There's another on Pembroke St one street over.

However, those two are the only ones I can think of out of the 2000+ highrises in the city.

I thought there'd be a bunch more, but even some other likely candidates like Theatre Park and Museum House are in the 4,000-6,000 sqft range. 2,000 sqft floorplates are really quite small for a high-rise.

There are a few projects in the works that look like they'd be in that range though:


24 Mercer


33 George


369 King


217 Adelaide



A few common factors they share:
  • Constrained sites with no ability for larger land assemblies.
  • Surrounded by other high-rises - making zoning/community approvals easy.
  • Generally higher-end residential developments - smaller floorplates are desirable for exclusivity & more light.
