11 Feb Construction continues above grade at Bisha Hotel and Residences in Toronto’s Entertainment District
Back in the summer of 2014, the crane was already up, but the site — located on Blue Jays Way at King Street — was still mostly a large hole in the ground. Today, construction on the project has passed grade level and the historical brick facade has been moved back into its final place as the showpiece entrance to the hotel and condominium.
Built in the 1800s, the brick facade was once part of a private residence before it was converted into a school in 1878. Through the decades, the building was used for a range of purposes including warehouse space, an agency for child migrants, and more recently, the the home of the Second City Toronto comedy club and The Diesel Playhouse.
In addition to its prime location, the 41-storey Bisha Hotel and Residences features architecture by Rudy Wallman of Wallman Architects, professional landscaping by gh3 and interiors by internationally-renowned Munge Leung.
The development will also offer residents a long list of amenities expected from a luxury hotel and condominium including a rooftop restaurant, bar, infinity pool, 24 hour concierge, pet walking/feeding services, cleaning/housekeeping and grocery delivery services.
