The former site of Crocodile Rock to be replaced with 68-storey skyscraper
Another condo tower may join Toronto's growing skyline — this time replacing a beloved bar in the Entertainment District.
Affectionately known as Croc Rock, it was known to have line-ups in the summer but remained closed throughout the pandemic as it couldn't seamlessly transition to offering takeout or delivery.
The proposal includes properties from 224 to 240 Adelaide, so in addition to Crocodile Rock, the buildings housing Yuzu No Hana, the Copacabana Restaurant and Burrito Boyz would be removed. The Burrito Boyz at 224 Adelaide Street West has heritage value as an 1880 cottage with Victorian Gothic architectural attributes.
The plans for a 68-storey skyscraper submitted to the City of Toronto detail a mixed-use building with a six-storey base that includes ground floor retail space along with a five-storey upper residential podium and a 57-storey residential tower above.
The overall building height would be 219 metres, including the mechanical penthouse with rooftop amenity floors and sculptural articulation at the top of the building.
The proposal is for 637 residential units, with a mix of unit types and sizes, 10 per cent being three bedroom units and 15 per cent two-bedroom units. There would be 57 parking spaces and 651 bicycle parking spaces.
The development is in the proposal phase, so there is still time for changes to the plan.
