TORONTO | Wellesley on the Park | 194m | 60 fl | U/C

Address: 11 Wellesley Street West
Developer: Lanterra Developments
Architect: KPMB & Page+Steele / IBI Group

Still not sure about the exact height. Consultation meeting last night showed a one tower proposal as shown below which looks exactly like the original render released some time ago.

Original render.

This one is going to be called "Wellesley on the Park" and is expected to launch early 2014. Additional renderings courtesy of UrbanToronto.

New rendering thanks to devjohnson. This one could be over 60 stories (200+ meters) - height is not official as of yet.

Details from interchange42 (admin at UrbanToronto):

That's come about from further talks with locals and the councillor's office, and in fact Bruce Kuwabara credited Kristyn Wong-Tam for pushing for "anything but a box" in the first place on this design.

Meanwhile, the balcony detailing has been tweaked more too. There are now two floors of offices in the podium. The community facility that was going to be built over the Opera Place garage entrance in the northwest corner of the site has been dropped, and instead the garage entry will be disguised with a green wall and green roof. I've been insisting that the east wall of Aria's podium at Opera Place be screened with green too.

City Planning is crossing their fingers that the legal work can get done before the end of the summer so that Council can pass this before the go into election mode. A stratified transfer of the surface park area to the City needs to happen before any work can start on the park, some of which could open before the tower is built as the parking garage already exists beneath it.

More images coming next!

Looks like a decent design, but what a crappy renders. Very poor quality stuff.

Some fresh renderings from BuzzBuzzHome.

I have to admit, this one is going to look mighty fine!

Thanks for that. This pit is unbelievably large. Not many of this size, anywhere.

This pit's huge. I hoped this lot would have been set aside for a park/public space entirely but do like the looks of this tower. It will also help fill in the skyline which lacks bulk, height, and tower density between College and Bloor. We'll need another 20-30 towers before this stretch of downtown starts filling in nicely.
