More high-quality images and info courtesy of UT.

The 65 storey condominium and retail complex was designed by David Pontarini of Hariri Pontarini architects. Anna Simone of Cecconi Simone Inc. is handling interior design work. Landscape architect Janet Rosenberg of Janet Rosenberg + Associates is handling the design of the podium's outdoor amenities.

The building's dramatic exterior features large balconies which run in sweeping curves up the tower. The fritted glass balconies give way to expose floor-to-ceiling curtainwall windows in a flowing band on each side.

At night, the luminescent nature of the building's integrated roof-top mechanical penthouse becomes evident as lights glow through clear and fritted glass walls, marking One Bloor's spot at the centre of the city's uptown skyline.

The ground, second, and concourse levels of the podium will feature 100,000 square feet of retail space fronting Bloor and Yonge Streets. A retail lined interior pedestrian walkway will link Yonge Street to the TTC subway entrance in 33 Bloor Street East at ground level.

The podium will feature residential units with large terraces on levels 3 through 6. Some of level 6 and all of level 7 will be given over to a spa recreation club for the residents of One Bloor.

Residential suites in the building will feature 9-foot (approximate) ceilings. Gourmet kitchens and luxurious bathrooms will be finished to high standards and feature Cecconi Simone designed cabinetry. Some of the features pictured below are options to be selected by the buyer.

Don't say this often, but I love this design. I also like the interior, especially the bathrooms. Adore the layout, the curves, the angles and the progressive nature of the podium. This beats the Bazis proposals by a country mile and if I may say, for those of you living in Toronto, you are lucky to be living there at this moment in time. Toronto is really branching out in a good way architecturally.

Those units should be quite fabulous due the size of those terraces.

Looks like a height increase is imminent here. 5-7 more floors are being sought which would put the new height close to 240 m. 70-72 floors?

No updates on this one for a long time apparently. Good news though, a construction trailer showed up last week.

Well, X condo got registered today, which means that the road is now open for Great Gulf Homes to soon start constructing X2 also because X2 is for 95% sold out right now, so who knows, one of these days, they will start digging here too.

Let's hope so

It's officially quoted as being 70 floors and 238 meters.
However, it'll probably (thankfully) push a tad higher as the project is still in sales.
