Ok, it's officially on the city's website. It lists 83, not the 82 I mentioned earlier. There is also a substantial non-residential component.
Redevelopment of Holt Renfrew Site with a mixed-use condo development inclusive of existing and new space. It will include one 83-storey residential tower rising from an 8-storey commercial podium containing Holt Renfrew department store as well as other retail and service uses.
An 8s Holts is something - it's what, 4s right now?
So I assume we have 75 floors of residential, plus 8 floors of retail. If the current Holts is 4 floors, is it reasonable to assume that 8 floors would be twice the height? How tall is the 4s Holts right now?
(The way the application is phrased, it would be 83 residential floors rising above 8 commercial floors for a total of 91 floors and definite supertall status, but I doubt that is what they actually meant.)
75s of residential might be about 254m (10 York is 75s and 253.4m, One Bloor is 75s and ~254m) and adding 8s of Holts retail (36m to 44m?) would put the total height at 290m to 298m -- just a hair below FCP.
Of course, it sounds like the Cumberland Terrace project will be supersized as well, and it is also an Oxford project -- I wonder if the rumour about the twin Oxford towers in Yorkville was really about these two separate but nearby projects?
