Toronto’s first supertall skyscraper.

It’s no secret that there’s been a lot of development in Toronto in the last decade. When completed, The One will be Toronto’s first supertall skyscraper. Being located at Yonge and Bloor, one of Toronto’s major intersections, means ground floor residents will have direct access to the subway, mid-floor residents will see over the rooftops of neighbouring buildings, and top floor residents can clearly see the Gardiner Expressway (along with Lake Ontario and New York state). The One was designed by international architecture firm Foster and Partners with local firm Core Architects. We are providing noise and vibration mitigation because of the location and sheer size of the project. Careful analysis was done to determine the impact from the TTC subway and to ensure the novel HVAC systems would not impact suite owners. We determined the types and amount of noise that would be created so we could identify the most appropriate building materials to mitigate noise for residents. The residences are not yet occupied, so we will continue working with the team for site inspections and testing as people make their homes in the sky.
