Bathurst Assembly will leverage innovative approaches to architecture to transform an urban block in downtown Toronto, adding a new 13-storey office building in Phase 1 and a 16-storey residential building in Phase 2. The office portion acknowledges post-COVID workplace reality and incorporates wellness-enhancing features such as improved air quality and access to external terraces, and also uses mass timber as a primary construction material. The residential building is designed for efficient and seamless modular construction, while the overall site planning encourages urban porosity and public realm as it weaves into the existing heritage-heavy fabric of the area.
