The group behind one of New York’s most popular hotels has its sights set on Canada’s largest city and is preparing to open its first international hotel here in Toronto.

sbe, a leading international hospitality group, is partnering with legendary Toronto developer Brad Lamb and IE hospitality to open the Hudson Toronto, with an opening date set for 2024.

The proposed 75,000 sq. ft. the project will be equipped with 146 rooms and will feature an array of sbe’s premium culinary and nightlife experiences, including a rooftop restaurant, a three-meal signature restaurant, an expansive bar and café, among other features to be announced.

Located at 445 Adelaide Street West, the hotel will be steps from the heart of Toronto’s vibrant King West neighbourhood.

“I am very proud to see the iconic Hudson Hotel take its legacy outside of New York in the cosmopolitan city of Toronto,” said sbe Founder and CEO Sam Nazarian.

“This marks the beginning of the Hudson brand’s global expansion and continuation of its innovation and well-known fame. We couldn’t be prouder to work with Lamb Development Corp and IE Hospitality, the most respected and well-known industry leaders, on this project and appreciate the trust they’ve put in sbe to bring one of the hospitality world’s true originals to Toronto.”

Lamb says the architecturally the hotel will be “stunning.” He added that since it’s a 146 room standalone hotel, with no condos, everything will be focused “100% on hotel guests.”

“Our rooftop bar/restaurant overlooks the park and the skyline. It’s going to be a hot ticket,” said Lamb.

The Hudson Toronto is an integral part of sbe’s global expansion plan, which already has hotels in a number of global cities including Paris, Dubai, Buenos Aires, and Mexico City to name a few.

The project is subject to municipal approvals with hearings scheduled for Spring 2020.
