The commercial office part of One York was the winner of the Large Commercial/Industrial category, which is part of a 2 million s.f. mixed-use development along the Central Waterfront in the new South Core of Toronto. One York is Toronto’s highest-scoring LEED Core+Shell certified office project to date – achieving Platinum certification at 89 points. The 35-storey office tower is one of three towers (two are residential) rising from a 3-storey retail podium. The 4th floor of the podium provides public roof garden access, a shared food court and a significant health/fitness centre. Together, all connected components create a unique metropolis-like complex inspired by the Waldorf Astoria in NYC.
