one is proposed to have 500 residential units in total and six levels of underground parking with 304 stalls.
The second block sits immediately east of block one, situated mid-block on Glen Road, south of Bloor. This portion’s proposal calls for the conservation of six semi-detached heritage buildings, which will be retained for residential use. It also calls for seven three-storey residential townhomes along a lane behind these houses. The townhomes will have access to the underground parking garage in block one.
Block three sits at the other end of the parcel, at the intersection of Bloor, Parliament and Howard Streets. This portion calls for three residential condominium buildings, including a 12-storey tower with 134 units and a 37-storey tower with 312 units.
These two condos will be connected by a two-storey podium fronting Howard Street and an eight-storey podium fronting Bloor Street East.
These podiums will contain a mix of residential, commercial and retail space. A third tower is proposed for this parcel as well, standing 45 storeys with 375 residential units. Two of these towers will have a public courtyard separating them, along with a glass pedestrian bridge providing covered access between them. All three Burke Condo buildings will have access to a four-level underground parking garage containing 512 parking stalls. In its entirety, the development proposes 1,241 residential units, including 158 bachelor units, 721 one-bedroom, 273 two-bedroom and 89 three-bedroom units. The developers have also proposed significant streetscape improvements for the development, including widened sidewalks, new trees and a public park situated in block three.
