200 Storeys Coming To Harbour Street
UPDATE: I corrected the map above after I received some great info from a Jimmy Jax (see the comments section), and I added a rendering of the RBC office tower.
No, Toronto is not getting a 200 storey condo building, but a couple of developers are planning some massive projects in the heart of the York Centre neighbourhood.
Menkes is planning not one but two 70-storey towers on their site at 90 Harbour street, directly south of Maple Leaf Square on the other side of the Gardiner. Tridel is also planning a 75-storey tower just west of there on a triangular shaped lot directly south of where the ICE towers will be located. Three 70+ storey towers = more than 200 storeys of condos and over 2000 units coming soon to this location. Wow. To put that in perspective, the two towers of Maple Leaf Square have around 872 units combined.
I put together the graphic above to try to illustrate what’s happening in the area. Infinity 3 and ICE 1&2 are under construction. Tridel and Menkes are in the proposal stage, and RBC is going to be the lead tenant in a new office tower to be built on Queen’s Quay just east of York. I am not sure what the future of the site with the question mark on it is (if anyone knows please let me know). The one above the ICE site will be a commercial building. The one east of the Menkes site is currently the famous Harbour Sixty steak house.
Below is a cool rendering which gives you an idea of how the proposed Tridel building will interact with the ICE towers. For more information on any of these condo projects, please contact me.
Now a rendering of the RBC office tower:
