We'll start on the top floor of the podium, the 5th, and work our way down to the 3rd. The Ritz Cartlon's spa will feature everything you would expect of a five-star establishment, with various pools, massage rooms, saunas, etc. So far though, the floor features more potential than actual finished spaces.
The pool area is currently furthest along on this floor.
While the pool area is at the back, or south end of the podium, the Tearoom is situated facing north.
Its skylight looks up to the RBC and Ritz Carlton towers, while its view to the north overlooks Metro Square.
Another two floors down, and we come to the main event area: the Ballroom.
To the north of the Ballroom is a large space lying just outside the centre of the action, which can be configured in a number of ways to support the activities in the ballroom. It is this area that one can see from Wellington Street.
It also has a view of Metro Square of course.
Tomorrow; back to ground level.
