About The St. Regis Toronto

The glass tower emerges from a stone-clad “reflection” of the adjacent historic limestone buildings to the west and to the south and is accented by a corner light-sculpture element that extends from the sidewalk to the top of the articulated spire.

The tower’s efficiency extends through MEP design to structural design and space planning. It makes use of the Enwave District Heating and Cooling System, which draws cold water from Lake Ontario for use in cooling buildings. Hotel and condominium floors are column-free due to post-tensioned concrete floor spans. Separate car and service access, a porte-cochere, a hotel and condominium lobby, and a retail space are all contained on a 45-by-34-meter site. Car parking is located above-grade, between the condominium and below the hotel lobby, and uses “stackers”: mechanical devices that allow one car to be elevated above another to make maximum use of the volume.
