Living With Roommates: Rent a 2-bedroom in Aura

One of our most coveted two bedroom units is available for rent right now! This unit is way up high and has never been lived in - it’s perfect for a pair of roommates looking to live in the downtown core. Being on the 73rd floor of our building would also mean you have one of the best views of the city, and live close to work, school, and all the amenities you could ever need.

Get Ready for Fall with Fashion on Yonge

Downtown Yonge is bringing Fashion on Yonge back to the neighbourhood for yet another year, but this time with a new venue! For the past two years this has been one of our favourite events because it shows off just how vibrant our neighbourhood is, especially when it comes to fashion.

Yonge Street goes car-free for Open Streets TO

Open Streets TO is coming back to Toronto for its second year! Last year, the concept was tested on Yonge and Bloor streets and was met with a ton of enthusiasm. The streets were entirely closed off to cars for a few days last summer and instead were infused with bikers and pedestrians. The main goal of the project was to promote physical activity but also prove that people in Toronto would run, hop, skip, and jump on the opportunity to have a car-free area like this.

The Story of... The Shard

Been across the pond before? Then you’ve probably spotted The Shard in London, England.

The Shard is a supertall glass pyramid skyscraper situated in Southwark, London, designed by Renzo Piano (think the Whitney Museum or the New York Times building in NYC). It’s 87 storeys, 309.6 metres, or 1,016 feet tall, making it the tallest skyscraper in the European Union, and the second tallest free-standing structure in the UK.
