These looks quite interesting. A good departure from the Toronto box norm.

Easton's Group of Companies (http://www.eastonsgroup.com) pays over $70 million for 355 King Street West, will they bring a W Hotel to Toronto?
According to an update by Urbanation, Remington will be a partner in this development.

These guys look a little bit low end to be dealing with W Hotels. - Also slight saturation of the Hotel Market at the high end in Toronto by the time Shangrila comes online.

I'm thinking another Hilton or Marriott possibly. And of course there is the lot across the street (Shoppers Drug Mart) which looks destined to become a major condo/office block as well.

The new design is pathetic. The facadectomy of the Westinghouse is tragic enough, but this looks awfully bland and generic. One of the worst designs that I've seen in the pipeline in a while. This primitive design is something I would have expected 10 years ago in this construction boom.
