One Bloor, previously One Bloor East and Number One Bloor, is a mixed-use skyscraper under construction at the intersection of Bloor Street and Yonge Street in downtown Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The project was initially launched by developer Bazis International Inc. in 2007, before being cancelled and re-developed under developer Great Gulf Homes. The two-storey buildings located on the site were demolished in December 2008. The 75-storey tower topped out in late 2015.
There have been several attempts to build a residential building at No. 1 Bloor Street East. In 2005, a 60-storey tower was proposed by Young and Wright. The site was sold to Bazis International and then to Great Gulf Homes. The site was formerly a two storey retail building with a Harvey's and City Optical on the ground floor, which was demolished once the One Bloor project proceeded.
