SBE revealed plans to bring the Hudson hotel name from New York City to Toronto in 2024. The international hospitality group is working with Lamb Development Corp. and IE Hospitality on the proposed 75,000-square-foot project.

SBE plans for the Hudson Toronto to include 146 guestrooms and an array of culinary and nightlife experiences, including a rooftop restaurant. It is to be located next to St. Andrews Park, which the city is considering expanding into a giant green space. The Hudson Toronto is still subject to municipal approvals, with hearings scheduled for spring 2020.

"I am very proud to see the iconic Hudson Hotel take its legacy outside of New York in the cosmopolitan city of Toronto," SBE founder/CEO Sam Nazarian said in a statement. "This marks the beginning of the Hudson brand's global expansion and continuation of its innovation and well-known fame.
