One Bloor

This condo tower is found at 1 Bloor St E at Yonge St and is known as One Bloor. Construction on this site has taken many twists and turns with various owners and designs until finally construction began on this 76 floor building designed by Hariri Pontarini Architects. This is an important corner in the city with Yonge St being the divider between the east end and the west end running from Lake Ontario right up to cottage country and Bloor St being one of the major east/west streets in the city. This view will disappear as construction has begun on yet another condo tower  behind the hoardings you can see on the right in the pic taken during the Open Streets event.

Twists and turns is an expression that suits this skyscraper well Pat. Once again I see the similarities between our cities, new and taller buildings going up all the time!
P.s. thanks for asking about my sister. She had ten skin cancers cut out of her legs, many needing skin grafts, a horrendous experience.

The curves make for a visually interesting building.

I really like that look of that building. It reminds me a lot of one in Chicago.

The building's design is very appealing.

There seems to be no limit to the condos height . There is a 80 story condo just completed at Yonge and Queen.

I am glad you caught it before the view closes up. It looks like a fine building.
