1 Hotels Readies for Its Canada Debut

July 9, 2021


Luxury hotel company 1 Hotels is set to launch its first property in Canada next month in Toronto’s bustling King Street West neighborhood. Designed by New York-based Rockwell Group, 1 Hotel Toronto honors the brand’s mission of sustainability through its materiality and technical details, including property-wide water filtration as well as an onsite organic composter capable of reducing 12,000 pounds of organic waste to under 1,000 pounds of compost each month.

“We have long admired 1 Hotels’ sustainable and eco-friendly ethos, and we are thrilled to have been given the opportunity to design the new 1 Hotel Toronto with a biophilic emphasis,” says David Rockwell, founder and president of Rockwell Group. “Our vision for the hotel invites guests to celebrate Toronto’s ecology through materiality, program, and locally made artwork.”
