Ten York to be Tridel’s Tallest Building Yet

Ten York, a proposed 75-storey building, will be Tridel’s tallest building to date. This 774 unit residence is set to launch sometime in spring 2012. Luxurious one bedroom, one bedroom + den, two bedroom, and three bedroom suite designs will soon be available. The building will be located between the Gardiner Expressway and the York St. off-ramp at the northwest corner of Harbour St. and York.

Architect Rudy Wallman’s design for Ten York was inspired by the Northern Lights. To capture that essence, the building’s exterior will have vertical glass boxes, which will shimmer slightly by catching light at different angles.

The landscape architect for the project will be Janet Rosenberg + Associates, while II BY IV Design Associates will bring a unique vision for the interior. Speaking of the interior, it will consist mainly of warm colours and rich palettes. 

This impressive building will offer unique views across Lake Ontario and the City:

The development is a joint partnership between Build Toronto and Tridel. Build Toronto is an independent development corporation created in 2010 by former Toronto mayor David Miller. Its sole shareholder is the City of Toronto.

The site is currently a parking lot and car-impound yard. It is shaped as a triangle, which made designing Ten York an interesting experience, according to Rudy Wallman. The base will retain the triangular shape and function as an above-grade parking area, while also housing mechanical rooms and other amenities.

Stay tuned for more information regarding this monumental project.
