The 50 Bloor Street West re-development plan celebrates Bloor Street as the most iconic retail fashion street in Canada. Welcoming by day and dazzling by night, the design for the longest retail frontage on and below Bloor Street provides a breathtaking opportunity to add shops, services, offices, homes, public amenities, and a publicly accessible park, all on one strip. Designed in the spirit of the Rockefeller Center, this development connects to the flagship Holt Renfrew department store, and has above and below ground connections to the surrounding neighbourhood and city. Within the city’s “height peak”, the signature tower inspired by fashion and sustainable design rises 83 storeys above ground, while the 600 unit luxury rental development provides homes for families to experience everything the neighbourhood and the city have to offer.
