I hope to see lighting up the 'zipper' portion. That would look fantastic.

The HDR version by the way is made from 5 source images with varying exposure times of 8, 15, 30, 60 and 120 seconds at an aperture setting of f/22.0.

Luxury Living: Sweet suites await you -- but not for long
1 October 2010
Canwest News Service

Toronto's prospective condo buyers are perched in the proverbial lap of luxury. Whether they're downsizing from a large home and seeking an equally extravagant dwelling or moving up to a bigger and better space, luxurious abodes are available in high-end developments throughout the city. "The condo market is fantastic. We've seen near-record highs in the market overall during the past year and there's great opportunity in the luxury market," says Ben Myers, executive vice-president of Urbanation, which tracks Toronto's high-rise condo market. Barry Lyon, president of N. Barry Lyon Consultants, a Toronto real estate consulting firm, also gives a nod to luxury developments. "Choice is abundant, and quality and design standards are excellent," Mr. Lyon says. "Luxury condos are all about ease of lifestyle and the ultimate in convenience." Impressive developments are under construction around the city and, while many units have sold, many lavish suites and penthouses are still available.

THE RITZ-CARLTON

By Graywood Developments

Wellington and John streets
theresidencestoronto.com

The Residences at The Ritz-Carlton are located in the heart of the city and scheduled for first occupancy next month. More than 75% of the units are sold, including the penthouse, but incredible suites are still available.

The Valencia is a $9.617-million, 6,000-square-foot dream home with a spacious terrace, 12-ft. ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass on three sides and private elevator entrance. "The Valencia is the type of space a client moving from a large luxury home would look to acquire," says Graywood's chief operating officer Stephen Price.

Also available is the Monte Carlo, a one-bedroom 1,500-sq.-ft. unit starting at $2.985-million and featured in the presentation centre at Front and Simcoe streets. "A buyer looking at the Monte Carlo could move in as earlier as fall 2010," Mr. Price says. The Residences are connected to Toronto's underground PATH network and located steps from Roy Thompson Hall, theatres, restaurants and the waterfront.

Previously posted on urbantoronto.ca by interchange42 :

Last week, Urban Toronto had occasion to get an update on construction progress inside the Ritz-Carlton courtesy of Garnet Watchorn, president of Graywood Developments Ltd., and facilitated by David Eisenstadt of The Communications Group. Slowly but surely, the true opulence of the building is being uncovered, revealing what promises to be among the most luxurious hotel-residences in the Ritz-Carlton family.

A view across the granite-surfaced porte-cochère toward the hotel lobby entrance.




Spanish anigre wood panelling in the hotel lobby.




Other finishes in the hotel lobby include cherry wood, anodized steel, and Alicante marble.






The future TOCA restaurant with double-vaulted ceilings on the second floor of the hotel lobby.




Looking toward the private dining room (left) and wine-tasting room (right) inside the restaurant.




The restaurant also contains a cheese-aging room.




The restaurant kitchen, which includes a chef's table for invited guests.




The second level of the podium just outside the grand ballroom.








A view inside the immense grand ballroom, here divided into three sections by sliding partitions.




The specially-commissioned carpet in the grand ballroom was created, delivered, and installed in one piece. It depicts the riverbed of the Don.




The mechanical room on the third level of the podium, one of two in the building, with the other located below grade and powered by Deep Lake Water Cooling.




Laundry facilities on the third floor of the podium.




The fourth level of the podium just outside the junior ballroom.




The junior ballroom.




Boardroom on the fourth level of the podium.




Inside the 23,000 sq ft spa encompassing the entire fifth level of the podium. The spa features a retail boutique, beauty salon, fitness centre, swimming area, co-ed relaxation room, men's and women's relaxation lounges, sixteen treatment rooms, grooming stations, vitality pools, saunas, and steam rooms.






The swimming area inside the spa.






The outdoor lounge terrace for residents with rough-granite decking and under-floor heating on the 21st floor, which also houses the residents-only Sky Lobby, lounge, bar, fitness studio, screening room, games room, meeting room, and private guest suite.








A peek inside the 10,800 sq ft private penthouse on the 52nd floor, which can be accessed by two reserved residential elevators and one service elevator.




The 2,000 sq ft penthouse terrace under scaffolding due a construction accident a few weeks ago.




And that marks the end of our tour of The Ritz-Carlton, which is sure to set a new standard for luxurious living in this country. Urban Toronto will continue to visit and report on the building as construction advances toward its official opening early next year.
