Luxury is defined as either an object or service conducive to sumptuous living; the free indulgence in such living; or a means to minister indulgence or enjoyment. 

Mizrahi Developments’ 181 Davenport is a distinct boutique condominium that endeavours to provide luxury in its fullest sense.

Located in Yorkville, arguably Toronto’s most desirable residential neighbourhood, 181 Davenport caters to home buyers who are looking for the feel of their current palatial home but desire the services of a boutique hotel.

Complete with direct elevator access to your residence and 24-hour concierge and valet, the idea is to have “less house and more life.”

At Davenport Rd. and Hazelton Ave., Chanel, Cartier and Tiffany’s are your neighbours, but you’re not so close to them that you need to mix with the ruck shopping on Bloor. 

“You’re getting the privacy, but at the same time you can walk to the best restaurants, art galleries, or the theatre,” says Sam Mizrahi, president of Mizrahi Developments.

With excellent transit proximity and easy access to the DVP via Rosedale Valley Road, 181 Davenport is connected with little congestion to the best of Toronto.

“You’ve got a panoramic view of the city,” says Mizrahi. 

To the north is the greenery of Ramsden park, where you can skate and walk your dog off-leash. To the south, the sparkling cityscape view will remain undisturbed, by law.

“You know that your views are protected because we’re in the Yorkville heritage zone,” Mizrahi explains.

Because of that heritage, you can’t build just anything in Yorkville. The project must live up to both the quality and luxury implied in the address, as well as blend with the historical nature of one of Toronto’s oldest protected neighbourhoods.

Architects Page + Steele are one of the oldest award-winning firms in Canada, well acquainted with tradition. “Sol Wassermuhl has that [timeless] perspective and style,” says Mizrahi.

Clad in limestone and curved to fit the contours of the street, both 181 Davenport and its sister building 133 Hazelton seamlessly connect Dupont Road’s historical row houses and Hazelton Avenue’s Victorian homes.

“We wanted a building that looked like it belonged here 50 years ago, belongs here today, and will belong here 50 years into the future,” says Mizrahi.
