First look: Historic Broadview Hotel to reopen in 2017 (RENDERING)

Sep 28 2016, 6:40 pm

The Broadview Hotel is set to open in 2017, and first indications suggest the 125-year-old local landmark will have never looked better.

Yes, we’re including when you knew it as Jilly’s.

Toronto company Streetcar Developments partnered with Canadian real-estate company Dream to revitalize the historic space.

According to a release, The Broadview Hotel (106 Broadview Avenue) will:

Boast 58 guest rooms, just under 4,000 square feet of event space, a ground floor restaurant, dynamic lobby café/bar, and a stunning rooftop patio, offering unimpeded views of Toronto’s cityscape and beyond.

Sounds pretty great to us. Especially when there won’t be any stripper polls getting in the way of after-dinner conversation.

In fact, a great deal of effort has gone into restoring the building – and its inner ambience – to halcyon days.

Our goal is to re-invigorate the architecture and culture of The Broadview Hotel, while respecting its history and original design,” said Les Mallins, President of Streetcar Developments. “By restoring the building, we hope to create a gathering place Riverside residents can be proud of, and a destination that all visitors to Toronto can enjoy.

You’ll also find such bespoke touches as vertical gardens, a glass atrium, and a menu that features the local produce of southern Ontario.

We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to see inside the 1891 heritage property in Riverside.

And just like that, saying ‘I’ll meet you at the corner of Broadview and Queen’ just got a hell of a lot cooler.
