Chicago Architect Firm to Design $800M Toronto Tower

Freed Developments, a Canadian real estate developer, is planning a new $800 million skyscraper in Toronto. The project, designed by Chicago-based Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS + GG), will feature 100 five-star luxury hotel rooms and 400 luxury condominiums with a sky bar, restaurants, and boutique spa.

“Freed Hotel and Residences will bring an unprecedented sophistication and luxury that is a signature of Freed Developments in Toronto,” said AS+GG Partner Gordon Gill, FAIA. “The formal geometry of the tower is defined by both its arrival and skyline expressions. Diamond-shaped facets create a distinctive arrival and retail experience at street level, while the complimentary faceted silhouette of the tower’s top creates an iconic identity within the Toronto skyline.”

AS + GG is also the architect of the Jeddah Tower project in Saudia Arabia, which would become the world’s tallest tower. Work recently resumed on the stalled 167-story mixed-use project that will include a Four Seasons hotel, apartments, office space and luxury condominiums.
