TORONTO. BY KAT ZEMAN

The iconic skyline-altering addition to Toronto's existing architectural marvels is the brainchild of Tridel, a major real estate developer based in Toronto. The $200 million project features high-end

four-story glass lobby, high-speed elevators and six levels of
underground parking. Roughly 1,500 square feet is designed for
retail, though specifics have yet to be decided. The building will also
