BIGGEST OFFICE PROJECT IN TORONTO SINCE 1990s PROGRESSES
Elevators and other mechanical elements are being installed in the south tower of the 49-story, 237.7-m-tall CIBC Square along Bay Street in downtown Toronto as the structure approaches its final form, Urban Torontoreports. Developed by Hines and Ivanhoé Cambridge and designed by U.K.-based WilkinsonEyre Architects with Adams Associates, the structure is the largest downtown Toronto office project since the 1990s. It will be served by thyssenkrupp elevators outfitted with Captivate digital signage displays. Soberman Engineering Inc. consulted on the vertical-transportation system, which also includes escalators down to a new, 10,000-m2transit facility. As such facilities are considered essential, work was allowed to continue during the pandemic, albeit on a limited basis.
