Also receiving buzz is Oxford Place, an 11-acre, $30 billion dollar downtown mixed-use redevelopment announced in October by Oxford Properties and designed by Foster + Partners. The project is expected to encompass an expanded Convention Center in addition to more than 4 million square feet of residential, retail and office space, plus a 450,000-square-foot casino and 5.5 acres of public parkland.
We can't look at the Toronto skyline without noticing that the city has gone condo-crazy as residential towers topped by construction cranes grow higher and higher with each passing week. Two of the tallest and highest-profile luxury developments are still years from opening but have generated great interest: Ten York, a 65-story tower designed by Rudy Wallman Architects with interiors by II BY IV Design Associates, and One Bloor East, also topping out at 65 stories and designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects. They are scheduled for completion in 2017 and 2016, respectively.
