Skyscrapers in Toronto, Montreal
Toronto Getting One of Tallest Office Buildings Yet
Oxford Properties announced plans to build The HUB, a 60-story office tower in downtown Toronto at the northwest corner of Harbour and Bay streets in the transforming South Core, Urban Toronto reported. Its design by London-based Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners features a transparent façade, office floors “hanging” from central piers and a glassed-in winter garden at the top. Containing 1.4 million sq. ft, it will cantilever over the six-story Harbour Commission building, leaving a wide berth. Due to today’s taller office-floor heights and its unusually tall ground floor, The HUB will likely be a contender for Toronto’s tallest office building.
Third Tour des Canadiens Tower Breaks Ground in Montreal
Cadillac Fairview, Canderel and the Montreal Canadiens have broken ground on the third Tour des Canadiens condominium tower, the 55-story-tall Tour des Canadiens 3 (TD3), in downtown Montreal, SkyRise Cities reported. Buoyed by strong immigration, a thriving information-technology sector and low unemployment, Montreal’s real-estate market is healthy, with approximately 1,570 units sold in the fourth quarter of 2017, up 190% from fourth-quarter 2016. Designed by IBI Group with Bélïque Legault Thuot Architects, TD3 will have 565 units and directly connect to public transit. Amenities will include an indoor, Mediterranean-inspired pool and outdoor terrace overlooking the larger Quad Windsor master-planned community.
