Two IBI Group projects named best Toronto buildings of 2014
TORONTO – Two IBI Group high-rise architecture projects shared first place in UrbanToronto’s “Best Toronto Building of 2014” poll held last week.
The Delta Toronto, located in Toronto’s downtown South Core district, opened to the public on November 27. It’s the first dedicated standalone hotel to open in downtown Toronto in more than 20 years.
The L Tower condominium, at Yonge and Front Streets, was designed by Daniel Libeskind. The distinctive residential tower rises 57 storeys and is home to 600 suites.
“To have two of our buildings share first place in this poll is tremendous and reaffirms our leadership in the area of mixed-use urban high-rise design as it relates to residential and hospitality projects,” said Mansoor Kazerouni, Executive Vice President of Page + Steele/IBI Group Architects and Design Principal for the project.
“Delta’s new flagship hotel has assumed a prominent position in Toronto’s expanding skyline,” he added, “and will undoubtedly become a part of the city’s architectural identity. Congratulations to all associated with this project including our clients – BCIMC and GWLRA, the entire consulting team, and to Delta Hotels.”
Other buildings in the competition included the Aga Kahn Museum and Ismaili Centre (Institutional category), Hive Lofts (Mid-Rise Residential), Fashion House (Mid-Rise Residential), Waterlink at Pier 27 (High-Rise Residential), and Ivory on Adelaide (High-Rise Residential).
UrbanToronto.ca is Toronto’s premier website focused on condos, architecture, urban development, and real estate. The poll was limited to registered members of the site.
