TORONTO | 80 Bloor Street W | 224m | 68 fl | Pro

A proposal has been submitted for an 68 storey tower (potentially 232 meters give or take - calculations of height provided by Mongo). This one is down the street from the 83 storey Holt Renfrew tower proposal.

Details:
80 BLOOR ST W
Ward 27 - Tor & E.York District


Rezoning application to develop the site into a 68 storey residential mixed use building for 68 floors (plus mechanical penthouse) and will include 39,810m2 of residential area (85 bachelor units, 300 one-bedrooms, 123 two-bedrooms, and 57 three-bedrooms) and 3,465m2 of retail space. There will be 181 parking spaces provided below grade for residential use.

Preliminary Renders from 2012 courtesy of ZachBalbino (these renders are no way "official"). Inspiration for the design of the tower were mainly based upon Jean Nouvel's MoMa Tower.





The tower would replace this existing building.

So would this mean that the buildings to the left and right can never be really developed into a something more substantial?

Okay. I don't know if there are plans for the neighbours, but two blind sides would totally ruin it.
