Now that's a tight plot.

It looks very urban, but how is the pedestrian accessibility?

The area is becoming more pedestrian accessible and friendly with each new building that goes up next to the Gardiner Expressway. In this particular spot, the ramp is coming down after the 2015 Pan American Games and a large retail store is planned for the base of the building to its left (east).

The surroundings are really bad. Those parking garages and that highway need to be buried.

They should do like the Big Dig in Boston but without all the digging... start from the ground up and make a new ground-floor open space between all the buildings above the highway. Sort of a modern day version of what was done in Seattle and Edinburgh years ago.

Wedge-Shaped Ten York Rising in Toronto's South Core

Quote:
The development occupies a narrow site bounded by York Street to the east, the Gardiner Expressway to the north, and its Yonge-Bay-York off-ramp (slated to be demolished in the near future) to the south. The now fully formed podium levels will be the site of the porte-cochŔre and garage entrance, as well as residential amenities including a fitness centre, theatre, party room, and an outdoor amenity deck with a swimming pool. The triangular swimming pool can now be seen at the westernmost tip of the podium's upper level in the image below, identifiable by its black waterproof liner.

The image above also reveals that work is now underway on the first of the building's tower floors above the eastern half of the podium. Set back from the podium structure on all sides, the tower will take the form of a less-pronounced wedge, and will be clad in a combination of curtain wall glass and finished metal.

I've never understood why people are willing to live this close to an expressway - they certainly won't be sitting out on the balconies, which the building won't have anyway. Unfortunately, Toronto has always lacked the leadership and the imagination to take the really big steps to greatness, like burying this expressway.

Cool looking tower, but mostly a very interesting spot.

Which makes me wonder, on a technical scale, if that highway could ever be destroyed or downgraded to a more accessible boulevard in the long-term future, and how the towers build around it would benefit from it.

They are ripping down the offramp this summer, so it will get better. This will only be bordered by a single highway by the time it is completed.
