Toronto International Film Festival

The streets are buzzing with crowds dressed to the nines – they’re all dining in Yorkville, hurrying to catch a premiere or off to a ritzy party in King West. The Toronto International Film Festival is here for the 35th time since it was founded at The Windsor Arms Hotel back in ’76.

The glitz and glamour has always been centered in the heart of Yorkville, but this year the Entertainment District is certainly getting a lot of attention.

Toronto is buzzing about TIFF’s official new home ‘The Bell Lightbox and Festival Tower’ designed by the architectural firm KPMB, which stands tall at the corner of King and John.  As of today, construction crews are still working hard on the finishing touches, but the building already looks glamorous.

The official launch is this Sunday September 12, 2010 – TIFF and company are kicking it off with a free public block party from 11am – 4pm.

Inspired by Hollywood Luxury, The Festival Tower is a project unlike any other Toronto has seen before. The alluring tagline says it all “If a condominium could be compared to a film, Festival Tower would sweep the Oscars!” In true movie star style, even the suites are named after some of Hollywood’s most acclaimed celebrities.

Targeted towards Toronto’s elite, The Festival Tower welcomes residents and guests like a red carpet event with their red lobby doors. The purpose is to make you feel like a celebrity once you set foot inside. If the granite floors and walnut walls aren’t enough of a luxury statement, the condo offers residents a five star hotel service, which pampers them and takes care of their every need.

The Festival Tower isn’t completely sold out – so if living the celebrity lifestyle has always been a dream, you still have your chance to make it a reality!
