Skyview on Yonge Condos

Tridel built Skyview on Yonge, a 20 storey condominium, in 1985. It was one of the first condominiums in the area. Skyview has extensive amenities and sits on over 3 acres of landscaped parkland. As an older building it boasts of large suites (283 of them) , tennis courts, observation deck and outdoor pool and its within walking distance from the Yonge/Finch subway. It is truly a gem in the neighborhood.

With all this going for it, the corridors and lobby finishes and colour scheme were dated and no doubt detracted from the buildings amazing features. Green and pink carpet, egg crate light covers, and dull millwork needed to be updated to enhance the already great appeal of the building. The Board of Directors awarded JCO & Associates the corridor refurbishment project and we commenced in August of 2015.

The new design made a remarkable positive change to the aesthetics which will now appeal to a larger demographic. The lighting was updated by removing the egg crate covers in the bulkhead of each suite door and elevator lobbies and installing new LED pots. The suite door and elevator lobby millwork was modified and modernized with a deeper colour. The main wall covering was changed and accent wall covering was added to the suite door drops and elevator lobby walls. A the elevator lobbies were remodeled with a new coffered ceiling and floor tile. The carpet was custom designed and colored and grounded the full design. The rather industrial ceiling tile was replaced with one that was more elegant along with new running man exit signs. Overall this refurbishment made a significant positive change to the overall appearance and brought the design up to date and in line with competing buildings in the area. This will not doubt have a positive impact on the market values of the suites in this building.

The project was completed in March 2016.
