UrbanToronto ventured back into the Trump Toronto last week for a look at the project's model suites and the luxurious amenities found in the building. Without further ado, let's dive right in…
Right into the front hall of the more classically decorated of the two model suites, to be precise. The unit layouts, the fittings, the kitchens – and the furnishings in the case of this particular model suite – are by II By IV Design Associates. The first thing you'll notice is that there actually are hallways in Trump suites, something that's missing in the vast majority of condo suites in Toronto these days. The second thing? Probably the top quality materials, exemplified by the marble hallway floor below.
The kitchen is a terrific modern insertion into the more classic space.
You'll notice on most photo credits the name Jack Landau: Jack is someMidTowner on the UrbanToronto Forum, whom we brought along on the tour as a way to say 'thank-you' for the countless images that he has posted on the forum over the past many months. Jack's favourite part of the kitchen: how entirely integrated the refrigerator and freezer are into the cabinetry. We agree: it's pretty darn gorgeously done!
Down the hall, and it's into another hallway, and into a more compact, more contemporaily decorated suite by Kim Jones of Design Solutions Inc.
Even without floor-to-celing wall-to-wall windows, the suites are bright, and have pretty entrancing views of the core and beyond. We'll come back for another story on the views later this week. Time now though to check out some of the amenities in the building, starting with the spa. We'll go through that door, then make a right and head straight for the flush-level infinity-edge swimming pool.
The room is quite a standout. The book-matched Calacatta marble, as you can see above, was all taken from one large chunk, hand-picked by II By IV's Dan Menchions for its dramatic veining which is suggestive of a swimmer doing the breatsroke. You can follow the evolution of the pattern from piece to piece as you move through the room. Between the marble pieces: windows out over the city to the north and east. Like we said before, we'll bring you back for view pictures in another story…
but you will get some peeks out the windows below, from the building's fitness centre. Located on the 32nd floor above the Stock Restaurant, the well-equipped room has views to the west and south.
Change facilities for the fitness centre and the pool are a sophisticated black-tile extravaganza with chrome and ceramic accents. It's all very plush of course!
Famished from working out? We'll end our quick tour for today at Stock Restaurant, located on the 31st floor. As are all of these mid-tower amenities, hotel elevators arrive on these levels from below, and residence elevators arrive from above.
Stock features a two-storey ceiling for most of the room, with a more intimate mezzanine space added into the mix at the west end of the space. The mezzanine can become a special part of the hotel's meeting facilities by curtaining it off from the rest of the room, creating quite a flexible venue where business and pleasure can be combined.
You can find out much more about the Trump in our dataBase entry for the project, located below, where amongst other things you will find links to the Trump's official website. You can, of course, also get in on the talk about the project in one of our associated forum threads.
We've promised you a look at the views in an upcoming story, but look also for a third story about what's left to finish up above, also coming later this week!
