Award-winning consulting and design solutions firm B+H Architects (B+H) has signed a lease with Menkes Developments and TD Greystone Asset Management for 23,008 sf of office space at a heritage building in Toronto. The building on 320 Bay Street was designed by prominent Canadian architect Henry Sproatt and originated as the Canada Permanent Trust Building.
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.
Toronto’s already crowded skyline could see even more new skyscrapers being constructed in the next few years, which could more than double the number of tall buildings in the city, according to a report by Point2 Homes, as explained in the National Post.
A heritage building in Toronto’s financial district will be revitalized as an office environment. Designed by prominent Canadian architect Henry Sproatt, the building was originally the Canada Permanent Trust Building.
Four teams have been shortlisted for the 2020 Venice Biennale in architecture. The Canadian Council for the Arts is also doubling its previous investment to enhance the international profile of Canada’s representation. It is making a contribution of $500,000 toward the 2020 exhibition and acting as commissioner.
