Downtown, A Glowing Crystal of an Office Tower

Oxford Properties introduces a 40-storey shard of glass to the Financial District

By Eric Mutrie

At its base, the EY Tower – designed by Kohn Pedersen Fox and WZMH Architects – incorporates the rebuilt facade of 100 Adelaide Street West’s former occupant, the 16-storey Concourse Building. Built in 1928, the art deco property was beloved for its murals by Group of Seven artist J.E.H. MacDonald – now restored and re-installed throughout the new lobby. High above, an LED installation will draw attention to the skyscraper’s more modern element: its angular green roof.
