LOOKING UP: Spotlight on One Bloor

Look up in the sky at the Yonge & Bloor intersection, the city’s unofficial dividing line between downtown and midtown Toronto. It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No… it’s a CRANE!! And it’s 75 storeys up.

Currently under construction from Great Gulf and designed by architect Hariri Pontarini—with stylish Cecconi Simone handling interior duties — One Bloor is perhaps already Toronto’s most iconic address. Well, it’s also set to become the most luxe condo offering in town too.

A gateway to Bloor-Yorkville, just steps from from high-fashion boutiques and designer shops such as Holt Renfrew, Hermès, Cartier, Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton, and Chanel? Check. A six-storey podium offering grand residential terraces and balconies configured to maximize views? Check. Suites (with 9-foot ceilings and pre-engineered hardwood floors) that are infused with natural light from massive windows? Check. An expansive spa area with three treatment rooms, plus separate his and hers with cold plunges, hot plunges, jet massages, experience showers, Laconium (steam therapy) and Tepidarium (aroma steam therapy) suites? Check. An outdoor terrace showcasing a series of lounges (think fireplace look-outs, TVs, and day beds), two sculpture gardens, a bar, a private dining room with full kitchen, and a billiards room? Check. Custom-designed high-speed elevators to access it all?Check.

The impressive – and we mean IMPRESSIVE – list goes on. But don’t just take our word for it. Because as you see, the numbers don’t lie!

(PS. Try not to confuse One Bloor—on the east side of the intersection—with upcoming The One—on the west—which is a whole other story! Stay tuned…)
