So much is right there in the building that you could spend days without needing to go outside. And if you don't fancy taking care of it yourself, a wealth of first-rate service providers are at your door. Convenience is a notable feature at the Shangri-La Condos.
As the Name Suggests
As it's name suggests, Shangri-La is a tranquil refuge from the stresses and strains of city living. An earthy paradise? Well, that may be an exaggeration, but this striking 66-storey glass tower shared with the 5-star Shangri-La Hotel at the crossroads of the city's business and entertainment districts, arguably offers the pinnacle of Toronto condo living.
Full Service Luxury Living
Built in 2012, the Shangri-La's soaring tower, glass atrium and signature stainless-steel sculpture is a focal point on University Avenue. A blend of old and new, the sleek, modern construction seamlessly incorporates Bishop's Block, a Georgian rowhouse dating back to the 1830s. The buildings have been painstakingly restored by Westbank Projects as part of the development and now house Soho House Toronto, a private club, restaurant and event space for the film, media and creative industries. Inside, attention has been paid to every glamorous detail of the 392 condominium suites including over-height ceilings, exclusive Italian kitchens, top-of-the-line appliances, closet organizers and automated blinds as standard.
The hotel rooms of the Shangri-La Hotel occupy the first 17 floors. Residents access their suites via a high-speed elevator from a private lobby, yet access to all the hotel's indulgent amenities is a part of ownership in the building. This is full service luxury living at it's finest. Realtors and residents alike rate Shangri-La as not just their favourite Queen West condo but among the finest luxury condos in the entire city.
