HOW GREAT IT IS TO SEE ‘THE ONE’ TAKING SHAPE WHERE YONGE MEETS BLOOR STREET

What will be here sometime soon, Canada’s tallest residential building is occupying one of the best locations in Toronto. Designed by the U.K.’s Foster + Partners, with developer Sam Mizrahi, the building will rise 1,014 feet (85 storeys), and occupy a large piece of Downtown prime real estate. It will also be Canada’s first super tall skyscraper (300+ m) defined by ‘The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat’.  As of September/2020 75% of the apartments were already sold. The first 18 storeys include restaurants, event spaces, two major retailers and a luxury Hyatt hotel, under its boutique brand Andaz. The residential section will have a total of 416 units. Four penthouses will be up there, along with four storeys of parking underground. The structure will connect with the Bloor-Yonge subway station and the underground walkway system – a smaller version of the PATH network. An Apple Store is expected to be the anchor tenant of The One. <Photos – looking north and south, July 18, 2021>
