Photos Reveal Massive Scale of The One’s Rising Steel Superstructure

Mizrahi Developments‘ The One is bringing Canada’s first supertall—a skyscraper exceeding 300 metres in height—to Toronto’s Yonge and Bloor intersection, and the future landmark’s early above-grade progress is already generating quite the buzz. Earlier this week we caught up with recent construction progress of the 85-storey luxury condo and hotel tower, designed by UK-based architects Foster + Partners with Toronto’s Core Architects, but a new series of photographs sent to us by Mizrahi offers a close-up look at some of the jaw-dropping views from within and around the tower’s rising steel structure. We’re going with a minimum of text here, just enjoy the dramatic images!

The One is currently gunning for even more height than its approved 308.6 metres, seeking approval for a new 94-storey, 338.3-metre height. If granted, the increase would allow The One to hold onto its title as Canada’s tallest building, against the competing 312-metre SkyTower at Pinnacle One Yonge now under construction a few kilometres to the south.
