It was known that it was largely a rezoning exercise when it was initially proposed for property resale. A development will likely happen there eventually, but will probably look different.

Toronto doesn't have any cross-braced skyscrapers, looking forward to The One.

Agree. What an utter piece of garbage and it's in a prominent spot.

ARCHITECTURE

A ziggurat for King West: Take a peek at Bjarke Ingels’s plan for Toronto


Toppling Torontonians’ expectations of towers, star architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group has imagined a community of ‘pixellated’ modules harkening back to the utopianism of Expo 1967’s Habitat, Alex Bozikovic writes


ALEX BOZIKOVIC

The Globe and Mail Last updated: Friday, Feb. 19, 2016 5:25PM EST



BIG’s new Toronto building gathers apartments into ‘peaks,’ which promise to offer an unusual intimacy between neighbours.


BIG

“How can architecture build community?” That’s the title of a public talk Bjarke Ingels will deliver this week, and it captures the ambition of BIG’s design for a site on downtown Toronto’s King Street West.

The sentiment is warm and fuzzy. The design, however, is radical: BIG has imagined a complex that would be unlike any other building in the city – or, indeed, North America. The scheme blends an unusual stack-of-blocks form, and adds a complex weave of public and private spaces underneath and within the heart of the building itself.

Bjarke Ingels, starchitect: Where high design meets the street
Is he a revolutionary, a huckster or a little bit of both? The world’s hottest architect is set to remake Canada’s cities. Alex Bozikovic profiles one of the most controversial figures in contemporary design.

The still-unnamed project comprises about 725,000 square feet; plans call for more than 500 apartment units. That represents very high density on this site – the numbers are likely to be negotiated down during the process of winning city approvals. Yet, if it is built in anything like its proposed form, it will be a landmark that enriches the city’s public realm.

Wow, that's one of Bjarke's few designs that I really like. It's like a more modern Habitat 67. That courtyard is so cool. I also like that the existing buildings/facades are retained.

Forum members in the Toronto and Canada sections seem to universally love BIG designs. This one is no exception. It's quite a complicated site to work with as one has to incorporate a string of heritage buildings, add infill, and substantially add to the density of the strip.

Not only is the solution perfect given these parameters but it's beautiful and unique. In a city seeking creativity and some show piece architecture, this one will get the attention of the local population.

It's a modern take on Montreal's Habitat 67 but Toronto doesn't have anything quite like this. As successful as Habitat 67 has been, this promises to be more successful as it will blend into an existing streetscape.
