Shangri-La Toronto is a hotel and condominium tower in downtown Toronto, Canada. It was designed by Vancouver based architect James Cheng and was built by Westbank Projects Corp. This is the same team that was responsible for building the 201m Living Shangri-La, the tallest building in Vancouver as well as a number of other structures in that city. Shangri-La Toronto is 214 meters tall, and is one of the ten tallest buildings in Toronto. The hotel component is run by Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts and is planned to have 202 guest rooms. The condominium portion occupies the upper floors of the building and consist of 353 units. Excavation of the site started in 2008, and work on the parking garage began in early 2009.
