[First look + plans] Wilkinson Eyre has won an international contest for a major mixed-use development in Toronto including two skyscrapers
The AJ100 practice defeated an unnamed shortlist of international firms to land the 250,000m² downtown project.
The winning Bay Street scheme features two 48-storey towers which will be connected by a pedestrian bridge hosting green spaces and retail.
Planned to start on site next year, the three hectare project for developer Ivanhoé Cambridge and local transport agency Metrolinx will also deliver a new bus terminal next to Union Station.
Ivanhoé Cambridge chair and chief executive Daniel Fournier said: ‘We want this project to be iconic for Toronto through inspired design and intelligent integration of public transit with green spaces.’
The architect of record will be Toronto-based Adamson Associates.
