About Sun Life Tower and Harbour Plaza Residences:

A mixed-use development by Menkes Developments, it spans an entire city block, and is comprised of a 840,000 s.f. class 'AAA' office tower, a retail podium and two 70-storey residential condominium towers (designed by architectsAlliance). Each of the three components is independent yet linked at grade. Connected to the indoor PATH system (and by extension to Union Station), each building has access to an outdoor terrace amenity on the roof of the podium and share amenities such as retail, food court, and health clubs.

The office building, Sun Life Tower, is slated for completion Summer 2016.
