herzog & de meuron designs mixed-use toronto tower with 332 residential units

herzog & de meuron, working alongside local firm quadrangle, has designed a mixed-use 87-storey skyscraper that will rise above toronto’s city center at the intersection of bay street and bloor street. the first 16 floors of the tower will replace the site’s existing retail, office, and technical functions. a private amenities level will separate these programs from the 64 condominium levels above. the building’s three highest floors contain a large restaurant, sky lounge, and other rentable spaces, offering panoramic views across the city. the tower marks herzog & de meuron’s first design in toronto.

herzog & de meuron and quadrangle were tasked with designing the project by its developers, kroonenberg groep and ProWinko. with a 3:1 ratio in the north-south orientation, a simple extrusion of the site footprint rises 87 storeys, resulting in an elegant tower volume. a linear core at the western façade is proposed which maximizes the usable area of the floorplate, the aspect over bay street to the east, and simultaneously provides privacy from any adjacent development to the west.

at street level, residents enter a triple-height lobby from bloor street and take one of four dedicated elevators to their condo level. residences will range from one bedroom, to multi-level penthouses, totaling 332 condominium units spread over 64 floors. residences are characterized by generous daylight through the floor-to-ceiling operable windows which provide natural ventilation. additionally, external shutters allow each individual user to regulate the daylight and heat load into the apartment.
