Southcore Financial Centre celebrates milestone with topping-off of PwC Tower at 18 York Street and groundbreaking event
Construction of flagship Delta Toronto and Bremner Tower set to begin in December 2010


TORONTO, Nov. 26 /CNW/ - British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (bcIMC) announced today the completion and initiation of significant phases in the development of Southcore Financial Centre (SFC) with the topping-off ceremony of the PwC Tower and a groundbreaking event for another office tower and the new flagship Delta Toronto hotel.

The 650,000 sq. ft. PwC Tower at 18 York Street will be headquarters to PwC, a leading accounting and consulting firm, and is scheduled for occupancy in fall 2011. The placing of the final beam on the rooftop of the PwC Tower concludes SFC's first phase of development, involving 542 construction days and a dedicated effort by the EllisDon construction team. Following the topping-off event, a groundbreaking ceremony launched SFC's second phase of development: a second office building — the 30-storey, 700,000 sq. ft. Bremner Tower — and the 45-storey Delta Toronto - a next-generation, premium four-star hotel.

"Today's topping off ceremony and groundbreaking event are important milestones in our commitment to Toronto's emerging southcore district, and the partnerships with the companies that will soon occupy the premises," said Chuck Swanson, Vice President, Real Estate, bcIMC. "With this project, bcIMC is advancing the development of sustainable office space designed to benefit tenants and their employees, the local community and the environment."

Encompassing a full block from York Street to Lower Simcoe Street and within walking distance of King and Bay, the SFC complex will be built to a high level of sustainability with PwC Tower and Bremner Tower targeting LEED® Gold certification.

"With move-in date less than one year away, our people are more excited than ever about the move to PwC Tower," said David Forster, PwC's GTA Managing Partner. "Our new home in Toronto's expanding financial district fits with the firm's commitment to our people, our clients and the environment. PwC Tower brings all our downtown people together, supporting our ability to provide the best service to our clients while creating a collaborative, productive and enjoyable workspace that offers access to public transportation and green design features."

The new Delta Toronto, set to open in 2014, will provide 566 well-appointed, generously sized guest rooms, including 24 extended-stay suites for travelers who are in the city for a longer period of time. The hotel will feature the latest in sustainable design including heat-recovery ventilation, low-flow fixtures, smartcards to control room lighting and air based on suite occupancy, and green roofs throughout the building.

"This four-star hotel will serve as a flagship property for Delta and, through its many innovative features, will allow us to exceed the expectations of our guests," said Hank Stackhouse, president and CEO, Delta Hotels and Resorts. "The Delta Toronto will be strategically located within walking distance to Toronto's financial and entertainment districts, allowing us to fulfill the needs of both business and leisure travellers and connect them to the city in a convenient way."

Centrally positioned between the PwC Tower and the Delta Toronto, SFC's Bremner Tower — projected to be completed by December 2013 — will bridge the adjacent buildings and form the heart of the SFC complex along Bremner Boulevard. SFC's 1.4 million sq. ft. of office space is designed by award-winning KPMB Architects. The Delta Toronto is designed by Paige + Steele / IBI Architects. All three buildings will be connected by more than 14,000 sq. ft. of urban forest areas and pedestrian walkways.

This project is being developed by GWL Realty Advisors Inc. on behalf of bcIMC. To learn more about Southcore Financial Centre, visit www.southcore.ca

Yes the Hotel Tower seems to be winning some supporters in Toronto, the rest of the development not so much.

But hell, another huge empty lot down, so many more empty lots left in this city that need towers.

No excavation here until they clear the site, might not be until March of next year before we see some visible progress here.

Yes, the financial district is expanding. Southcore Financial Centre is the Canadian verision of the Canary Wharf Project in England, or World Financial Centre in the United States.
