SHANGRI-LA 180 University Avenue  Queen West

Shangri-La Condos, Toronto – 180 University Avenue

Registration date: 2012-08-20

 

A world of benefit and privilege awaits in The Core. The picturesque name says it all. Shangri-La is a place associated with pleasure and otherworldly escape in its literary context. In Toronto, it names a place at 180 University Avenue known for inspirational design and impeccable amenities. It is a coveted downtown luxury residential destination amid the hustle and bustle of the business and entertainment districts.  

With sixty-six storeys, the building is a shooting shaft of glass and steel offering the most amazing views of the environs. It is hard to consider such grandeur as a refuge from city life, but Shangri-La affords residents complete respite from the daily grind within its walls. Not only do they enjoy the amenities of the five-star hotel below, but the building is laden with special features including a private club and event space for the film and media industries. It is a life beyond comparison in the lap of luxury. The extraordinary glass atrium with stainless steel sculpture tells it all as an introduction to the elegance within.

Shangri-La was built in 2012 by Westbank Projects Corp on an historic site called Bishop’s Block that housed 1830’s quaint Georgian row houses. They could not be torn down so Shangri-La incorporates the past; the old and new are flawlessly unified by the expert restoration of James Chen. There is no visual or conceptual incongruity between traditional brick and the sleek and modern glass and steel style. It is a marvel of engineering and one of the tallest buildings in the city.

 

180 University Avenue Amenities

It is all about glamour at 180 University Avenue with 392 luxury suites, each with an over-height ceiling, Italian-inspired kitchen, and the finest fixtures and finishes. Attention goes beyond the mere essentials to include the utmost maximization of space, views, storage and style. The condos occupy the floors above the world-class hotel that rises to seventeen storeys, starting at 819 square feet for a one-bedroom unit. Views are paramount in the upper regions of the structure through enormous picture windows and one of the main reasons for choosing a high-rise. Floors 50 to 65 contain private estate suites with three bedrooms up to a palatial 4,400+ square feet. A private lobby on Adelaide Street has high-speed elevator access to every floor.

The refinements at Shangri-La are seen in the top-tier appliances, automated blinds, and built-in closet organizers. All suites boast Italian Carrera marble bathrooms, Boffi designer kitchens with Miele and Sub Zero appliances and an excess of cabinets and closets. A quick elevator ride takes you to the 24-hour fitness centre and spa (with yoga studio 20-meter lap pool and infrared sauna) or any of the many other communal spaces such as the media room, cinema, party room or business centre.

 

Shangri-La Neighbourhood

The address of 180 University Avenue is centrally located in the Entertainment District and the city’s business and financial centre, otherwise known as The Core. There are countless cultural and recreational amenities all around with all the theatres, art galleries, boutiques, cafes and fine restaurants within steps of Shangri-La. This is the epicentre for the famed Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). 

Life can’t be better than in the heart of downtown. A few of the favorite eateries are right in the building with Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Nota Bene and Volos a short walk away. You also have The Keg Steakhouse, 3 Brewers Adelaide, Momofuku Noodle Bar and Drake One Fifty. Dining in doesn’t seem to be a likely option, but if you care to cook, shopping is easy at Longo’s

There are ample choices for a night out given the proximity of the Four Seasons Centre for the Performing Arts, the Royal Alexandra and Princess of Wales theatres and the Scotiabank Theatre Toronto. Movie lovers have their spot with the nearby TIFF Bell Lightbox. For a great club atmosphere, try The London Tap House or any of the many fun bars.

So much is available that you will have to make time for a stroll to Grange Park or David Pecaut Square. Your pet may prefer one or the other. Students should take note of Neuchatel Junior College. For everyone, there are convenient banks, pharmacies, salons, gyms and health clubs within walking distance. If you feel like driving, hop on the Gardiner Expressway at York Street or catch the bus or St. Andrew and Osgoode subway stations.
