A preliminary rendering for 30 Bay Street has surfaced online. The proposed tower is the latest addition to a number of planned additions to Downtown Toronto's commercial office market which are currently looking for tenants before going ahead. This proposal from Oxford Properties is for a 45-storey building on a lot shared with Ports Toronto's heritage-protected head office. Ports Toronto, recently rebranded, was formerly known as the Toronto Port Authority.
The design, by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, is subject to change and has not been submitted to the City of Toronto for planning approval yet, but Oxford plans to do that later this year.
The building is proposed to have 22,000 square foot floor plates. It has not been revealed how 30 Bay would interface with the Ports Toronto head office at 60 Harbour Street, but the new building would be tied into the PATH system by a connection to the recently opened extension of the pedestrian network south of the Air Canada Centre. 30 Bay will be directly east of the Harbour Plaza Residences and Sun Life Financial Tower currently under construction at 90 Harbour Street.
