Plans were recently revealed showing four striking skyscrapers in Toronto's Midtown.  Designed by renowned architecture firm Rafael Viñoly Architects and marking the office's inaugural venture into Canada, the skyscrapers will offer a total of 2,364 residential units alongside 54,506 square feet (5,064 square meters) of public space. The development will integrate office and retail amenities around the public areas, enhancing the urban landscape.  

Situated at 90-110 Eglinton Avenue East and 150-165 Eglinton Avenue East, the high-rises promise to redefine the skyline. Madison Group, a prominent Toronto-based development firm, is leading the project with Turner Fleischer Architects and MPFP Landscape Architecture are onboard as the architect of record and landscape designer, respectively. The buildings located at 90-110 Eglinton Avenue East will reach 58 stories, featuring 1,035 residential units and 25,565 square feet (2,375 square meters) of public space. Meanwhile, those at 150-165 Eglinton Avenue East will stand at 61 stories, offering 1,329 units and 28,850 square feet (2,680 square meters) of public space.

Emphasizing community integration, the project will feature amenities like a public amphitheater, adventure playground, and inviting open spaces with cafes and patios. The towers' design, characterized by red paneling, pays homage to the area's architectural heritage while introducing a modern aesthetic. Madison Group underscores Viñoly's personal involvement in championing the project's emphasis on public space, reflecting his vision for community-oriented design.

The project is anticipated to commence in 2025.
