Studio Gang to Embark on First Canadian Project With Mixed-Use Toronto Tower
Chicago-based Studio Gang has been commissioned to spearhead its first project in Canada with a mixed-use tower in Toronto. The structure was conceived as part of Slate Asset Management’s efforts to revitalize the city’s Yonge + St. Clair neighborhood through the integration of public art, innovative design, vivacious streetscapes, and open areas. The neighborhood’s first step towards reinvigoration occurred last summer with the installation of an eight-story mural from artist Phlegm.
The forthcoming structure will accommodate residential units and retail, although public consultations will occur later this spring to ensure the project serves the community as effectively as possible. Access to both transit and green space will be available as well. Studio Gang has designed the project to stand out in the Toronto skyline with an emphasis on sustainability and efficiency.
