Bay-Adelaide Centre's East Tower represents the second phase in establishing a new architectural landmark for Toronto's financial district.
Adamson Associates Architects is the Architect of Record for the Bay Adelaide East Tower in Toronto’s financial district. Designed by KPMB Architects, the project comprises a 44-storey office tower and a six-storey podium that adjoins 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 82,408 gsf glass-enclosed podium provides the main entrance sequence and offers various amenity areas serving the prime tenant.
The revitalized building at 132 Yonge, intended for use as a restaurant or retail space, now features historical facades, relocated from a Georgian building that previously stood at the corner of Yonge and Adelaide. The historical character of the facades, in counterpoint with the adjacent glass-enclosed podium, serves to animate the pedestrian experience on Yonge, as well as on Temperance Street.
