Developer Ivanhoé Cambridge has confirmed plans for a major, multi-phased office and transit development in the heart of Toronto’s financial core, just east of Union Station. Designed by London-based Wilkinson Eyre, following an international competition, the two-tower development will rise on both sides of the railway tracks and connect via an elevated public park. The South tower will include a major new GO Bus Terminal serving Union Station and will be topped with commercial retail.

More on the development, after the break.

Rising up to 60 stories tall, the diagrid and faceted glass towers will offer 250,000 square meters of premium office space. Completion of the first tower could be as early as 2018, shortly after the opening of the GO Bus Terminal. Construction is expected to start in 2015.
