Tridel’s Via Bloor: Condos and Retail at Bloor and Parliament – Downtown Toronto’s Next Great Neighborhood.
STEPS FROM THE SHERBOURNE SUBWAY STATION.
Via Bloor is a tale of two buildings set to become a neighbourhood of people, public spaces and culturally rich experiences. Envisioned as a new retail promenade, Tridel will be extending Bloor Street’s famed shopping to create Via Bloor. More than a revitalization, it will inspire you to shop, eat, explore and live. It will become a boulevard of urbanity and greenery framed by Yorkville, Rosedale Village and the Danforth.
The project’s architectsAlliance-designed towers will rise 38 and 46 storeys from a shared podium structure at the narrow end of the wedge-shaped block. Via Bloor’s taller east tower addresses the shape of the block with a rounded triangular floor plate. It perches over the rectilinear podium and ground-level public space, resting on a group of sculptural structural support columns.
The 38-storey building will rise 116.5 metres and contain 372 suites, while the 46-storey tower to the east will rise 138.5 metres, and contain 397 suites. Being built to the south of Rosedale, and to the north of St. James Town—the largest high-rise community in Canada—Via Bloor will put its residents within easy walking distance of both Sherbourne and Castle Frank subway stations on the TTC’s Line 2. To the west is the shopping and dining of the Yorkville area, and to the east is The Danforth.
