160 Front Street West
160 Front Street is a new $500M, Class-A, 50-storey office tower.
It has a four-storey podium and four levels of below-grade parking for 324 cars and bike storage for 507 bikes.
The building has a total GFA of approximately 1.63M sq. ft. The six-storey masonry heritage building next to the office tower will be renovated and integrated into 160 Front Street as well.
The tower structure was designed to minimize its resistance to the wind's lateral loads by orienting the main axis of the building parallel to the direction of the site’s prevailing winds.
The resulting design is tapered both at the top and the bottom, assisting the structure when resisting wind, minimizing its effect on the pedestrian realm, and creating a spacious respite to the compressed neighboring sidewalks.
Targeting LEED® Platinum certification and WELL Building Standard certification.
