About the Project

The Ritz-Carlton Toronto makes use of a prime site in proximity to Toronto’s central business district and theatre district. Adjacent to Simcoe Park on the south and across the street from Roy Thompson Hall to the north, the tower offers prominent views of downtown Toronto and Lake Ontario. The top 30 floors of the tower comprise 360,000 square feet of condominiums which sit atop 14 hotel guestroom floors with 267 suites. The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto will become an integral part of Toronto’s bustling below-grade pedestrian network. The project includes five levels of underground parking, which will interconnect with the new RBC Centre to the east. The angled form of the tower gestures toward the primary views of Lake Ontario. At the same time, the floor plates steadily increase as the tower rises, adding area at the desirable upper levels. The tower’s form culminates in a soaring chiseled profile, which distinguishes this building on the city’s skyline. The podium relates to the base of the WSIB tower, as well as that of the CBC building, and helps to mediate between the pedestrian scale and the larger urban scale of the tower forms.
