“With King Street West, we wanted to find an alternative to the tower and podium you see a lot of in Toronto and revisit some of Safdie’s revolutionary ideas, but rather than a utopian experiment on an island, have it nested into the heart of the city. It would be strange if one of the most diverse cities in the world had the most homogenous architecture,” says Bjarke Ingels, Founding Partner, BIG. – News, Tips & Info On G.T.A.

“Habitat 2.0, 50 years after Moshe Safdie, at King Street West, Toronto”
King Toronto Condos is integrating a residential community with existing heritage properties on the site. The visionary design of the building ensures everyone has an enjoyable outdoor space. The building incorporates greenery throughout, and the modular design brings forth a new way we’re looking at developments and how they are incorporated into the existing cityscape.
At street level, a strong emphasis is being made on how the laneways connect and interact with the development, and surrounding spaces. There will be a street-level courtyard for the King West community.
Private terraces will be available at some units.
