Since construction commenced on a tight site at 51 Camden Street in late 2016, work has been gradually progressing for a new Shim-Sutcliffe-designed boutique hotel in Toronto's Fashion District. The project from the team of Alterra Group of Companies, Zinc Developments, and Prowinko is moving along as details remain under wraps as to which hotelier will operate the new 13-storey property.
We last checked in on construction just over one month ago, when forming of the ground floor was wrapping up and work had moved on to forming for the second and third floors above. In the weeks since, the remaining sections of levels 2 and 3 have been formed, while forming has moved on to forming for levels 4 and 5. The faster pace of forming will continue in the coming months, with crews now working on floorplates with repeating layouts that can be built more rapidly.
Our last update in March highlighted the partial reveal for a row of double-height sculptural arches 'carved' through the west side of the hotel's ground floor and B1 level. The recent removal of concrete formwork now offers a much clearer glimpse at the arcaded space, including the roughly-textured board-formed concrete archways with stainless steel inserts.
A view from within the hotel's ground floor offers a look down of the restaurant space in its current state. This impressive space is set to host a bar and restaurant.
