Last month, Manga Hotels proposed paired Sweeny &Co Architects-designed hotels for Toronto's Fashion District, and the same developer-architect team has returned with another hotel proposal a few blocks away on Spadina Avenue, just north of Queen Street. Like Manga's Fashion District plan, the 184 Spadina proposal would bring a pair of towers to its site, though here it is more likely that the towers will operate under a single brand.
Plans show 15 and 17-storey towers joined by a three-storey podium, with the taller tower at the west side of the site facing Cameron Street and the 15-storey tower fronting Spadina. 264 guest rooms—averaging 32 m² in size—are planned in the two towers, 108 suites in the Spadina tower, and 156 suites in the Cameron tower.
Guests would enter into a double-height 7-metre-tall lobby and reception area accessed from Spadina Avenue. A secondary entrance beside car elevators and loading bays faces Cameron Street. The ground floor will also feature restaurant space, while a mezzanine level is set to include hotel amenities including lounge and networking spaces. The upper podium floor would house a restaurant space flanked by guest rooms. Most guests suites are housed in the tower floors above. Suites facing into the middle of the block would overlook a green roof atop the podium. The gap between the towers is mirrored by a similar gap between two volumes of the mostly residential building to the north at 186 Spadina.
A mix of amenities, restaurant, back of house service areas, and parking would be housed in three underground levels. The B1 level would contain a fitness centre for hotel guests, housekeeping offices, services, storage, and mechanical space. B2 would house 30 parking spaces serving the towers, with the garage accessed via a Cameron Street vehicle entrance with a pair of car elevators. B3 would contain the hotel's laundry facilities and other back-of-house facilities and storage rooms.
