Canada’s second tallest residential tower is set to be built in Toronto, adding more to the city’s iconic landscape. Concord Sky, which will house about 1100 units, is also set to have a system of dedicated cycle-focused amenities.
According to the developer, Concord Sky will stand at 299 m tall and will be the fourth tallest structure in Canada overall. Located at Yonge and Gerrard, construction is set to be remobilized next month.

This week, Concord announced it is investing in “healthy living” within its new tower with a dedicated cycle-focused feature, including a Gear Room, which will allow residents to tune their bikes, snowboards or skis via condo-provided shared tools.
It is also set to have a bike washing station as well as a dedicated bike elevator for direct access to the ground level; lockers devoted to easy storage of bikes will free up condo closet space and lend to a clutter-free life in-suite; a cycling simulator spin room so that residents will have the option to exercise indoors on rainy days, states Concord.
“By supporting our residents’ active lifestyle and investing in a top of the line air purification system with Concord BioSpace, we’re responding to a global desire for healthier, hassle-free living where technology and innovative design intersect,” said Isaac Chan, Vice President, Sales and Marketing at Concord Adex.
“Concord Sky’s ‘next generation’ building design with its uncompromised bike program, is a continuation of our health, wellness and sustainable approach to downtown living.”
Additionally, with wait times and distancing now a 2022 issue (and probably beyond), the building will be outfitted with 11 high-speed elevators “featuring mobile elevator e-call for better traffic flow.”
Concord Sky says its sharp design stems from world-renowned KPF Architects, who are the visionaries behind some of the world’s tallest buildings including One Vanderbelt in New York and Lotte World Tower in Seoul.
“A defining presence in Toronto’s skyline, the new landmark will feature an animated light program running down the exterior of the building, serving as a beacon to the downtown core,” states Concord.
Set to be at 95 stories high, Concord Sky is now due to be complete in 2026.
