The submission documents for 1200 Bay Street — the supertall being designed by Herzog & de Meuron and Quadrangle Architects — are now publicly available through the City of Toronto’s development applications website. I went through the plans today out of curiosity. Below are the typical residential floors. The three tranches shown here are floors 19-46, 48-79, and 81-84. Note the side elevator core and the east-west shear walls — both of which I was expecting to see.
And here are some of the main project stats:
- Site area after laneway widening: 890.1 square meters
- Total gross floor area (residential & non-residential): 54, 898 square meters
- Floor space index: 61.67
- Building height (excluding mechanical penthouse): 324 meters
- Number of residential suites: 332
- Vehicular parking spaces proposed: 0
- Bicycle parking spaces proposed: 673
As a rule and out of professional courtesy, I do not comment on other people’s projects on this blog (other than to occasionally point out awesome and ambitious projects). But I do enjoy going through drawing sets to see what others are doing and to see what I might learn. And I am similarly happy to collaborate with others who may want to learn from what we are doing.
