Red face TORONTO | 880 Bay Street | 630 ft / 192 m | 44 FLOORS



880 Bay Street
Land Use Planning Approvals – 880 Bay Street Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Client: Ontario Realty Corporation
Scope of Service: Master Planning and Design
Approximate Value: $250M
Status: Rezoning Approved, SPA in progress

WZMH was engaged to design a new office tower at 880 Bay Street within the Queens Park Government Precinct as part of their Toronto Accommodation Plan. The 44 storey tower design is unique in Toronto for responsive design to solar orientation to east, west, south and north facades. The north side core elevator design has slender floor plates that are oriented to face south and provide maximum natural daylight penetration and views for occupants. At Street level the building podium and arcade design relates to the scale of the adjacent distinctive Macdonald Block arcades that wrap around the major street edges. The project is targeting a minimum of LEED Silver.
Rezoning approval was granted within period of 6 months from application.

I know! I can't even keep track of everything east of Yonge!

I was going to walk down Mink Mile to check out 1 Bloor but it seems a bit frosty.

Cheers!
It's ironic I lost track around the same time I moved back here in Sept 2010.

This Tower will stand acrross the street from the presently under construction Burano Tower which is a condominium of around 163 meters tall. Bay Street at this junction is a canyon of residential and business towers lining both sides of the street.

It will be really nice to see another big office tower go up in TO, although looking at the east/west elevations in that report it is going to be narrow for an office building.

When I was in Toronto on May 11, I noticed that the current office building on the site was vacant, can this building be starting shortly?

It essentially is. I will expect it to be reincarnated in another form in a couple of years once the governments financing is back in order.
