Comprised of twin 49-story towers on Mercer Street with a cubist aesthetic, the project will be on the site of a Pilkington Glass Factory, and its retail frontage will incorporate elements of that historic brick building’s façade, Urban Toronto reports. The hotel will house 102 guest rooms, according to the local news source.
Those accommodations are planned for the top of the project’s west tower. The hospitality component will also include a 15,000-sq.-ft., two-level Nobu restaurant featuring a bar lounge, outdoor seating and private dining rooms.
Meanwhile, the 700 condo suites will be housed in both towers. The project will also involve a multi-level podium with ground-floor retail, private event space, a fitness center and a “Zen Garden” outdoor terrace.
