The commercial building located on Bay between Bloor and Wellesley Streets is currently home to
tenants such as the Government of Ontario and a Firkin Pub at the ground level.
Canderel wants to tear down and build in its place a 66 storey, mixed- use residential office and commercial complex designed by acclaimed architects at Hariri Pontarini.
Rising roughly 234 metres high, the development would add 528 new condo units to the heart of downtown Toronto.
It would also boast roughly 24,460 squarte metres of office spce and have some retail space at ground level if approved as is.

There will be an abundance of parking spots for bikes and cars located on-site (639 and 201) respectively.
Huge public lobbies and a mixture of new restaurants and shops at the ground level- but the most exciting part of this build may just be its amenities.
Two massive, landscaped outdoor patios, can be seen in the renderings. One large wraparound terrace and on the 15th floor and second, smaller indoor-outdoor patio on the 16th.
There’s also a massive enclosed glass space on the building’s 66th floor mechanical penthouse.
This space will provide residents with unobstructed,360 degree views of downtown Toronto, according to planning documents.
Office workers will be able to enjoy their own 2nd floor terrace with seating and dining amenities, while residents will have access to (among other things) a “shared outdoor terrace” in the centre of the building.
