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.
SBE tapped Peter Clewes, the principal of Toronto-based architectsAlliance, as the lead architect and The Design Agency to lead interior design on the Hudson Toronto.
The Hudson Toronto will be a part of SBE’s House of Originals. Other properties within this collection include the Sanderson and St. Martins Lane in London, 10 Karaköy in Istanbul and the Shore Club in Miami Beach, Fla.
SBE expects its global portfolio to encompass 29 hotels and more than 180 culinary, nightlife and entertainment venues by the end of the year.
