Broadview Hotel

This is what the new Broadview Hotel will look like

As the last remains of Jilly's are removed from the facade of the Broadview Hotel, a good picture of the historic building's future has finally been revealed. Earlier schematics showed that renovation efforts would include a four storey addition to the building, which appears in the above rendering as a slick-looking glass box that will add significant square footage without overpowering the historic character of the structure.

The addition will be more prominent when viewed from Broadview Ave. rather than Queen St. East, from which it will appear somewhat hidden at the back of the building. City staff have recommended that the alterations to the building be approved (this rendering comes via a heritage report), which means that today's picture will likely be very close to what the final product looks like.

The new iteration of the Broadview Hotel will also serve as a restaurant, cafe and events space. So, yes, as was always expected, this development will very much be like the east side version of the Gladstone Hotel, and perhaps even a bit nicer. Let us know what you think of the rendering in the comments.
