Kroonenberg Groep and ProWinko have submitted a planning application in Toronto for a new ‘landmark’ in the heart of the Canadian city. The plan: develop an 87-story building at 1200 Bay Street.
The Swiss architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron, who previously won the Pritzer Prize, are responsible for the design. Canadian architectural firm Quadrangle will assist them locally.
The design of the slender tower is characterized by the view with a 3:1 ratio for the north-south length, compared to the east-west length. The building has a steel construction surrounded by a glass facade.
The first 15 floors are intended for offices and retail. Above that will be 332 apartments spread over 64 floors. The apartments will be fitted with floor-to-ceiling glass fronts, with the innovation that the windows can be opened for fresh air.
The top three floors are reserved for public facilities, including a restaurant and observatory.
For Kroonenberg Groep, this is the first development in Canada. ProWinko, which has been active in Toronto since 2006 and also has a branch there, developed the Ace Hotel there, which will be completed this year.
