The TELUS Tower at 25 York is a world class centre that creates long-term value in Ontario, uniting the Science Centre and Royal Conservatory of Music in a new venue with a new corporate office for TELUS. The ground floor design features a fully contiguous 30’-0” clear-height space astride the newly created Union Square. Coupled with the branded Hosting and Innovation Centres, TELUS has a massive opportunity to engage and communicate with the public, while informing the public zones and overall architecture. The 30-storey, 780,000 s.f. tower directly accesses the Air Canada Centre galleria and Union Station, pushing forward the evolution of a vibrant business district south of Union Station along Toronto’s skyline. The building is a technology showcase, reflecting the TELUS brand that supports a high-quality working environment for their team. One of the biggest drivers was human comfort, and the building houses an advanced heating and cooling system delivered via a raised-floor distribution network, floor-to-ceiling crystal-clear glazing for more natural light penetration into the workplace environment, high-performance windows , and high-efficiency lighting systems. With additional features such as a rainwater cistern for grey-water use and a minimum of 50% of construction waste diversion, TELUS Tower is designed to meet LEED Gold core and shell gold standards and sets new office space benchmarks for environmental responsibility.


i think this is the best building in the competition. hands down masterpiece. if this doesnt win i will give absolutely no legitimacy to the pug awards.

like how the black box above the lobby feels like it's a separate object

like the materials

like the north and south walls extending past the corner feeling like they're separate planes

They had better put some f'ng trees somewhere or I'm switching to Rogers. And I hate Rogers.

Wish it was taller.

As with nearly all the buildings on this ballot, absolutely NO street presence. Just a bunch of glass and stucco. Will not age well.

Do you even know what stucco is?

Another faceless, souless building in an area that has about as much attraction and culture as a herpes sore on your lip.

It's a shame that so many of the angles of this building are blocked either by the ACC, or the Maple Leaf Square tower or the GO Train tracks. It's a great building but a bit wasted on this site.

I love the main floor and it's treatment of the public realm but disappointed with it's boring square boxy look which seems to be the norm for Toronto skyscapers. Another boring roof line.

Fantastic main floor for public traffic!
