Initial designs have been revealed for Union Park in Toronto, a 399,483-m2 (4.3 million-sf) mixed-use development that could be the city’s largest. The 1.6-ha (4-acre) site will be located in the downtown core.

Union Park has been designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects[2] with Toronto’s Adamson Associates Architects[3].

The project will comprise 306,580 m2 (3.3 million sf) of office space across two towers of 58 and 48 storeys. It will also have approximately 800 units of residential rental apartments, and 18,581 m2 (200,000 sf) of destination retail including food and beverage.

The development also creates an opportunity to construct an adjoining 1-ha (2-acre) urban park over the Union Station Rail Corridor. Designed by OJB Landscape Architecture[4], it aims to deliver public green space to the downtown. Additionally, the podium levels will feature large office floor plates of approximately 9290 m2 (100,000 sf) and the Path underground shopping complex will be extended.

Real estate firm Oxford Properties[5] has commenced its public engagement process for Union Park and will be working with stakeholders to advance the municipal entitlement process. Oxford is also working, in conjunction with the city, to align on plans for post-submission engagement to hear additional feedback on its proposal.
