The redevelopment has been designed to create a landmark presence at the gateway between the financial district and Toronto’s waterfront.

CIBC Square – 81 Bay Street

CIBC Square, located at 81 Bay Street, in the City of Toronto, is known as the "Railway Lands East", previously known as "Block 2A". The envisaged development involves two office towers (49 & 54-storey) integrated with a regional bus transit station for GO Transit.

Work at CIBC Square includes providing functional designs for the two-storey Metrolinx-GO bus terminal, layout and functional design for the below-grade parking garage, and detailing of vehicular signage and wayfinding. The location and supply of electric vehicle stations, bicycle parking spaces, carpool spaces, and other sustainability-focused transportation elements have also been part of BA's work on the project. BA Group also provided advice on parking control and payment systems, integral to the operation and design of the garage for the combination of office, commercial, and casual users.

Cumberland Terrace – Two Bloor West

Two Bloor West is an L-shaped sliver of land centrally located within the Yorkville neighbourhood of Toronto. The proposed development replaces the existing Cumberland pedestrian concourse connecting Bay and the Bloor-Yonge subway stations with a mixed-use development.  BA Group's key focus was the review and design of new parking and loading facilities to meet the needs of the existing office tower and the proposed development. Our response involves the execution of parking, loading, and traffic studies for the municipal approvals process.
