Sometimes, our staff at McGarr Realty have the opportunity to take part in the development and sale of a special real estate project.

As you can tell from our listings, we have several projects on the go right now. We don’t usually play favourites, but we have to tell you: we love the condominium development currently under construction at 77 Yates Street in St. Catharines.

Nestled in the Yates Street Heritage District, this development oozes luxury from top to bottom. Before we even began selling these gorgeous condos back in 2017, McGarr Realtors® knew this building was something special just by looking at its architectural renderings.

From its developer to its architect and everyone in between – including designers; builders; engineers; surveyor; landscaper and all other team members involved in this project, 77 Yates St. is the product of local Ontario talent.

That’s why 77 Yates is so special: Extreme care has been taken by local contributors to preserve the heritage of this St. Catharines neighbourhood.  All this while adding a luxury-filled, modern condominium residence that will celebrate its past and promote the future of this vibrant, metropolitan district.

Let’s talk specifically about the development and its amenities:

  • 77 Yates is a new condo development currently being built at 77 Yates Street, St. Catharines and is scheduled for completion this year. Sales began in the winter of 2017.
  • This property is located centrally in St. Catharines, offering a metropolitan lifestyle in the appealing, luxury-laden Niagara Region.
  • The building offers an unobtrusive six stories, with 37 units, ranging in size from 1,282 square feet to 2,674 square feet. That’s larger than some single-family dwellings in St. Catharines, with no lawn maintenance!
  • The units are selling from $640,000 to $1,300,000. The average price per square foot is $500.
  • Parking and storage are available for purchase with your unit.
  • Many options are available for owners looking to customize their condo’s finishings. All units are finished with luxury materials, including crown moulding; custom baseboards, and solid-wood window and door casings. Throughout, ceilings reach up to nine feet or more; wall-to-wall windows offer views of either cityscape, or valley view, including Twelve Mile Creek, the Old Welland Canal, and the lush greenery into which this development is nestled.
  • This property’s shared amenities include a rooftop terrace – Club 77 – with party room; billiards room; cards room; barbecue stations and more. It’s a perfect place to catch the sunset with friends.
  • Because landscaping is ongoing, we want to tell you how gorgeous it will be! Although the building itself has a sleek, modern design, the grounds will blend with the lush valley setting, offering access to the Merritt Trail and waterfront.
  • The luxurious lobby details include a grand, three-storey space featuring a waterfall and courtyard lookout. 
  • The garage will feature two levels of secure, interior parking, with outlets for charging electric vehicles. 
  • Your safety is important. That’s why 77 Yates has been constructed with durable concrete, requiring low maintenance with naturally fire-resistant materials, including: low and zero-VOC products in an energy-efficient design. Unobtrusive security will be present on the property, 24/7.

There’s so much more we could say about this development! Have a look at the suite layouts. While we absolutely love the barrier-free living available on floors one through five, we think you’ll quickly see why the Valley View No. 601 is on McGarr’s favourites list!

Truly, there’s a certain cachet that will come with this address. Not only will it offer the best in shopping and services just moments away, it also offers the uniqueness of the Yates Street Heritage District, promoting the richness of St. Catharines’ history. 

Other benefits of this address are its proximity to a state-of-the-art hospital; easy access to highways; access to the Merritt Trail and other places for outdoor meandering.

If you are seeking a local development offering the best of St. Catharines and local Niagara, you cannot go wrong with 77 Yates – it’s the one we’re all talking about, with suites that are perfect for either an upgrade or downsize.
