Located in North York, Yonge Park Plaza is a new multi-use development comprised of a hotel, office condo space, and retail space. The seven-storey building will feature a 250-room Hilton Hotel, approximately 250,000 square feet of office condo space that will be sold for purchase (with owners able to customize floorplans), and approximately 20,000 square feet of retail. The building will feature amenities such as a fitness facility, boardrooms, as well as a rooftop restaurant and bar. A highlight of Yonge Park Plaza will be a 10-storey, open-air atrium located in the centre. The building will also offer an underground parkade with electric car charging stations, bicycle storage and direct access to the subway. This project is targeting LEED Gold certification.
The hotel and office central boiler plants will consist of two ultra-high efficiency, condensing, gas-fired, forced draft boilers. Two central water cooled chiller plants, for office and hotel, will produce chilled water for cooling. The hotel and office suites will be provided with fan coil units (four pipe) to handle building heating and cooling loads. Conditioned ventilation/outdoor air will be supplied to the hotel/office suites with heat recovery sections to reclaim/reject waste heat from exhaust air streams. Rainwater from new roof drains will be collected in a concrete cistern pumped throughout the building to serve water closets and urinals.
All lighting within the building will utilize LED technology. Daylight harvesting will be implemented in the atrium and in areas where natural day light is present. Occupancy sensors will be provided in all tenant areas as well as corridors for energy efficiency. The parking garage will be fitted out with 20 electric vehicle parking stations. Communications infrastructure will utilize a fiber optic backbone to each suite.
