Rising 49 storeys, with a red brick façade, The Selby is a unique architectural vision in downtown Toronto. A four-storey podium offers a contemporary counterpoint to the 130-year old heritage building integrated into the design. The juxtaposition of old and new is a recurring theme, from the bold modern form of the building’s exterior, to the traditional period furniture that reinterprets the historic Gooderham Mansion. A wide selection of units are available, including a limited number of contemporary townhomes, for purchasers who appreciate a rare find.
The four-storey podium is home to many of the building’s amenities, including the fitness facility, the rooftop pool, the party room, and several interconnected outdoor lounges. Set back from Sherbourne Street, it offers privacy for residents, and spaces to relax and play. A perimeter of trees and plantings on the outdoor terrace provide shade and intimacy, creating a fresh and welcoming urban yard.
The Selby is located in the heart of downtown Toronto, just steps from the subway. In every direction, excitement awaits. TO THE NORTH, the Rosedale Ravine stretches out, perfect for hiking, walking, and cycling. TO THE EAST, cuisine from the four corners of the world are cooking on the Danforth. TO THE SOUTH, University of Toronto, Ryerson University, and George Brown College, are a short walk away, as are many of Toronto’s hospitals. TO THE WEST, the luxury shopping mecca of Bloor Yorkville is nearby, along with the theatres, restaurants, and bars of Yonge Street. This is one of the city’s most dynamic neighbourhoods, and the perfect place to call home.
