CIBC Square

Adamson Associates Architects is the Executive Architect for the new CIBC Square, an iconic forward-thinking development located in the heart of the Union Station Heritage Conservation District in downtown Toronto. Sited on a three million square foot campus, the project includes two high-rise commercial towers that will provide approximately 1.6 million square feet of premium office space, amenity and support areas. The exterior facade of the tower is composed with prismatic diamond-shaped motifs with multi-storey backlit lanterns at the tower top that is destined to make a dramatic impact on the Toronto skyline.

The first phase of the development, now underway, is comprised of a 50-storey building containing a 1.6 million square foot office tower and podium featuring a dramatic multi-storey office entrance lobby on Bay Street, with 3 levels of below-grade parking — connected to Toronto’s underground PATH network. Housed within the podium is a new Metrolinx GO Bus Terminal which capitalizes on its proximity to Union Station and the Gardiner Expressway with future connections to the Waterfront LRT and TTC to create a larger, more efficient Transit Hub for the City. An elevated Sky Park will connect the two towers.
