TORONTO — Celebrities in town for TIFF will soon have a new place to see and be seen: Nobu, co-founded by Academy Award winner Robert De Niro, will be launching a combination hotel and condo complex in Toronto.
The brand, back by De Niro as well as chef Nobu Matsuhisa and Hollywood producer Meir Teper, is building two 49-storey towers, which are set to include 700 condominium suites, hotel rooms and a 1,400-square-metre restaurant.
The first Nobu restaurant was launched in New York in 1993 and the brand has since expanded to cities including Beijing, Dubai, Las Vegas, London, Melbourne, Mexico City and Moscow.
Nobu hotels can be found in cities including Chicago, Malibu, Manila, Miami and Riyadh.
Toronto is the first city to have a restaurant integrated with Nobu-branded high-rise residences and a hotel, the company said Wednesday in a release.
Maybe someone should let them know they can still buy Trump Tower before they break ground.
