Kelly’s Landing, Toronto ON: The bustling streets of downtown Toronto will soon have a place where locals and visitors can stop to enjoy some relaxing dining with a refreshing outdoor atmosphere, as Kelly’s Landing prepares to open at the corner of Front Street West and University Avenue in the Spring of 2017. Kelly’s Landing, the newest location in The Landing Group of restaurants (a member of the Cara Operations Ltd. Group), will introduce a new architectural feature to the franchise’s innovative restaurant concepts; by featuring a retractable roof that opens up to the skies at the click of a button. This single-slope roof, measuring 30 feet by 44 feet, will bathe the restaurant’s dining and bar area in warm, inviting sunshine and fresh air, creating a dining experience that guests have never seen in a Landings Group restaurant until now.
The expansive retractable skylight will cover a large section of Kelly’s Landing, giving diners an attractive view of the skies above. The 44-foot length of the structure will be divided into three sections, each approximately 15 feet long, with custom-built motors that allow them to telescope under one another and park beneath a fixed glass panel. This retractable system has been designed in close collaboration with the restaurant’s design team, McMillan Design and architectural firm B+H Architects to ensure that it fits perfectly with the rest of the building’s architecture.
