For the last two days, the Festival Tower has opened its doors to UrbanToronto allowing an exclusive look at the top-notch amenities the building offers. These amenities are themed appropriately to reflect a red carpet experience, echoing the style of the TIFF Bell Lightbox upon which the Festival Tower stands. If you are interested in viewing the amenities already covered, have a look at parts one and two. The tour will conclude today with a special look at the sports and fitness related features of the tower.

For yoga enthusiasts, this room should be particularly appealing. Complete with exercise bikes, pilates equipment and a decent amount of space, this room functions not only as a training room, but as a dance studio. The space also looks upon the outdoor Meditation Garden should one want to add a natural element to the workout.

Those who are looking for more of a selection in exercise equipment should visit the 11th floor where the Fitness Centre is located. The area offers a wider array of equipment to choose from, including a series of television screens throughout.  The space overlooks our final indoor amenity, an already popular destination for residents.

The Pool House features just that, a refreshing indoor pool as well as a smaller whirlpool. Separating the two is a cascading waterfall which acts as the main element of the space. Surrounded by glass, the view from the Pool House over the city is quite breathtaking and simultaneously relaxing. Separate saunas and change rooms are also well-used features of the space. With immediate connection to an outdoor lounging area, our final amenity, the room should appeal to just about everyone.

The Rooftop Terrace sits atop the Bell Lightbox and includes cabanas, lounging chairs and natural landscaping. Both a relaxation and entertainment space, the terrace looks over King Street and the surrounding city.

Certainly a very unique condominium in its association with the Toronto International Film Festival, the tower will attract dozens of celebrities, press, and attention in just a few short weeks. The amenities, from an authentic private cinema to a tranquil pool area, make it very difficult for residents to leave the comfort of home. With the exceptional downtown location and convenient access to the TTC, the Festival Tower should prove to be a very popular choice for prospective buyers.
