About the project

One Delisle is a 44-storey condo proposed on Yonge just north of St Clair in Midtown Toronto, designed by Studio Gang Architects for Slate Asset Management.  Located at the soutwest corner of Yonge and Delisle Avenue, the tower is composed of 8-storey-high elongated hexogonal modules pieced together in a honey comb pattern.  A two-storey base creates a human scale at the sidewalk level, while above, the tower’s shap morphs from a square base to a 16-sided rounded peak.  

A series of elongated hexagonal modules pieced together in a honeycomb pattern transition the tower from a rectilinear base up to circular floor plates at its peak, giving the tower a distinct skyline presence. At street level, the podium would include a restoration and relocation of an existing Art Deco façade, forming part of a pedestrian-scaled base building at the corner of Yonge and Delisle. New streetfront retail opportunities will include a large second floor rooftop patio overlooking Yonge Street.

Area profile

This grander vision and the interactions with neighbouring structures informed several aspects of the building. Much detail went into the design of the base, which responds to the 2-storey datum line of the storefront buildings along Yonge Street. 

The historic facade of one building will be retained, but will be pushed back a full 3.5 metres to create a wider 7-metre sidewalk along Yonge Street. The remainder of the base is designed with a human scale in mind, maintaining the 2-storey height and pulling back further from Delisle Avenue to create an 8-metre-wide sidewalk. 

The pedestrian environment and human scale are important components of Slate’s ambitious plans to improve the streetscape around Yonge and St. Clair in order to create a more inviting and walkable neighbourhood.

Delisle Parkette

Along with the new building, the Delisle Parkette on the west side of the site will be redesigned and enlarged as part of Slate’s larger makeover of the area. The surface parking lot to the east of the parkette will be combined with the existing green space, thereby enlarging it by 50%, and a pedestrian connection will slot between 30 and 40 St. Clair Avenue to the south to provide mid-block pedestrian access to St. Clair. 

Furthermore, the various underground parking garages of the buildings on this block will be combined and reorganized into one large garage, allowing for the removal of two of the five existing parking entrances and the coordination of underground loading and services. This will help to create a more pedestrian-friendly environment at street level.
