SAMM Developments has broken ground on Regal Plaza Corporate Centre, a $104 million, 335,650 square foot mixed-use business complex at 600 Dixon Rd. (at Martin Grove Rd.) in Toronto.
The new Corporate Centre is located near Highway 401, 427 and 27, next to the existing Holiday Inn Toronto-Airport East hotel, and a short drive to Toronto Pearson Airport.
This complex will consist of an 11-storey above-grade Staybridge Suites hotel and a commercial condo centre, with two new underground parking levels offering 295 spots and a new atrium connecting it with the existing hotel. Completion is slated for Spring 2023.
“The new atrium will feature skylights and is designed to resemble an indoor courtyard with seating areas and greenery to accommodate exhibits and business presentations,” said SAMM’s Project Director Mark Robertson. “It will also encompass a breakfast area and lounge. On the ground floor, the café and retail shops will serve tenants and guests of both hotels; the new Staybridge Suites, the InterContinental Hotels & Resorts (IHG) upscale extended-stay brand, and the existing Holiday Inn brand hotel. Levels 2, 3 and 4 will encompass a total leasing space of 64,820 square feet of commercial office condos, with 750 square foot modules that can be combined to create larger spaces. On the penthouse level, a banquet hall will be available for large gatherings.”
Jonathan Lund, InterContinental Hotels Group’s Regional Vice President, Canada, said, “When completed, this 193-room property will be the 13th Staybridge Suites hotel in Canada, adding to the more than 310 Staybridge Suites properties across the world. Floors 5 to 11 will house our new 136,464 square-foot Staybridge Suites. Guests will also have access to numerous amenities including laundry facilities, an exercise room, outdoor patio with BBQs, a swimming pool, meeting rooms and shuttle service to Toronto Pearson Airport.”
Regal Plaza Corporate Centre “is being constructed to meet the TIER-1 Toronto Green Standard. More than 50 construction jobs are now confirmed”, added SAMM Developments Mark Robertson.
