About this condo
Pears on the Avenue is a luxury building, so say the very least. Anyone who needs proof can just head past the front doors and into the lobby, which covers three levels. Here, a grand, sculptural staircase allows residents can reenact scenes from Beauty and the Beast or the Titanic.
Located at 127-170 Avenue Road in the Yorkville neighborhood, the façade of Pears on the Avenue is mainly made up of glass, with some stone and brick holding it all together. The edifice reaches to a comfortable 20 storeys — just tall enough to stand out, yet not tall enough to feel obtrusive
Menkes Developments is responsible for the construction of 127-170 Avenue Road, which was completed back in 2015. The building is home to not only 175 luxury condos, but an array of top-of-the-line amenities as well.
Residents have access to a gym, plus an indoor lap pool with plenty of space to lounge after (or instead of) taking a dip. A concierge is also available to make life easier for residents.
After a long day, residents can relax and entertain themselves without leaving the building, whether this involves using the theatre, yoga studio, terrace with fireplace and garden, or even the party room. Additionally, visitors who lose track of time can even spend the night in one of the building’s guest suites.
Yorkville condos for sale at Pears on the Avenue range dramatically in size, allowing prospective buyers and their families of all sizes to find comfortable homes. The suites range from around 500 to 3,500 square feet, with the largest containing plenty of space for pets, visiting relatives, or even art collections and libraries.
Regardless of size, the interiors at 127-170 Avenue are all exquisite, thanks to designs by Munge/Leunge. Polished hardwood floors contrast subtly with robust columns, while floor-to-ceiling windows are all the more dramatic in corner units.
While dens and separate dining rooms can be found in some of the suites at Pears on the Avenue, others feature open concept layouts. Commonly, kitchens flow freely into dining and living areas, allowing home chefs using their stainless steel appliances and generous islands a chance to chat with their guests or watch TV while they prep a meal.
Ceilings are generous, reaching to 9 feet. Spacious bathtubs offer residents a great way to relax, while those who are most at ease in the great outdoors will enjoy spending as much time as possible on their terraces or balconies. Encased in glass, these private outdoor spaces offer some pretty impressive views of the city below.
Sitting in the north end of ritzy Yorkville, residents literally have the city at their doorsteps. Window shopping or fine dining will occupy otherwise free Saturdays for those living at 127-170 Avenue, if they so please. Alternatively, there’s a myriad of cultural institutions to be found just steps from the building as well.
Residents might want to consider purchasing a membership to their favourite museum, whether that be the Royal Ontario Museum, the Gardiner Museum, or even the Bata Shoe Museum. All of these are within walking distance (or a short drive.)
When it comes time to do some serious grocery shopping, residents will love living so close to the expansive Whole Foods on Avenue Road — one of just a few locations in the entire city. Pusateri’s isn’t far off either, where shoppers can find everything from organic fruits and vegetables to artisanal items and some pretty impressive prepared foods.
Traveling to and from Pears on the Avenue is a breeze, thanks to its location directly on Avenue Road. Those with cars can head north up Avenue in order to reach Forest Hill or even the 401, while a southbound drive will land one in the centre of downtown Toronto (although south of Bloor the name changes to University Avenue).
For those heading into the suburbs, another great option is to drive along Bloor East, which connects to an on ramp onto the Don Valley Parkway. From there, the 401 takes no time to reach, while the Gardiner Expressway is also not far off.
Residents without cars can get around just as easily from 127-170 Avenue. The 5 Avenue Road bus travels north toward Eglinton Station, and makes a loop at Elm Street to the south. Dupont Station takes just over 10 minutes to reach on foot, from which travelers can hop onto subway trains heading north or south along the University-Spadina Line. To the east, Rosedale Station on the Yonge line takes about the same time to reach from Pears on the Avenue.
