DEVELOPERS ARE USING MORE IMAGINATION THESE DAYS – AND THE RESULTS ARE SHOWING

An application has been submitted to the City of TORONTO asking approval for a 29-storey tower at #210 Bloor Street West, across from the Royal Ontario Museum. The two-storey, well-known Remenyl House of Music occupies the site presently.

The building would be served by a three-level underground parking garage containing 80 spaces for residents, accessed by a pair of car lifts at the rear. Designers – Core Architects for Tribute Communities.

SIDEWALK LABS has released its development plan for Waterfront TORONTO’s Quayside neighbourhood, near the intersection of Parliament Street and Queens Quay East. The idea behind the plan is to integrate smart technologies into a mixed-use, mixed-income ‘digital’ community.

Among the innovations – sustainable mass-timber construction for all buildings, including several towers. Environmentally friendly, Quayside would be home to the single largest concentration of mass-timber buildings in the world. Quayside would be connected to downtown by the future Waterfront East LRT.

Mayor JOHN TORY – “The Quayside plan includes 40% below-market housing – with 20% affordable housing and 20% middle-income housing – which is encouraging, as is the fact that under this plan 3,900 jobs would also be in this neighbourhood.“
