Breaking ground for Nobu

Nobu Toronto, featuring the world’s first Nobu branded highrise residences, will be located in the heart of the entertainment district on Mercer Street.

Chef Nobu Matsuhisa, Academy Award winner Robert De Niro, Hollywood producer Meir Teper, principals of Nobu Hospitality, along with Miguel Singer and Nelly Zagdanski, principals of developer Madison Group, officially broke ground on the highly anticipated Nobu Toronto – the world’s first integrated Nobu Residences, Nobu Hotel and Nobu Restaurant in the world.

The event celebrated Nobu’s fashionable style with acclaimed Taiko drumming ensemble Nagata Shachu ushering in the famed hospitality team alongside principals from Madison Group.

After remarks and receiving congratulations from Toronto Mayor John Tory and standing in front of a 40-foot 3D Nobu sculpture, Matsuhisa led a ceremonial sake toast. The stakeholders then picked up golden shovels and planted them in the dirt, signaling the project’s official groundbreaking.

“It’s an exciting project, our partners are terrific people and hopefully we do other things together too,” said De Niro.

“Thank you so much to Madison Group,” said Matsuhisa. “Next comes the hotel, residence and restaurant! I am so excited to be here today with all of my team and I’m looking forward to introducing my food to Torontonians.”

Many of the residential purchasers were thrilled to be in attendance, taking pictures in front of the sculpture and remarking about their excitement that the project was about to commence construction.

“It was just one year today that we announced this landmark development and we could not be more thrilled to share this day with our future residents, our Nobu Hospitality family, Mayor Tory and our partners at Westdale Properties and Adler Investments,” said Josh Zagdanski, VP highrise, Madison Group. “Nobu Toronto will be one of the most special destinations in Toronto and we are excited to bring this highly anticipated brand to Canada.”

“These principals have chosen to extend a globally respected brand into the combined food, hospitality and residential sector and we are just delighted that they have chosen Toronto to do that,” said Tory.

Nobu Toronto, a dynamic project featuring the world’s first Nobu branded highrise residences, as well as Canada’s first Nobu Hotel and Nobu Restaurant, will be located in the heart of the entertainment district on Mercer Street. Nobu Toronto will rise 45 storeys above the historic Pilkington Glass Factory with two dramatic residential towers.

Nobu is one of the world’s most celebrated luxury hospitality brands renowned for its award-winning cuisine and exceptional hotel offerings in the world’s most desirable locales.

Founded by Matsuhisa, De Niro and Teper, the growing Nobu Hospitality portfolio caters to vibrant international customers, celebrities, tastemakers and powerbrokers. The exclusive Nobu Hotel Toronto will offer a collection of 36 guest suites located atop the west tower, with stunning panoramic views and featuring the best of everything – from distinctive service to energized public spaces.

A cornerstone of the Nobu Hotel and Residences is Nobu Restaurant with its approximately 15,000-square-foot, two-level restaurant, signature bar lounge, outdoor seating and chic private dining rooms.

Construction is set to begin immediately.
