49 and 35 storey towers begin construction this week at Yonge and Sheppard

A project that could be the thing that tips Yonge and Sheppard from being part of the periphery to a true GTA hub is set to begin construction this week. The two-tower Hullmark Centre, by Kirkor architects and Tridel will have direct access to the subway, and has signed Whole Foods as its retail anchor.

There will be offices on the first 18 floors of the pedestal, with a total of 684 suites in the two towers above, 95 per cent of which are sold, according to Tridel spokesman Samson Fung.

"We wanted a real landmark community to be put there," says Fung. "We hope this will be part of the transformation of that whole Yonge and Sheppard corner."

The project is to be built on the southeast corner of the intersection, on the site of 1950s-era Grand Union grocery store, a building which became a Steinberg's, then a Dominion, and finally a Metro.

Fung points out that the intersection is at the geographical centre of the GTA, and with access to both the subway and highway systems, he sees a great future for the area, where Tridel already has more than half a dozen buildings.
