London on the Esplanade is a complex of 2 towers joined together by 5 storey podium. One of the towers mimics the architecture of the historic industrial buildings in the Distillery District, and the other has the sleek, modern look of the nearby Financial District. The first tower is a smaller brick building with 103 spacious lofts and the second is a taller structure with an impressive glass façade that offers 272 suites with balconies. Like any good duo, the buildings effortlessly complement each other. In fact, upon its completion in 2009, the building was nominated for a Pug Award which celebrates excellence in architecture and planning.
The podium is a really interesting feature of the building because it seamlessly connects the two towers to each other and the street below. On the second floor is Club London, a collection of five star amenities including spa and massage rooms, a fitness centre, aerobics and yoga room, a party room with an English style pub, guest suite and a rooftop outdoor swimming pool with a whirlpool. And if that’s not enough, on the ground floor there is The Keg Steakhouse, retail shops and beyond the doors lies the wonders of Toronto’s Esplanade neighbourhood.
London on the Esplanade is next to the Humming Bird Centre for the Performing Arts and it’s only minutes away from the Air Canada Centre, St. Lawrence Market, the Distillery District, the Financial District and Harbourfront. Local favourites at your fingertips include the Beer Bistro, Ki Modern Japanese + Bar, Eight Wine Bar and Bier Market. With Union Station right nearby it also won’t be difficult to get a bus, train, streetcar or subway to literally anywhere in or out of the city.
