Redevelopment proposal for this building, 80 Bloor St W & Google Maps view. This address is one property west of the building that fronts the NW corner of Bay & Bloor, though with a proposal this size it's a possibility it may be combined (?). Currently it's an office tower, with a couple of retailers at grade and also a Good Life Fitness. The new proposal details does not indicate any replacement office space, which will certainly raise some points of discussion. To its west is the Harry Rosen flagship.

Yeah, there's no way the city is going to let that office space go (with that said, I have no idea what the zoning is here).

Should be around 232m plus or minus 10m, if it is built to that number of floors.

I took all the purely residential towers in Toronto that are or will be at least 180m tall (22 residential buildings built, under construction and proposed) and divided their combined official heights (4.3917 km) by their combined number of floors (1,445 floors), and multiplied that by 68 floors to give a 'typical' official height for a 68-floor residential building of just over 232m.

Normalizing each of these 22 purely residential buildings to 68 floors results in a range from 218.6m to 245.7m, with the middle 90% of them falling between 221m and 245m in official height.

from a year ago when i was ArchitectsAlliance, i believe they were working on the tower for 80 Bloor st. west
their inspiration for the design of the tower were mainly based upon Jean Nouvel's MoMa Tower

Prelim Renders from July 2012

If this turns out to be the case, it might end up a lot more than 232m in height. The Jean Nouvel tower is designed at 320m and 72 floors, so 68 floors at the same ratio would be 302m. Plus of course being a very definite "non-box".

edit -- although now that I see those July 2012 renders, 80 Bloor West is not nearly as elongated at the MoMO proposal. But it could still be in the 250m-260m range.

I doubt the MoMA Tower inspiration has anything to do with floor heights.
