  5. http://urbantoronto.ca/news/2019/01/mirvishgehry-development-resubmitted-two-supertalls DT Toronto: Mirvish+Gehry Development Resubmitted as Two Supertalls The tallest Frank Gehry-designed structures in the world are proposed to get taller. The proposed east and west towers of Mirvish+Gehry Toronto are now proposed to rise to 301.55 metres and 329 metres, respectively, to the top of glazed parapet walls crowing the towers, following a submission by Great Gulf for Official Plan and Zoning Bylaw amendments with revised plans. The proposed heights place both towers above 300 metres, the number at which the Council for Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat recognizes a tower as a 'supertall'. There are currently 91 supertall skyscrapers in the world, 17 of which are in the United States. There are none currently in Canada, although 1 is currently under construction in Toronto at Bloor and Yonge, and dubbed The One. 101 other supertalls are under construction around the world, nearly all of them in Asian and Arabian Gulf countries. There are also 3 'megatalls' in the world, 600 metres and taller, with another 3 under construction. The east and west towers, approximately 27 and 24 metres taller, respectively, than the previous plan, now have one fewer inhabited floor each, coming in at 81 and 91 storeys. The height difference comes from taller floors, an indication that the developer is anticipating a demand for higher ceilings in what will be considered luxury suites. The zoning bylaw amendment that achieved approval for the previous version noted that neither tower would cast a shadow on the north sidewalk of Queen Street, three blocks to the north and protected as a Heritage Conservation District. New Sun and Shadow Studies indicate a small additional shadow impact during the mornings at the Spring and Fall Equinoxes, dates at which the City judges shadow impact. It remains to be seen if the City will accept the small incremental shadow increase. There are many more differences than merely a change in height to the towers. Especially notable is that a high-end hotel is now part of the recipe for the west tower, replacing 237 residential suites on floors 10 through 20 with 209 hotel rooms and 2 new podium floors of function rooms. The 91st floor of the west tower will also be deduced to the hotel; as yet what use the hotel will make of that floor is not stated in the plans. Total residential suites in the two towers drops to 1,716, for which a total of 572 bicycle storage spaces are proposed. The total number of parking spaces provided is proposed to drop to 454 from 662. Another notable change are new canopies extending over much of Duncan Street (with the honourary name of Ed Mirvish Way on this block) between the east and west towers. The canopies will provide architectural interest at street level while protecting those arriving at the hotel, and sheltering warm-weather outdoor tables at a hotel cafe on the west side of Duncan. Two floors of retail will animate the base of both buildings, while the third floor of the west podium is proposed as commercial office space. Both the Royal Alexandra Theatre and the Princess of Wales Theatre are maintained in the new plan, as is the facade of the heritage Anderson Building, which will now stand as an entrance to a rental space in front of the sculpted metal wall of the west podium. OCAD University will get over 2 floors of space in the east tower podium, some of which is planned to be a new art gallery. The Mirvish Gallery will be established in the Eclipse Whitewear Building at the west end of the west block (across John Street from the Lightbox).

  11. This is actually next to the old Sears HQ which is a pretty cool building in of itself. http://urbantoronto.ca/news/2019/01/ryerson-submits-rezoning-application-41-storey-tower DT Toronto: Ryerson Submits Rezoning Application for 41-Storey Tower In the last few years, Ryerson University has made a number of architecturally significant additions to their campus in Toronto’s Downtown Core. The Snøhetta-designed Student Learning Centre creates an iconic gateway to the campus on Yonge Street, while the under-construction Daphne Cockwell Health Sciences Complex is bringing a Perkins + Will-designed tower to Church Street. Now, the University has submitted a rezoning application for what could be the largest project in their expansion, and what their website deems to potentially be their last significant opportunity to add institutional space in an area of downtown with very little re-developable land. Designed by Copenhagen-based Henning Larsen Architects with Zeidler Partnership Architects of Toronto, 202 Jarvis is proposed as a 41-storey tower with institutional, retail, and student residence uses. The building is proposed on a Ryerson-owned parking lot where it will complete the transformation of the Jarvis and Dundas intersection, a process that started with the construction of Pace Condos in the early-half of the decade, a has been joined by Grid Condos and Dundas Square Gardens more recently. The building will consist of an 11-storey academic base with 31,468 square metres of classroom, laboratory, and research space intended for the Faculty of Science. The tower floors above will house a Ryerson-owned and operated student residence with capacity for 551 students to live on campus. 3 floors of bike storage, two of which will be underground, will be able to house over 1,000 bikes and meet the demand for bike storage infrastructure on campus. 576 m² of retail is proposed to serve pedestrian traffic at the corner of Jarvis and Dundas.
