The 1984-built Interncontinental Toronto Centre Hotel was formerly the Crowne Plaza Hotel Toronto and L’Hotel CN before that.
Toronto‘s Sutton Place Hotel was built in 1967 by WZMH Architects. After almost 50 years in service the building is being redeveloped as a condominium tower.
ERA Architects conducted the heritage impact statement. In short the building is not heritage-listed, not in a Heritage Conservation District and its height is not out of character with coming development. Amexon Development and CORE Architects Inc are behind the proposal.
The hotel was originally a mid-century modernist office building with some redeeming elements as shown in the image below from the 1960’s. Thanks to Chuckman’s Photos on WordPress (https://chuckmantorontonostalgia.wordpress.com/).
Construction is almost complete in this first hotel-only tower (45 storey) constructed in Toronto in the last 20 years. Page+Steele / IBI Group Architects.
