Menkes is planning a three tower project right next to this project an office tower and two mixed use 70 floors and 240 meter towers. Will have to start a thread for it shortly.

steveve Nov 15, 2011 3:26 AM

i dunno.. not sure why people like this so much, it's quite mediocre to me... i feel like a better design could go with this special site.

even MLS and ICE are more interesting in design imo,,

But as far as I know, we don't even have a proper rendering of that one yet.

Toronto is on a roll. I can't wait for the entire waterfront to be built up it will change the look and feel of city for the better.

Funny enough I thought we would be due for a bit of a slowdown while the existing proposals were put into actual development.

That's what I was trying to suggest with my post, but you're right, some kind of official announcement with a floor count and heights is sufficient to start a thread.

SkyscrapersOfNewYork Nov 16, 2011 12:02 AM

This is a stunning design,reminds me of Tour de Toren in Brooklyn.

Unfortunately our project won't look that good. Right now I'm praying 120 harbor is curtain wall glass cladding.

It looks like it will be, but still I'm praying.

LeftCoaster Nov 16, 2011 2:47 PM

It looks like a window wall system to me, you can see the spandrels lines all over the rendering.

It might actually end up being that new hybrid system seen on museum tower, which could look pretty good here.

Really?? MLS??

I worked on that project so I should be biased, but even I think they are some of the worst tall buildings in the city. They are so bland, and the parts of them that aren't bland are just plain ugly. The only saving grace is the great massing of the podium that makes the area feel much more urban.

yaletown_fella Nov 16, 2011 8:31 PM

I like it. It definetly looks like a higher quality hybrid system. I hope the window system accent lines are finished in brushed aluminum. A standard glossy plastic spandrel would be dodgy.

caltrane74 Nov 17, 2011 4:06 AM

A hybrid system would be ok. - Better than window wall

That's what I was thinking. MLS has a decent podium, but the towers are completely forgettable.

• Reaching for new heights, Build Toronto working with Tridel on this tower.
• 75 floors and potentially the tallest Condo in the City
• major issue will be auto ingress/ egress
• Potentially solved by offering less parking

Architect Rudy Wallman stated that when he was asked by Tridel to create an iconic design for this high-profile site he turned to nature for inspiration. It is the shimmering essence of the Northern Lights which Wallman hopes to capture in the skin of this tower. Vertical bands of windows will extend from the building's four sides. Those strips will extend at different angles and will be clad in differing tones, catching the light at different intensities throughout the day. At night those strips will be lit for dramatic effect, with the vertical architectural gestures culminating in fins reaching skyward to the top of the building's mechanical penthouse. That crown will be sheathed so that it begins to blend the building into the sky.

When they say 'Potentially tallest condo' does that auger a possible height increase ?

Either that or it's hyperbole, because at 816' it's nowhere near.

ya, this tower is basically a box with a triangular podium... not very balanced looking or unique imo... MLS's cladding is mediocre, but towers geometry is balanced alongside the podium...

Why not inch it up passed 1000 ft for once, they are after all planning 3 large towers shy of it.

“If we go higher, we have to implement different things that make the building stable and safe,” said Ritchie. “There’s a saw-off in terms of how high we can go before we have additional costs that maybe we can’t get back. We’d love to go higher, sure, but the math just doesn’t work.”

From this VERY interesting article below:

caltrane74 Nov 23, 2011 1:13 PM

Toronto engineers are now planning for the next phase of highrise development where towers between 80 to 110 stories becomes the norm. It's all about making it highly cost efficient and highly profitable to build at these heights and we'll end up seeing alot more towers in this range.

It's happening now.

caltrane74 Nov 24, 2011 1:00 AM

On my way back from the ACC I grabbed this shot

Looks like a development is planned for across the Street fro
90 Harbour, which has been renamed 1 York.

http://i916.photobucket.com/albums/a...photo-1513.jpg

Anyone know what this development is all about?

caltrane74 Nov 24, 2011 1:21 AM

I have a rendering for 1 York

70 floors x 2 = 240 meters x 2

Previously 90 Harbour

Going to Tim Hortons now!

Innsertnamehere Nov 24, 2011 2:48 AM

Different building. This is 120 harbour or 10 York.

Travis007 Nov 24, 2011 2:50 AM

Cal is so goofed up from the JayZ concert. :D

Must have been good times. Classic Cal!

caltrane74 Nov 24, 2011 7:43 PM

Well there were 16 articles regarding the launch of this tower yesterday. And that's before it's even gone to sales. Wonder how long it will take for them to sell this one out.

caltrane74 Nov 25, 2011 2:16 PM

Another article this one regarding the design and height of 10 York.

Biff Nov 25, 2011 2:32 PM

I know a lot of people will say they don't like this building and it's just another box, but i really like it. I think the proportions - height and width really work well. I don't know if it could be much taller and be proportioned. I like box buildings that are slender and soar and i think, barring finish and materials that the exterior will be interesting.

For me, this could be one of my favorite Toronto buildings. As i have said before, i really don't like Trump and think it turned out really poorly from what it had a chance of being.

I can't wait to see what the facade ends up looking like and hope there are no changes to its proportions.

caltrane74 Nov 26, 2011 2:25 PM

It looks as though it will be a very classy building. The height is a bonus.

caltrane74 Dec 2, 2011 12:38 AM

An article on if the city should be getting into the condo game


10 York is a partnership between the city and Tridel

Toronto is a beast, love it!

DrNest Jan 19, 2012 3:59 PM

That last rendering Caltrane74 posted looks great. It's a difficult plot of land within which to design a good looking building, but this definitely works.
Looking forward to seeing the final thing.

LeftCoaster Jan 19, 2012 6:34 PM

The last rendering Cal posted was a prelim design that got shot down by the city. The current plans can be found in the first post.

DrNest Jan 19, 2012 7:31 PM

Pity, because I prefer the design of the roof from the the preliminary rendering. However, that said, the cladding and walls of the latest design look much better in my opinion.

caltrane74 Jan 23, 2012 4:04 PM

I think the height on this one will be 253 meters.

LeftCoaster Jan 23, 2012 4:15 PM

Well once we get some confirmation I'll update the title, but I'm waiting for an official document.

caltrane74 Jan 24, 2012 7:28 AM

Surprised the PDF files have yet to be released.

Well the info is out there, somewhere.

WibblyWobbly Jan 27, 2012 9:56 PM

Wow! That building reminds me of Yarras Edge 1 in Melbourne. Except its a lot taller. It looks really sleek and classy but has some pattern to it. Me like:tup:

NYC GUY Jan 28, 2012 2:16 AM

Nice building. It reminds me of Tour de Toren in Brooklyn, NY just this is taller.

caltrane74 Feb 15, 2012 1:02 PM

Looks like Tridel is facing great interest in its 10 York Development.

253 Meters tall goes on Sale in April - could sell out fast.

General consensus is this tower begins construction next year. When it begins, it will pick up the number 2 slot on the top ten constructors, behind Aura.

Tridel, Toronto’s biggest condo developer, is already fielding calls for the 783 units of Ten York and plans to start selling in April, more than a year before the C$295 million project begins construction.
“There’s a tremendous amount of interest,” said Jim Ritchie, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Tridel. “We have thousands of names of people who want to buy here.”

DrNest Mar 8, 2012 3:27 PM

The cladding on 10 York reminds me a little of the Oshawa Court building. Which I really like the look of on its 6 floors, so on something this tall it is very likely to look fantastic.

colemonkee Mar 8, 2012 6:10 PM

Looking at the higher res render, it really has a strong resemblance with the Toren in Brooklyn, at least in terms of the cladding. Which is a good thing, in my opinion. The Toren turned out great.

Also looking at this, you can see that it's not just a box. It's actually an irregular pentagon. The north side has an angle in it as it relates to the angle of the Gardiner, and as a result the east side is a bit longer (or wider). I never noticed that until looking at the more detailed render. This makes this tower far more interesting to me for some reason.
