    They really got a jump on Four Seasons and Shangai-Lai. The former needs to happen as a matter of pride for Izzy Sharpe; Shangrai-Lai may benefit from the wealthy Asian market in Toronto.
  4. A friend of mine who works for CBC forwarded me an e-mail sent to their staff about the Ritz complex, stating that construction is to start this week.

    Amazing! What a great time to be living in Toronto. 3 major towers starting at the same time in the core. The skyline will continue to rapidly change.

    So they're building both, the office and the hotel at the same time? If that's the case then this project is proceeding with phenomenal speed.

    Two major towers at the same time- it's the 80's all over again.

    Wow, starting construction so quickly. That's great!

    What's happening with the Shangri-La and W hotels?
  9. Great to hear about the Ritz Carlton. I am most excited about this project right now.

    samsonyuen: If I am not mistaken, I believe their goal is to begin sales in the fall and have construction start next summer.
  10. Remind me: did they ever sell that 10,000 square foot penthouse?

    I think they did. To someone from Dubai.
  12. Ooh, Dubai.

    I'm excited just to be living in the same city as that penthouse.

    (Gawkers can check out the ridiculous floorplan at the website Ed linked to above...)
  13. The exterior cladding will be limestone and blue tinted-glass, as noted on the website under Building>Legendary Luxury.

    "To someone from Dubai."

    Dubai is one big 10,000 sq. ft. penthouse.

    I'm curious, has anybody seen an image of the facade opposite the cantilevered lobby? Is this the side that faces the lake and is this stone? Can't quite make it out in the images above.
