Tiff Light Box and Festival Tower (Festival Tower)

A high-rise condo at Toronto

The Festival Tower by The Daniels Corporation is located in the King West neighborhood, Toronto, in the heart of the Entertainment District, but it is also in the center of the annual Toronto International Film Festival scene. Residents may put on a pair of jeans and sneakers and take a brief elevator ride to get to the front of the queue for the must-see movies.

When the festival excitement wears off, inhabitants’ lives will remain just as exciting. With streets like King, Queen, Adelaide, and Richmond so near by, residents of 80 John can shop, dine out, or get an after-work drink without having to venture too far from home.

Highlights

Neighborhood

When the festival excitement wears off, inhabitants’ lives will remain just as exciting. With streets like King, Queen, Adelaide, and Richmond so near by, residents of 80 John can shop, dine out, or get an after-work drink without having to venture too far from home.

Aside from the TIFF Bell Lightbox, the Entertainment District is home to a plethora of other cultural institutions, hence the name. Residents can walk to the Royal Alexandra or Princess of Wales Theatres to see a live performance. Alternatively, people interested in live music might attend a performance at Massey Hall or see the Toronto Symphony Orchestra perform at Roy Thompson Hall.

Transportation

Residents may walk to the Yonge-University-Spadina line from St. Andrew Station, which is about 400 meters from the Festival Tower’s front doors. This travel may also be conducted underground thanks to the PATH, which is especially useful during the harsh winter months.

Alternatively, streetcars on King Street West will take passengers to nearby neighborhoods such as the historic Distillery District or Liberty Village, while streetcars on Spadina Avenue would take passengers through Chinatown and up to Spadina Station on the Bloor-Danforth line.

Drivers may take Spadina south to reach the Gardiner Expressway, a fast-paced expressway that runs east and west along the beaches of Lake Ontario. The 427 is just a short ride west from here, while the Gardiner will take you to the Don Valley Parkway’s base.

During festival season, living in the tower atop the TIFF Bell Lightbox has its advantages — and we don’t just mean being able to queue up early to secure decent tickets. Rather, upon moving into 80 John Street, Festival Tower residents are given a three-year membership that includes tickets to festival films, VIP parties, and other TIFF-related activities throughout the year.

Amenities

Kirkor Architects created both the TIFF Bell Lightbox and the Festival tower above, allowing the residential tower to mix perfectly with the cultural center below. As a result, residents have easy access to the theater, gallery, library, and restaurant located downstairs.

The building also has a number of party rooms with catering kitchens, but these are not your average condo common areas – the party rooms are extremely trendy in terms of condominium facilities. Residents also have access to a gym, sauna, and indoor pool, as well as a rooftop terrace, a business center with conference room, guest rooms, and, of course, a concierge to ensure everything goes well.
