Six years after the Krugarand Corporation first submitted a plan to the City of Toronto to redevelop an office building at 80 Bloor Street West with a 68-storey condominium, a new plan that also covers the property to the west has been submitted for the Bay and Bloor site. The latest submission seeks an Official Plan Amendment from the City to permit a 79-storey tower designed by Giannone Petricone Associates.

 

Renderings of the new proposal show a striking design with both gradual and supper stepped reductions to its floor plate as it rises, tapered inwardly in spots, and clad in a “pleated” curtain wall glazing that would catch light at different angles to give the exterior a sense of motion.

The total gross floor area (GFA) is approximately 121,965 m², the majority of which—114,268 m² or 93.7%—would be residential. A total of 1,430 residential condominium units are proposed in a mix of unit types that includes approximately 8.8% three-bedroom units and 15.5% two-bedroom units. Just shy of 7,700 m² of retail space is proposed at ground level, second level, and one level below ground, accounting for 6.3% of the total GFA.
