Urban Toronto’s tour continues inside Festival Tower and into the condo suites, which are in various states of completion; more so on the lower levels, less so on the upper levels. The top two floors are reserved for the largest penthouses, four per floor, with 11 ft ceilings on the uppermost level and 10 ft ceilings on the level below. These are followed by four floors of Signature Suites, with six per floor, then a number of floors with eight suites per floor. The 37th floor marks the approximate top of the more typical floors containing eleven suites per floor. 

Balconies will be subdivided between condo units as construction continues.

Some UT members have noted that a couple of storeys in Festival Tower are slightly higher than others, as evidenced by the larger gaps between balcony levels. On these floors, some height was added to provide room for conduits without affecting the standard ceiling height of 9 ft inside the condo suites.

A typical kitchen. Cabinetry was done by Irpinia Kitchens and is available in various finishes. All units contain 100% Miele appliances.

A typical bathroom with back-painted glass tile. Some quality control issues arose when the tiles were in transit from China but these have been meticulously resolved by Daniels.

KPMB’s strong design concept for Festival Tower is apparent in small flourishes like this little reveal which adds additional view exposures.
