Context King West is one of the most anticipated developments and, with this visionary project, the King West neighbourhood is in for a treat. Typically, the new condominium towers that have been springing up in Downtown Toronto have been constructed using glass and steel but Context Developments has chosen to go above and beyond with this ambitious building. Respecting the heritage of old King West, the developer and architects at Hariri Pontarini, are using brick, stone and white precast cladding to pay homage to the to neighbourhoods former warehouse aesthetic.
Context King West, currently in preconstruction with a due date of early 2016, will occupy the space between King St and Adelaide; more specifically it will reside at 620 King St. The original plans called for a 10-storey, 15 unit boutique loft but that has been scrapped for a higher-density development that will reach a height of 18-storeys, house 230 units and include ground floor retail, extensive green space and walkways through the entire complex.
The King West neighbourhood is a highly sought-after stretch of real estate that is lined with turn of the century historic buildings, independent gourmet restaurants, quite cafes and trendy shops. Young professionals and professionals young at heart are flocking to this area by the droves, which is what makes Context King West such an anticipated and well received project. With prices starting at $270,900, Context King West is a building for people who thrive in a warm, welcoming community where its shared spaces and organic architecture encourages connection.
