We're excited to announce that, following a comprehensive international search, renowned firm Foster + Partners has been selected to serve as lead architect on our new Toronto waterfront project.
"This is a further signal of our efforts to lead by design,” says our principal Sam Crignano “Foster + Partners are among the very elite of architects in the world today."
Castlepoint Realty’s Alfredo Romano sees bringing Foster + Partners here as a "huge win for the City of Toronto and the Waterfront. It’s a game changer."
A joint venture of award winning architects Peter Clewes of Architects Alliance, Bruce Kuwabara of KPMB of Toronto, and Landscape Architect Claude Cormier of Montreal complete the Design Team.
Led by Foster + Partners, the design team and 3C Lakeshore Inc. (a joint venture between Cityzen Development Group, Castlepoint Realty Partners of Toronto and Continental Ventures Realty of New York) are meeting this week in London to start the process of designing a vibrant neighborhood on Toronto’s waterfront.
Subsequent design sessions are scheduled for both Toronto and New York and newly minted plans will be unveiled later this year.
"The Waterfront represents a special opportunity for Toronto’s growth. We are elated to have Foster + Partners lead in designing this exciting new neighborhood and our first venture in Canada," states Jane Gol of New York's Continental Ventures Realty.
At over 13 acres, the 3C site is the largest contiguous tract of land on Toronto’s East Bayfront. Zoned for 2.5 million square feet of residential, retail, hotel, entertainment and cultural uses; it is also the single largest development project in downtown Toronto.
