Toronto, ON, Canada
Redefining Life on the Water's Edge
Situated in the heart of the emerging East Bayfront waterfront district and only five minutes from Union Station, Bayside Toronto is located on a 13-acre site along the water's edge between Lower Sherbourne Street in the west and Parliament Street in the east.
This vibrant, mixed-use waterfront community is part of a 2000-acre waterfront revitalization—the largest such initiative in the world. Hines was selected as the Master Developer for this project through an international competition that drew 17 proponents.
Bayside Toronto will contain more than two million square feet of residential, office, retail and cultural uses. The office buildings, called Queens Quay I and II, will be designed by world-renowned architects Pelli Clark Pelli, while the first residential phase, named Aqualina at Bayside Toronto, will be designed by New York's Arquitectonica. Bayside will be a year-round urban destination that will combine functionality and architectural distinctiveness with some of Toronto's best public spaces. The Bayside community is a vital part of Canada's first LEED® Gold certified neighborhood (Stage 1 Certification achieved under the LEED ND program). Additionally, each building in Bayside is expected to achieve a minimum of LEED Gold certification. Bayside Toronto will offer residents and other users Internet speeds up to 100 times faster than generally available to other users.
