160 Front Street West

A new 47 storey office tower on the northeast corner of Front Street and Simcoe Street in downtown Toronto, 160 Front Street West will maintain that façade of the heritage building.

There are two primary tenants of the 1.2 million square-foot development: TD Bank & the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, the owner of Cadillac Fairview, which will relocate its current North York head office to the new Toronto tower.

Along with offices, the CF Front Street development will include 339 underground parking stalls and 12,290 square feet of retail space. Incorporating the latest in smart building technology, this building also has environmental sustainability at the heart of its design to achieve LEED®️ Platinum and WELL Building Standard®️ certifications.

Our Role

Walters Group was selected by PCL as the Design-Assist and build partner on this project. Walters supplied and erected approximately 12,000 Tons of structural steel and 1.07 million square feet of metal deck for the main tower and podium.

Walters also supplied the galvanized steel for the 6-ton 30ft x 30ft back truss on the east sign. This was fabricated in 3 assemblies in the Hamilton plant and then trial fit before and after galvanizing. On-site, it was preassembled and erected in a single lift. Walters also made the outrigger connections for all the signs from the main building in the shop.

Walters Field Services installed the support frames, ladders, and catwalks for all the signs on the building’s North, South, West and East faces. They also assisted the sign supplier, Atec Signs Inc., with installing the screens. The scope of the tower is now complete, and the site team has demobilized.

Overcoming Challenges

Situated in the heart of downtown directly across from Union Station, this project will require finding creative solutions to a challenging logistical environment.
