Back in October 2011, Shangri-la Toronto one of the newest luxury property set to open in Toronto and the second Shangri-la Hotels and Resorts (Shangrila Vancouver opened in January 2009) from the Asian-based luxury hotel group in North America have set an ambitious pinpoint precision to open this August 7 at exactly 1:30 pm. As I’ve check on their online website – Shangri-la Toronto is scheduled to open later this month and the anticipated August opening of David Chang‘s Momofuku might not happen. Such a tease but we can only patiently wait!
Located at University Avenue,the opening of Shangri-La Hotel Toronto, a 66 storey tower with the first floor occupying 202 luxury guest rooms with luxury offerings never seen before in Toronto, including the opening of Momofuku by acclaimed New York chef David Chang; a dramatic multi-storey sculpture that begins outside and winds its way into the hotel lobby by internationally renowned artist Zhang Huan, Miraj Hammam Spa by Caudalie Paris and a state-of-the-art theatre.
