Press release from today......

Southcore Financial Centre celebrates milestone with topping-off of PwC Tower at 18 York Street and groundbreaking event
Construction of flagship Delta Toronto and Bremner Tower set to begin in December 2010


TORONTO, Nov. 26 /CNW/ - British Columbia Investment Management Corporation (bcIMC) announced today the completion and initiation of significant phases in the development of Southcore Financial Centre (SFC) with the topping-off ceremony of the PwC Tower and a groundbreaking event for another office tower and the new flagship Delta Toronto hotel.

The 650,000 sq. ft. PwC Tower at 18 York Street will be headquarters to PwC, a leading accounting and consulting firm, and is scheduled for occupancy in fall 2011. The placing of the final beam on the rooftop of the PwC Tower concludes SFC's first phase of development, involving 542 construction days and a dedicated effort by the EllisDon construction team. Following the topping-off event, a groundbreaking ceremony launched SFC's second phase of development: a second office building — the 30-storey, 700,000 sq. ft. Bremner Tower — and the 45-storey Delta Toronto - a next-generation, premium four-star hotel.

"Today's topping off ceremony and groundbreaking event are important milestones in our commitment to Toronto's emerging southcore district, and the partnerships with the companies that will soon occupy the premises," said Chuck Swanson, Vice President, Real Estate, bcIMC. "With this project, bcIMC is advancing the development of sustainable office space designed to benefit tenants and their employees, the local community and the environment."

Encompassing a full block from York Street to Lower Simcoe Street and within walking distance of King and Bay, the SFC complex will be built to a high level of sustainability with PwC Tower and Bremner Tower targeting LEED® Gold certification.

"With move-in date less than one year away, our people are more excited than ever about the move to PwC Tower," said David Forster, PwC's GTA Managing Partner. "Our new home in Toronto's expanding financial district fits with the firm's commitment to our people, our clients and the environment. PwC Tower brings all our downtown people together, supporting our ability to provide the best service to our clients while creating a collaborative, productive and enjoyable workspace that offers access to public transportation and green design features."

The new Delta Toronto, set to open in 2014, will provide 566 well-appointed, generously sized guest rooms, including 24 extended-stay suites for travelers who are in the city for a longer period of time. The hotel will feature the latest in sustainable design including heat-recovery ventilation, low-flow fixtures, smartcards to control room lighting and air based on suite occupancy, and green roofs throughout the building.

"This four-star hotel will serve as a flagship property for Delta and, through its many innovative features, will allow us to exceed the expectations of our guests," said Hank Stackhouse, president and CEO, Delta Hotels and Resorts. "The Delta Toronto will be strategically located within walking distance to Toronto's financial and entertainment districts, allowing us to fulfill the needs of both business and leisure travellers and connect them to the city in a convenient way."

Centrally positioned between the PwC Tower and the Delta Toronto, SFC's Bremner Tower — projected to be completed by December 2013 — will bridge the adjacent buildings and form the heart of the SFC complex along Bremner Boulevard. SFC's 1.4 million sq. ft. of office space is designed by award-winning KPMB Architects. The Delta Toronto is designed by Paige + Steele / IBI Architects. All three buildings will be connected by more than 14,000 sq. ft. of urban forest areas and pedestrian walkways.

This project is being developed by GWL Realty Advisors Inc. on behalf of bcIMC. To learn more about Southcore Financial Centre, visit www.southcore.ca.

Chaz Yorkville (45 Charles St E)

UrbanToronto recently visited Chaz on Charles,which gave us the opportunity to study the scale model of the building
for a closer look both at how Chaz will meet the street, and at some of its ground level amenities. We will spin around
the scale model, and start with a view from the northeast.


Northeast view of Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd, image by Craig White



Down at street level, this rendering takes in the limestone-clad podium that faces Charles Street.


Street view of Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd



We get in closer to the sidewalk lobby entrance.


Street view of Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd, image by Craig White



The same area, but from the northeast instead of the northwest.


Street view of Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd, image by Craig White



Looking down on the area, we see the layout more clearly. At the right we see the driveway heading to the car drop, and then a snaking
sculpture amidst light poles in the plaza. Below that is the main entrance from the sidewalk, and a path leading the the outdoor landscaped
terrace at bottom. We'll look more at the terrace later in this tour.


Street side of Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd, image by Craig White



Past the lobby entrance we find ourselves in a relaxing space designed by Ceconni Simone. The space is divided into a series of smaller spaces
- a Living Room, a Wet Bar, a Dining Room (with wet bar and catering kitchen) and a Billiards Room - all of which open onto a landscaped outdoor
terrace. The east lobby spaces will be bookable for private functions.


Lobby at Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd



Outside again, we take a look down on the landscaped terrace, created by LandArtDesign.


East terrace at Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd, image by Craig White



This rendering gives us an idea of the terrace during the evening.


Outdoor Terrace at Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd



Looking back at the terrace from the southeast.


East terrace at Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd, image by Craig White



From a distance, the full east side of the building will look like this.


East side of Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd, image by Craig White



We spin 'round to the south. Up near the top we see the Chaz Club with its dramatic two-storey view over the city.
We'll come back for a better look at the club in a future story.


South side of Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd, image by Craig White



Back at ground level we see the terrace from the south end, and sitting areas and bike lock-ups in the plaza area at the back of the building.


South side of Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd, image by Craig White



A rendering gives us a view of the south side of the podium. While it is not readily apparent in the rendering, all sides of the podium will be clad in limestone.


South side of Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd



The west side of the building, as you can see above as well, features the driveway a car drop-off.
The garage entrance is shown correctly in the model below, not the rendering above.


West entrance to Chaz on Charles by Edenshaw Homes and 45 Charles Ltd, image by Craig White



This rendering depicts the car drop-off area.

Theatre Park, as you know, is launching shortly. The building, now approved at 47 storeys, has had some changes since its first incarnation, and now sports a beefed-up podium. The park plan in front is now more fully formed, and includes a restaurant at the base of the tower behind a reflecting pool. No doubt the restaurant will be mobbed prior to the nightly shows at the Royal Alex next door...







I think this is gorgeous!

It was such a good decision to revamp the FCP like that. It's old news, but it really rejuvinates the skyline.

- a distinctive, sail-shaped office tower with street level retail is imagined soaring over the corner of Spadina and Front (according to BlogTO, no render yet)

- a central pedestrian laneway arcs through the development with passageways radiating off between the towers

- retail units range in size from small nooks to large flagship properties

- in each of the mixed-use towers above the stores there are a few floors of office space, then condos and rental apartments

- no cars will be permitted anywhere throughout the development, except underneath

- brick would frame the building's lower floors

As indicated, it was a pic from the architecture firm's site. It likely had characteristics they were trying to emulate in this project.
