Urban Toronto visits the penthouse Residences at The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto in the second part of our tour. (See links for parts one, three and four of the tour at the bootom os the article.)
Today, a visit to the 52nd floor of the Ritz-Carlton, and its 10,820 square foot penthouse: Yes, that's a long view: you are looking through several rooms along the southern side of the unit, and yes, finished ceilings on this floor will be 12 feet high!
And yes, those are the panels, back side, that are being lifted into place to clad the back of the glass fin from our previous report.
Stroll along the terrace, and well, how can you resist the view?!
Back under the roof, just about where that lift is now will be a fireplace when the penthouse is finished.
Moving further west, we find ourselves where the elevator will eventually serve this unit.
Further west of that, we find ourselves where elevators currently serve this unit. Quite the ride, that: we did not plummet to our deaths once.
Up close to the north curtainwall now, and we have a look at the brackets and bolts that hold the wall to the floor slabs. There is a couple centimetre gap between the wall and the slabs.
Coming up next: the SkyLobby floors.
