There's been a ton of discussion about it on UT, most of it negative because it's strangely suburban, with the cul-de-sac and emphasis on car access instead of pedestrian access. The only ones who are enthusiastic about the scheme in its current form are the height fanboys.

CIBC Square 2 - 241.5m - 50s - Hines - Wilkinson Eyre - construction start soon (?)

In addition to the rumour mill, some strong hints suggest a construction start may be imminent (the old GO station on-site has just been fenced off, new construction extending the rail deck/park from phase 1 etc.). Seems like a good time to have a look at the slightly taller twin via renders not widely circulated.

In the eye candy below, some of the few substantial changes submitted in the spring include an increase in podium height (approx. +6 metres). The project also proposes to remove the existing Metrolinx bridge over Yonge Street and replace it with a new pedestrian bridge linked to Backstage Condos, which has an extension to the underground PATH system already in place. This new bridge would begin construction after the office tower is nearer to completion.

All renders are from Urban Toronto via the Minor Variance application submitted in the spring: https://cdn.skyrisecities.com/sites/...011-139104.jpg






Stairs to the deck/park over the rail corridor.


North entrance.

A COVID-defying mixed-use super-tall proposal.

212 King Street West - 310m - 79s - Dream - SHoP - proposed

660,000 square feet of office space, 588 residential rental units and 10,000 square feet of retail.

Architecture by SHoP (from Globe & Mail article):

"Mr. Pasquarelli explained that the design of the tower is broken up visually into two sections. The first, wider section would contain the office floors and be faced partly with white terracotta panels; the taller, narrower section, with predominantly black cladding, contains apartments. He said details of the architecture, including the textured ceiling of the atrium, would be inspired by the existing buildings, which once housed a factory where General Electric’s Canadian unit made turbines and motors."

Heritage buildings to be included.

SHoP does a great job in the details, so if this moves forward, will be a great architectural asset to the city, despite the relatively simple massing.

Agreed and as I noted in another thread: "At the very least a mixed-use tower with 660,000 square feet of office space plus 588 residential rental units plus 10,000 square feet of retail finally meets the kind of mix I've been harping about... a post pandemic live/work project that makes sense.

Also think that SHoP's quote (below) may hint at architectural detailing that will be refined/improved. The devil is in the details and even a fairly refined early render is best viewed as a placeholder for a little while.

Given DREAM also hinted that Mirvish Gehry is active and coming to market next year, I think a neighbouring super-tall like 212 King W (with great materials) should have a simple built form... let Mirvish Gehry do the architectural gymnastics on this block."

SHoP:
"Mr. Pasquarelli explained that the design of the tower is broken up visually into two sections... He said details of the architecture, including the textured ceiling of the atrium, would be inspired by the existing buildings".

CIBC Square 2 - update

As a quick follow-up to my earlier post, demolition equipment is now on-site. You also see the recent extension work for the deck/park between phase 1 and phase 2.

Great history of downtown development (Bloor/Yorkville to the lake) by steveve.

Today’s news of the 212 King West super-tall (310m) would sit roughly to the right of the CN Tower main pod in this view.

Some more detailed Norman Li renders of 212 King West, including ShoP's use of terracotta (something they have excelled at with other designs).

steveve added a massing of the 310m 212 King West proposal (orange) to a slice of his future render.

*Super-talls construction:
SkyTower - 312.5m
The One - 309m

*Near misses:
Sugar Wharf B @ 299m, YSL @ 299m and poor BMO still @ 298m (for more than 40 years ;-)

Oh man, that honeycomb ceiling on the cantilever of 212 King St. West is amazing. Really looking forward to that one.

It's amazing how much development is happening in Toronto right now and even COVID-19 hasn't seemed to stop it.

This has a similar program to two of our new tallest in development in Austin (except with huge parking podiums instead heritage buildings and atrium). Essentially, a residential tower stacked on top of an office tower. The first at 848 feet is under construction and the second, recently proposed is our first supertall. https://skyscraperpage.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=229264 The latter has a beautiful creek-front hotel lining the parking podium. https://skyscraperpage.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=205341
