Where Yonge Street meets Bloor is one of Canada’s prime intersections. If the proposal is approved, a tower (The One) – Canada tallest – designed by LONDON-based Foster and Partners and TORONTO’s Core Architects will rise on the southwest corner.
The design: 8 levels (more than 240,000 square feet) of retail and restaurant space, a public 40-metre-tall atrium, and then 72 storeys of condominium apartments (560 altogether). Sidewalks around the building would be widened to at least 8-metres on Bloor and 5-metres on Yonge.
Developer Sam Mizrahi: “Our goal is to build for the next 50 or 100 years. This project is unprecedented and this corner deserves it.”
