Sun Life Financial Tower & Harbour Plaza Residences
35-storey office tower and 63 and 67-storey residential condominium towers at 1 York and 90 Harbour Street respectively.
The One York mixed-use complex for Menkes Developments, designed and overseen from start to finish by Sweeny&Co Architects, contains an 800,000 s.f. Class “A” office building, 150,000 s.f. of PATH connected retail space and two residential condominium towers of 63 and 67 storeys with 1200 suites known as the Harbour Plaza Residences (Residential architectural design: architectsAlliance). Both office and residential portions of the project were substantially leased and sold respectively in the early stages of construction, allowing for the simultaneous build of all three towers without phasing. The high-performance office tower is targeting LEED Platinum certification and is aiming to cut energy consumption to less than half compared to traditional office buildings. Every office floor is equipped with advanced technology designed for human comfort and health, delivering optimal lighting, temperature and air down to the individual worker. Companies that are moving into a healthier and more comfortable workplace at One York include lead tenant Sun Life Financial, as well as Healthcare of Ontario Pension Plan Realty (co-developer in One York) and CIBC Mellon.
The office tower was completed in 2016, while the two residential towers are scheduled for completion Summer 2017.
