Toronto’s iconic Park Hyatt hotel is getting a makeover.

The project is already under construction and the renovations aim to fully modernize the landmark.

The completed buildings will feature 219 luxury hotel rooms, 65 luxury rental apartments and high-end retail.

The heritage-designated south tower will be completely retained and restored — including the rooftop lounge — which is considered one of the city’s most famous bars.

The project’s architecture is being designed by KPMB Architects, known for their work on the Royal Conservatory of Music and the ongoing revitalization of Toronto’s Massey hall. The interiors are being designed by Studio Munge. Both are world-renowned firms based in Toronto.

Both the hotel and residences feature local Canadian materials – including limestone flooring from Owen Sound.

The hotel is slated to reopen in early 2020.
