Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Project Cost
$340,000,000.00

Overview
In its first foray into the Toronto market, Westbank will arrive in the grandest of style with a 750' tower featuring a 5-Star Shangri-la Hotel and luxury residential condos. The 800,000 sf development will be located on one of Toronto's most celebrated streets - University Avenue.

Definitely a top-tier hotel that will do well in Toronto. But, why are so many four and five star hotels being built in North America today mixed use with a hotel and condos?

More profitable/less risky from a developers stand-point.

Plus us skyscraper fanatics are happy as it usually results in a taller building.

WOW. This is incredible. It looks similar to the one in Vancouver. I do like the height and the crown.
