This Ledcor Renew project includes the renovation and energy optimization of an existing 21-story office building.
Operating costs were reduced through energy conservation and revenues increased by converting a mechanical plenum floor to leasable office space. The mechanical and electrical system upgrades and window retrofit have improved energy performance and increased tenant comfort. Aesthetic upgrades to the ground floor, including a new canopy, upgraded entrance and dramatic lighting add architectural interest to the building.
This building achieved LEED EB:O&M Gold. It was also recognized with a CivicAction Race to Reduce 2014 Energy Reduction award. In 2015, 77 Bloor Street West won the same award again in the category of Greatest Energy Reduction in the Race to Reduce. Additionally, it won a second award in the category of Lowest Energy Use. Together, these awards earned it the recognition for being one of the projects that helped the city of Toronto achieve a 12.1 per cent drop in collective energy use between 2011 and 2014.
