Construction update on Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronot: Trump Tower Revealing Luxury Inside and Out
Ongoing construction continues with structural developments on residential floors and implementation of finishing touches on hotel floors
TORONTO Changing leaves are not distracting construction crews working on Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto as they focus their efforts on continuing to build up through the residential portion of the tower and putting the finishing touches on the interior of the lower hotel floors. Trump Toronto will be the Trump Hotel Collection’s first property in Canada and is scheduled to open early 2011.
Construction is continuing with work being done around the clock to develop the 60-storey, 900-foot tower that will hold the title of Canada’s tallest residential building. The concrete team has completed the hotel and spa floors, and the crew has progressed to the 40th floor with a new level being poured every five days. The concrete development is also finished on the major transfer floors, creating the first structural set back of the tower an architectural feature that visually illustrates the transition from hotel to residential condominium floors.
“As the Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto in Toronto takes ever more shape, we are now seeing the embodiment of ultimate luxury on both the exterior and the interior with finishes being applied to the hotel floors,” says Alex Shnaider, Chairman of Talon International Development Inc., the property’s developer. “As the only Trump-branded property in Canada, Trump Toronto is truly living up to the brand’s reputation of being built with an enduring level of quality that is second-to-none.”
Construction work is now focused on both the structural requirements and the aesthetics of the tower. The interiors are close to completion on floors 11 to 14 and crews are currently tiling floors 20 and 21. In addition, the curtain wall continues to be installed and is now on the 30th floor.
“I had the recent honour of celebrating the transition to the vertical half-way point of the tower with the hard working construction crew members,” says Val Levitan, President and CEO of Talon. “We are thrilled with the progress of the tower and are proud of the team we have put together who contribute daily to building this vital addition to Toronto’s downtown core.”
During the next few months crews will continue to pour floors and to finish the hotel portion of the tower. In late November, the lower hoists that currently operate from ground level to level 12 will be relocated to allow these floors to be completed.
