I mean, your posts are borderline unnecessary and over the top most of time, but sure.
I'm not sure Mr. End's comments are designed to please you or agree with you. (Nor me for that fact.) But if you are posting this in thinking he would change his tune, that's unlikely to happen. Time to move on...

Northland acquires T.O.’s King Blue Hotel from Greenland


Oct 1, 2021

Northland Properties has acquired the soon-to-be-completed King Blue Hotel in Toronto from Greenland Canada, which is developing the 118-suite boutique facility as part of its twin-tower King Blue Condominiums.


Located at the corner of King St. West and Blue Jays Way in the downtown core, the King Blue development comprises 48- and 44-storey towers connected by a six-storey podium constructed from the remains of the historic Westinghouse manufacturing plant which was built in 1927.

Financial details of the transaction were not released.

“Northland’s acquisition of the King Blue Hotel is a great addition to our family-owned portfolio of hotels, restaurants, resorts and sports assets,” said Tom Gaglardi, CEO of the family-owned Northland Properties Corp., in the announcement.

“With an existing collection of 60 hotels across five countries, this impressively constructed hotel serves as a landmark expansion at an important address in Toronto’s Entertainment District.”

Northland is an international hotel/resort and entertainment owner which is active in five countries, employs about 13,000 and owns 63 properties as well as operating 175 restaurants and venues.

The company is also the owner of the Dallas Stars NHL franchise.

Interesting, Northland is pretty big in BC and have some household name restaurants there

Some interior photos of the new King Blue Hotel:


Looks nice and comfortable! I find a lot of newer hotels go for style over substance.

Two thoughts: The lighting does not read correctly to me at either of the two upper levels.

It reads as a straight line, where is should sent light upward in a more substantial way.

Second, that High Pressure Sodium Street Light (orange hue) really takes away from the nighlighting effect.

Are these boarded-up / blocked windows going to be permanently blacked out like that??? seems like a HUGE misstep in engaging the intersection.
The other side of the window is a pretty nice looking lounge/restaurant but it doesn’t look open yet.

My guess is they’re just using the windows for advertisement while no one is using the space.
