Toronto's skyline could undergo significant changes if this towering mixed-use super-tower from Dutch property company Kroonenberg Groep and ProWinko gets the green light. Set to rise 87-stories above the intersection of Bay and Bloor in Toronto's esteemed Yorkville neighborhood, the tower is only eight stories shorter than the Toronto's future record-breaking SkyTower by Pinnacle International at 1 Yonge Street. Second only to the tallest building in all of Toronto the CN Tower. Standing 324 meters, its a race on which would become the tallest building in Canada.
The Tower that is Designed by Swiss-based architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron and Canadian Architect Quadrangle, the mixed-use tower comes with a slim structure and will mark the Swiss company's first design in Toronto. "This is an iconic block in the neighborhood and Toronto. It's an opportunity to deliver a project that sets a new standard for design and development that strives to give back to the city," says Lesley Bamberger, owner of Kroonenberg Groep.
While the personal amenities level will separate these functions from the condo levels above, there are 16 floors of the structure that will consist of retail, office and technical amenities. A restaurant, sky lounge, and leisure spaces will occupy the highest three floors of this building with panoramic views. Street level, the residents will be able to choose one of four lifts to their condominium level and to enter the building via a triple-height reception from Bloor Street. Residences will range to penthouses that are multi-level, totaling 332 condominium units.
The proposed tower also offers a "layered reflection of the vertical structural elements," inside glazing (thermal envelope), exterior timber roller shades, and an outer layer of transparent, open-jointed glass. Kroonenberg Groep says the effect is a construction that which at times, seems"transparent and expressive -- revealing the scale and action inside the building; and in other times, the reflective outer layer of glass gives the building an abstract quality, emphasizing its striking proportion. "If approved, the redevelopment project would join a number of others already underway near Toronto's Mink Mile, including Mizrahi Developments' 85-storey on the corner of Yonge and Bloor.
