One Delisle Condos in Midtown Toronto
One Delisle Condos Rising 44 storeys at the southwest corner of Yonge and Delisle Avenue, the tower is composed of 8-storey-high elongated hexagonal modules pieced together in a honeycomb pattern. A two-storey base creates a human scale at the sidewalk level, while above, the tower’s shape morphs from a square base to a 16-sided rounded peak. UrbanToronto had a chance to sit down with Jeanne Gang to discuss the design of what could become Toronto’s next iconic landmark.
Along with the new building, the Delisle Parkette on the east side of the site will be redesigned and enlarged as part of Slate’s larger makeover of the area. The surface parking lot to the east of the parkette will be combined with the existing green space, thereby enlarging it by 50%, and a pedestrian connection will slot between 30 and 40 St. Clair Avenue to the south to provide mid-block pedestrian access to St. Clair. Furthermore, the various underground parking garages of the buildings on this block will be combined and reorganized into one large garage, allowing for the removal of two of the five existing parking entrances and the coordination of underground loading and services.
