About project
About project

Adamson Associates Architects was the Architect of Record for the Bay Adelaide East project in Toronto’s financial district. Designed by KPMB Architects, Bay Adelaide East comprises a 44-storey office tower with a 6-storey Podium that connects to an existing building at 132 Yonge Street. The tower is connected to Toronto’s PATH system and has direct access to the 27-kilometre, below-grade public walkway and retail network. The 7,656 gsm glass-enclosed podium provides the main entrance sequence and various function and amenity areas serving the prime tenant.

The existing building at 132 Yonge, intended for use as a restaurant or retail space, received relocated historical facades taken from the Yonge and Adelaide Street facades of buildings that were demolished to make way for the new podium construction. The historical nature of the facades, in counterpoint with the adjacent glass-enclosed podium, serves to animate the pedestrian experience on Yonge and Temperance streets.
