TORONTO | Living Shangri-La | 214m | 65 fl | Com

Living Shangri-La
DOWNTOWN TORONTO
















Living Shangri-La, a 65-storey tower at University Avenue and Adelaide Street will combine a five-star hotel with a luxury condominium. Located across from the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, it will contain 220 guest rooms and, above them, 352 residences. Owners of those suites will have access to the hotel's spa and pool, as well as 24-hour conveniences such as housekeeping and room service.

Living Shangri-La Toronto is the second Canadian property to be developed by Hong Kong-based Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts along with Vancouver-based Westbank and Peterson Group. The companies' Living Shangri-La Vancouver will be completed next year. Shangri-La Hotels is well known in Asia for its high-end hotels and resorts, and now is expanding into North America.

The Toronto tower, situated between the financial and entertainment districts, will include 279 one- and two-bedroom suites from the 18th to 48th floor. Prices range from $550,000 to $1.7-million. (***Note: 80% of units were sold before official launch of this project***)

Starting on the 49th floor, there will be 71 executive suites measuring between 1,900 and 3,700 square feet. Priced from $2.1-million to more than $5-million, these units will feature separate elevators, lobbies, and concierge and valet services. There are a few two-level plans with double-height ceilings in the principal room.

The two penthouse units will have more than 6,000 square feet of space and cost about $10-million each.


Location: 180 University Avenue, Toronto
Developer: Westbank Projects Corp. & Peterson Investment Group Inc.
Architect: James KM Cheng Architects
Designation: Condominium, Hotel
Status: Under construction (Excavation)
Expected Occupancy: 2010 (Spring of 2011 for Hotel)

This building is really going to 'bookend' University Avenue. Shangri-La at one end, Queen's Park at the other.

Toronto's gettin' everything that's good! A new Four Seasons, Trump Tower, Ritz-Carlton, Shangri-La, etc.

I'm wondering when Mandarin Oriental and JW Marriott will get on board.

It's going to be great to have such a massive tower on University. Very neat design too.

Looks like they are saving artifacts from the old Bishop's Block townhouse remnants before digging "the hole".

Toronto style? (Vancouver architect/developer)

Anyway in a way it is Toronto style because TO always builds bolder and taller than anywhere else in Canada. I really like the angles on this Shangri-la.

It is a beaut and it has a primo corner to build on. Dying to see this one completed. Bet they now wish they had gone taller, what with all the newest condos announcing record heights.

Great design, looks like it'll jut out in the canyon between the tower and the rest of the skyline. Any renderings from the waterfront?
