THE ONE at Yonge & Bloor IN PRE-CONSTRUCTION by Mizrahi Developments
The One is a much anticipated and talked about skyscraper housing both residential and retail rising soon at the corner of Yonge & Bloor and is to be the tallest high-rise in Canada. The proposal is still in its early stages but once approved will only be second to the CN Tower as the tallest tower in Canada.
The One Condos by Mizrahi Developments is a new high-rise mixed-use condominium development currently in pre-construction at 1 Bloor Street West in Toronto, Ontario with a proposed 80 storeys in height and 560 residential suites. It is expected that the tower will be 318 metres tall which is 1,043 feet tall.
The 72 storey tower which will house the residential suites will be on top of eight levels of multiplex retail starting at ground level. The sidewalks around the proposed building will be widened to accommodate pedestrians making it easier for people to get around. The public lobby is said to be facing Bloor Street and is to be housed in an atrium that is 40 metres in height.
The One Condos will rise from what was once Stollerys
A menswear shop that stood at Yonge and Bloor for more than a hundred years. In order to preserve this Toronto heritage, Sam Mizrahi is said to have retained carved limestone panels from the facade in order to create a "monument" to Stollerys' history which will be part of The One as a permanent fixture of the building.
The One will be designed by London-based architectural firm Foster + Partners with the help of Core Architects to create an iconic tower at one of the best known intersections in Canada. The structure will feature "a steel exoskeleton" in bronze or champagne colour that will envelop the glass building housing a luxury shopping mall which will understandably stand out from its neighbours.
The proposed plan is to dig down 10 levels underground where 600 parking spots are said to be situated with access to the TTC Subway as well. The ambitious plan is to lease out retail space starting in 2018 as construction continues above for the residential tower.
This is a perfect spot for an iconic building still in the approval stages. As more information arises for The One, we will update this site accordingly. In the meantime, feel free to register with us today for up and coming information on this spectacular project by Mizrahi Developments!
