And the rendering doesn't include the 80 floor Holt Renfrew proposed tower across the street.

Sky gardens for what looks to be an upscale retail/office atrium

Or are you talking about the two indents in the upper portion of the tower? I dont think Id ever venture on to a balcony over 150 meters above the ground.

Excellent looking tower, and hopefully shovels are in the ground quickly for this one.

That proposal was scaled back a bit, to 71 floors, 230 metres. http://skyscraperpage.com/cities/?buildingID=57390

Fuckn' A.


Toronto is beginning to resemble NYC with it's downtown and (emerging) midtown CBDs.

The residential area indents.

As for the height, Shangri La has them all the way up doesn't it? That's well past 150.

Number One Bloor, across the street, will have balconies all the way up, to over 240 metres.

The renderings are stunning. My only complaint is the plain looking floor tiles. I'd also love to see a water feature in the atrium.

Fantasy: I'd love to see Mizrahi use the profits from this project to purchase another site around Bloor East and commission a more conventional Robert Stern tower (somthing around 200 meters tall) If that miraculously materialized, this would balance out the Yorkville skyline, perhaps even rivalling the Financial District.

Would love to see a curved tower with a 20 story podium at the corner of Balmuto and Bloor. I would hate to see buildings with stumpy podiums on bloor. It has the potential to become the greatest streetwall in Toronto. A streamline parisian style would look great there. I would love to see somthing like a taller version of the building on the northwest corner of Yonge and Ramsden Park, except with cafes, bars, and gelato shops lining the courtyard.
