Luxurious Residences Above the Shangri-La Hotel, Toronto Opening 2012



Shangri-La Toronto is a luxury hotel and condominium tower under construction in downtown Toronto, Canada. It was designed by Vancouver based architect James Cheng is being built by Westbank Projects Corp and Peterson Group. This is the same team that was responsible for building the 201m Living Shangri-La, the tallest building in Vancouver as well as a number of other iconic structures in that city. Shangri-La Toronto will be 214 meters tall, and will be one of the ten tallest buildings in Toronto upon completion. The hotel component will be run by Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts and is planned to have 200 exquisite guest rooms. The condominium portion will occupy the upper floors of the building and consist of 353 units. Excavation of the site started in 2008, and work on the parking garage began in early 2009.

The Toronto Shangri-La is located on University Avenue and Adelaide Street, in an area just west of the Financial District that has seen rapid growth in recent years. The site was previously home to a number of smaller structures, most notable the historic Bishop's Block. The Bishop's Block was built in the 1830s by John Bishop who built a series of Georgian row houses on the site and developed it as a high end residential district. One of the first residents was author Anna Brownell Jameson.

Most of the buildings were eventually torn down and replaced with a large parking lot. The one exception a structure that served as one of the city's first hotels and then as a pub for many decades. It too was abandoned for several decades, but as a heritage structure was not torn down. This building was disassembled for the construction of Shangri-La, but the developers have pledged to rebuild and restore the Bishop's Block as part of the project. Prior to excavation the site was the subject to several months of archeological exploration, and many artifacts from the city's early history were found.
