#TORONTOBOUND: KARL LAGERFELD TO DESIGN YONGE x EGLINTON ART SHOPPE CONDO-LOFT LOBBY SPACE
The best news ever to have happened Midtown. My first Bachelor Pad was around Yonge x Eglinton and part of the joy of living there involved the walk through the shopping/restaurant strip extending from the intersection all the way down to St. Clair. I remember always walking by the Art Shoppe and being fascinated by some of the forward pieces on display in the window. By the 2000s, I’ll admit some of the looks seemed of another era and alas it has been determined that the valuable real estate there could be better optimized.
Freed and CD Capital Developments will now be developing the space into a dual Tower Combo of Condos and Lofts. Signing-on to design the Development’s Lobby Space is none other than international Fashion Icon Karl Lagerfeld, this being his first time doing anything of the sort and this also is his first visit to Canada. It is said Lagerfeld will be visiting Toronto potentially in April to continue the discussions as per Jordan Dermer of CD Capital Developments. Now that’s exciting. More on this here.
We’d always imagined that Lagerfeld would visit for some spectacular Fashion Bonanza, but this certainly is big!
