Ponder for a moment the meaning of the marvelous Latin phrase Ne Plus Ultra, and you will have a sense of what awaits you at Festival Tower, the striking condominium residences atop Bell Festival Centre, the new home of the Toronto International Film Festival Group.â€¨â€¨Other words also capture its essence: e.g., nonpareil and quintessential, to name two. But for us, ne plus ultra best captures the style, spirit and sheer panache of Festival Tower. Something that is the perfect or ultimate expression of its kind. A world first. Quite simply, Festival Tower will be the purest expression of living luxuriously, and with a cinematic sensibility, in the heart of a great city, thanks in part to our unique connection to an institution destined to be one of the world centres of film culture, and the new home of North America’s most celebrated Film Festival.
So welcome to Bell Festival Centre and Festival Tower, a cultural and residential complex of remarkable beauty and class, which has instant global celebrity—and cachet.
The Toronto International Film Festival is now the most important film festival in North America—and many would argue the world. For ten days each September, stars and celebrities from around the world gather in Canada’s largest city, and soon Bell Festival Centre will be their home away from home. With its theatres, library, gallery and an array of meeting spaces, Bell Festival Centre will become the most important venue in the world devoted to an art form that transforms the way people see the world. And it will do so year round. To the residents of Festival Tower, however, this extraordinary institution is something else: a neighbour, a friend and a place to call home.
When Festival Tower’s interior designer Mike Niven chose red for the colour of your front door, he did so with purpose. When you and your guests arrive at Festival Tower, it is, implicitly, “an event.” A red-carpet event. Next door is the home away from home for stars and V.I.P.s from the film world. But at Festival Tower, you’re The Star, and you will feel it—live it—the moment you enter the lobby. Your “star treatment” begins with a friendly doorman. The watchful eye of the 24-hour concierge will assure your comfort and security, monitoring the building’s sophisticated security features and facilitating valet parking service as needed.
â€¨When Mike Niven was contemplating how the lobby space should “read,” he immediately thought “boutique hotel.” As Niven notes, “The lobby is transparent to John Street because of its floor-to-ceiling glass wall, and has a clean elegant look.” And, he also wanted it “to be filmic, and have a sense of light and movement.”
