Canada’s first Nobu hotel and restaurant is opening in Toronto, and developers have recently shared some updates on the property, including renderings of its exterior and photos of the current construction.
Madison Group, a real estate development company with properties in Toronto and New York City, officially released renderings of the historic façade and entrance, which is on Mercer Street.
“This transformative development will become an anchor in the heart of Toronto’s popular Entertainment District as the first, fully integrated residence,” states Madison Group.
According to the Group, recent construction updates include: concrete forming continues on level 13 on the east tower and level 16 on the west tower, glass panels are currently being installed on level 8 for both east and west towers, as well as the “heritage façade retention has been removed and the restoration work and interior finishers are scheduled to start Spring 2022.”
Nobu says its residences in Toronto will be “dedicated to distinguished luxury, incorporating historical facades from the Pilkington Glass Factory, maintaining the integrity of iconic elements while fusing striking architectural details in a contemporary aesthetic.”
When developed, the Nobu Toronto residences will feature 650 condominium suites in two 45-storey towers, and a podium complete with state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor amenities as well as 6,000 sq. ft. of commercial retail space.
“Construction for the fully-integrated Nobu Residences is well underway with the first scheduled occupancy to be in 2022,” said Josh Zagdanski, Vice-President High-Rise, Madison Group, in a release. “We couldn’t be more excited to be closing in on this transformative project that will anchor a re-envisioned Mercer Street.”
The Toronto hotel will be one of many existing ones around the world, in cities like Miami Beach, Barcelona, Ibiza Bay, Las Vegas, Manila, Los Cabos, Warsaw, Palo Alto, and more. It’s one of the most renowned hospitality brands in the world, founded by Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and Robert De Niro in 1994.
