Thompson Hotels Break Ground in Toronto
The other day we told you that Thompson Hotels has plenty of other hotel projects lined up now that Six Columbus has finally opened its doors.
And they are moving fast. The Toronto Star reports that ground-breaking is expected today at 550 Wellington St. W. in Toronto's King Street West area, which is described as similar to NYC's Soho neigborhood.
The modernist condominium and hotel complex at 550 Wellington St. W. is expected to be completed by the summer of 2009. It will feature design by Estudio Mariscal, a Barcelona company that created a cutting-edge look for the hotel across from Frank Gehry's Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain.
The The Thompson Toronto will also feature condos and four restaurants/bars and the ultra-hip, ultra-now rooftop pool (above in rendering.) Yikes. But if you're visiting Toronto before 2009, here are some other boutique hotels worthy of checking out.
