Located where the longest street in North America, Yonge Street, meets Lake Ontario, One Yonge will be a truly mixed-use development, re- defining the typical ratio between residential, commercial and retail space within a single city block. This landmark development will comprise six new buildings of varying height with a total of approximately 6.3 million square feet of accommodation including a 40-storey office tower, a 70-storey tower with a hotel and branded residence, and four residential towers surrounding a courtyard with a woonerf-style access.

With extensive retail, the master planned development will transform and re-vitalize the area acting as a gateway for the extensive re-development of the East Don Lands Waterfront area, directly east of the site. This iconic project will also bring a significant change to the public realm and connect to the climate-controlled path allowing users to access Union Station (Toronto’s central train station), the future regional bus terminal and the existing TTC transit stop at Union.

"longest street in North America"

Wikipedia: Yonge Street (pronounced "young street") is a major arterial route connecting the shores of Lake Ontario in Toronto to Lake Simcoe, a gateway to the Upper Great Lakes. It was formerly listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the longest street in the world at 1,896 km (1,178 mi).
