COMING SOON TO King Street West – from the mid $700,000’s
BIG’s new mixed-use development for Westbank and Allied REIT in Toronto.
A Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG)-designed redevelopment of 485-539 King Street West in Toronto, integrating a residential community with existing heritage properties on the site. Developed by Westbank Corp and Allied Properties REIT. This mixed-use development offers locals a public plaza that will create a new center for the community while connecting the various pedestrian pathways that crisscross the area.
The plaza is defined by two distinct atmospheres: a lushly landscaped forest paired next to an urban, hardscaped court. The balance of these perceived opposites is a reflection of Toronto’s current state of rapid redevelopment. Surrounding the plaza, King Street West provides residences, retail, boutique office spaces and restored heritage buildings.
The building has a total of 514 units and rises to the maximum height of 17 storeys. Each unit has and attached green terrace space and surround the large interior courtyard. BIG’s architectural style for this development is a complex interplay of stacked rectilinear units that creates quite an impact on the Toronto skyline.
Located in the heart of downtown Toronto and at the meeting point of three 20th century neighborhood parks, King St. West Condos gives residents access to just about everything. With a Walkscore of 99/100 and a transit score of 100, residents can enjoy easy access to local cafés, restaurants, shopping centres, parks and plenty of nightlife venues.
