That keen sense of civic duty is reflected in the standard of amenities, quality of design and finishes as well as the all-round vision for The One.
The One is Canada’s first officially-recognized “super tall” building, shooting up from its prime midtown positioning. World renowned for their creative approach to design, architects Foster + Partners have devised an innovative structure that addresses the complexities of building a tower this high.
A multi-disciplinary team of structural engineers, construction experts, designers and architects worked together to find ways to carry the ‘stack effect’ of the structure while allowing for maximum pillar-free spaces on the interior.
