The five-star Ritz-Carlton is a unique structure that spectacularly stands out on the Toronto city skyline.

There are 6 levels of underground parking with 381 parking spots. The project is designed by one of New York’s premier architectural firms Kohn Pederson Fox, in conjunction with Toronto’s Page + Steele Architects. This hotel/condo complex has made it’s imprint on the downtown core, bringing a finer urban grain to a part of the city that had been over looked for decades. Rising out of a five-storey podium, the south facade begins to slope outward at the 26th storey in a striking architectural feature design to visually compliment the sweeping curves of Roy Thompson Hall across the street. The building boasts 267 hotel rooms, banquet facilities, meeting rooms, fine dining, lounges and Toronto’s largest spa. In addition there are 159 unique and custom condominium residences. The area above grade is approximately 690,000 square feet. Trisects role was as a Construction Manager for the entire project on behalf of the owner Simcoe Wellington Residences Inc.
