1 Yonge Condos
No. of units: 3885
Developer: Pinnacle International
Address: 1 Yonge St. Toronto, ON M5E 1W7
1 through 7 Yonge Street redevelopment preliminary concept by Hariri Pontarini Architects for Pinnacle International. The images represent the initial submission, but the figures below represent the changing plans from the December 2014 resubmission. The shortest of the buildings is the existing 25-storey Toronto Star building.
There will be 3 towers for 1 Yonge Condos – 95, 85 and 65 storeys and 2 office towers of 22 and 35 storeys. There will be a fitness center with full facilities. 1 Yonge Condos will also include a public courtyard, with retail and office spaces available. It is proposed the tallest building in the country.
Queens Quay, however, redevelopment is in progress for the land that had the former printing plant and distribution centre, as well as the parking lot on it.
The architect, Hariri Pontarini has planned to make this the new premium landmark. Overlooking the Lake and the Toronto skyline, these new developments plan on being the highest towers in Canada and situated on the longest street in the world that dives the city into east and west.
The site will be completely transformed by glass high rise towers, restaurants, retail space, a hotel, a public square and 17 meter promenade. Rising above the city, towers are proposed to be between 70 and 88 storeys tall, if the zoning and city permits. These will be the tallest towers in the city.
Hariri Pontarini plans on towers that will be award-winning in design. All towers are proposed to be different and to give off a curve impression.
There will be over 4,100 units available for residence. 1 and 7 Yonge will be the new address, but the other towers will most likely have different addresses.
An Excellent Location for the New Condo Project
The massive amount spent to procure land for the project certainly seems to have been well worth the investment, as the new project will have one of the most highly coveted addresses in Toronto, Yonge Street on the harbourfront. Along with office and retail space, Yonge will also feature a public space and a state-of-the-art fitness center, a restaurant/lounge, and upscale recreation facilities. In total, the project will contain more than 800,000 square feet of commercial space.
Pinnacle Development certainly has the experience to bring such a project to fruition. The development firm has already completed two condos along the waterfront: Success Tower and 33 Bay St. Condos. In the past, Pinnacle has handled projects from as near as Vancouver all the way to San Diego.
