Quite the party was held on August 12th at the opulent new Blue Jays Way sales office to mark the launch of the 41-storey Bisha Hotel and Residences. Bisha is the childhood nickname of clubland king Charles Khabouth, and now Khabouth is joining with Lifetime Developments to launch his vision of a new boutique hotel and luxury condominium residence brand. The Entertainment District tower will feature as its podium the 4-storey brick building that for several years was home to the Diesel Playhouse. During the week to come we'll bring you more details on Bisha, but we can start today with a few pics from the party, focusing on the model of the modernist Wallman Architects-designed building.
