Urban Toronto’s comprehensive tour of the KPMB-designed Festival Tower, courtesy of Daniels Corp, now takes you into its very extensive amenities area, located on two whole levels of the podium overlooking tiff.Bell Lightbox and the surrounding city. (Be sure to watch for our exclusive coverage of TIFF’s new headquarters in separate reports in the weeks ahead.)

Looking out over the future Meditation Garden, the focal point of which will be a sculpture by New Brunswick artist Peter Powning.

A sweeping vista of the stunning pool and hot tub area, which will be divided by a dramatic curtain of water, marked by the long and narrow recess in the ceiling, visible at the top of the image. Overlooking all of this is the raised fitness room, as seen at the far end of the shot.

A panoramic shot of the future corporate event space to be known as ‘Malaparte.’ This facility, which will be outfitted with a full commercial kitchen, is owned and operated by Daniels Corp and the Reitman family in partnership with Oliver & Bonacini. It will be made available to Festival Tower residents, TIFF, and outside clients.
