Advance Details on Trump Toronto

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Toronto, Canada – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Finishing touches are underway as the January 31, 2012 opening of Trump International Hotel & Tower Toronto nears. Soon guests and residents will have first-hand access to Toronto’s most exclusive enclave. Until then, compelling details can be revealed as a hint at what’s to come. Did you know…

• Lifting the spire of the building (now Canada’s tallest residential structure) was the single largest lift in North America – if not the world? Weighing in at over 90 tons, it took over 12 hours to lift the spire in place on the roof of the hotel.

• The wall mosaic in the porte-cochere consists of 500,000 handmade, hand-cut tiles, which took a crew of 20 artists three months to make? Up close, the work entitled “A Small Part of Something Larger” by Canadian artist Stephen Andrews will disclose a textural pattern of porcelain, glass, stone and gold. From afar, the mosaic reveals an image of a stadium filled with cheering people.

• There are over 18,000 pieces of crystal in the hotel from the Czech Republic? One of the more magnificent displays is the hotel lobby’s three-dimensional cherry blossom branch, which is estimated to weigh 3,000 lbs. It is lit with LEDs against a black glass background, and a specialist from the Czech Republic was brought in to note the precise points of connection for the lights, ensuring a perfect spectrum of glow.

• Encompassing 4,000 square feet on the 30th floor, Trump Toronto’s Presidential Suite will be the largest and highest suite in the city? The suite’s soundproof media room will include a projector screen and plasma display, ideal for film screenings.

• STOCK™ restaurant will have one of Canada’s most impressive lists of organic, natural and bio-dynamic wines? Its wine wall (featuring an ebony grid pattern – evidenced in the architecture of the high-rises lining Toronto’s Adelaide Street) will feature nearly 1,000 bottles

• The kitchen will feature a dedicated, temperature-controlled “Chocolate Lab”? Pastry chef David Chow will tempt guests with extraordinary artisan chocolate creations designed from Valrhona’s esteemed family of Grand Cru Couvertures. Signature specialties include sea salt and caramel chocolate toffee, 66% dark chocolate + spring jasmine tea, and homemade artisanal scones with pure Valhrona chocolate hazelnut confiture.
