Hyatt has announced it’s partnering with Mizrahi Developments to open Toronto’s first Andaz hotel. The high-end Andaz brand already consists of 19 hotels around the world, including properties in New York, Ottawa, Abu Dhabi and Singapore. Set to be located at Bloor and Yonge, the hotel will be part of The One, a new mixed-use commercial and residential tower that is projected to be the tallest building in Canada when completed.
Foster + Partners is teaming up with Toronto-based Core Architects to design the new Andaz property, which will occupy 16 floors of The One tower. Hyatt has said the hotel will include 160 rooms along with over 12,000 square feet of event and conference space, restaurants, a spa and other facilities. If it’s anything like Hyatt’s other Andaz properties, the concept will feature locally-inspired elements designed to reflect a sense of place. You’ll have to wait for a little while before booking your staycation, however, with the hotel expected to open in 2022.
