KING TORONTO CONDOS BY WESTBANK
Something amazing is set to come to King West. Two big developers (Westbank and Allied Properties) and BIG architect are in the process of developing a complex that has never been witnessed anywhere in Toronto. This is a new condominium project that will feature 12-16 story towers. The project is located at 489-533 King Street West in the Toronto neighborhood between Spadina Avenue and King Street West. The condo project is still in its pre-construction stage. It will be composed of a total of 514 condo units for mixed use.
The concept of the project was aimed at avoiding footprints of the already existing podiums and towers in the city. In fact, according to the founding partner of Bjarke Ingels Group, it makes no sense to have a city with homogenous structures and this is why the architect came up with an innovative design for this project. The pixelated-look that extrudes upwards and falls downwards makes it entirely distinct. It will create spaces for residential houses, retail as well as boutique offices. The unparalleled design makes it an iconic structure and the focus on green space renders it a standalone project of its own kind. The development will also create a distinct center for the Toronto community by connecting various pedestrian paths that cross the area. With a public plaza at the center, the building looks like a traditional perimeter block.
The pixelated sets will be rotated at an angle of 45 degrees from the grid of the street. This is aimed at limiting obstruction while improving exposure to air and natural sunlight. Additionally, the rolling façade is specially designed to convey an additional green space. Condo Highlights

Due to the impressive design of the building, the units will be broken down into several modules that will give residents great topography and outstanding views of the surrounding street. The peaks will be reclined back to allow maximum light for both the street and the courtyard. The plan also features a restoration of the four major heritage buildings.
Other spectacular features of this project include the larger than the normal number of 2-3 bedroomed units. The structure also includes various knock-out panels that will make it easy to coalesce the small units to create larger ones in the future if need be.
The suites are designed to provide a decent standard of living with laminated flooring and fully developed kitchen. The kitchen has stone countertops and also comes with stainless steel appliances, stacked washer, and dryer.
The most fascinating feature of this project is the proposed public courtyard which will take more than 21,000 square feet of space. The courtyard will comprise two different elements i.e. hemlock forest and urban court. The professional hemlock forest will provide both visitors and residents with a natural setting. The court will be composed of an exceptional outdoor seating, commercial and ground-floor retail section. On the southeastern corner, a secret garden will again be established behind one of the renovated heritage structures.
